Why not look at Norwegian Cruise lines its Freestyle all the way and you can book the main diningroom for the dress up nights. If you did want to use the main diningroom every night you have to book each day which is the only hassle but you can go from Southampton if you see a cruise you all fancy. Others will respond to your request with different options.

Sorry no one else has so far contributed but you could also look at Thomson's I think it is the Celebration that gets the best reviews but have a look on this site for the reviews and it is also an appropriate name and likely to be cheaper. You could call the number above its FREE and speak to a specialist cruise consultant.

We have been with NCl previously and last year we took NCL Freestyle. Sorry but for us and our friends it was dreadful.The entertainment was rubbish. food nasty unless you paid extra $15-20 each per night to eat in the special restarants .Nothing going on in the day, sports equipment was nearly all broken. We have been on about 36 cruises that was the worse. We are also having our 40th Anniversary this year and we have booked a P & O cruise. They go out of Southampton,your brother will enjoy it. Not too many formal nights. Entertainment is good. We also went on Celebrity & RCL from England with no flights. We had great fun especially in the piano bar at night. RCL have great carnival nights, plenty of activities in the day too. Spoil him go on a proper cruise holiday, you wont be able to stop him once he starts. Good Luck.

P&O and Cunard make changes to...

By Richard Smith

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...

Enforcing a dress code policy

By Steve Fuller

Black tie nights. Formal attire, smart casual, resort casual, semi-formal. They all have different names and all mean a different type of expected outfits.I get frustrated at the lack of respect shown by some people who think the rule doesn’t apply to them. That the’re exempt and can wear what they like. Absolutely you can wear what you like and we all should have a choice on what to wear at dinner but please pay attention to the dress code policy and respect it.This is for everyo...

Happy St Patricks Day!!So its that time of year again when everyone drinks Guinness, Jamesons and Bushmills and talks about how green Ireland is.But so very many people, in my experience begrudgingly LOVE St Patricks Day. Welsh by origin, St Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and is renowned for ridding Ireland of snakes back in the day.The hill upon which this humble shepherd overlooked his flock is but 15 miles from me, Slemish just outside Broughshane in Co. Antrim and sees a pilgrimag...
