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.

Were Turning Japanese!

By Collette Apak

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of people booking cruises that visit Japan. Maybe it’s the fact that many people have done the Mediterranean & Caribbean itineraries and are now wanting to look at somewhere different or whether a certain Joanna Lumley has prompted people’s interest after her TV series? Who knows? But in answer to this demand we are celebrating all things Japanese this week. I would certainly like to take a trip there and see...

What Is Your Number One Priori...

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So since finding out recently that I am going to become a dad for the first time (which I am probably foolishly ecstatic about), my priorities in life have taken something of a change of late!When I found out a couple of months ago, I started to look at my life. Where I was, what I have achieved, and what kind of future I wanted for my wife and imminent child.This little bit of soul searching has initially made me fixate at cash flow, which I’m sure is not unusual! So I have thrown myse...

Tell me what is on your Bucket List

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...
