Look in your brochure or type in "dress code" in the search for questions section and you will get the answer. Most cruise ships are the same with the exception of NCL and Azamara....I'm being lazy too....Neil's son Fala.

I have been on 3 Costa cruises. I have worn a Tux on one and Sport Coat the others. Costa isn't as formal as many say. They don't seem to enforce their dress code like other lines do. Just my 2 cents. Below is directly from Costa's website on dress code: "Caribbean: Daytime dress on a Costa cruise is casual such as light, cotton clothing or swimwear with cover up when indoors. Most every night is informal, feel free to dress comfortably in resort attire, jackets are not required. There will be two formal evenings where you may choose to either dress formally, elegantly in a suit for men and cocktail dress for the ladies, or more casually in elegant resort wear, as how you want to enjoy your night is up to you. One of our informal nights is a Roman Bacchanal to which you may wish to wear a custom toga or accessorize your bedsheet/toga provided onboard. For guests who are interested in dressing up more formally, you may also rent a tuxedo or dinner jacket by calling Cruise Line Formal Wear Inc prior to the cruise at 1 877 88 COSTA. Your formal wear will be delivered to your stateroom before you sail and picked up at the end of your cruise." From what the above says yiou choose how formal you want to be. If you do want to go to the Main Restaurant during formal nights, we have seen people being turned away as they were wearing jeans and a polo shirt.

And the godmother is..

New ships are to be sponsored by a civilian which is typically a woman. With this honorific title, the cruise ship godmother is selected to bring good luck and protection to the vessel as well as being part of the naming ceremony. The ship is then christened with a bottle of champagne (done by pressing a button these days) as good luck.But this we...

Wonderful Mexico

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
