You'll be fine in your tux on a Princess cruise. While some people don't do every formal night (us!), there are many men in tuxes and women in formal dresses. You'll be able to get great pictures!

On Carnival I wore a long skirt and "sparkly" top and DH wore slacks, a long sleeved shirt and a tie on the one formal night to which we went. We fit in fine there !
