Default Dress Code and Parking at Harwich

I'm off on the Jewel of the Seas at the end of June to the Baltics. The brochure states 2 formal nights and 3 smart casual nights. What is classed as formal wear for a female insomuch would it be acceptable for me to wear a nice dress without going over the top? On previous cruises this is what I've done, but I'm wondering if a smart dress is what RCL are classing as smart casual. Also for fellas is it OK for them to wear tie, trousers and jacket? We don't want to miss the formal nights but don't want the added expense of having to purchase additional fancy wear when we'll never wear it again.

We are sailing from Harwich and I've cruised from here before but never paying for car parking. Now the brochures states that parking is £5 per day making a total of £60 - what!!! Is this correct?

Since you don't plan on tipping anyone, who cares what you wear !

Default Harwich boarding

We are boarding Jewel in Harwich in September.

Question: Do they allow you to bring liquor or bottled water onboard (for use in room). Is the luggage checked?

Hello Daisy,

The Formal Nights are a 'Black Tie' affair, Tux and the trimmings, but a dark suit and shirt and tie will do for the hubby. I'm sure you have a nice couple of frocks in the wardrobe you could take with you. Alternatively, you could utilise the services of www.cruiseformal.com who will supply formal attire at a reasonabl'ish' cost and will be delivered to your stateroom.

The no tipping comment was low and unwarranted by the way.

Have a great cruise!

My first is on the 11th of this month from Barcelona.

Hello subtropic, look at the date on that post ? This was from a heated discussion two months ago. Daisy said she was not going to tip anyone on her cruise. I responded then and have not said a word since. What is it doing back up ?
