If you are talking about Ocean Village cruises, I don't believe there is a dress code onboard! It is for people who don't do cruises after all! So long as you are reasonably decent in the main eating areas I think that you can wear more or less what you like, when you like. Not for me I am afraid! Happy cruising.

This has been copied straight from the OV website under FAQ's. What should I pack? The beauty of Ocean Village is that there are no set formal or semi-formal dress codes on board. Casual wear is always fine - all we ask is that you cover-up when eating or drinking inside the cafes, bars and restaurants. The only place where you may want to dress up a bit on board is in The Bistro, where things are more smart casual and you may want to push the boat out for those special occasions. Please note that if you are on a Stay and Cruise holiday you may be required to wear smart casual clothes/long trousers for dinner at some hotels. back to top .

Ocean Village appeals strongly to mostly first-time-type passengers by "tearing up the cruising rule book" and targeting the "Dress Down Friday" generation. The go-getting "Dress Down" generation is in favor of casual dress, sporty activities, eating when you please, standup comics and rock concert-style entertainment. Casual is the order of the day on Ocean Village; none of its restaurants have dress codes (though most passengers dress respectably when coming indoors). There are no formal evenings, so these cruises are heaven for those who like to travel light.

Tipping on board cruise ships

By Renee Gagen

Tipping on board cruise ships has always been a problem, many customer’s like to do this, many don’t, I’m a person that doesn’t like to be told how much I should give and who to give it too and is it getting out of control the amount that cruise lines are putting these up by?Many people think it’s just on cruise ship but many holiday destinations you have to tip places so what is the recommended amount that you should tip?

The latest technology available in the near v=future on Royal Caribbean is facial recognition. the latest technology is already functioning on Allure of the seas and oasis of the seas and will be found on 13% of the fleet.So what does this mean?It means passengers can now check in really quickly thanks to their pre loaded photo, open their cabin doors without a keycard and a luggage tracker will monitor their bags and send them an alert once the luggage has arrived to the cabin. Is this a ste...

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...
