The simple answer is that you dress smartly as if you were going out for an evening when you are in your home town. I may be a little old fashioned, even though I am only 49, but I always wear a jacket and tie in the evening when I am on a cruise, and go the whole hog and wear a dinner jacket on formal nights! My partner dresses likewise in a cocktail dress on informal nights and a ballgown with jewellery on formal ones. We can dress like slobs any night of the week at home if we wish, why should people want to do it on a luxury cruise with 5 course dinners, West End style shows and casinos at their beck and call? It really beats me! Dress to impress for Gods sake! That's what going on a cruise is all about to most people. Happy cruising.

The cruise news which is the ships newspaper tells you what the dress code is every night- usually smart casual- dress trousers, shirt tie/no tie, women wear dress trousers, dress tops or dresses- anything they wish really, just like you would dress for a night out in a pub/club.

I have booked a last minute cruise on the Destiny starting on Thursday 4th September - I am fully intending to take smart trousers for the night-time , so does anyone feel there is a need to take jeans at all as it seems u cant wear them on a night-time? (thinking about the 20kg luggage restriction!).

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Well I am back from my Italian holiday and I paid a visit to Trento, the capital city of Trentino Alto Adige in the north of Italy nestled between the Alps. The drive to Trento was lovely and the view driving through by car was amazing, we were surrounded my mountain by their white tips all the way there. Verona to Trento is about 1 hour and there are good train connections.We visited an Aeronautical museum of Giovan Battista Caproni, one of the most important engineers of Aeroplane’s h...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
