Please do not worry i am sure that your outfits will be fine i have travelled Cunard many times & found that the older ladies dressed with grace more than style wear sensible shoes as it is a very big ship with lots of walking you will love the ship .

First of all you have made a wonderful choice and should concentrate on thinking on how much you will enjoy the experience rather than on your `finery` which I am sure will be great. The major differences are that QM2 was built as a liner not a cruise ship and that atmosphere comes across and most of the people that travel on her recognise this rather than perhaps recognising the atmosphere generated by other lines which may be more akin to Centre Parks or in some cases Butlins. They are catering for different markets and different requiremnts eg if I had a young family I would go RCI and not Cunard but if I want to dress for dinner and a more elegant atmosphere I would go Cunard and if I wanted an older atmosphere I would go Fred Olsen or Saga and if I wanted meat and two veg and saloon bar at the pub I would go P&0. It is all about horses for courses but don't be put off Cunard you will have a wonderful and elegant time I am sure.

We went on the QM2 in January. Formal nights - some men in Tux's some in smart suits. Some women in trouser suits some in gowns. Don't worry, as long as you look smart anything goes. Black evening trousers combined with some colourful soft tops, a bit of bling and a scarf can look stunning. So just go and enjoy yourself and don't worry.

Royal Princess

By Emily Watts

 Last week I was lucky enough to experience Royal Princess which was also my first time on a Princess ship. It was everything I expected and more. as soon as we got on board I was impressed with the decor and the grandness, it really is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
