Default Formal night with youngsters -- what do they wear?

We -- Grandma and I -- will be cruising with our grand children soon. They range in age from 8 to 12. What should they expect to wear on the formal nights? Hopefully, we will not be getting tuxes for the boys and long dresses for the girls.

My 11 y/o enjoys getting dressed up for formals suite and tie. Children can wear a nice pair of dress slacks and a long sleve shirt. On the other nights he wore dockers and nice shoes.

My son wore a suit and my daughters wore dresses (we went in April so they wore their Easter dresses & suit).

For girls.. any holiday dress with a little sparkle would work just fine.
For boys.. a suit and tie would be nice but not needed. I would at least suggest dress pants, shirt and tie though.

If you don't want to spend alot on fancy duds for kids( and who does?) just go to a thrift shop they are filled with jackets and suits for kids that only got worn once or twice ( for weddings, funerals bar mitzahs(sp?) etc.) before the original owner grew out of them. You can pick up a jacket and tie cheap and pair it with a decent pair of dress pants and viola, good enough duds for formal night. Most girls have a dress that will do, otherwise check out the second hand stores for them.!!

my son wore suit separates- dress pants, dress shirt, tie and a suit coat.
The other couple who we were traveling with have a teenage daughter and she wore a dressy black dress with heels and earings- doesn't have to be a long dress- but we did see many girls in long dressess.

I have ordered Cheongsam dresses for both my daughters 10 & 13 for our June cruise, depending on what site you can get them for 12.99 -21.99 plus $5 s&h. We are buying the hair chop sticks at Claires and having up-do's done.
