I am so glad I found this forum so I can ask my million and one questions about our upcoming cruise! We will be sailing on the Grand in Feb. My question (first of many I am sure) is about the dress at dinner. I am aware that 2 nights will be formal. I was wondering if my dear husband will be out of place if he does not show up in a tux? Do men come in their dark suits or do most have tuxes? If he really needs a tux, is renting from the ship the easiest thing to do?
Then for the remaining 5 nights that they call "dressy" - what does that mean exactly? Is 'business casual' okay for this - meaning for the men khakis and a polo shirt or does dh need to wear a tie every night? Sport coat with a tie? For myself, I was planning on taking mostly pants with nice jackets. Sound OK? Or do I really need dresses?
Sorry to be so full of questions but of course dh has not given a single thought to this and I will be required to recommend to him what he should pack.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
