what about the photos?
I mean with all the photo oportunities you will have during formal night remeber to take a few before going back to your room...
I enjoy the formal night but before changing into a less formal, clothes remember on formal night they give the best meals and a great oportunity to look nice on photos...

Hi BHSE, and a belated welcome to cruise-chat.com!

As others have mentioned, some passengers remain dressed up all evening while others change into more casual attire after dinner. Different cruise lines may have different policies, though. For example, Celebrity suggests that passengers remain in the stated evening's attire for the entire evening in most of the public areas. Royal Caribbean indicates that the dress suggestion is for the dining room only. Of course, on Royal Caribbean, you are free to choose which way you want to go.

As for us, I usually stay in my formal attire after dinner as it means less to pack. I have on many occasions, however, slipped on a pair of more comfortable shoes (sometimes even tennis shoes!).
Happy cruising!

A typical formal evening for us is to head from early dining straight to the show lounge to get seats. I save my wife's seat & she heads back to the room to change & returns so I can do likewise. It's obvious (even on casual evenings) that people like to be comfortable to watch the show. Some even like to dress in shorts but we've found the show rooms to be to cool. If you feel comfortable in a long dress then don't change but if you do, no one will even notice or care.
