Default White Party

I have seen mentioned that some of the cruises have a white party one night. I see nothing about this on the RC site. We're on LOS out of Barcelona on 8/4/12. Does anyone know if this might be happening? And if so, what does it mean? Thanks!

I've never seen one on a Royal ship.

A white party is a party where everyone wears white and dances. What makes them neat is the lighting in the clubs makes everyone look like they are glowing blue/purple.

On the last 2 RCI med cruises I've been on, the pool party was a white party. My SIL just got back from a cruise on AOS last month and they had a white party one evening too.

They usually have them on Med cruises. Everyone dresses in white and there's a party on deck - great fun

I was on Allure last July and they had a white party in the Solarium. I am from South Florida and it was very similar to any white party i've ever seen in the Miami area. Bright lights, dancers, they removed most of the furniture and replaced with some white couches and modern decorations, DJ who played mostly techno, put a bar in the middle of the solarium. It seemed much more geared to the younger people.

Edit: We took the Western Caribbean route on the allure.

Have had a white party on all our Liberty sailings out of Barcelona in 2011 and 2012. There is also one held on Mariner apparently so looking froward to it on our upcoming sailing.

On European itineraries there is often a "white dress" evening. On our cruise it was, fittingly, the day we were in Santorini, Greece. You can wear white clothing to dinner and for the rest of the evening if you want to (not everyone participated, so if you choose not to dress in white, you will not be the only ones!). The vendors know when the cruise ships have their white night because they put out racks of clothing and it is usually snatched up pretty quickly!

Enjoy your cruise.

Perhaps a signature on NCL but not exclusive to that line, anymore than the Quest is exclusive to RCI. If certain activities prove to be very popular with passengers, you can pretty much count on other lines copying them. Years ago, RCI's "If I were not upon the sea" was transformed into Princess' "If I were not upon the ship" - I know the rhyming stunk but the basic premise of the skit remained the same. There really is nothing new under the sun.

We had a white party on the pool deck about 11pm on the Mariner last June. It looked good with everyone in white.
I knew nothing about them having these evenings so I didn't have anything.
Beware that they might do a 70's night!

Default White party

I read a review a week or so ago that a lovely lady from New Jersey did with 2 friends (I think it was all 3 of their birthdays). Don't remember what cruise it was on; but, it really did look like a lot of fun and her pictures were great.

There was a white party on the Liberty in March. Photos are in my review in my signature. There were music and refreshments on the pool deck late in the evening, then an adults-only party in the Catacombs (dance club) for the rest of the night. A lot of fun
