On a 2 week fly cruise to the Caribbean there will usually be 4 formal nights (Black tie or lounge suit - over 90% at least will be in black tie) and then 10 smart casual nights. Even on smart casual nights you cannot wear shorts in any of the bars. Usually the dress code is expected to be adhered to in all bars. Smart casual means long trousers, shirt, can be short sleeved and now smart jeans are allowed but you will not see many of those. Hope this helps. Have a great time.

No. No sports bar and as Freemantle says over 90% of people dress for dinner. Dont feel out of place try and adhere to the dress code. If you cannot join the rest who make the effort, there is always room service! What ever you do have a great time. But if you are always in suits try open necked shirts, casual trousers and a jacket, on semi formal nights, short sleeve shirts and trousers on casual nights. But on formal nights try and look the part. i.e. a suit or D.J Its well worth the effort.

There's no casual nightspot as such on Oceana. If you don't fancy dressing up, you can get away with having dinner at the Plaza Buffet (which has a bar...albeit a very quiet one) - although shorts in the evening is probably pushing it. I'm not a huge fan of dressing up (I usually wear a suit for work), but that said its acutally quite fun. And yes, pretty much everyone else does it.

A Right Royal Caribbean Dress ...

By Hannah Wilson

Over the last few years there has been a general drift towards more casual attire during the evening on certain cruise lines. P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...

New Ban hits flights from UK ...

We have all been horrified by the news recently of the terror attack that took place in Westminster and in particular on Westminster Bridge. It was devastating to hear that a Police Office lost his life along with other innocent people who were walking on the Bridge that day. They say the attack took 86 second in total but will have a lifetime effect on many. My Brother in Law works in the Houses or Parliament and, in his words, was told to run for his life when the attack was taking place ne...
