We cruise Carnival and, yes, kids go on formal nights too. It's fun for the family to all dress up and the pictures are great.

Duct tape has many uses.........if your suitcase rips, duct tape; if you get a blister, duct tape...........................I know many people pack it. I never have enough room!

/wrap some duct tape around a ballpoint pen and carry it along--comes in handy if suitcases give way (altho miami has the shrink wrap men who saved our broken bag).
Dress up--it is one of the few chances you have. We have ordered tuxes for our young adults and they enjoy the family portraits we have from formal nights.

You can get travel size duct tape at WalMart! Look where they sell the big rolls, in housewares/home improvement. It's 99 cents... I keep a package in an outside pocket of my suitcase "just in case".

It's around $100 to rent a full tux attire on the ship.

By the way, my hubby wore nice slacks/nice shirt - did just fine

Typical formal night "uniform" for boys and teen boys on Carnival: dress slacks, dress shirt and tie, dress shoes. Some will wear jackets, but most won't. Some will wear clean sports shoes, but I saw many wearing dress shoes.

Typical after dinner "uniform" for boys and teen boys on Carnival: shorts and hawaiian type shirt or t-shirts............they all run back to their cabins and change right after dinner!!!! Moms.....get your pictures while you can!

My boys (10 and 12) were not excited to get dressed up. But after the first formal night, they had no trouble getting ready for the second one. They enjoyed looking sharp and gave us no trouble. They were glad to have beeen properly dressed. They both wore dark suits, white shirts, and a tie, with dress shoes. My pictures from both formal nights were great.
