The majority of ships you will have 3 formal nights if the cruise is longer than 9 days and the others are made up of informal/casual. On formal nights Tux; Dinner jacket or dark suit for males and for females Cocktail dress or really smart evening dress. On informal Jacket, shirt and tie for males and for females dress or trouser suit. Finally on casual nights Sports shirt and casual trousers and females touser suit; casual top and trousers. As far as smoking goes all ships are introducing new rules on areas where you can smoke. Some are moving to banning smoking in your cabin or on your balcony if you have one and the other areas are designated and indicated where you can or cannot. Even in the casino there will be restrictions which has never been the case in the past.

If you are looking for less formal then NCL has a much more relaxed dress code.

ON the PO ships men do not have to wear a tie (MOST DO NOT) on the Informal nights. Also just been notified along with our tickets that men are to wear long sleeved shirts, most have always worn short before. Men are also now allowed to wear smart jeans , which personally i disagree with.

Which cruise line/ship are you asking about? Every cruise line has differing dress code policies and it would be a long detailed answer to cover every one of them. As for smoking in the restaurants I can't think of any line that allow it nowadays but other contributors to this site may know better.

Sorry,old boy, but "smart jeans" is a contradiction in terms. Jeans by there very nature are working clothes and therefore like dungarees not suitable to wear to a restaurant. Reginald Carruthers.

Hi even on NCL no shorts are allowed in the certain dinning rooms. On NCL smoking is restricted to your cabin and possible one other confined area (thank god). Thompson Cruises or Easy Cruises may be more flexible.

It is a very small place with a population is around 3500. It is an area situated at the base the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera. I would say that the place is most famous for the Casino and also the Grand Prix. The main districts are all wit...

Riviera Drinks Packages & S...

By Jill Johnson

Jill Johnson's blog

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...
