Default Formal nights on Grand Princess

I am sailing overseas on QM2 and home on the Grand Princess. Should wear the same dresses for the formal nights on each ship. I have had some really fancy dresses made for QM2 because we are sailing in queens grill, but I don't want to be over dressed on Princess. I know that the Grand is also a very nice ship, but I thought that Cunard made more of a big deal of fancy wear than most cruise lines. I have almost a week in Europe where I will have to schlep all my luggage around, so I am trying to be conservative.

Cunard will be more fancy, but your dresses for QM2 will be just fine for Grand Princess.

If you are talking about fancy ballgowns then you would be in the minority on Princess ,if however you are talking about very nice long dresses, then that's what the majority of the women will be wearing. Some ladies opts for long dressy skirts with dressy or sparkly tops, some opt for dressy cocktail dresses and some wear dressy pant suits.
I would pick the dress or two that you love, ones that aren't ultra fancy and you will be just fine.

I agree, you can certainly wear the same dress you wore on the GM2, no problem. Princess is also pretty fancy, you'll see plenty of the guys in their tux's and women in long evening gowns as well.

I do have two "ball" gowns that I am going to be bringing, but I guess I will also bring two lower key ones. I'm having so much fun just thinking about it!!!!

just a bit more info for you. The first formal night - the Captain's Gala Welcome Aboard is the dressier of the two formal nights.
