You might feel out of place if it was on a smart casual night unless you were, perhaps, going to a speciality restaurant, but on a formal night the majority of passengers dress in formal clothes on Celebrity ships. ...... Neil.
Celebrity is a 5 star line & Formal dress is expected on formal nights......Wilba.
I'm just back from 10 nights on Celebrity Galaxy, and was on Summit for 3 weeks in March/April. On both cruises many passengers dressed in suits or smart 'cocktail' clothes outside of formal nights. I note that Celebrity now have only two styles of dress - formal and 'smart casual +', implying that they would like it if people opted for smarter than 'smart casual'.
Having cruised on the Summit around Hawai and the Galaxy Transatlantic we had 3 formal evenings on each cruise. Semi-formal evenings were smart dress code although the Brits tended to make more of an effort than the Americans. You are informed in your news letter each day as to what the dress code is for each evening in the main restaurant.
There were three formal nights on the Baltic cruise we did on Constellation last year and we found most people made an effort and dressed in Dinner jackets aand formal dresses (not necessarily long ones

Enjoyed our second Summit Med cruise in Sept '08. I forgot just how good Celebrity is compared to some other cruise lines. The majority of people on board are in the mid - older age group and dress very smart. You will not be out of place if you choose to dress up every evening, my daughter (15) spent all day planning what to wear!
I recommend the speciality restaurant ($20 pp cover charge); it was superb, food to die for and exceptional service. Tip - It is really busy on the sea days and don't wait until the last couple of nights because you will definitely want to book again. Have a great time.
