  • Smith, BLAYDON-ON-TYNE - Commented on this review

    Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review.My husband and I are going on a similar cruise on the Silhouette in May. We usually cruise with Cunard and enjoy the formal evenings, however we are really looking forward to a less formal cruise. Would you please tell me what the required dress code is, if there are any really formal nights, and whether it is necessary to take evening dresses and suits for dinner in the main restaurant on these occasions. As we are flying into Venice there are luggage limitations.

      Hi.......for formal nights a dark suit or tuxedo is the preferred dress code. There were probably more suits than dinner jackets in eveidence but that surely muist vary from cruise to cruise. There were also variations and even the odd 'no jacket' was in evidence but that was in the minority. Ladies wore both long and shorter style evening dresses. The rest of the week in the main dining room the dress code is smart casual as in the speciality restaurants. Do try the Murano. Enjoy!

        We sailed on the Solstice in October and was disappointed with the formal evenings.Having sailed a few time on the Eclipse we found that wearing formal wear we were in the minority on the Solstice.We enjoy making the effort and with other eateries available onboard catering for less formal attire on those nights those who prefer not to dress up could be accomodated outside of the MDR.

      Hi Smith, Celebrity is not as formal as Cunard or P&O but they do have formal nights. there are 3 formal nights on a 14 night cruise. a dark suit, dinner suit or national dress for men, and long/short dress or trousers and dressy top, for ladies are all suitable to wear on the formal nights. a shirt and tie is not required for the smart casual nights ie all the other nights. for men a short or long sleeved open necked shirt or polo shirt is fine. trousers/skirt and top or a dress are fine for ladies. hope you have a great cruise.

    We are visiting Florence in April with the Equinox. What made it your least favourite? It will be our first time there and we're looking forward to it? Any suggestions?

    • Blue, Moscari, Mallorca Commented on a comment by Preacher (31 Mar 12 17:30)

      Purely because it was so crowded with several ships having disengorged their passengers on the same day. The queues for all the galleries/museums were incredibly long and the waiting interminable. Also amazingly expensive.....e.g. 2 small beers 12 euros!! We live in Mallorca and even in Palma, sitting 'al fresco' on the terrace of a top notch bar/cafe/restaurant, it wouldn't even cost half of that. Florence is a wonderful city but I would prefer to visit out of season and enjoy it when it is less crowded. It was August and hot hot hot, but that was our choice to choose the cruise for our honeymoon. I think you will fare better in the cooler April temperatures. We were quite shocked at the cost of everything there, however I think Italy, generally speaking is very expensive. Have a great time.

Where were the P&O Fancy Dress police?

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

As many of you know, I am getting married at the end of May and after deciding to have my wedding on land rather than at sea, it seemed only right to have my hen party on a cruise. When the itineraries were released I decided on the Britannia sailing on the 06th April for 2 nights as it was a family-friendly ship so my younger bridesmaid could attend and also wouldn’t miss any school time.Back in November P&O had sent us all letters that they had changed their policies and that as o...
