I will be travelling transatlantic on the QM2 for the first time, Southampton to New York.
Is it alright to wear an above-the-knee structured cocktail dress on formal night?
This isn’t one of the dresses I was going to bring, but imagine something similar.

I have heard elsewhere on the internet that one absolutely must wear a long dress on formal night, and that you will be ostracised if you don’t. I find that odd as I have been to very dressy events – in New York and London – and women wore short dresses.
In my cruise documents, the photos all show women in dresses down to the floor – but they all seem to be 60-70+, so I wonder if the rule is for that age group only, for women who are at the age where they feel they really shouldn’t be showing their knees
I am in my early 40s and in good shape, and feel comfortable showing off my legs.
