Default Formal night

Hi..wife and I are first timers..going on the Monarch 3/4-3-9. Can anyone tell us how many formal nights (tuxes and gowns) we can expect? Also wondering if polos and khakis are acceptable dress for dinner? Thanks!

Default Re: Formal night

We cruised on the Explorer last month,( 1st timers also) but the format is probably the same. 2 formal nights for 7 day cruises. Some wore tuxes and long gowns, but mostly the men wore regular suits amd women wore dressy (coctail-type) dresses or pantsuits. For the first formal night(Sun.), I wore a sparkly top that I wear for Xmas parties and dressy, black crepe slacks. I saw a lot of women in sparkly tops and black skirts or pants, so I felt in style. The 2nd night (Wed), I wore my latest mother-of-the-groom dress.(short) and still felt comfortable. My hubby wears a tux for his kids weddings only. We changed right after dinner to less formal clothes. Girlfriends who have cruised before were my pre-cruise wardrobe consultants and they steered me right.
One night was "smart casual" night, sort of an ambiguous "dressy casual", but was overshadowed by country&western night at the disco. They said we could wear our C&W togs if we wanted to.(We don't own any) Nice polos and khakis are probably all right, but no shorts. I wore "church clothes" the other nights and fit right in. Don't obsess over it. Relax and have fun! As all our friends and our TA said' "You will love it!"
