M&S do a nice DJ/suit for £49.50. I'm sure that will be much cheaper than hiring and considering the cost of the cruise - it's a paltry additional cost. Your menfolk will feel much better meeting the dress code especially on Cunard. Go on - you can persuad them. Have a lovely cruise and be sure to get a photograph of them all dressed up. .......... Andy.
Not that i have hired one, i belive that it is in the region of $110 per day? much better to buy.
I would go along with our Reading correspondent and say that it is cheaper to buy than to rent plus should you like it you can use it again and again. The thing I'm having difficulty believing is that here we have someone from Malvern who doesn't have a DJ. Well,well,well. ....... Neil.
Thanks guys! We'll go for the buying option. And by the way, not everyone in Malvern is a lovey, darrrling! Mwah, mwah. Lol.
The perfect answer has to be ebay ... ignore the business sellers, query it for "private sellers only" and you'll pay no more than £25 - and of course you can always re-sell them afterwards, unless you want to keep them for your next cruise.
We're going on our first cruise in May, and a friend of ours who understands these things suggested that a new, budget suit looks as if you're trying too hard; better to go for a hardly used, higher quality suit and really look the part. My husband's is Yves St Laurent, pure wool and cost £18 - cheapskates or what??!!
With ebay, you can also involve the gents more in choosing them, without them being fussed over in a shop, which they so often seem to hate; I love it myself, but there you go ...
Anyway, have an amazing time, as I hope we will too!!
Try the charity shops if you want a real bargain, although the m&s price quoted below sounds good.
Hi, Hiring of dress wear is expensive wherever you do it. A better solution might be to buy your own so you then have it for future use. ASDA/George have a super suit in their superstores. If I remember right the jacket is £30 and the trousers are £10. Johnjay.
Go to your local asda, they sell tuxedo's very cheaply, you would probably pay as much to hire. plus its always there for your next cruise.
Try Matalan down by Morrisons supermaket.
Flying from Australia I do not want to bring formal wear with me. Can i hire a suit on board Q.M.2?
