Default formal wear

Hi everybody, I would love some help
on the appropriate formal wear to buy.
What is acceptable and what is not.
I am soon to be working aboard a ship for the 1st time
and would greatly love some input.
I am not sure which line I will be with yet, but want to get a head
p.s I'm a girl (if that helps) lol

Depends on what department you work in and if you are 'on duty' at the time. Many lines have a formal uniform specific to the department (marine, casino, food & beverage, etc) - Usually cruise staff and concessions (salon/shops/photogs) might be a little less strict.

When you're "out" on a ship, you're are still going to have to wear a nametag and represent the company, so you don't want anything too wild or deep cut.

I'd go for a simple black dress - on the longer side (below the knee), with some sort of jacket or cover up that goes with it, and maybe some simple (and cheap) costume jewerly to dress it up. If you have to work, comfortable shoes to go with it. Then, one you get to your ship, you can see what people are actually wearing. You'll be able to pick up something new at most of the ports you'll visit - and every girl can use a simple black dress in her collection

Thanks for that info. I will be working for the gift shop department.
I'm just concerned with finding the proper style as in, what type of top should the dress be? Do we need to cover up?
Can staff wear shoe string stapped dresses, do we need to cover our shoulders up, can we wear strapless dresses ? Bare arms ?
any more info before I go out looking will be good.
