Hi all. I'm going on my first cruise in Dec. '07.
I'm trying to read as much as I can so I'm prepared.
That being said....I have read a lot about formal nights. Everyone seems to think you shouldn't miss them. However, other than the clothes, could someone explain what makes the formal night stand out. Is it the same as any other night in the dining room except you are dressed up? Do you get free drinks or something? Is the food special?
Sorry if this has been explained but I haven't seen anything with actual details of what happens on formal night.
Thanks for any and all responses.
BTW I'm going to go even if the only difference is the formal ware, but I'm curious if there is anything else to it.
