Just did this yesterday for the Grand 9/28/03. The website is www.cruiselineformal.com. The tux will be delivered to your cabin on day of embarkation. It is returned to cabin steard the last night of cruise. It is 85.00 for the tux including 2 shirts, cumberbun and cufflinks/studs. Shoes can be rented for 12.00 and you can rent suspenders for 5.00. Did this last cruise too and all were high quality.
Renting a tux is fun if you don't have formal wear and want to try it. Or even if you own one and want to travel lighter. We migrated from the dark suit to renting the tux to actually buying one. If you are going to cruise more than once, it might pay to buy one. We've found more uses for it on land too, now that we have one. When we rented, it was brought to our room on the first day and it was picked up after the last formal night.
Thanks all! I never did pick up my 1st set of Cruise docs. Since I filled out the required forms for departure on-line I didn't think I needed to pick them up from the TA. Guess all that important info was with it.
After 6 cruises, I broke down and bought a tux. Wish I had done it sooner! It's basically paid for in two cruises. This will be the 3rd so it's almost a freebee, except for drycleaning. All I have to do is keep my body at the same size!!!!! Next purchase, a white dinner jacket.
We also bought my husband a tux for our daughters wedding and now have it handy for cruising, best investment we've made in a long time. You can find them on sale for reasonable prices. We just happened apon a Gingess semi-annual sale, where they sell both used and new ones and big savings, so that something to look out for, just a thought :-)
Speaking of dry cleaning, I have it done as soon as I board the ship. Their prices are competitive with having it done on shore. Then I don't have to be concerned about how it's packed. (G)
