Due to travel on the Sea Princess in December. I understand that for a 14/15 day cruise there will be 3 formal nights.
On the sea princess last new year and 95 % wore the the full tux and looked wonderful, ladies wore loads of bling most nights and as soon as we returned i went out and bought more bling in the sales!! CRUISE REVIEW and cruise critic states this is a dressy ship!!!
The ship is fully air conditioned so should be no real 'hot' problems.
We went on the sea princess at the end of june and whilst we were cruising the med, as Blyth says the ship has air conditioning,so it doesn't matter where you are.We had 3 formal nights on our 14 night cruise and we dressed up on all 3 nights,and we really enjoyed it,most people did the same I think and everyone looked splendid.Enjoy your cruise whatever you decide to do.
Hi we also on 1st Nov cruise so tell your husband I am wearing my tux so at least he wont be the only one!
On a 15 night cruise in the caribbean there will be 3 formal nights. Most people do dress up for formal nights. men generally wear tuxedos, but there are some men who wear simple jacket and tie. You do not have to dress up on formal nights but you may be refused entry into the main dining rooms if you are not in suitable clothing.
We were on the caribbean cruise during Easter 2008 and we only attended two out of the three formal nights. However, just because you're not dressed up doesn't mean you cannot wander around the atrium, shops and bars as other people. As for the 'heat', sea princess is well air conditioned and as the holiday progressed and we became 'aclimatised' to the heat, we often found it a little chilly some evenings!
All these type of questions are answered in their detailed pack which should arrive 6 weeks before your cruise.
We were on the Sea Princess last year my husband hated wearing his tux so he's not packing it for our cruise in November, we will be eating in the Horizon Court every night, we prefare it anyway as he is fussy and I don't eat meat and it takes too long to have dinner served it the main dinning room.
