What exactly does formal night mean on the INfinity Alaska Cruise?
Why take a long dress if it is not necessary ?
There are two formal nights. You may wear a long gown, if you like, but a knee-length (semi-formal) evening dress is fine. All cruises are the same. Then again...if you opt not to dine in the formal dining room, you may always eat at one of the other restaurants. Have you ever been on a cruise before?
As for attire yes Celebrity has the look and feel of a 4 to 5 star cruise line however, for formal nights I have done tuxs, shirt and tie and been fine. Tehy are not going to kick you off the ship or anything, they do aim to have everyone in some nice attire and thats what Formal nights are all about - prom and grads all over again :-)
Enjoy yoru time in Alaska in the last two cruise season been there 4 times
Our first and only Alaska cruise was on Celebrity Infinity, just wonderful... Celebrity is a bit more formal, so yes, to anything you have thats super dressy, even long dress's you'll see. I did write a review of our cruise if you want to read through it for any info. or tips:
We went on Celebrity's Infinity to Alaska last September and absolutely loved this ship.
What made this cruise so special is that on the ship was a naturalist that gave a four part series about the history of Alaska. Then too, our table, which consisted of three other couples, was the best we ever experienced on a cruise. We all rotated every night to sit near a different couple at the table. One of the couples, after hearing about Hurricane Isabel, which had hit the Tidewater area of Virginia, where we live, offered to let us stay at there home in Vancouver in case we could not get back to our home in Virginia Beach.
One good thing about cruising to Alaska in September was that there were sales in all of the stores in every port because it was nearing the end of the cruising season. Not only that, the ship was quiet because all of the children were already back in school. We would definitely travel on Celebrity's Infinity again!
