There are those who will say differently but buth are acceptable. If you are returning from or flying to the US you will probably have extra luggage allowance, although this is worth checking with the airlines web site, so why not take both ? ...Neil Down .

Definitely agree. Not everyone wants a dinner jacket so as long as you wear a presentable suit and tie you will be ok.

Dinner suit might be OK but I think you might feel a bit underdressed. I have cruised on the "Queens" but my friends have last January and considered the formal evenings very upmarket on the formal evenings. Hughes, Scotlan.

My daughter and son in law had their honeymoon on QE2 and he isnt so keen on the dressing up part but he wore a normal suit and was quite acceptable too. My husband had a black dinner suit when we cruised on QE2 twice and that was perfectly acceptable. No way are you forced to wear white!

Dinner Suit acceptable. personally I think a White Tuxedo makes guests look like one of the waiters who often wear white jackets on formal evenings. Don't forget your caribbeans shirt or buy one on one of the islands.

As there is usually more than one formal night per cruise why not 'push the boat out' and take a dinner suit and a white tux. You've just spent spent hundreds of pounds to cruise so why not another few to look and feel the part. That's what its all about and you will only feel under-dressed if you sit on a table where the other gentlemen are dressed correctly. Richard @ Lee on the Solent.

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
