It depends which cruise you are going on but most on an informal night would be trousers/jacket/tie and shirt and for females smart trouser suit or two piece outfit.

Hello, I love the informal nights, they mean that I can wear something nice and comfortable but be able to dress for dinner without the "dressed up to the nines" formal nights feeling. I am certainly considering Azamara because I like this type of night best and as I understand it they are all like that on the Quest and the Journey, yours Heather.

There are three dress codes on Ventura, Formal, Informal and Smart Casual. The following is extracted from the P&O website Formal This is the opportunity for ladies to wear formal evening wear such as a ball gown, trouser suit or a cocktail dress. For men, a dinner jacket or tuxedo are the norm, otherwise a dark suit and tie or a kilt and jacket is fine. Semi-Formal Ladies can wear anything from tailored trousers to smart separates or an elegant dress, while men can wear a jacket and tie. However, smart shirts that do not require a tie are also acceptable when worn with a linen jacket or blazer. Smart Casual Stylish resort or leisurewear is ideal, for example casual separates, dresses or smart jeans for ladies and open-neck shirts, polo shirts and trousers or smart jeans (not shorts) for men. Men are not required to wear jackets on Smart Casual nights. We would request that sportswear, (e.g. trainers, tracksuits) are not worn in the evenings. Bring your brightest clothes for our Tropical evening. Don’t worry if you do forget something as our shops on board carry a wide range of leisure wear and formal clothing. As a guide there are normally four Formal evenings, four Semi-formal evenings and six Smart Casual evenings on a two week cruise.

On informal nights most of the ladies had cocktail dresses or evening trousers and pretty tops on (the sort of thing you'd wear to a xmas party) and the men tended to wear blazers or jackets with smart trousers or chinos. to be honest there wasn't a lot of difference between informal and formal nights, the dresses were a little shorter and the men didn't wear bow ties.enjoy your cruise on ventura, we did.
