No need to worry. They are usually the 1st and 6th night which tend to be sea days on most cruises. Sometimes they are on port days but we early port days like around 2 or 3 pm. Have fun!

Hi pumpkin1017,

I just came back from my 7-day Carnival Glory cruise, and the formal nights were on days 2 and 6. Day 2 was a port day in Nassau; and, on Day 6, we were at sea. The first night is usually the most formal one (and has the best food--lobster! ) and the second night is less formal (from what my kind and caring waiter told me). On the first formal night, you might want to return to the ship early to prep up, because there is a Captain's Cocktail Party at 5:00 PM before the dinner.

This is what the Carnival.com FAQ says:

"For cruises with one formal night, the formal night is scheduled for the second or third evening of the cruise, with schedules permitting. For cruises with two formal nights, the first formal night is scheduled for the second or third evening of the cruise; the second formal night is scheduled for the second or third evening prior to the end of the cruise, with schedules permitting.

1-day cruise: no formal nights
2-day cruise: one formal night
3-day cruise: one formal night
4-day cruise: one formal night
5-day cruise: one formal night
6-day cruise: two formal nights
7-day cruise: two formal nights
8-day cruise: two formal nights
9-day cruise: two formal nights
10-day cruise: two formal nights
11-day cruise: two formal nights
12-day cruise: two formal nights
13-day cruise: two formal nights
14-day cruise: two formal nights
16-day cruise: two formal nights
17-day cruise: two formal nights"

Have a great cruise!
