My partner and I are booked on the Brilliance of the Seas in October and are looking forward to our first cruise. I notice that there are usually two or more formal nights where dress tends to be Tuxedos. We are not the tuxedo type-but can anyone confirm that just an ordinary suit would be acceptable (not black or dark blue though). We dont want to feel out of place. The alternative is not to eat in the Main Dining room on those nights I suppose- what is the dress requirement in the specialty restuarants. Any help appreciated.

A second posting.

Anyone have any comments - good or bad about the Brilliance cruise starting in Barcelona or tips.

Thanks

Mike,
Although the majority of the men will be in dark suits or tuxedos, as long as you are wearing a suit and tie you will be fine and should feel quite comfortable eating in the main dining room.

For tips about embarking from Barcelona, you might want to check out the information we have on PortReviews.

The Brilliance is a beautiful ship - you are going to love her!!!

Whatever you do, make sure you have dinner on the formal nights in the dinning room. Thats the days they serve the best of the best meals. I have seen guys in plain suits or dressed to the hilt. So either way go for it!

I have to agree. The way men are dressed on formal night says more about themselves than it does about the cruise, or other passengers. Dress the way you want and don't feel bad if it doesn't conform to the way others dress.
