shofer,

I have to admit that I did see a greater proportion of men in tuxes (including our own group) than I would see on a 7 night cruise. Maybe because there were 3 formal nights and they felt they could get a little more wear out of the tux.

The primary factor here seems to be that most beginning cruisers tend to take cruises of seven nights or less. By the time that most folks graduate to cruises of ten nights or more, they have learned the standards of dress that prevail on their preferred cruise line and they have decided that they will take enough cruises to justify the investment in appropriate attire for formal evenings.

Norm.
