The number of formal nights depends on the length of the cruise but yes you will have 2 or probably 3 [if more than 10 days at sea] so pack evening wear. The dress code has a much wider set of options now and it need not all be long dresses some where attractive skirts or trouser suits. For gents tux; dinner suit or just a smart dark suit.

Apologies McGuire is correct no formal nights I picked up on the ref ALL CRUISES. Apart from the Beachcomer Cafe there is also a Harbour Cafe and some said great place to go to for informal coffees and pastries.
