No. It also depends which cruise line you are holidaying with, which ship and the duration of your trip. A 14 night cruise in the Caribbean (with Princess) will mean 3/4 formal nights. Other nights it is smart/casual ('normal' clothes you'd wear to a local restaurant). Most people do dress up for formal nights but you don't have to, although you may not be allowed into the main dining rooms if you are not in suitable attire. We only did one formal night. The other two nights we wore smart/casual and dined at the 24-hour buffet. In fact, it was sometimes difficult to distinguish between those who were formally dressed and those who were not.

My Visit to see the MS Emily Bronte

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I was luck enough to be invited to see the new MS Emily Bronte. This was only a day trip but worth it all the same. An early start to the day travelling to Birmingham to be met by Riviera representatives and then a short flight to Dusseldorf followed by an hours transfer to where the ship was. I can see why River Cruises are very popular. Compared to an ocean Liner that are huge in size, River cruises give you a more intimate feel and are able to get into the heart of Cities. Some with excurs...
