Default Tails or no Tails....that is the question

Does anyone here know if tails are too formal for a formal dinner on the Inspiration?

I love the look of a tux with tails and a classy vest, but also don't want to show up looking like a idiot. :-)

Dale,

On most cruise lines, tails are not appropriate because formal nights are "black tie" rather than "white tie." Tails are correctly worn only to "white tie" events.

Thanks Norm for the info. Think I'll stick to the simple tux. :-)

good choice - a simple basic tux is your best bet.

I sailed on the Inspiration this past Dec. The people that cater to Carnival tend to dress less formal than on the upscale lines. Don't recall even seeing a tux on this ship!

Happy Sailing!
