I will be cruising in the Caribbean for 7 nights in November. How many formal nights (or "elegant evenings") will there be? What is the dress code for the formal nights? I'm hoping not to lug 2 suits for my husband and son, but rather they go in dress pants, shirt and tie. Will I be ok in a short dress or do I need a gown?
Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas 10/03 Western Caribbean
Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas 1/06 Eastern Caribbean
Norwegian Dawn 2/09 Eastern Caribbean
Carnival Conquest 11/11 Western Caribbean
7 day sailings have 2 formal nights DH wears a suit, & I always wear a gown, but a short formal dress will be just fine! Have a great time!!!

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Wear whatever you are comfortable in. My husband and sons don't take suits anymore. They just wear shirt, tie & slacks. I wear nice sundress. You'll see everything. We were on Conquest in May and not one bit underdressed....
