No you do not NEED a Dinner Jacket. I like to wear one, but just a suit and tie would do. Since this ship is of an American line and cruising out of Copenhagen, it will be full of mainly American cruisers, and I expect that they will treat the formal evenings with less enthusiasm than most British people do. Don't splash out on a DJ unless you want to make a point about dressing up for formal nights, as I most certainly would! Happy cruising.

I always wear a plain dark suit with an inexpensive white formal shirt (anything with the buttons concealed) and impressive bow tie (try M&S, BHS for both or Tie Rack for the bow tie). The suit will do for work or general wear when you return rather than just sit in the wardrobe and gather dust. The suit will also do for the semi formal evenings with a different colour shirt and tie. Don't forget you have a weight limit on the flight so every saving helps. Have a nice holiday.

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
