No problemo dear - hope this helps. If u don't want to dress up simply go to the buffet each 'dressy' nite or and this can be very nice too, with or without a balcony cabin, how about room service? Lots of cruiselines are offering dining room food in cabins...tried it myself - great!!!! That said - dressing up can be very simple if u do want to experience formal nights - a long or short skirt or slacks and blouse or sweater set (adding nice jewellery is optional) and u will fit in well - gents - preferably dark suits,shirts & ties (sorry) for formal nites, otherwise casual nites are easy - just don't wear jeans, T-shirts or shorts in the d.r. You will see everything from very formal to a bit too casual but with the above u will fit in nicely. Please enjoy your cruise and post your experiences when u return - will be looking forward to it. Happy cruisin'
