Default Tuxedo Rental Costs?

Just curious so we can budget for it, what does the mens suits or tux's rent for on the ship? If its cheap enough, we may rent one onboard rather than bring a suit from home.

Duration of cruise. I've rented from them. The quality is decent. They have some tuxes on board in case your jacket/slacks don't fit. Limited onboard quantity....so check the fit ASAP.

An alternative to renting might be to buy a tuxedo shirt and accessories kit (tie, cufflinks, cumber/vest...) to go with your suit. I picked these items up at a men's warehouse for a little over $100.00.

<------ Instant tux.

The down side to this would be having to pack your suit.

If you are going on a holiday cruise don't count on being able to rent. We were told that for our new years cruise. Carla

With all the cruises that you have been on you could have bought a $1000 tux!

If I did it each time.... YOU'RE RIGHT!

Only done it twice. And they would no longer fit! :evil:
