Default NCL Formal Dress

Help!

I ordered a dress online.. and when it came in it was HORRIBLE.. so I rushed out and got a dress yesterday....

However, my dress comes right below my knees... Is this acceptable for formal nights.. It is dressy (it better be for 140 bucks! ) !

It is a layerd black dress (almost looks like a 20's style dress) and on the end of each layer it has sparkly beads...

Anythoughts?

disneyjo- dressy cocktail type dressess are perfectly fine for formal night. Wear a nice pair of dress heels or sandals and some nice jewelry and you should be just fine in the dress you described.

I have a dress that sounds exactly like yours -- and I have worn it on two occasions on HAL cruises. I felt perfectly comfortable in it. There were other women in short cocktail dresses, and some in dressy pants and tops!
