We went for our honey moon and we dressed up a couple of nights and went to the bistro. My husband wore a suit (no tie) and I wore a cocktail dress. Did not see anyone in penguin suit but then it saves you all the hessle of taking one in your suitcase!!

While I've only seen two people in a Tux on one occasion - there is no reason for you not to start a welcome trend and this would be fine when dining in the Bistro. You would however look somewhat out of place in the other restaurants which are "smart casual".

Sorry not the same cruise line, but we did Island star in May. I was very dissapointed in not dressing up. I took some dressy dresses and wore 1 on 1 evening, but felt a little silly. I was dissapointed as I bought a designer dress for the occasion. So after I wore black trousers and sparkle top (I felt better)My husband wore trousers and shirt (no tie, but he had took one) There are poeple who dress up (not suited and booted though) That is why people chose informal crusing, cos they don't want to dress up!! One man in the dining room, had shorts, T.shirt, open sandles (with grey socks) and a matching bum bag. I must admit that reminded me of a camping holiday and I that convined me I looooove formal crusing and all it entails. have a nice hol.

Hi, its me again, forgot to say Island did have restaurant where you paid extra for your meal, I think those people dressed a little better. But it annoyed me that on other luxury cruises being waited on with white linen and silver was included. Bye the way have a good buffday, and enjoy your anniversay.

We were on the OV2 for our 25th anniversay, didnt do the bistro but did la luna which was fantastic, the staff had decorated our table and all came to chat to us. saw afew people in nice suits and dresses, one chap was in full scottish dress, kilt etc and everyone was great about it, our impression was that if you feel the need to dress in dickie bow etc then that was fine, the bistro encourage "smart" dress, which can by anything up from shirt tie and jacket for gents. dreee up and enjoy. if you like strawberries, try the med sizzler for desert, 100% superb. OV2 was our first cruise, the ship si good, clean and restaurants range from good to excellent.

Well ive never seen dickie bows but people do tend to dress up for the bistro - and if when you go just have a look inside and see what the people eating in the bistro are wearing just to be sure that what youre hoping to wear wont look out of place.
