Not experienced a Suite. Most certainly take Dinner Suite and long dresses, you will certainly have 2 formal nights onboard. Have been on the Celbration a couple of times. both times a good 70% dressed for dinner on those nights. My wife & I both love Thompson Celebration, a pity that it does not sail very often from a UK Port. Have a wonderfull time, Regards Maisie & Bil.

Hi you two honeymooner's - All the best on your forthcoming cruise. Although not done the Celebration we have cruised the red sea and the med on their identical sister ship the Spirit. Having had the use of a suite it does give a feel of open space having a sitting area in the cabin, although having said that we never spend that much time in the cabins, but there again weve not had a honeymoon YET (28 years later) With regards to dress its up to your own preference, you will not feel out of place with a smart suit and dress/skirt/trousers for the lady. We take a cruise on average every three months and sailed with many of the large cruise lines, we are due to sail with Royal Caribbean Marineer of the Seas on 9th Sept 07. We enjoyed sailing with the thomson cruises and can highly recommend the standard, cruising is what you make it, Im sure you will be in for a good time. The DAWSON'S .

Thomsons usually have one or two formal evenings per week so take the tuxedo and wear your loveliest evening dress and enjoy.

Just returned from Celebration around the Med. Yes take Black Tie and dress. On one week you can expect one formal night. You can of course opt out, but we enjoyed dressing up and meeting the captain. Did not have a suite but in general ship nice. Staff excellent.

We travelled on Thompsons Celebration in April this year and the food was excellent. Yes, certainly take a dinner suit and long dress - many people do, although it is not compulsory - it adds to the cruise. Unfortunately we have not tried a suite.

Was on the Celebration this August.As well as the Captains night you could also dress up for a honeymoon meal in Mistrals.(£15 surcharge). Didn't use it but the menu's looked quite good. However if you want to don't want to take extra clothes there is alternative casual dining every night. We had a suite, some are bigger & more plusher than others. We had ample room for 3 of us, double bed & a single, 2 windows, 2 wardrobes, drawers, chairs, TV, mini bar, hairdryer, bath, shower. We were on deck 7, more room than cabins on lower deck but smaller than the plusher suites.

I can't tell you about what the suite will be first hand but I did make friends with someone on my last cruise on the Celebration who was in a suite and thought it was wonderful! You don't HAVE to wear a dinner suit/long dress for the captains dinner (1 per week) but most people do and it does make the evening a bit special if you are dressed up.

Congratulations! We have 'done' this cruise, great choice. You can dress up or down, exactly as you please. If it will make the holiday more special 'dine out' every night in the dining room and dress smart, no need for 'dinner dressing' but you won't be out of place if you do. The 'Captains night, is when lots of people really dress up and its when you get your photo taken in your finery, so its nice to do it especially if its your first cruise. Last time we went we didn't bother to use the dining room as 6.30 sitting meant we cut the day a bit short and 8.00 sitting was a bit late so we 'smart casualled' and ate in the self serve when we were ready. It also depends on what you like to eat of course! I would ask for sitting I want now. Sittings are already allocated when you gat on board and it can take a couple of days to change, use the dining room on the first evening. The menu is posted early in the day outside so you can check if you fancy whats on offer, Check out the self serve see what you think and chose your options daily depending what you do in the daytime. In short smart jacket and slacks will be fine for him and smart casual to very glam for you. Hope this helps. Have a great time and a long happy marriage!!! Sue, Birmingham.
