Hi there!! How do I find out how many formal nights to prepare for? I know I can wear the same dress if I wanted, but I want to enjoy and dress up! I'm going on a 7 night Cruise--how do I find out how many Formal nights and also, what goes on during formal night? Is it dinner and dancing--maybe equal to a formal New Years Eve Party??
I'm ready to shop!!!!!
Usually, the big shows will be on formal night. There is dancing before dinner, but after, the band is doing the show. So, not like a formal New Year's party. The disco and other "nightclubs" on board will have dancing all evening, pretty much every evening.
you will have two formal nights on your 7 day cruise. The Captain's Welcome Aboard Dinner and the Captains Farewell Dinner. These are special nights, the cruise line "Puts on the Ritz" special menu, the staff is in their dress uniforms, the tables are dressed in the fine linen, china, crystal, and it is a great opportuntity to get a professional portrait taken, activites vary from line to line. On Princess for example they have a champagne fountain at midnight on the second formal night.
