Rent formal clothes
I have no dress clothes, nor do I want to buy them for the cruise. I read some posts that you can rent clothes onboard the ship?

I'm going on the paradise, can I rent it on that ship?

Yes you can, go to the formalites shop on the ship, I'am not sure the cost one time my husband forgot his dress shoes and rented some for $10.00.

YOu can rent them but it would be cheaper to buy is pretty costly to rent...

Yes, you can rent formal cloths (tux) on board the ship, however it must be done prior to sailing because the tux must be sized. Go to, under "My Cruise" click on "Shop Gifts & Services" once that page opens up, on the left hand side of the page, under "Ship Delivery" click on "Formal Wear Rentals". This will take you to the page for renting a tux, $87 for the week. You must download the form on the page and go get sized somewhere. Then you must call the 1-800 number shown on that page to place your order for the tux. You must order it at least 1 week prior to cruising.

I rented a tux last time I cruised on the Liberty, and probably will this time. You get the tux, 1 shirt, shoes, cuff links, bow tie, and cummerbund for the week. Not a bad deal, considering you don't have to put up with messing with a suit that gets wringles when traveling.

Don't forget to take some black shoes. I've rented twice just to keep from needing to pack a suit, but once I felt like a goof because I only took brown dress shoes.
