How do I know if my particular cruise has formal, informal and casual? I thought it only had formal and casual. We are on Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas Western Caribbean leaving this Sunday?????
Radiance is one of our favorite ships! To me formal is tux or dark suit, and most men wear dark suits. Anything else is casual/informal/comfortable, whatever you want to call it. On most cruises, there are some staunch casual adherents who won't wear a suit to their own funeral, and as long as they are wearing long pants, they're allowed into the dining room.
Just make sure you have a couple formal outfits and the rest business casual. I used to pack a sports coat for the 'informal' nights but soon found I was one of the very few that did so. To save luggage space I dropped the coat but still bring a tie just in case I'm feeling frisky. <G>
