Default 10-day Southern Caribbean - Formal Nights?

Hi all,

As you can see, my posts have picked up in frequency since we will sail on the 20th. That brings me to another question...on the 10-day Southern Caribbean itinerary (1st stop Princess Cays), which nights are the formal nights? OR, do they change with each different sailing? If anyone has any feedback I would appreciate it.

Also, I rented tuxedos for my sons, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the on-board rentals?

Thanks, friends!

Alison

There will be two formal nights. The first one is usually the first day after the sail date. The second one is on the next to last night of the cruise.

I have always brought my own tux, so I cannot help you there.

Default Thank you!

Thank you Irish Shark. I knew about the two nights, just didn't know which nights they would be. I'm just sort of a planner. Thanks again.

Hi Alison:

Looks like we're going to be cruise mates as we're also booked for the Xmas cruise on Emerald.
As for your question, when we've rented Tuxedos in the past they were either in our cabin or arrived shortly afterwards. If any repairs needed to be done we just told our cabin steward and he sent it to be fixed. After the 2nd formal night the cabin steward collected everything from our cabin. It's easy and great to just rent a Tux and not have to pack one or a suit.

Hi SF,

Thanks for your reply. So glad to hear that you will be on the Christmas Cruise. Who are you traveling with, if you don't mind me asking? And where are you traveling from?

Hi Alison,

This time around it's just DH and myself. The kids ( I call them kids but they are in their 20's) aren't joining. How about you? Who are you traveling with?

We don't have far to get to the cruise port as we reside in Florida. Where are you from?
