Default Formal Nights on 12-Day cruise.....?

We've only been on 7- or 8-night cruises before and they have had what I would term 2 formal nights.

We're booked on Carnival's Freedom for a 12-Night cruise in the Med next May. I wondered if they try to squeeze in more formal nights?

Looking at the itinerary, there aren't really many "fun days at sea"....I'm kind of hoping there are only 2 formal nights.

Anyone that has done a Carnival 12-day cruise.....what should I anticipate?

Practices vary from cruise line to cruise line and I can't speak specifically for Carnival, but most cruises of twelve nights seem to have three "formal" evenings -- the evening of day #2, the evening of day #11, and an evening somewhere around the middle of the cruise (probably around day #6 or day #7). The "formal" evening in the middle usually falls on either a day at sea or a day when the ship leaves port early. You can count on no more than three "formal" evenings.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.

I was going to say 3 formal nights.

Thanks Steve for your Grand Princess experience. We sail the Grand Med itinerary this May on the Emerald Princess. I hope its just two formal nights. I am trying to pack lighter this trip! That is always a challenge.

Bon Voyage
