Default Do I need a Tux on the Carnival Conquest?

I am going on a one week cruise, and there are two formal nights. Do I need a tux, or can I just wear a suit?

Do most men wear a tux to the formal nights?

We are going on our 19th cruise next weekend and my DH has always worn a nice suit and never felt under dressed. We take his suit in our carry on luggage and turn it in the first day for dry cleaning. It is returned the next day before Formal night. I would guess about 15% or less wear a tux. Once on board, you can go to Formalities and rent one for the week if you change your mind.

You will be fine with a dark suit, you will see some men in their tux's as well, but more will be wearing dark suits.
