Default Questions

We are cruising in March and I have two questions. When will we know what nights are formal? Do we know before we leave? I think I know what the muster drill is but maybe someone can tell me for sure and tell me when it happens. Thanks!!

Formal nights are usually your full sea days.

Muster drill is your safty drill. On your cabin door will be your muster assignment when they blow the disaster signal you will take your life jacket and go to your assigned station. They will tell you what to do in the event of an emergency.

Hi there...

Normally, the first formal night is the second night aboard your cruise. I don't think it always falls on a sea day (my last cruise, the formal farewell night was after a day in port). The last formal night of the cruise is never the last night of the voyage since that is the night when you place your bags outside your room before 10pm for collections. The last night of the cruise is extremely casual. Keep your eye on the Princess Patter that you'll receive each night. It will tell you what the dress of the next evening will be.

Also, the muster station drill takes part the day of departure. It usually happens an hour to a half hour before the ship leaves the port. I usually get to the muster station about 5 minutes early....to avoid the rush up and down the stairs to get the station itself. Keep your eyes peeled for that particular day's Princess Patter as it will have the exact time on when your emergency drill is scheduled.

I hope that this helps! Have a great cruise!
