On the six day cruises there are two Cruise Elegant nights. The five day cruises are now just one. :)

Just got back from 5 days on the Fantasy. 1 elegant night and I was pleased to see many people dressed elegant. I chose to go with Tuxedo as my wife suggested that over the Kilt. However I saw 2 other kilts and the singer is Scottish and is waiting for his to be delivered. i would have been in good company in my Full Battle Array.

more on the cruise later.

the last 2 cruises I have been on, it did appear that more people were dressed up then just dressy. Whenever we cruise with 2 elegant nights we are not as formal the 2nd night as the 1st but still dressy.

Welcome Back CruiseDad !! :)

Hope you had a great cruise visiting the daughter and son in law. As you know I have cruised on the Fantasy many times out of Charleston. The same has been my observation as well. People dress quite nicely on Cruise Elegant night. I read all these reports of people wearing unacceptable clothing to the Cruise Elegant Dinner on other ships. I never see that on the Fantasy. People dress up and have photos taken.

We had one Photographer that seemed even better at posing than what we have had before. Actually bought a photo. :rolleyes: He had me lean a little into the portrait. My B&W blended into the balck background with my Tux but the color of the same shot was quite nice. I may even use it in the Family Albumn we are putting up. Unfortunately nearly every photo of my wife had a shine on her face, and not a good one. I think that may be more our makeup problem. Something to learn for next time

Hi Cruise Dad. I used to wear a kilt myself. I served 6 1/2 years in the Canadian Army Reserves - in a Highland Regiment. Our dress uniform was the Standard Canadian Forces Tan (Summer) or Green (Winter) Dress Jacket with the Mackenzie tartan kilt. Only the pipes and drums would be dressed in the "Full Highland Battle Array".

Take good care of your kilt and your grandchildren will inherit it. The one I was issued back in 1989 had been in my regiment since 1935.

HI Macmom... there are usually 2 formal night... you will see everything from nice go to church clothes to elegant gowns.... I usually take a nice pair of black slacks, strappy sandles and a few sequins blouses and dress it up with some sparkle.. and that works fine! Enjoy!
