Default Constellation 12/8 10 day cruise dress code schedule

My wife needs to know!! We know there are three formal nights, but does anyone know the precise schedule for formal, informal, and semi-formal nights? Is there a Caribbean night, and if so, which night? I read somewhere that there is a "white" night (something to do with Cirque de Soleil?) Does anyone know about this?

We're also booked in the Ocean Liners Restaurant on Sunday, 12/10. Is a jacket and tie required? Just a jacket? Or if the official dress code for that night is informal, does that mean we can go informal to Ocean Liners?

Thanks,

Erik

Unfortunately, you won't get the official schedule of "formal," "informal," and "casual" evenings until you get to your cabin on embarkation day, when Celebrity publishes it in the daily schedule. The most any of us can do is to tell you the normal practice, with full knowledge that your sailing may vary. Most cruises of ten nights duration on Celebrity have three (3) "formal" evenings, two (2) "informal" evenings (sport coat and tie for gentlemen), and five (5) "casual" evenings, but even that is not guaranteed. Celebrity switched the "semiformal" evenings to "informal" a few years ago, so there are no longer "semiformal" evenings on a Celebrity cruise. Anyway, you can be pretty certain of the following.

>> The first evening and the last evening are always "casual" due to travel issues -- the former because some passengers might not get their checked luggage in time to dress for dinner and the latter because the passengers have to pack their dress clothes for the trip home. Evenings when the ship is scheduled to stay in port into the dinner hour also are pretty consistently "casual."

>> The second evening and the next to last evening (that is, the ninth evening on a cruise of ten days) are always "formal" evenings for the Captain's official "Welcome Aboard!" and the Captain's official farewell. On cruises with three "formal" evenings, the third "formal" evening is usually around the middle of the cruise (either the fifth evening or the sixth evening on a cruise of ten nights).

>> The evenings between the second evening and the next to last evening are pretty much "up for grabs" but that's not a problem because you have plenty of time to resequence your wardrobe onboard.

You'll find the schedule for the whole cruise in the daily bulletin ("Celebrity Today") that will be in your cabin when you arrive.

Yes, complete with tropical deck party, and it's always on a "casual" evening. Celebrity seems to hold the tropical deck party on an evening when the ship stays in port fairly late, if there is one.

It's not exactly a "white" night. Rather, GTS Constellation and GTS Summit have a "white masquerade" party in the disco/nightclub one evening. It's one of the last two remnants of the "Bar at the Edge of the Earth" that featured Cirque du Soleil characters. The original scam was that you had to buy a mask in the Cirque du Soleil shop to wear with your white clothes, but most passengers turned that down. In order to get people to participate, they now say that you can make a mask out of a bingo card. Basically, they supposedly project lighting displays around the room including on the people so the purpose of the white is to act like a projection screen. Honestly, it's a big dud so don't worry about bringing white clothes for it.

Celebrity's speicalty restaurants conform to the same dress code as the ship except on "casual" evenings, when they require "informal" attire (again, that means a sport coat and tie for gents).

Thanks Norm,

You answered all of my questions (or rather, those of my wife). Much appreciated.

Erik
