Hi, I went on the QM2 transatlantic in November. Jeans are fine during the day. You cannot go in the Brittannia restaurant in them for lunch, so we had lunch in the pub and kings court. The pub lunches are fantastic.

I feel sure that you could "get away" with wearing jeans during the day and deny yourself the option of dining in the restaurant for lunch. However my question to you and I assure you it is made without any snobbery or aggression - is why would you want to book a superb cruise on a line that is renowned for its elegance and formality and then want to wear jeans? Sometimes it is best to take into account the tradition of the venue you have chosen and also the feelings of your fellow guests. Yes everybody on baord the QM2 could wear jeans but it would destoy part of what you and other guests are actually paying for. I repeat please take this comment in the manner it was inteneded not as a snobby reprimand but just something to think about in order to maxamise your and others pleasure.

Hi, i went transatlantic for my honeymoon in november this year and jeans are fine during the day. After 6pm however in the main reataurants jeans are not permitted.We really enjoyed the dressing up at night. To sum up, during the day, jeans or any smart casual clothing is fine. Happy cruising on the best ocean liner in the world.

Plastic is Not Fantastic

By Lily Canderton

I was watching the Princess Documentary this week in Alaska and it was good to see the crew policing the use of plastic straws on the open decks when the ship was in Glacier Bay as they are one of the biggest causes of debris and pollution in our oceans and are difficult to recycleThe average American uses disposable plastic utensils at an average rate of 1.6 straws per person per day. Based on national averages, this equates to each person in the U.S. using about 38,000 straws between the ag...

In the luxury cruise world there are a few cruise lines you would I am sure, remember. The likes of Regent, Crystal, Viking, Hapag Lloyd, Seabourn, Oceania, and Silverseas.
