Hi, we've cruised 8 times now including the Fjords. For the formal nights - for Him, a smart black suit, collar & tie; for you - any dress suitable for evening wear, it doesn't have to be long, you have a wide selection as ladies now wear such an assortment 0 just dress like you would going out for a special meal. You will have a Black/White night one formal evening and you simply dress in those colours. The rest of the time it is smart/casual. With P&O you'll be fine, we choose to cruise with them every time. Hope this helps.
The number of formal evenings depends on whether you are on a one or two week cruise. A 7 day cruise would usually have two formal evenings. For this the man would wear either a dinner jacket or lounge suit (the majority will be in a DJ), for an informal evening the man will wear a lounge suit or smart jacket and tie -with smart trousers of course! For smart casual it can be open necked shirt, can be short sleeved and trousers like chinos. For the women, formal can be long dress or short cocktail dress or something like floaty trousers with top. Informal - something you might wear to a wedding or smart evening occasion. Smart casual something you would wear to a restaurant. If you look at the back of the P&O brochure you will see guidelines.
The great thing is to enjoy yourself.
We are going on a 7 night fjord cruise next year on Oriana. Never been there before or on Oriana so looking forward to that.
