Mess dress is the military version of formal dress so i see no reason why you should not wear it.

Do write a letter to the Master in advance and ask for a bridge tour. Give the letter in at reception when you board. She's a wonderful ship! Enjoy.

You wear your Mess Dress---please!!!If only more men actually wanted to dress on formal nights(we usually read questions on here which begin" My Husband refuses to wear DJ") As Neil says, wear it with pride----and be prepared for all the admiring glances!!!Cynthia.

I cruised on Queen Victoria last year and shared a table with two American couples. One of the husbands was a very handsome US naval officer in his 40's. He appeared at dinner on the first formal night wearing full black Mess Dress with short jacket, braid, gold stars and miniature medals. We were absolutely knocked out! The ladies were swooning and the men were envious. The second formal night he appeared in a similar outfit in grey. To be honest you could have heard a pin drop in the restaurant as every admiring head turned his way. We called him 'James' as he certainly could have stepped into '007's' shoes any day, attractive, intelligent, charming and a talented sportsman to boot! His wife was very proud of him and equally as charming. On formal nights they were always late for dinner as ladies stopped to chat and flirt and all the men wanted to hear the stories behind the medals. If you look half as good in your Mess Dress as he did, you'll look stunning; so wear it with pride. Don't forget to give us ladies a treat and on your return post your photos on the site! Happy cruising - Jan .

I have just read all the other comments and my self i am not so sure, we were on the Queen Victoria last April and didn't see any one in Military mess dress, had we had seen someone we would be very tempted for my husband to take his this coming June on the QM2 as he is still serving in the RAF and has been for 32 years. We would play safe and take a dinner suit justin case, feeling a plonker would put my husband right off even though he is proud of his uniform and so am i.

Is this a ste...

 We have just returned from what was an absolute winter paradise.
