Default formal cruise wear first time cruiser

I am finally going on my first cruise. Speaking of formal, I am sailing on the Miracle March 19, anyone been on this ship? I am bringing 2 dressy outfits for formal nights. When you say formal do you mean ball gowns or will the classic smashing black dress do? Is it really cold in the dining rooms?

Cruise virgin, you might want to post this on either the dress board, or the board for the ship on which you are sailing. This is the gripes board and while you will get LOTS of gripes on this subject, you might not get much constructive advise!

totally agree with Dorothy - post over on the Cruise Dress/Packing thread.
To answer your question - you can NEVER go wrong with the little black cocktail dress. Accessorize it with a pair of dressy heels and some great jewerly and you are all set for formal night.
