Hi Helene If you go to P & O Cruises website it shows on the top of the itinerary how many formal nights they will have (usually when it's a day at sea). Strongly recommend P & O! Men do not have to wear black/white dinner jackets they can wear smart lounge suits. If your husband does want a dinner suit Matalan can supply -dinner jacket £35, Trousers £15,dress shirt including black dickie bow £12 - he will have it then for all the next cruises you will want to go on!!. I found a long black skirt and different `sparkly' tops were useful for formal evenings. Don't let the clothing worry you just book it and you certainly will enjoy it!

Depends on the cruise line. NCL will have a right old missmash of styles on formal nights. Celebrity are more formal at dinner, but with a mix of styles, suits as well as DJs. P&O/Princess will be pretty much all DJs on formal nights. Med cruises of 14 days generally have 3 formal nights, a middle day as well as 'sail away' & 'Captain's farewell'.

Fashion point - men do not wear white jackets unless [a] they are waiters or [b] you are cruising south of the equator..!! Tell him that a suit is fine - and a few floaty Per Una dresses will be perfect for you.

Depends on the cruise line. some have no formal dining and therefore no formal dinners. even where there is more formal dining, on a week cruise you might expect 2 gala/formal night, 2 casual and the rest what they class as informal. on the ships that i ahve been on, for men the gala evenings it is acceptable for men to wear a suit or dinner jacket, although i have seen some with just a shirt and tie and no jacket at all. for ladies, the programme advisesd cocktail or evening dress. i tend to wear full length dresses a) because i hev them and b) because i just love the oppoertunity to dress up. however i'd say that most dont wear full length dresses and that a cocktail dress or even a summer dress that you could dress up with some jewellrey or accessories would be fine, some ladies were 2 piece evening outfits too. i'd suggest that you should decide whether you want a more formal or informal cruise. onc eyou have decided that and have chosen your cruise line/ship, you can check dress code with them or on here with other reviewers who have been on that particular ship, hope this help.

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...

Tell me what is on your Bucket List

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...
