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 .

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit.

Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
