Hi, Take one evening gown, and a couple of cocktail dresses at least. Unless you are not going to eat in restuarants at all whilst on board. Each day the itinery delivered to your cabin should tell you what dress is required for each evening. As soon as you board, go to the desks that show the excursions and book them up. If you leave it to a daily basis you may find excusions are fully booke.

Each week there are two formal nights, when the men need a suit and a tie [dress suit , tuxedo, or lounge suit] and the women a nice trouser suit or full length dress. On two other occasions men need ablazer or jacket and tie. On the other three night it is 'smart casual' when no tie or jacket is required. The food in the main two restaurants is magnificent! We never go to the one that you have to pay extra for. As for the tours, walk down the gangplank and hire a local taxi. The ships tours, sadly, are a rip off. Believe me!!! Coli.

Hi, I would certainly consider reading other reviews re the excursions. We went to The Red Sea last year with 2 of our kids, 19 and 23. Excursions are expensive so we booked all of our trips on Petra ,The Pyramids /Cairo and The Valley of The Kings.Dockside collections by local companies and private guides.Recommend Memphis Tours and Jordan Inspiration Tours as reliable,efficient , trustworthy and there waiting for you to disembark.have heard that local taxis are a good way to travel and most locals would prefer cruisers to use locals rather than big spread the wealth.

I wore a cocktail dress (I don't own an evening gown!)for both my formal evenings and just some nice trousers and 'dressy' tops for the rest of the evenings. We found that if you really don't want to wear a tux you could just wear a suit and tie but make sure you wear a long sleeve shirt (men obviously!

Hawaii FIVE O!!!!!

By Drew Lazarus

Drew Lazarus's blog

Hey! Back again with some more world cruise ports and pics! I think the shot above (the whale breaching the ocean) says it all. So whilst on tender duty in Lahaina , assisting passengers get ashore, I was fortunate enough to witness this through a tender boat window. I still look at the picture and think WOW!!! This was of course the high light of the day for me. There were a number of many different varieties of whales that were not shy and for want of a better word were parading around the...
