Default formal dining nights

We will be sailing to Alaska on Visions of the Sea for a seven day cruise in August. Our group was wondering if anyone knows which nights are the formal dining nights. Would anyone have this info? Thanks.

Traditionally on a seven day cruise the formal nights are the second night out and the next to last night. It can vary , but , usually does not.

Thanks for the info. We were told we might want to be on our balacony when we are cruising the glaciers instead at dinner.

You cruise your glacier in the evening???? Not on any cruiseline that I know of??? Frankly, in August - it's too cold to be having a full dinner out on your balcony. At the very least your food will get stone cold very quickly. If you are referring to cruising Misty Fjords??? (not a glacier), definately skip dinner if you are on the early dining.

I went end of August. In Glacier Bay, no rain but let me tell you,,it was could on deck, especially in the morning when we got there. The coldest of the entire trip (14 day cruisetour), wore all my warm clothes. Didn't even try to stand on the balcony.

Sailing mid August, will have a cold glacier sailing day, but possible nice weather in ports. Again you need a WIDE range of attire for any Alaska trip.

We sailed on the Vision in May. There were two formal nights - the second night and the sixth night. Dress ranged from formal to elegantly casual to jeans with a nice top. Alaska cruises are more dressed down. Yes, we had the early seating and many nights one or all of us were late due to whale, or sea lions in the area. We were fanatical when it came to picture taking. Just dress as you please - no matter what you will not feel over-dressed or under-dressed.

Does anyone know what the weather will be liked Sept. 2-9, will we be able to use our balcony or was that a waste of money?
