We've never sailed on HAL before. We're booked on Maasdam, Canada/New England in May 2006. We've been on other ships and have noticed that "formal" nights are not as formal as they once were. But I get the impression that HAL is a more traditional cruise line. DH has a tux, but hates to wear it. He doesn't own a suit and doesn't want one. He's much more comfortable in nice sport jacket, slacks and tie. I have some things that will go with either the tux or sport jacket depending on the accessories I choose, so it doesn't matter for me. I'd like to hear from some of you who've sailed HAL recently. Did all the men wear tux and/or dark suits on formal nights or were there a few sport jackets here and there? Basically, how out of place am I going to feel if DH insists on leaving the tux at home?
