Armstrong - Answered a Question by Potter-Meakin (05 Aug 08 23:34)

I have cut and pasted from Cunard's owbn site the question answered below. I too am booked for the QV 2009 full world cruise and yes agree it is difficult to pack all those formal dresses not to mention dinner suits, and lounge suits for the men. The Cunard line do have a dry cleaning service on board and they also have laundry facilities. Yes I know you cant wash and press formal dresses so what I intend to do is be selective on the amount of formal nights we attend and have our meals in the Buffet area at least that way you can cut down on the amount of dry cleaning. Also remember that not everyone will be on the full cruise and people will be leaving/joining at various stages throughout. Besides what does it matter if we were the same gown a few nights each time just dress your dress up with a different shawl and piecve of jewellery, anyway if they are all on the full world cruise we are all in the same boat (excuse the pun). Enjoy your cruise whenever you are sailing. Do I have to dress for dinner every evening? One of the great thrills of a Cunard cruise is the sheer glamour of the evenings. Generally, evening dress may be either formal, informal or casual when your ship is at sea, and informal or casual when your ship is in port. There will be a maximum of three formal nights in a week. Evening attire, effective from 6pm, will be specified in your ship’s Daily Programme, delivered to your stateroom each day. Dress codes are defined as follows: Formal: Black tie or formal dark suit for men. Evening dress or other formal attire for women. Informal: Jacket and tie for men. Cocktail dress or trouser suit for women. No jeans. Elegant Casual: Jacket, no tie required for men (no jeans or shorts). Dress, skirt or trousers for ladies.

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...

Mini Cruise ? Taster Cruise.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cruise Companies do offer itineraries for less than 7 nights. Some call them mini cruise, some taster but whatever you call them do not think they are a waste of time. For the new to cruise market this can be an amazing experience to sample the whole experience. For the seasoned cruisers who may have less time to spare these too will fit the bill.Now any duration shorter than a week cannot offer much variety of ports, however with a bit of planning you can get the most from a short visit. The...

Women Only Cruising: Sexist or Smart?

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So I read a really interesting article recently about a tour company that is poised to start running Women Only Cruising.At first I thought, what a great idea, why should women be subjected to our bloke-ish ways on their holidays, and if the shoe was on the other foot and if the article read Men Only Cruising, i’d be thinking yeah that sounds like great fun, no screeching women, crying, nagging, handbags everywhere etc ………Oh no wait, I wouldn’t say that, because ...
