Formal nights - something to look forward to or a nuisance?

Jump to last reply

What do people really think about formal nights? Are they something to look forward to, and take your best outfits to wear? It means carrying extra clothing which may only be worn once or twice. Or are they a nuisance, particularly if you are travelling light and trying to keep your luggage to a minimum.
We've done several cruises, some on the other side of the world from home. We don't want to take formal outfits which could easily fill another suitcase. For women it's a bit easier - a bit of bling here and there, and you can pass your outfit as formal. For men, it means taking shirts and ties and jackets etc. - all extra weight. I know we can eat in the buffet on formal nights but why should we be made to feel second-class passengers when we've paid as much as any one else on the ship.
What do other people think?
