Yes, 2 Usually the first is a "Gown and Tux" formal and the 2nd is a resort formal or "jacket and slacks" formal night.

On carnival...anything goes

I agree with Ryan, there will probably be 2 on that cruise, but with you wont have to get dressed up if you dont want to

When I saw this link I saved it. It has a chart that tells you the cruise length and how many formal nights there are. It gives you a general idea but ts for RCL though.

On Carnival if your cruise is 6 or more days, you will have 2 formal nights.

I'm guessing you're first formal night will be the night after your first fun day at sea, and your second formal night will be the night before your last fun day at sea.

I dress up too! It used to be a parental forced "you have to look nice for dinner and pictures" thing, but now that I'm getting older it is fun to shop for dresses and look nice for some pictures and dinner. I have noticed that a lot of times the sea days can determine where the formal nights are placed, but don't quote me on that one. lol

I love the formal nights, especially on the longer cruises cuz you get to dress up, look good, take pictures all that good stuff.

I don't think i've posted this one cuz I just found it, one of my formals from the freedom...

I have been on the Glory and there was definitely 2 formal nights. I have never heard or a 7 day Carnival cruise that didn't have 2 formal nights.
