that dress looks just fine. you will see people who are ultra-formal and those who are really just dressy-casual. i think you should wear something that you are comfortable with and that you think you look great in. (I also think that dress is gorgeous!)
I agree with Pami, that dress is gorgeous! I think you'll look wonderful on formal night.
Just wait until you're my age! You'll be glad to look 10 years younger!
Have a wonderful cruise!

that dress is very elegant looking. The only way you will know is to try it on and see how you feel in it. It might be a good idea to get a wrap, shawl or passima to go with the strapless- it can be chilly in the dining rooms and shows.
Unfortunately i wasnt able to access the dress u were gonna wear. However theres this great store called TORRID (they specialize in sizes from 12/14-26/30 nothing below 12) they have great dresses and arent pricey i got my dress for my formal night and planning on going there to get my formal night dress for this year's cruise thee one i have my on is about $50-60 but u can probably use it again for another occassion wedding or semi-formal (versatile) i know i will.
That dress is very pretty and will be flattering -- do bring something for your shoulders though in case it is chilly. Some people dress up more than others and you need to wear what you feel good in. 8)
