We'll be on Oceania Cruise Line's Insignia next month.
The brochure says "country club casual".
Anyone who has been on this ship---
jackets for men?
silk pants and tops for women?
This is in the various dining rooms of course.
Maybe one dining room is the more "formal" of them all?
Or can we get by with Khaki type slacks and cotton tops?
Thanks for any info on this subject or * any* advice re: this ship.
My husband wore a jacket only one evening. Never a tie. Most of the time he wore chinos and short sleeve shirts. Polo and Toscano may be a tad more dressy, just a tad though.
The bottom line is you wear whatever you would to a "good" restaurant.
We were on the Regatta, but I would imagine the dress would be the same on the Insignia. I was surprised to see how "dressy" it was in the evening. I'd say 25% of the men were in sport coats (very few ties) and the women were wearing dressy casual outfits, even some cocktail attire. Nearly everyone "dressed" for dinner. I saw a lot of Tommy Bahama type silk shirts, nice golf shirts and slacks on the men. Plenty of khaki pants on the men, but the women were dressier than khakis. Silk pants outfits, skirt and top outfits, dresses were the norm. Think what you'd wear to the nicest restaurant at a resort.
The attire was the same for all the restaurants, except maybe at Tapas you could go a bit more casual.
Please email me if you have any other questions. Martha
We're booked for a Med. itinerary on Insignia later this summer too, and I've been mulling over the question of dinner dress. But I don't think we'll take a jacket for my husband. I'm sure a silk shirt and/or golf shirt with nice trousers will be fine for him. For myself, I tend to take dressy black slacks (plus one other basic color - beige, white, etc.) and mix and match with an assortment of nice tops for evenings. There's no "formal" night, thank heavens. I guess on cruises earlier in the season or to northern climates (England, Baltic, etc.) you might spot more men in sport coats. If you want, you can e-mail me at email@example.com and we can compare packing specifics. Marsha
