Every day the Daily Programme suggests, as a guide, a mode of dress for that particular evening's events. There are generally two 'formal' or gala nights planned on each cruise of six nights or longer when many gentlemen wear a dinner jacket, although a lounge suit is quite acceptable. The ladies on these occasions have a chance to dress up and often opt for evening or cocktail dresses.
On evenings proposed as 'informal', a suit or smart jacket and trousers, with or without a tie, for the men is suggested and the ladies have further opportunities to look elegant in cocktail dresses or trouser suits.
A 'casual' recommendation often covers evenings spent in port or when a special event such as a deck party is scheduled.
During the day, attitudes are very relaxed and informality is key. Casual clothing is quite sufficient during the days at sea and for time spent ashore.
