Default QM2 - Dress Code?

Hi, my wife and I are both 29 and we are looking at the May 10, 2005 Meditteranean cruise. Could you tell me what the dress code is for this ship....for the buffets...for the restaurants...for the casino...for just walking around? Also, is this a good cruise for two individuals who will be 30 when we go?

Thanks much!

Mitch

hi mitch,
you will fit right in on the QM2, my husband and I are 26 and 24 respectively and have sailed on her twice and are looking forward to our next one. there are usually three formal, three semi formal and three casual nights on a nine night cruise. The first night has been casual both nights we have sailed. Are you departing southampton? If so i would get there early and enjoy the ship whilst there are few people onboard. the taxi from the airport is about 6.00/person, as you fly in you come in over the QE2 dock and she her bearthed. Be calm! I was juming around like a fool!
I would recommend you book late seating for dinner and request a table in Rae's section(britannia). He is a superb assistant maitre'd who cannot do enough for you. the dress codes are enforced for dinner and a DJ and evening gown are the norm for formal, dark suit and cocktail dress for semi-formal(you do need a jacket) and slacks and open collered shirt for casual.
Take a look at my photos in the gallery, (QM2 Southampton - Athens) and you'll get some idea. What do you like doing at night? We usually (how bad is it that we have a routine?) get ready and have a pre-dinner drink in the golden lion, stroll off for dinner, take a walk on 7 deck, always worth it for that exta romance (!! ), and head to the casino, back to the pub and down to G32 for the rest of the night. We only see the comidean as we are not great show fans. Being on board will make you feel like a celebrity as you depart and thousands of people come out to see you off.
At night there is always something going on, the karaoke is always fun in the golden lion.
during the day resort casual, shorts and polo shirts are the norm, sunbathing is best on 8 deck aft by the pool. There are always daily activities going on and are well worth doing to get to know your fellow ship mates. I also have a review in the ship reviews section.
I know this is all a bit long, but i hope it helps.
feel free to pm me with any questions you might have.

Hi Lexxity
Just checked out the photo gallery and the pics you took of your athens cruise look great looks like you had a great time. Was the last pic taken on a formal night and is this a good example of what to wear or was this an informal night?
From reading the message board it seems that you and your hubby have had a few cruises on cunard, my hubby and i are the same age as it's my fist cruise i was a bit worried about it being full of older people, as i have booked it as a suprise for him.

Hi Mitch

I find I do not have any decent photos of formal nights but here's a picture of our table on the QE2 last May in the Med : http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/holiday_p...s/people01.jpg.

The picture shows the typical standard of dress. A good number of men were wearing white jackets for dinner while in the sunnier climes.

hi lisa,
we started cruising in 2001, but only picked it up again this year, we both love it!
What country do you live in? if it is the UK check out monsoon for evening wear and you will be right on the nose with formal and semi-formal wear.
