There are no formal nights on Azamara, on NCL it is Freestlye so you don't have to dress up if you don't want to. I think that the 3* brands like Ocean Village don't have formal nights eithe.

Ocean Village is completely informal. No dressing up required at all. You can dress up a little to go to James Martin's onboard restaurant but over dress and you'd feel out of plac.

Oceania Cruises is casual. Also Regent Seven Seas Cruises have no formal nights on their 7 night cruises in the Med or Alaska. No cruise line can enforce what you wear just as long as you don't turn up in jeans or shorts at a formal do. If you don't want to dress up, go to the buffet on the formal night, not the restaurants.

Thomson cruises only have one formal night per 7 days when most people dress up, but some choose not to and eat in the informal dining areas, they only insist that you do not wear shorts, costumes etc in restaurants on evening and ask you to be covered up at buffet stations for obvious reasons.

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
