My family and I are going on the Enchantment for a 9 night cruise this summer. With having kids and my wife and I we are already trying to figure out what to pack.
Outside of the two formal nights, are the rest of the nights generally the same. For men slacks and polo's and for women dress pants and blouse or casual dress? Or do I need a suit for two of the other than formal nights?
New to this forum (today) and so surprised the first post I read is regarding the same ship!!
My daughter and I are also sailing on the EOS this summer...I'm sure I will overpack so I'm not a good one to ask...what's your sail date??
On the nights stipulated, other than casual and formal, you may find some men in sports jackets, but in this day and age of pay per bag, and overweight fees..I think you will do fine, with what you mentioned.

You will be fine without sports jackets or anything like that on the other nights. I usually take a couple of pairs of long pants and maybe a skirt. DH has dockers (usually 2 prs - different shades of beige) and a couple of long sleeved shirts, no ties. Depending on the weather, he will wear short sleeve shirts as well.
I did a 12 day cruise last year. I rented a tux onboard (kept my baggage packing lighter and easier; also rented tux shoes; so one less thing to pack); also packed a pair of jeans, casual slacks; and half dozen long and short sleeve shirts. jogging clothes and sneakers; you will be able to do laundry on the ship; so we stuffed all our undies and socks about midway thru the cruise; hope this helps. The mens tux comes with enough shirts for your formals; we had three formal nights.
