Cruise and Maritime Voyages


Dress Code

Ships have traditional formal, informal, and casual nights. On most evenings, informal attire applies, making ties optional (but not jackets) for men. On casual evenings, passengers can choose what they want to wear. On formal nights, black tie or dinner jackets are suggested for men, cocktail dresses for women. Typical 6- to 15-night cruises have two formal evenings; with longer sailings, expect around 3 to 5 formal nights. Casual nights occur on evenings in port or during special events such as deck parties. The traditional dining rooms require more elegant attire, while casual and comfortable clothing may be worn throughout the day.
