Hi, everyone! We are first time cruisers and was wondering what to wear. We are going on the Ecstasy four night cruise to the Western Caribbean. I am not sure what to wear at night. I've heard mixed reports. I have a very formal evening gown and also another long dress with jacket and some beading. Is this too formal? I was told that there is only one formal night on a four night cruise. Also, should my hubby wear a suit one night and a sport jacket another? Thanks so much.
For formal nights you really see just about everything, wear what you're comfortable in, nice cocktail dress and a dark suit for the husband. He could use the sports coat for a semi-formal or smart casual night. I notice a lot of ladies do go for the beads and sparkle things and they really look nice. What you mentioned sounds just fine. Since this is your first cruise, you may find some neat tips here, enjoy.
Your dresses sound perfect for formal nights. There is a mixed crowd but most people get dressed up - like going to a wedding. A suit is just right for your husband too. You will see some tuxes but I've always noticed more suits. A sports jacket is good for semi-formal. Have a great time!!
