I am wondering if men wear tuxedos formal nights on Alaskan cruises. Or is it more casual than Caribbean cruises? My husband has a tux and figures he might as well get wear out of it, but he doesn't want to be the only man in a tux. Thanks for your help!
Men indeed do wear tuxs on formal nite. However some people continue to dress like they are going to McDonalds or Pizza Hut. YUCK!! Just returned from Alaska cruise on the Sky on the 14th, and were seated in the 7 Seas d/r with 3 other couples. Ms.kruzer and I along with 1 other couple were properly dressed for formal. The other 2 couples were dressed in polo shirts, slax and one man had jeans on and the staff did nothing to discourage this. I guess the formal minded will just have to bite the bullet and keep on dressing the proper way and hope that the lines will get some guts about themselves and start enforcing the rules. (I won't hold my breath..)
Fortunately on our cruise, most of the men wore either tuxes or suits. Part of the fun of formal nights is dressing up, eating at a classy restaurant, and getting pictures done. Some people are starting to dress down for the occasion but they are still in the minority. Get your best duds and enjoy the night.
