On a seven day cruise there are two nights when men have to wear a suit and a tie. Two nights when they have to wear a jacket or blazar and a tie, and three nights when just an open necked smart shirt is required. You are not allowed to wear shorts on for any of the evening meals. Ladies similarly wear cocktail dresses on the two formal evenings and smart evening wear on the other occasions. Don't worry about it, it is really nice to look smartly dressed once in a while! Enjoy your cruise, Coli.

I was on Navigator of the Seas in May and had a fantastic time. Some nights were Formal, Suits for men - dresses for women. Some were smart casual, shirt and tie for men skirts and blouses etc for women. The rest were casual when people wore t-shirts, shorts, etc. In the Winjammer tho it is more relaxed every night so if dressing up isnt your 'thing' then you can go as you please and everyone is relaxed and happy. Children are also well catered for all the time and i dont just mean at meal times. Their entertainment is fantastic. Hope you have a great time. I di.

You'll find most of the answers you require in the brochure or by looking at the RCCL web site and FAQ. The general rule however is that at many of the port stops where the ships is due to leave after 5pm the dress code will be casual. This means slacks and a sports shirt for men and women or a skirt for women. On other nights when "Informal " is the dress code many women put on something a little classier and men generally where a collared shirt and jacket and possibly a tie although this last items seems to be less frequently worn. On "Formal Nights" a large amount of women wear a cocktail dress, that little black number that you all seem to have or some thing the Americans call a Pant Suit (in other words smart jacket and trousers. Men mostly wear a white tuxedo or a dinner jacket with dress trousers or a suit with a "collar and tie". I would think that your 8 year old might well like to wear a shirt with a dickie bow and may even enjoy copying the "Baby Ballroom " set. They will be some who have no idea and seem to think that Jeans and a T-shirt is the thing to have dinner in. I do know that this is frowned on by Royal Caribbean but not always corrected. Hope this helps and I'm sure you love the ship and your fellow passengers....Neil Dow.

As you can see frrom the answers everybody interprets the guidelines differently. We've been on 9 Royal Caribbean cruises and have always had 2 formal nights per week (tux or suit or at least jacket/tie for men) The other nights, although advertised as smart/casual or casual, most men wore shirt and trousers - very few jackets and NO shorts in the dining roo.

The latest craze to sweep the airline industry is Emotional Support animals. Have you been on a plane yet with any weird and wonderful creatures.A woman tried (without success) to bring a peacock onto a United flight recently, reportedly claiming that it was an emotional support animal, which would allow the animal to fly for free. Quite Rightly United refused her request.This is becoming so common that airlines have had to introduce rules for which animals can and cannot be taken on-board. ...

 Can you believe it’s that time again? Some haven’t even thought about Summer 2018 let alone Summer 2019 and the cruise lines bring out the itineraries and prices for as late as Winter 2020. As I type 2020 it doesn’t seem five minutes ago we were celebrating the Millennium and scarely that now seems like a distant memory. Where others like and are able to travel on a whim there are families and clients that have different requirements that need and like to book early. E...
