If you already own a suit, it is appropriate on formal night, but don't buy one just for this dinner. We cruised in January on Conquest, and my 2 brothers in law don't own suits, they just wore dress pants, shirts and ties and they weren't out of place as you will see all manner of dress on those nights. Dockers and polo/shirts are appropriate also. Oh yes, and of course shoes are mandatory!

Have a great time - we actually might be done with rain here in Houston for a while! Weather should be great for sail away.

I also cruised on the Conquest in January.
Did not have a suite or a tie, but I wore my nice polo and dress pants, and it was just fine.

Have a great cruise You will enjoy the Conquest very much!! Anyway I am assuming that is your ship

Don't worry too much about it. The dress on the ships leaving from Texas seem to be more casual than other ports. Like the other said, you don't need a suit. If you are OK with not being in a suit while others are, then that's ok. Its about getting as dressed up as you want to be. Some people go the Tuxedo route others just do a nive shirt and slacks.

If you think you would want to dress up a little, then go get a suit. It doesn't have to be designer made. Get something you would wear again. But if this is the only time you think you would wear a suit, then don't go out and buy one just for the cruise. Just bring a tie and a nice shirt and you will be fine.

They are not picky about the suits. I saw several people in slacks and golf shirts and they were allowed in the dinning room.

Carnival, they don't have the fashion police strictly enforcing a dress code like a military uniform inspection. Not by a long shot. Pretty much if you wear a suit, any suit, on formal night, it will be allright. (Unless it is your "Birthday Suit" )
