If you intend to go to the Capatins evening then Gentlemen ned to wear a suit with shirt and tie, however attendance is not compulsery and if you wish not to get dressed up you could not attend and eat in the Lido Cafe which is informal.

We have just returned from a 14 day cruise in the Caribbean on the Destiny. A substantial number of men wore full dinner suit etc. The remainder wore suit/jacket and trousers and shirt and tie. This is a formal occasion (very few these days!) and if you are not happy with this "formality" you are welcome to eat in the Lido Cafe on the deck.
