Neil Down - Answered a Question by Downes (12 Jul 08 14:01)

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.
