Since a cruise is really the only time we can dress up we do. But for hubby it is a nice dark suit, a couple of shirts and ties and for me a very nice long black skirt with a nice jacket and top, I will take two of these and one pair of dress shoes.
For the casual nights hubby has a couple pair of slacks and nice collared short sleeve shirts, me maybe a nice dress or good slacks and tops.
Hubby has never owned a tux and I am sure some people would not consider my things very formal but they definitely are formal enough for a cruise.
