I'm not quite sure why you are asking such a question. If there is any significant difference betqween informal and smart casual, it certainly escapes me, and I'm quite sure no-one on the ship would find any difference.

On Fred Olsen ships there is a significant difference between 'Informal' and 'Casual'. On Informal nights gentleman are requested to wear a lounge suit, or jacket and tie. On Casual nights gentleman can dispense with a jacket.

Just returned from a fantastic cruise around the Adriatic...... informal evenings just mean a tie or jacket so you could get away with no jacket. I took one jacket and several ties and this was fine. Enjoyed the three formal evenings when everyone was extremely smart and most people seemed to try hard with outfits for the themed evenings. All the best Gavin Turner.

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at www.CRUISE.co.uk our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that!
