Most people on dine around did dress up for formal nights, ladies posh frocks and men djs or smart suits. If you don't feel like making the effort then anything goes in Horizon Court self service where the food is still very good and varied, plenty of choice.

Hi We cruised for second time on Sea Princess in September 2007. People did adhere to the formal dress code in both Anytime and Fixed Seating Dining on the Formal nights. For those that wished to remain casual there was Horizon Court or Room Service. Lots of men wore DJ's and lots of women wore long evening dresses or cocktail dresses- it really was the occasion to dress up.

We went to North Cape and fiords cruise on Sea Princess. Even on formal nights, you do not wear a dj or any formal dress on anytime dining, just smart casual. Dj is worn in the fixed time restaurants only on two or three nights if it is two weeks cruise. Also read their cruise answer book, which give a lot of answers. from Mrs Varm.

We have just been to the Carribean on the Sea Princess for 2 weeks, week 1 appeared to have a fair amount who did not dress for the formal evenings, assume these went to Horizons, second week however it was almost 100% formally dressed people on these nights. Remember also its only the Brits usually in DJ's other nationalities dress in their country style we have sen many Americans in uniform and "posh" suits, also those from the far east from experience dress in their countrys stlye and usually very smart.

Anytime dining and fixed dining both adhered to formal dress code on the nights when we sailed on the sea princess. Why not dress up it is all part of the cruise experience!!!! I wear a DJ and my wife long evening dress we love it.

Cruised to the Caribbean in November the option to dress up or not was always there , spoke to some people who didnt dress up on the first week, felt they had missed out and did dress up for the second week and enjoyed the experience, however if you really dont want to be formal you can still enjoy a more relaxed and casual evening without any pressure at all to join in the formal stuff. we dressed up each time and had a great time and would reccommend it at least a couple of times to experience it for yourselves. cant wait til the next cruise.

The anytime dining option makes no difference as to dress code. Most people dress formally but not everyone. You will probably find yourself sitting on a table with other guests on most occasions and if they art dressed formally but you are not, you may feel somewhat conspicuous but no-one is snobbish about it; it is a matter of common sense.

We have just returned from a Panama Canal cruise on board Island Princess. The two formal nights were really lovely. The first one the captain and crew were introduced to everyone en masse in the atrium with canopes and champagne being served, we were anytime dining and chose to wear dinner jacket and dj and cocktail dress for me. But to be honest we did see a good proportion of men in smart suit and tie, but definitely no open necked shirts or casual trousers. To be honest it was nice to dress up. The anytime dining was a very good choice for us, the food was exactly the same as in the set time dining room, but you could sit anywhere, go in at any time between 6.30 and 10.30 and to be honest we made friends with a couple who were booked in the 'posh' one but got landed with people they did not really get on with and they asked if they could join us in the anytime dining room and they enjoyed it so much better. Princess line is not at all stuffy yet it is 5* luxury all the way, we felt like a million dollars!!

Breathtaking Fjords

By Lesley Millward

Lesley Millward's blog

My wonderful cruise on the Celebrity Silhouette took us to the Fjords in Norway. Saying the Fjords, we actually only went to one fjord Geiranger, and the rest of the time we visited Alesund, Bergen and Stavanger. I have been to the Fjords before and yes, I know that there are an awful lot more fantastic places to see then these ports of call but we do have to bear in mind that the Silhouette is quite a big lady and physically can not get to the smaller destinations such as Flam (for example)...
