Hi Stevenson, I am also on the classic Caribbean on 4th December flying from Manchester. No Captain's cocktail party as far as I know from other reviews, talking to people who have been on Island Star and e-mails to the company. There may be a "ladies night" but that is also fairly casual going by a previous experience on Island Escape. I much prefer this situation - its either a formal cruise with casual nights or a casual cruise with formal nights. On this cruise it is casual - not so casual that one can stroll from the sun decks to the restaurants I hope.
