My husband and I will be on the ship. It is our first cruise but we are going with several other couples who have all cruised before. I have traveled a great deal in the Carribean but never on a cruise. I have read the many messages regarding the Noordam and am just a little leary, but as all have said the price was definitely right. We have not been to a couple of the ports so it will give us not only to visit some old friends but also explore some new islands.

Dear GDK

We would be glad to meet both of you any time on the ship. Do you know your room number and are you going down to Tampa the night before the cruise.

Don't know our room number yet. Do you know any of the specifics about the cruise in terms of how many formal dinner nights? Do you know if HAL requires the men to wear jackets on any non-formal nights? Do you have your room assigned yet?

Yes , my room number is A122. I picked this cabin when we booked.

Hal has 2 formal nights per week. (never the first night) 4 total this cruise.

No, you don't have to wear a suit coat on non-formal nights. Maybe a sport coat with dress shirt.

See info from Hal web-site:

Evening dress falls into three separate categories - casual, informal and formal. Each night, a daily program will be delivered to your stateroom announcing the suggested dress for the following evening.

Comfortable, relaxed clothing is fine for evenings designated as casual; however, T-shirts, jeans and shorts are not allowed in the dining room or public areas. During informal nights, dresses or pantsuits for women and jackets (tie optional) for men are standard.

On festive formal evenings, women usually wear cocktail dresses or gowns and men usually wear business suits or tuxedos. There are approximately two formal nights per week. (Gentlemen: Though business suits or tuxedos are suggested attire for formal evenings, they are certainly not required. You are welcome to wear a jacket and tie on formal nights.) Formalwear for ladies and gentlemen can be pre-ordered for your use for the duration of your cruise. Just call Cruise Line Formalwear at 800-551-5091 to reserve and it will be ready in your stateroom when you board.

Hope this helps
