Default Century - Informal Nights

Can you get away with wearing a sport shirt and pants on infromal nights? The literature with my docs says that a sport jacket and tie is reccomended on informal nights. I have never been on a cruise that requires a jacket an tie on nights other than the formal nights.

Hi Steve,
Sounds like you're talking about the simi-formal nights, where yes a jacket and tie are suggested. For the casual nights the sport shirt and docker type pants will do fine. Have fun on Century!

you are supposed to wear just the jacket over a hawaiian shirt and khakis. those nights we went to alt. dining. we were too tired from shore excursions to bother dressing up. hubby said "no" to the jacket too! the alt. dining is excellent. make your reservations early and enjoy!

The guys at our table on did not wear jackets and ties on the semiformal nights. For the first one, I wore a tie but no jacket. One guy had on a jacket without a tie. The other two guys had neither. On the second semiformal night, none of us wore ties or jackets. On the formal nights, two of us were in tuxes and two wore dark suits.

So, it depends on what you are comfortable wearing. If you'll feel out of place without a jacket and tie if the other men are wearing them, then you should go along. But you won't be sent away from the dining room for not having on a jacket and tie.

Ok, so now you're going to cruise with Celebrity...its a premium cruise right..so follow the guidelines in teh literature and you'll fit in a feel comfortable.

2 Formal nights (tux or suit)
2 Informal nights (jacket and tie - some skip the tie)
3 Casual nights (sport shirt and slacks - no jeans or shorts or t's)

Or, go to the alternative dining those nights you want to dress down a bit when the dining room calls for more.

It's elegant and relaxed most or the time but make this a special cruise and dress the part, you'll love it.

Cheers, Jeff

Just off the Century this past week (W. Caribbean). Wonderful cruise. We had just 1 informal night. I usually wear a blue blazer, khakis, white button down, and a preppy tie. Looks very nice with a tan.

Jeff, glad you enjoyed Century as I did in Sep. I totally agree with those that believe in following suggestions for dress in the dining room. Why book a cruise knowing what is expected by fellow cruisers if you set your own standards ignoring the suggestions?
