On a two week cruise there are two formal nights- the Captain's Cocktail where most people dress formally and look lovely! These are usually on the first day at sea so take a nice cocktail dress or even a gown! The cruise indicates what the dress code is in the daily newspaper 'Cruise News' which is delivered to your cabin so you will know what the expected dress is. Go on..dress up and look lovely! Enjoy.

I think you'll find there will only be one formal night in the weeks cruise....so just the one cocktail dress will be necessary if you want to dress up..if not you can dine in the buffet restaurant. I just take black silky trousers and various tops for the other evening meals. My partner wears black suit and bow tie for the formal and polo shirts or short sleeve shirt with trousers for the other evenings. Hope this helps..if there is anything else you want to know feel free to ask! We've done it twice and have just got back from the repositioning of Celebration which was fantastic.

Meridian Restaurant requires a bit effort, nothing too fussy though. My husband wore shirt, trousers and sometimes a jacket as a few evenings were on cool side. I wore trousers and tops and a dress just once. The Captains Night - Husband suit and white shirt. Myself, silky skirt and my most glam top.

Off to Rockley

By Gemma Coles

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...

As you may know I’ve just returned from a week on board Navigator of the Seas, we sailed from Southampton to Spain, Portugal and France and the cruise was during the school holidays.We had a really fantastic time, and my little girl really loved the ship….which little girl wouldn’t? All in all we had a great cruise and I would without question sail with Royal Caribbean again perhaps next time we’d like to try one of the newer bigger ships. This cruise was our first as...
