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.

P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch.

The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
