I was thinking of taking a travel kettle for our cabin. Do you think I would need one?
I'm also in a dilemma about my dresses for formal night. I have already had one black dress which is nearly floor length, sleeveless with a sequin trim. I am also about to purchase another black dress which is floor length matt satin with a chiffon trim and stole. It looked lovely on. I am just a bit concerned that there won't be many women with floor length dresses. Do the majority of women wear them or is it only a small minority.
We are cruising to the caribbean in April for 14 nights. How many formal nights will we have? Will it be more than two?
I think you will see 50/50 on dress length. Black dresses are the most common -- depending on the time of year -- tropical prints are also very common. If you have to buy another dress -- you might consider something such as black pants or a long skirt that can be worn with two different tops.-- but whatever you feel good in is key! Keeping your formal clothes to a certain color that you can wear the same shoes is a great space saver.
your outfits sound perfect. The majority of women will be wearing long, especially on a longer cruise. Wear the dressier of your outfits on the first formal - the Captain's Gala Welcome Aboard is the dressier of the formal nights. You will have 3 formal nights on a 14 day cruise, you can wear the same dress twice, just change the accessories.
I noticed most women wore longer formal dresses and looked beautiful...I thought more people participated the second formal night with the champagne waterfall....just my experience 2 wks ago...have fun!
I took the original post to mean that they might be on a back to back cruise? If that is the case, they would have 2 formal nights each week. But since most of the passengers will be different the second week, I would still only bring two formal dresses. We just returned from the Golden and there were lots of full length gowns, so no problem.
