What to wear, What to eat, What to do? You are here today because the questions may be rolling around in your mind whilst preparing for your imminent cruise. Formal Night On Board A Cruise Ship is one of the best sailing experiences you will have. The glitz, the glamour and the entertainment all add to a spectacular evening at sea. Are you ready? Read on to find out how to make the most of a Formal Night On Board A Cruise ship.
Firstly I must stress that you are not required to join in with formal evening and would perhaps prefer to dine in the buffet area instead.
A ball gown or cocktail dress is usually required for a formal evening. Be sure to check your cruise lines dress code and read their terms in what they consider to be formal wear. I always advise my readers to join in with Formal Night On Board A Cruise Ship as you can never be too overdressed. Take at least two formal dresses thinking about the lingerie you are going to wear underneath to keep your outfit together. Shoes and jewellery are also excellent items to plan ahead for. A small purse or clutch bag to keep your camera handy is also a must-have fashion accessory for a formal evening.
Tuxedo for sure, or failing that a nice formal suit including cufflinks and polished shoes. A tie is imperative. Any colour suit will do but on a formal evening, my advice would be to respectfully stick to a white shirt.
Those of you who may be suite guests will prefer to enjoy a few quiet drinks in the comfort of the member’s lounge. The night will start off by swooning around the ship, admiring the dress sense of fellow guests and stopping at photo stations to make a memory or two. You may prefer to have an early dinner followed by a show or vice versa. There are two performances of a formal evening. Then why not settle in the piano bar for a nightcap before retiring to your cabin.
I always look forward to dinner on a formal evening as you can expect opulent dishes such as lobster and champagne for the ladies. Seafood is usually a big choice but there will be plenty of other options also.
