    Can only speak for my DW and I (and perhaps Slowhand and his DW... Terry... Oh Terry... where are you). When we do formal night, we do formal night. She in her gown and I in my tux. Makes us feel like the we're in the midst of the heyday of classical ship travel. To us, that's half the fun of it.

    However, having said all that, I think that we're in the minority.
    There are quite a few people who are not so strict. Nice dinner dresses for the ladies and suits for the guys.

    You will find that most of the guests make a bit of effort to dress smart on the formal evenings.
    Many [like myself] give my tuxedo an airing, whilst many of the other gents at least don a jacket, usually with a nice shirt and tie.
    It`s also a good occasion for the ladies to dig out their posh frocks!

    It was so nice to see my husband all decked out in a tux! He was so handsome! Formal night was one of my favorite nights!

    You can rent tuxedos through DCL . The rental company will deliver it to the ship . Your steward will place it in your closet and pick up after formal and semi formal is over . You get two shirts . Jim wore his twice and it was cheap $89.00 plus tax .
    This time around Jim is taking his Giorgio Armani suit with two shirts . :biggrin:
    I'll search for the link .
