It is not compulsory so yes you can opt out of the captains formal dinner, most cruise ships have several other dining areas where you could eat that evening. If you are being put off by the possibility of being out of place by not having a tux or a dinner suit then simple wear any normal suit or smart attire. This is not always possbile on all cruise ships but you can ask.

There is no obligation to go to any of the formal nights on any cruise line I know of with the exception of Silversea and there you can dine in you cabin/suite if you want to avoid it and most ships have an alternative dining venue.....regards...Nei.

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

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.
