Default Formal Nights - Mariner

By reading all the great information on this site, I have gathered that on a 7 day western carribean cruise (leaving 14th December) there will be 2 formal nights.

but can anyone tell me what happens on these nights, obviously I know everyone dresses up, but what else? and would I be missing out if I had booked one of the speciality restaurants for that evening?

You'll find a bit more festive evening in the dinning room on a formal evening, a good menu too. If at all possible, choose a different night for the speciality restaurant and enjoy the elegance of the formal night in the dinning room, I think you'll certainly enjoy it.

[color=indigo]We booked the specialty restaurants on our last cruise which happened to be on the Mariner western caribbean also. Formal nights are Monday and Thursday. I really didn't miss it. Now with all the luggage restrictions and extra pricing imposed by the airlines it was nice to scale down a bit. I really felt that we didn't miss out on anything special. If this is your first cruise you should go to experience it, but if not Chops and Portofino are a nice change.
