Default 1st time! Shoppee..what to take

Hi, i've read the posts already on what you recommend people to take when they work on board.

Naturally, as a girl i've got a few specific questions!
I'll be working as a Shoppee for Harding Brothers (probably P&O or Cunard)

Do i need to take lots of clothes to wear after work? I know i may not finish til 10pm or later, but i assume i'll have to get changed? Do i take some jeans etc or do people wear their uniform??
Do the girls get dresses up. For example, do they have parties wear they dress up like they would if they wer on a night out in town?
So do i need to take various pairs or high heels and accessories!! (im a real girly girl!)
D oi need to take hangers to hang up my clothes?

Any other tips? Espesh from the UK girls who worked onboard!!
Thanks!!!

Hello!
I have been granted an interview with Harding Brothers too. Could you tell me what sort of questions they asked you or provide any other suggestions to help me with the interview? I'm really excited about the interview and I don't want to screw it up. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Judy

Probably not, on the crew decks people tend to dress very casually. If you are in tropical waters take tropical clothes. In fact, just take a few things and count on buying clothes when you get to where you are going. But really dressing up (gowns, high heels) is very unlikely unless you are required to do so by the ship on formal nights.
