Hi KODI,

I'd "guess" 18! 64 days/7 (a one week cruise) =9. Two formal nights a week (9x2=18!) .

Really, I think this would be one of those questions where you should call HAL and ask !

I'd love to do a cruise this long, but not 18 formal nights !

Have a wonderful cruise and be sure to come back and tell us all about it!

KODI,

HAL's website doesn't provide that info?

Try their website again, as I'm sure the dress code is listed.

Happy cruising,

Dean

call your travel agent and ask. If you didn't use a TA, call HAL customer service

Not only all that laundry Mehawk but I'm thinking of all the patches I would need to prevent sea sickness

I wonder if my insurance company would paid for that many patches
Hope you have a GREAT TIME Kodi - when you get back we'll be looking forward to hearing from you. Better yet, if you can go wireless, send us a day to day progress report.

Default HI FROGGIE620

[/b]HI FROGGIE620,

I guess that I am just lucky....do not need patches...that many would really be a problem......you might get things stuck that shouldn't be stuck!!!

My TA did find out that there will be 18 formal nights,,,,,I still can't believe that this dream will come true!!! Even thought there is still a lot of days left till the sailing.....I am just getting so excited!!!

REGARDS

KODI
