No worries, we are the same. For a week long cruise with Thomson there is one formal night and it is very easy to avoid it. There are plenty of other places to be and another option for dinner on that night so that you can let those who like to dress up and meet the captain get on with it. The dress code is generally smart casual, but this is not always adhered to - which is a bit of a pity but, to be fair, its your holiday and really as long as you do not cause offence, anything (pretty much) sees to be ok.

Asda have been selling Dress Suits for £35 & certainly look the part. That's half the price of a pair of trainers......I rest my case....Wilba.

A suit, shirt and tie or even a blazer and trousers, shirt and tie would be acceptable if you wanted to go to the formal dinner otherwise the buffet will be open with a similar menu.....other evenings its smart casual for the main restaurant....and as the other poster said it is only one formal night a week!!

Thanks for that. It's certainly put my mind at rest! Yes, it's nice to look smart for evening meals but suits and DJ's - don't think so. Smart casual will suit us nicely. Thanks again.

Like your husband i don't possess a DJ BUT DON'T worry because he won't need one, my wife and I went on a Thompson cruise 18 months ago and it was fine with me either just wearing a nice shirt or on formal nights a suite.... enjoy your cruise, ps. we will be going to Norwegian Fyords in July 09 and we can't wait .
