Default formal dress

We are sailing on the Pride on June 22, 2002. We were wondering if both formal nights are truly formal nights (meaning formal dresses) or is it only the night of the Captain's Cocktail party?

Have been on 5 different CCL ships (and leaving for a 6th in 17 hrs, 36mins), and the first formal night seems to be a little more formal than the second. More women in sequins, ballgown type dresses and a few men (generally mid 20's to mid 30's) in tuxes. The second night is more cocktail dresses and dark suits. I pack according to that and take one rather formal dress and a cocktail dress.

Hi ...

After LOTS of cruises, I have never worn anything even remotely resembling a ball gown. Lots of women do. My husband (who's only in his 30's regarding his waistline) always wears a black dinner suit for the first night, if we're in a warm climate he will wear a white dinner jacket the second night.
