Well Saunders. My wife and I have recently returned from a cruise on Marco polo. The male passengers on our trip wore a mixture of lounge suits and evening dress/tuxedo and not a head was turned so dont worry and enjoy your cruise. Peter, Bexle.

I would think that wearing either would be fine if you only have a lounge suite take that,if you need to buy one then a tux is the cheaper option,not having sailed with this line i hope you get more info?

It is some time since we were on the Marco Polo, but found it a very friendly and pleasant ship. I took a tuxedo and felt that it fitted in perfectly. The Fillipino crew were so pleasant and helpful, you should have no problems about feeling out of place. Enjoy your cruise as I am sure you will.
