Default Renting Tux Onboard

Has your guy ever rented a tux onboard? Did it go smoothly or did you have problems?

The first time Gary wore a tux on a cruise, we did rent it from the cruiseline. At that time, you ordered it online prior to sailing. We sent off all of the necesary measurements and the tux was delivered once we were onboard. It fit perfectly. After that cruise, I bought Gary a tux and he takes it on all of our cruises now.

Trip,

Has your guy...

Whoa! Stop right there! What's with the bleepin' sexism???

I don't have a guy. I AM a guy!

... ever rented a tux onboard? Did it go smoothly or did you have problems?

No, I have never rented a tuxedo onboard. On my first few cruises, I opted for the dark suit then decided that a white dinner jacket would be a better choice for cruising, as most cruises go to warm destinations. I rented dinner jacket outfits from a local tuxedo shop for a couple cruises, then realized that I could buy the basic outfit for the cost of two or three rentals. I subsequently purchased a third shirt for longer cruises and a couple sets of cuff links and studs to provide additional variety. On one cruise, though, I did rent cuff links and studs ($5.00) when I discovered, while unpacking, that I had forgotten them.

Most tuxedo shops ashore will rent a "cruise package" (jacket, pants, two shirts with studs and cuff links, a cummerbund and matching tie, a vest and matching tie, and shoes if you need them) for about ten or twenty dollars less than the cruise lines charge. OTOH, you do have to pack it if you rent it at home.

Norm.

I rented a tux and shoes through Royal Caribbean online-sent them my measurements. The tux was delivered about an hour before we set sail. The room attendant picked it up after the last formal night. I had no problems at all. It was all flawless!
