Default Dressing up - too much?

Hi, I am a first time cruiser who will be on the legend 5/19/07 on the eastern caribb iten. I've purchased a black tux and a dinner jacket so that I will have a formal outfit for each formal night. Is this too much? Will I be out of place?

Not at all. It will give you a different look for each evening and you will fit right in on each formal night.

Take care,

Welcome Aboard Saturn!

I returned from the same trip just yesterday!!!! Had a blast and so will you. On both formal nights the men in my crowd wore either dark suits or pants & dark jacket, light colored shirt & of course ties.

For the most part everyone was smartly dressed on those nights; didn't notice any out-right "rebels". Some just wore shirt & tie without jackets, but they fit in just as well. Very, Very few tux's & gowns; mostly the ladies wore mid-length dresses or pant-suits appropriate for an early evening cocktail party but no one came in jeans, shorts, tee's, etc. Don't obsess over formality - just keep it "smart" and neat and most of all......HAVE A WONDERFUL CRUISE!!!!

On our recent cruise, I wore a tux one night, a white dinner jacket on another and a Calvin Klein suit on yet another. So, what you have chosen is great!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
