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.

Shirt & trousers would be fine.

Paying for a sunbed?

By Lisa West

Would you pay to guarantee a sunbed??As you all know in the world of cruising if you want to have the best cabin on the ship in the best position then you pay for the privilege. The higher and more midship you go then the more expensive it is. Once your onboard and settled in to your cabin next stop is going up deck to find yourself a nice sunbed thats in a good position not too far from the bar in a nice sunny spot.Now as we all know if its a day at sea and youre not quick off the blocks so...

Rosie Taylor's blog

 Well I have finally got my money back for my Monarch flights!After the collapse in September last year, 5 months seems so long to wait for a refund.Its been a long wait and at one point I did wonder if I was going to get it back. The sad news last year left some holiday makers stranded overseas and out of pocket. The poor Monarch staff were left stunned and jobless.Monarch had been in trouble the year before and the high costs of fuel and stiff competition became too much for the busine...
