And so it goes, we're ending an era of elegant cruising. I loved dressing up for the evening dinner, we so very rarely dress up for anything anymore. It was so wonderful to walk into the dining room, and see such fabulous settings and people looking so wonderful. I'm still going to dress for dinner, though it won't be as "formal" as before. Years and years ago, I had formal gowns for each evening of the cruise. The one 21 day I did on Royal, I had 3 large suitcases to carry my clothes and a 4th one for accessories. With airline regulations now, it would cost more than the cruise to take that many suitcases.
