Default formal dress

Does anyone know how many formal/semi-formal/casual nights to expect on my cruise? We set sail aboard the Brilliance of the Seas March29/04 for an 11 night cruise and I would like to know what type of clothes to bring (and how much) for the various types of nights.

Default Re: formal dress

dee on an 11 nighter you will probably have 3 formal nights, 2 semi-formal nights and the rest will be casual. Formal is something that you would wear to an evening wedding at a country club or a fancy resort hotel back home, a dressy cocktail dress, long dress, long skirt with a silk or sparkly top or a dressy dinner suit all with heels are fine for ladies. For men Formal is a dark suit, dress shirt, tie & dress shoes or a tux. Dark suit separates are fine as well.
Semi-Formal is something you would wear to a daytime wedding at a resort , fancy hotel or country club. Your basic little black dress would be perfect or a nice suit, dress pant with a dressy blouse, or a nice dress with heels for the ladies. For the men it means a blazer, dress pants, dress shirt & tie, dress shoes.
Casual/informal - something you would wear to a nice restaurant for dinner at home. No Jeans& t-shirts. Dockers or cargo pants with a polo, button-down sport shirt or hawaiian print shirt, nice shoes for the men. Dockers type pants with a nice blouse and sandals, capris with a nice blouse, sundress with sandals or a nice skirt & blouse with sandals is fine for the ladies.
