We're going on a 10 day to Panama on the Coral Princess, leaving Sunday 3/16; at sea the first two days. Does anyone know for sure if Formal night will be Monday (1st day) or Tuesday? It matters to us because Monday is St Paddy's day
On the 3 Coral voyages I've been on, it's always been the 2nd night of the sailing. Never the first night because it can be rather hectic and some pax may not have received their luggage. Even if it is St. Paddy's day, I think they'd stick to it - you can always add something green to your formal attire - even a fake green carnation! Being of part Irish heritage that's what I'd do.
