Americans tend to dress far smarter than us British I am afraid to say. We have never taken a tuxedo - DH wears a buisness suit and I always wear a floaty dress [long].

Don't worry, A nice stylish--and comfortable dress ---- and gent in a business suit will be perfectly OK. P.S. You should have gone for a longer trip! ENJOY!

Just returned from a cruise round the Bahamas and really enjoyed the formal night. As first time cruisers I had intended renting a Tux for my husband but took a pair of smart black trousers, shirt and tie just in case. No need to hire a Tux at all - very much down to the individual and there was a variety of formal dress and smart. Everyone had a fabulous night. I wore a cocktail length dress and was very comfortable. Fabulous trip. No need to take the excursions in Nassau as everywhere is within walking distance. You can either get a taxi or water taxi to Paradise Island for a few dollars each. You are within minutes of The Queen's staircase and Fort Fincastle. The surrey ride is 10 dollars each and is a short ride but does give you a bit of orientation. Wonderful holiday and I agree, should go for a longer cruise next time.

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...
