Your suit and her cocktail dresses will be fine. Helpful hints?...Read the Capers, the daily paper, everyday, bring a highlighter to mark what you want to do. At dinner, try entrees you normally wouldn't try at home, see the shows, and ENJOY!!

Just read the posts on this site for first time cruisers and the practical advice site. Such good information. Everyone is helpful. A tux is not required unless you just want to wear one. My hubby wears a navy sport coat, white shirt, tie and kakhis. Sometimes he leaves the tie off. I wear a long floaty skirt and top, capris with cute little heels sometimes. The boys would be fine with kakhi pants and maybe a dress shirt, a tie or sport coat if they just want to.............Formal isn't quite as formal as it used to be. If you guys want to take a really nice family picture on formal night, just coordinate your wardrobe for as formal as you want. We did do one once with hubby in tux and me and the girls in black cocktail dresses. That's the one and only time he took a tux............we used it for our Christmas card that year!!!The girls wear sun dresses now.......but something that they might wear to church.

Tommy, please turn off your CAPS LOCK.

You'll see men in suits and tie, jackets and tie, and some tux's. Ladies in cocktail dresses, long formal sequined gowns, and church dresses.

On formal nights you will always find me in a Tux and my wife in a formal gown. There are many people that will actually wear formal dress on formal night. Call us crazy but we figured that is the thing to do. <G>
