Formal Night Tux Options
I am trying to decide between 3 tuxedo options, if I go that route. I can do a black tux(the standard), an ivory dinner jacket and black pants, or a white tux(broken up with another color of course, in a classy way). This is for a Caribbean cruise so please share your opinions.

Since you are an extrovert, I would say, the ivory dinner jacket, to stand out from the crowd...leave the white one home......the classic black is a no fail choice, so...that's my 2 cents:)

Whatever gave my personality away? Though flamboyant is more like it.

Ok, I'll give you flamboyant:)

Wearing any type of tux will make you stand out. So few people wear them it seems anymore. My last cruise I didnt see a single guy in one. If you are so inclined go for it. You will look sharp and you will catch the ladies eyes for sure.

I am not one to look any less than elegant and sophisticated, often in an understated way.

Then don't rent a tux on board! I can spot a rental at 50 paces. Usually the fit is poor and the fabric is bargain basement.

That is what I was leaning towards, just buying instead of renting. I may look for one on eBay or something and have it altered to fit like a glove.

You will be just fine regardless of what you chose. I see all kinds on-board Carnival. They seem to be very tolerant.
Me, I wear a black suit and bow-tie and sometimes wish they weren't SO tolerant. LOL
