what type of information are you looking for exactly? You can order them online thru Princess- go to the website. Go to a tux rental shop at home or a tailor and get EXACT measurements for your tux. The tuxes are nice, good quality, classic black tux, with 2 white pleated tux shirts, black bow tie, you can order accessories like button covers & cuff links (or bring your own), cumberbuns,even socks & shoes.
Roughly three tux rentals equals one tux purchase. I bought mine many, many moons ago, not so much for cruises but because for a time I attended black tie business dinners held in different cities in Europe. Since the trips themselves lasted a couple weeks it would have been expensive to rent at home, and renting in Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, etc. would have been inconvenient. The nice thing is that they don't go out of style, and since most people only wear them a couple times a year they do last forever.
For years I have used www.cruisewearformal.com for cruising. The tux has always fit and been in new or great condition........and waiting in my cabin. When the cruise is over your steward picks it up and takes care of everything.
Princess used to have a link to them somewhere on the web site. I have rented from them about 15 times, including the cruise we are leaving on 1/18/2005 on the Sun; each time has been a winner.
I ordered mine for our upcoming cruise on cruiselineformal.com. All you do is to click on Princess on that site and you order from there and it will be in your room when you board. $85 will get you a tux with two shirts. You can also order other items to go with it ie; shoes,vests. etc. I have ordered 3 other times without a problem. They show you on the site where to take the measurements.
Our cruise is 10 days with 2 formal nights. Will I have to pay $85 each time or is it mine for the cruise? Never cruised before and if I don't have to pack a suit it will save some room for other stuff. It seems that with 2 shirts it would be good for 2 uses, yes? Can someone give me a definitive answer? Thanks.
You can go through the hassle of tux wearing if that is what you want. But tuxes are really optional on all the cruises of Princess class. I dont bother with tuxes, but that is me. Formal nights means they PREFER you wear suits or a tux. I have seen many people with slacks and shirt and no tie, but about 60% will be in a suit, and generally the balance in a tux. I have never seen anyone escorted out of the dining room, but I imagine if you showed up in a swimming suit, that would happen.
So dont feel you Have to wear a tux. It means either added costs, or added baggage. The choice is yours.
