One 'cruise elegant' night on a 5-night cruise is correct. Daily schedules for specific cruises are not available prior to a cruise.

We have decided to stop doing formal night when we fly.. Its not worth $50.00 roundtrip on a plane to dress up a couple of hours..

Not understand which comment?

For mine, Carnival does not use the term 'formal night' anymore. It is either 'cruise elegant' or 'cruise casual' with relaxed requirements. Cruise Elegant means slacks and a dress shirt (no tie or jacket) is officially acceptable. Cruise Casual even allows shorts to be worn at dinner.

What Tim C is referring to is paying the airline luggage fees for carting extra clothes along for those 'cruise elegant' nights. Lots of people cruise these days with just the stuff they can fit in their carry-on luggage.

We love FORMAL night and can't wait to get nice and dress up for this events. We will not go on any cruise lines that are cutting back on these wonderful nights. You can't put all of your stuff in a carry-on. We alway have 4 suitcases on every cruise. We take one empty one for stuff that we buy at the ports and on the ship. Our airlines only charge for one bag and the second one per person is free. We wish that more people get dress up. We miss the good old days when our parents would get dress up just to go out for an evening on the town. We dress up once or twice a week to go out.

Gang,

As much as my wife and I enjoy formal nights, I am afraid that they are going the way of the Dodo bird.

That being said, there are still many folks who get all dressed up and I have never felt out of place with a jacket and tie on the cruise elegant nights. The interesting thing is that I am the most informal guy I know and you will usually find me wearing a pair of jogging shorts and a T-shirt that I got for free when I am not at work. However, there is something about being on a cruise that makes me want to dress up a bit, plus my wife really enjoys it too!

Anyway, take care and have a great trip!

Brad
