Default men's dress

We are cruising on the Rhapsody of the Sea in July. My husband does not want to buy a suit for the formal nights. He has a sports jacket. Will this be OK?

We're going on our first cruise in May - on the Celebrity Mercury to Alaska. My husband is in the same boat...we're also hoping a dark jacket will be OK.

as long as the jacket is dark, the trousers are dressy, with a shirt, tie & dress shoes he will be just fine.

My husband wore a dark navy sports jacket, shirt and matching tie, and dark olive dress pants on one of the formal nights of our last cruise. On the other formal night he used the same jacket, different shirt and tie, and a pair of dark grey pants. He looked awesome! I think as long as you look "stuffy" and formal you will fit right in. The sports jacket is the best investment he has made....so versatile..and he feels comfortable in it. That is what is important...feeling comfortable! Don't worry about a tux, unless of course that is what he wants to do!

As long as its not "Black tie", you'll be fine. Go in peace with the SJ.
Happy kruzin'
