euroguy Posted May 14 Share Posted May 14 The question is are or should eligant night still exist and are they fadi g away? I for one on my last cruise did as usual for every previous cruise packed my Tux and my $1000 black suit for formal nights. I'm use to seeing g gents dressed in tuxes and lady's dressed to the 9's with wonderful gowns or sparkly coctsil dresses. Much to my surprise on this last cruise I only saw 1 other Tux, some ill fitted suits that clearly they didn't feel comfortable in and mostly slacks and dress shirts for the guys. The woman a few had nice dresses but no true gowns or sparkle cocktail dresses, mostly sun dresses. I will say that I certainly received many compliments, few winks and couple nudges from age rang of mid 20's to 60's, which tell me women still appreciate a well dressed man 😆 I even had one walk across the dinning room and said " I couldn't help notice you when you walked in and wanted to tell you how amazing g you look" she was in her 30's. Keep in mind I'm in my mid 50's... needless to say I blushed and had a big smile on my face and all my table mates gazed with shock 🤣 I for one think the tradition of formal attire for dinner that has been directly linked to cruises stems from a bygone era that represents a since of ones status and self pride. I have always looked forward to formal nights as you can truly dress up and actually have someplace to go. Perhaps I'm just old school but I think it should remain and be more emphasized by the cruise line. What do you think??? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
