Just how dressy do we get? We are cruising Jan. 31st from Florida thru the Panama Canal and ending in Puerto Caldera Cost Rica. Have sailed before but only on "casual" type lines........ Thanks for any info you can give me
Hi and welcome to the Seabourn family--you will love Legend's great food and service.
First and last nights are casual and there are usually two formal (tuxedo or dark suit for men and dressy cocktail or evening wear for women) while the rest are elegant casual (jacket , no tie required for men and resort dressy for women). That being said, Caribbean cruises in general tend to be more informal. Your TA should be able to guide you on "dressiness" on Seabourn Caribbean cruises.
The verandah grill is now open nightly and dress there is generally casual. But don't bother bringing jeans--it's too warm in the Caribbean for them anyway.
I think that people do trend to dress up more on Seaborn then on some of the other lines. On the two Seaborn cruises we have been on I would say about 65-70% of the men did wear tuxes on formal nights and most of the woman in long gowns or long skirts and dressy tops
Although the Tux is still worn by most Gentlemen on Formal evenings,especially on the smaller yachts
The larger ships give you more options to dine in different locations more casually attired,therefore attracting those that are seeking a more dressed down look.
I do not mean dressed down NCL look. :o
