Default Formal nights- tux or suit

I have read conflicting information regarding if the majority of men dress in tux or dark suits. Please help. Thanks.

Hi Anne,
I'd say if you already have a tux, go ahead and take it along, if not a dark suit will do fine :-)

Anne,

It seems to be about an even mix between tuxes and dark suits most of the time, perhaps occasionally swinging as far as 70%-30% one way or the other. I have taken seven cruises and have yet to see a situation in which a gentleman wearing either a dark suit or a tuxedo would feel inappropriately dressed.

As I noted in an earlier thread, the gentlemen who wear dark suits tend to be gentlemen who own a dark suit because they wear it on other occasions, either professionally or socially, and do not own a tuxedo. There are three groups who tend to wear tuxedos -- those who own tuxedos (usually because they wear tuxedos on other occasions), those who don't own dark suits (it's much cheaper to rent the tux than to buy a suit), and those who own a dark suit but rent a tux anyway because they (or their ladies) think it's classier to wear a tux on formal night.

The bottom line is that each gentleman should wear whichever is more convenient on formal nights unless he has a strong personal preference one way or the other.

Norm.

The mix of “formal” (Tux and Dinner Jackets) to dark suits on the Sea princess was about sixty/forty.

I am now giving serious consideration to renting a tux. Can I rent a dinner jacket (and dark trousers) for the two fromal nights?

Yes, u can rent a combo package.. I think it's around $85 for the tux, 2 shirts and slacks.. or $115 and they throw in the white dinner jacket as well.
Those prices may be a bit outdated
