I would like to schedule my Chops dinner that night as I am not much for formal.
It would be nice to see the ship event schedule before I go..............am I missing it or do they announce after you board?
On most cruises, you'll get the official schedule of evening attire when you arrive aboard. Nonetheless, the pattern is pretty standard.
>> On cruises with two or more formal evenings, the second evening and the next to last usually are "formal." On cruises with more than two "formal" evenings (generally cruises longer than seven nights), the additional "formal" evenings usually fall on days when the ship is either at sea or leaves port early such that they are spaced more or less evenly throughout the cruise.
>> On cruise lines that still have "semiformal" or "informal" evenings, they usually fall on days when the ship is at sea or when the ship leaves port no later than 6:00 PM. On such lines, you can expect that the number of "semiformal" or "informal" evenings and the number of "formal" evenings will add up to about half of the duration (in nights) of the cruise.
>> The first evening, the last evening, evenings when the ship remains in port late, and evenings of deck parties are reliably "casual."
That said, Chops might not be the escape that you wish. On most cruise lines, specialty restaurants require the same evening attire as the main dining rooms.
