There is now a thread on another board as to why people find it so necessary to know beforehand exactly which nights on their upcoming cruise are the formal, informal, and casual nights. As long as you know the # of formal nights in order to pack for them could someone tell me why it matters to know whether Sunday or Monday for example are the actual formal nights? You are going to find out the proper dress for each night after you are on the ship, so why do people go to so much trouble to find out beforehand? It can't be in order to book reservations at the alternative restaurant because the restaurants are not crowded and can easily be booked the day you want to go or even that night itself. Could someone answer this, please. Maybe the person who asked the question here?
I am asking because some the excersions we have booked will not allow us to get back in time for the early dinner hour we have pre-booked. Why bring extra clothing we will not need if we are not going to be there for dinner formal, informal or other wise!!
