For our honeymoon we are going on RCC Voyager of the Seas, Sept. 21. I was wondering about the formal nights. The brochures and web-sites say you can rent tuxes. Is this necessary, or would a sport coat, khaki pants, a white shirt and tie do? And what about dresswear for the ladies? One more question - has anyone been to the "honeymooners" night? What kind of attire is needed for that evening? Thank you very much for any and all help I can get.

My husband always wears dress pants, button up shirt, and tie and jacket, but he doesnt mind because thats what he wears to work everyday, except for the jacket. But I must say that a lot of people don't even bother dressing up. We like to though, we think it makes the cruising experience more enjoyable.

ALthough I think the khakis & sport coat would be ok, your husband might feel a bit underdressed. (That dress option is better for the nights that aren't formal or casual - I forget the current term. Used to be called semi-formal.)The usual recommendation for formal night is a dark suit or tux for men, but we got away with a dark sport coat & (almost) matching slacks, shirt & tie. On the other hand, "marvlgrl" is also correct, that many people don't dress up. Depends on how comfortable he'll feel about it. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img]

We just got back from sister company Celebrity Constellation, and while I like to dress up, we thought it was a bit to much, and not planned on the nights it should have been. On Celebrity, dress code of the evening is maintained after 6PM. If your new husband doesn't want to wear a tux, he could wear a dark business suit. He would not have been allowed in the main dining room with Khakki pants, and they would have suggested alternative dining or room service. It was wonderful to go into the shows or casino, and see the gentlemen all dressed up. Kind of reminded me of the casino in MOnte Carlo. Renting on the ship is pretty expensive. How about just keeping the tux from the wedding and getting another shirt. A lot of formal wear companies will rent cruise packages far cheaper than you can get on the ship.

It seems as if more men wear a dark suit instead of a tux. The other alternative is not to eat in the dining room that night. The problem with the formal nights is all the extra clothing that has to be packed. Getting dressed up does seem to make the evening a little more special and it may add to the dining experience; but a tux is not required.

Would estimate that at least 85-90% of the men had tux's, on the Constellation, and not the dark suits as mentioned in the previous comment. Did you check out just taking the wedding tux along? Think that would be the way to go.
