Default Bolo Tie

DH wants to know what you all think about him wearing a Bolo Tie with his suit on Formal night rather then the traditional necktie. He just prefers the Bolo, but if not acceptable he will wear the regular necktie.

I'm not sure what cruise line we are talking about, but my DH has worn bolo's on formal nights and it was fine.

Marty is right -- it depends entirely upon the cruise line. I would recommend against wearing a bolo tie in the strongest possible terms if you are cruising on Celebrity, for example.

We are going on the Coral Princess to Alaska in 3 weeks. So I guess the Bolo will work. He will be sooooo happy about that.
Thanks for your replies

In that case, I would recommend bringing a standard necktie as well since a necktie does not take much room in a suitcase. That way, he'll have it available if he finds that he needs or wants it.

Every cruise, I sneak on of my DH's nice silk ties into my suitcase. And, every cruise, he accuses me of bringing it to strangle him with. He has worn it at times, but I guess he spent too many years having to wear one.
