Can anyone tell me about the Captain's Dinner on the ship Holiday? I'm just wondering how "dressed up" we need to be. My husband really isn't excited about taking a suit on a cruise. What else would be OK for him? Thanks for all your help

This is a suggestion I give to all my clients as to how dressy you need to be on a cruise for dinner:

Check with your Cruise Specialist or the Cruise line for what type of dinner attire is expected while dining in the main dining room. Formal night: wear what you would wear to an awards banquet, high school prom, or very ritzy restaurant. Semi-formal night: wear what you would wear to a nice restaurant for Easter brunch, or to celebrate your promotion at work. Casual night: you are taking your wife and kids to dinner at Outback, Bennigan's, or Steak and Ale. The first night people will often wear what they traveled to the ship in, especially if they are still waiting for the luggage to get to their cabin

Like your husband I do not like a tie and suit but found that it was fun on formal nights. Most of the men had on a suit many had a tux. There were a few, very few, that wore and open collar shirt. They stuck out like sore thumbs. So bite the bullet and take a suit. It will be lots of fun and unbotton the collar right after dinner. Enjoy your cruise

We were on the Holiday in Feb 2005, and saw everything from shorts and t-shirts,totuxedos inn the dining room for dinner!!! As far as the Captain's dinner, it seemed to be a little more dressy. Can't remember seeing anyone with out a shirt and tie. Don't forget to ask for a beer if you want one, they will accomodate you. I'm not a rum drinker, and it seemed like most of the free drinks were made with rum. Happy sailing!!!
