It varies ship to ship and cruise itineraries come into play as well, plus I suppose the number of parents with children but as a rule of thumb I would say that on RCI the percentage of men wearing DJs or Tux would be between 65% to 75%. .... Neil As always I'm open to differing views.

Having been on 3 RCI cruises,I would say that if you are specifically saying a tux or dinner jacket,I would say 50 to 60 percent,with the remainder smart suits or otherwise.

Its funny.we have done 2 RCI cruise's and thought that most would have dinner suits/jkts etc but we noticed that about half did and the rest were smart suits etc....so its what you like/afford at the time............. We would say if your going to do more than a couple of cruise's..its easy to get the bug WE DID.......then it may be worth investing in one.........happy cruiseing.........

Neil's right....Itinerary, Ship, Time of year, School Hol's, Part of the World, Length of Cruise, all have an impact. Put into context, the older ships of the fleet doing 4/5 day Caribbeans out of Miami attract the Stag/Hen Party crowd with little, if any Tuxs. Whereas 12/14 nighter on the newer ships round the Med, outside school hols, bring out more bling in general.

Could you also advise on what is suitable attire for a 2 year old boy in the restaurant on RCI on formal evenings. Are they expected to be in formal wear (a suit) or are smart trousers and a shirt acceptable? Many thanks.

We had 2 days in Copenhagen prior to the cruise and stayed at the Admiral Hotel which is in Nyhavn. The hotel is situated on the river and is a great location close to the Amalienborg Palace. We had a lovely couple of days sightseeing and used the hop ...

Party Animal At My Age?

By Jill Johnson

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
