Default Is there a Formal night on a three day cruise?

We have our first three day cruise coming up this month. We were wondering if they have a formal night like on the longer cruises?

I did a 3-day on Sensation in May/2009 and there was one on night two.

We were not sure whether to pack one formal outfit. Thanks for answering my question.

Few issues create as much confusion or contention among cruisers as what to wear to dinner -- and, more importantly, what others wear to dinner. As cruises and cruisers have become more diverse, so has dress -- both what cruise lines ask us to wear, and what we actually wear. And the more diverse our dress is, the more we argue about it! Just take a look at the dress code-related discussions on our message boards, but be forewarned: anything involving dress codes is likely to have its fair share of vitriol!

Just about every cruise line has a dress code of some type. Except for the occasional nudist charter, they all at least agree that clothing is required! But from there on, dress codes range from those where dressing for dinner means putting on a clean T-shirt to those where any male passenger not in a tuxedo might as well be wearing nothing at all.

Carnival does not have a "formal" night anymore... it is called "Cruise Elegant" and is a bit more casual than the former "formal" night.
Below is directly from Carnival's website:
http://www.carnival.com/CMS/FAQs/Dress_Attire.aspx


Cruise Elegant Dining Dress Code: Gentlemen - Dress slacks, dress shirts. We also suggest a sport coat. If you wish to wear suits and ties or tuxedos, by all means we invite you to do so. Ladies - Cocktail dresses, pantsuits, elegant skirts and blouses; if you‘d like to show off your evening gowns, that's great too!

Not permitted in the dining room during the Cruise Elegant dinner for ladies and gentlemen: shorts, gym shorts, T-shirts, beach flip-flops, bathing suit attire, jeans, cut-off jeans, sleeveless shirts for men, sportswear, and baseball hats.

Notice that a tie is not required....
