Done 2 red white and blue nights with fred olsen. They provided us with flags and hats. All you have to take is white trousers or slacks. (or even cream) Red or blue shirts in fact anything that will mix and match with these colours. I wore (female) white trousers red blouse and a blue chiffon scarf. Other half wore cream trousers blue short sleeve shirt and a red bow tie. You will love it! Dont worry!
Many passengers don't bother to dress up for theme nights on Fred. Olsen vessels. Therefore if you wish to dress up for British don't over the top or you will feel out of place. I just don a Union Jack tie and my partner drapes a Union Jack scarf over her shoulders.
Whats wrong with getting into the spirit of theme nights?
In my experience people go from the full thing - glitzy Union Jack dress or coat for gents - to just the three colours down to not bothering at all. Anything goes, just enjoy!
We had a Red White & Blue night on The Black Watch it was great fun, just wear anything in those colours ie. blue trousers, white shirt & red tie etc. We didn't know about it when we sailed but good old Fred supplied us with Union Jack flags U J bow ties and U J bowler hats, all the crew were dressed up too so you will not be out of place. The crew formed an improptu choir and sang patriotic songs like Rule Britannia & Jerusalem just like the Last night of the Proms. Have fun.
I found my union jack clothes at union jack wear web site , look at unionjackwear.co.uk .
One never knows what might be sprung on a cruise and you cannot always have a spare suitcase full of Fancy Dress clothes unless you are a fanatic. Like the previous writer, the round Britain cruise on Balmoral included a RWB night, I happened to have a RWB shirt fresh from M & S and a red tie. My wife had red blouse, white trousers and blue scarf. Most people entered into the spirit and with Fred olsen union jacks to wave and patriotic songs in the Theatre after dinner, we had a Last Night at the Proms experience.
Go the full hog, my wife and I do, it is good fun and no one will put you down- in fact the reverse. Enjoy yourselves.
Thank-you to you and all that have answerd we are off this afternoon will give a review as soon as we get back, merry xmas and a peacefull new year to you all.
What about fred olsen hawaiian and country and western theme nights
