Both of those responses are very true. The pictures are reasonably priced and very good. My wife usually wears a gown, but there are PLENTY of ladies in nice pants suit outfits or skirts. Boy...I feel like I'm auditioning for Queer Eye! The reality is that whatever makes you comfortable is ok...after all, it's YOUR vacation. Alot depends on if you're going to get alot of pictures taken and what you wanna look like. But most importantly, be yourself and be comfortable!
Rick...you're going way too fast for me...I can't get em that easy! The cruise lines are a bit hypocritical though...I wore a nice skirt with a halter top and they wouldn't let me in the dining room!! Musta clashed with my beard!
I remember wearing a maroon tie and cummerbund with my tux on the Norwegian Sea several years ago. It happened to be close to the color worn by the dining room staff and at least twice that night I got approached by passengers asking me questions. Rather than go through a big explanation I simply answered the questions and said thank you for cruising with us or something like that.
