It's rare to see many men of any age in jackets on Informal Nights these days. Smart trousers, shirt/tie & shoes is more the norm. Be aware though, on Formal Nights I have witnessed guys turned away from the Main Dining Room on Galaxy for not wearing a jacket, & directed towards alternative dining.

When are you sailing? On all sailings on or after August 1, 2008, the dress code will no longer include "informal" nights - There will be "smart casual" nights and "formal" nights only, on all sailings fleetwide. From my experience Celebrity DOES enforse the dress code and I have seen people being turned away from dining room for not having jacket/tie on formal night. Also you are expected to remain in formal dress for whole evening. It only costs a few £ to buy a suit in Tesco or Asda - if you can afford the cruise you can afford to buy this too? On Informal night jacket, or at least long sleeved shirt and tie are expected.

Thankyou both for your answers, they both have dinner jackets and dickie bows for formal nights, and they look gorgeous, however, by the time my daughter and I have packed all our outfits, there is not too much room left in the suitcase for the boys (shame) and on a fly cruise our luggage space is limited.

Hi! Couldn't help noticing you referred to 'The Suitcase'. You are allowed a suitcase each + hand luggage each if your flying. Happy Packing!

Some of you may know that last week myself and my colleague Nicola were lucky to have been chosen to have 4 nights in Hong Kong to do some sightseeing and testing out tours for us as a company to be then able to recommend and sell for our pre and post cruise stays in Hong Kong and also on stop overs. This was my first trip to the Far East and Hong Kong was a place on my Bucket List which I can now cross off.We flew via Abu Dhabi to Hong Kong with Etihad Airways and as me and Nicola live oppos...

Mansion before our Wedding.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I got married recently and if you read my previous blog youll see it was in Florida. I wanted to share some photos of the villa we stayed in. It was more of a mansion to be fair. Twelve bedrooms and 15 bathrooms it was well equipped to look after the 20 of us who stayed there.To start the holiday off we flew business class with Virgin Atlantic. I know 20 people in one place sounds like a lot but the size of this place was enough to provide everyone with their own space and you never felt like...
