Default 1st time on a Princess ship. What is considered formal for

I have never sailed Princess before. What would be consider formal for men on the Golden Princess? We are on the Golden doing Western Europe and Trans-Atlantic 8/20/05 - 9/3/05. I normally wear a dark suit or a navy blazer with dark slacks.

What is expected as normal on the ship. PLEASE don't tell me what you desire. ALL I need to know is what is normally acceptable to the ship.

I have no problem with other people dressing down, I don't myself, can't image myself in the dining room in shorts. My cruise doesn't depend upon how another person dresses.

I use to like to wear formal attire. But don't own any formal clothing anymore. I did when I was much younger and alot thinner. I haven't had a tux on in 25 years. I do want to eat in the dining room nightly so if a tux, dinner jacket or something like that is required I can rent one.

I dress up almost daily for work.

Thanks,

Don

Hi Don! From my experience, the dark suit seems to be the norm. Enjoy!

We were on the Star and for regular dinner night, most men dressed in slacks and a nice shirt (polo, button up, some full suit) and for the formal night I saw many men in black or dark suits. I think I saw maybe 10 guys with a tux on.

Have fun!

Formal is either a tux or dark suit.

Don - the majority of the men will be in dark suits on formal nights. You might see more tuxs on a Trans-Atlantic, but the majority will still be dark suits.
All other nights are resort casual which for most men is a nice pair of dockers type slacks a nice button-down or polo type shirt and nice shoes.
The dress code seems to go up just a bit on an Euro,Trans-Atlantic cruise over a Caribbean cruise

Suits or Tuxedo's on formal nights. Dockers or dress pants with sports shirts on resort casual nights.

Dark suits and Tux's are the norm. With Princess, you'll just have the "formal" and the "casual" evenings, no in between, which I love.
