Hi Madeline,
Any color would be fine, I've seen just about everything, but you can't go wrong with a classic black...

color is a non-issue, wear what makes you feel good.

I am in total agreement with LisaK & Donna - good advice. Wear what U look good and feel good in- the rest is unimportant right??

Whatever strikes your fancy as far as color goes will be just fine. As stated above go with what you feel comfortable with.

I LOVE black so that's the number one reason I travel with a lot of it. But a close second reason is that it's very forgiving as to stains. If I "dribble" food or wine, it doesn't show. Also it's versatile. You can throw practically any scarf, jacket, vest, etc. on with it and have a new outfit.

I found out the ultimate advantage to wearing a bright color on formal night - easy to find your pics on the wall. I wore red and I could spot us among all the others easily. Mostly just dress to please yourself - if you feel good you look good - have a great cruise - TTFN Jennifer

I have found that going to the Photo Galleries and looking at the pictures of "real" people helped me out a lot. It gives me a good idea of what is being worn on the ship.

I tend to be drawn to anything black.. Then I only have to bring one pair of dress shoes. I love to spice it up with jewelry and a nice shawl.

Just wear whatever is comfortable.
