SusanMaz, Thanks for the confirmation that Kilts are still in. On a two formal night cruise I wear kilt (Royal Stewart or Winter Battle MacIntyre) and the second night a Tuxedo. And yes about 50% of my suitcase is formal wear, I don't care, It's fun. However for DH, try googling 'Buy a tuxedo cheap', You will find Classic New Tux for less than $100. I bought one. I use it 3 times a year, Cruising, Band Performace at Christmas, and usually 1 other time comes up. It has paid for itself many times over. I think it is a good buy.

I'd post a photo of me at my Daughter's wedding in it but I don't know how
