Wish I could carry his case!!. I take a formal suite for formal night and ALSO a suit for semi-formal nights!!. You should be able to hire a suit on board but give them a ring and let them know your husbands measurements.
Men!! Just pack the suit. My husband was VERY reluctant to wear a DJ before we cruised and now he wears it more than his loung suit. Tell him it's very sexy - see if that does the trick. It never did James Bond any harm.
Lol. so funny, thanks everyone for your answers.as it turned out once onboard he totally embraced the whole thing, and ended up hiring a tux. he felt very James Bond in the dining room...and the casino. In fact he manged to win back the money it cost to hire the suit! it was a fantastic night, and oveall cruise. to anyone else in same boat, the tux hire is for the week so you can wear it both nights, $99 in total.with two shirts. thanks again everyone!
Sen your answer how do you go about hiring tux do you do it before you sail or can you do on board thought it would be a lot handier than bringing one with you thank you jim.
Pack the suit for him. You will stick out like a sore thumb if you don't, and be banished from the dining room to eat in the self-serve cafe.....! Formal nights are great fun and we don't get enough opportunities to get dressed up these days. You can hire it on board, think it is about $99 but for that cost you can get one in Tesco or off eBay. RCI now do the tuxedo hire themselves - call them to ask.
I'm sure he will enjoy wearing the DJ, but a shirt and tie will suffice for formal nights without you being 'banished from the dining room' - thats what I'll be wearing on our VOS med cruise in a weeks time. The dress code is 'suggested', with only shorts etc being a def no-no.
Get a new husband. Or try the flattery techniques suggested by previous reply. Tell him the thought of him in a suit makes you weak at the knees!
Or tell him he goes without unless he smartens up. I wouldn't let him spoil a second of my cruise! .Ida.
Now that this poor soul is under so much pressure, can we have a photo of him in the left hand column, in his DJ on your return? Try Matalan also for a bargain DJ. Regards.
