I should think that the men in your party should fit into the Island Star perfectly. I think Island Cruises are aimed specifically at people that don't want to dress up for special occasions. I think a cardy would be a good idea, just in case. Why should you ladies take a jacket if the men can't be bothered? Happy cruising.

Hi - we went also in August (Last Year) on the Island Star and due to go again on 27.07.08. We went to the one of the more formal restaurants - I wore a Jacket, no tie others just had trousers and open neck shirt, as long as you are tody.smart no problems. I just wouldnt go in jeans. It is very relaxed. Evenings were lovely , the odd night was a bit brezzy as you out in the middle of the sea and moving quite fast. My wife took her small cardigan and was pleased to have it even though she used it only occasionall.

Hi We went last August, honestly it has a very informal dress code. There are several eating places, a very casual diner where shorts were worn alot, then the slightly formal where the men wore shirts (open necked) and casual trousers so smart casual, the food in there is great with no extra cost! or al a carte formal suits/ties etc plus you have to pay for the food, never went in there as the others were great! Enjoy! It was a great holiday. We are going again this year. The richards family.

Smart but Casual on Island cruises. We are sailing for our 7th time with Island cruises in July. There are some people use the Lido decks restaurant in the evening but feel some passengers dont dress for this one, wear shorts who wants to dress like this in the evening. Its nice after a long hot day to shower and get dressed up for your eveing meal. They do have ladies nights when Ladies get a chance to go a step further with dress code a little bit more refined dress wear. Lets face it when do we get the chance to dress up like that at home.The Oasis restaurant and the Steak hose your dress code is more formal but you do not need a suit or Jacket. ladies yes I would take a little cardi for on deck in the evening.

A Port guide to Le Havre

By Trevor Smith

I’ve done a couple of cruises now that visit Le Havre but on both occasions, I chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the facilities there. Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Me, my husband and my two children have just returned from a long weekend away in Southampton and on the Celebrity EclipseThe cruise was only two nights so I though to extend our little holiday by spending two nights in Southampton before the sailing and take them to a theme park. So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs. Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
