Just a little question. What is the dress code for the Mauretania Restaurant for casual and informal nights? Having cruised on QE2 transatlantic in 2002 most nights were formal.

Started packing for the fjords cruise departing on Saturday. :-)

Even on informal nights people dress smart. A sport coat with nice pants. Always a buttoned shirt and tie.

Wish I was going. Almost six months since my last QE2 cruise and don't know if I'll ever sail again on her since she is not coming to the US anymore and I don't fly. Stuck with QM2.
Let us know how your trip goes

Bon Voyage.

Experiences might vary. Mine is as follows:
Informal: Minimum requirement: jacket, shirt, tie. Many men: dark suit
Casual: Minimum: Slacks and dress shirt. Many men: light-coloured suit or sport jacket with tie.

I've worn sports jacket w/ tie even on casual nights.

A nice shirt, (Polo shirt, or dress shirt) with casual trousers will be suitable. Just wear what you wish,and be comfortable in it.

I like the thinking here: smart dress for men.

Formal nights, black tie.

Informal nights, suit and tie.

Casual nights, sportcoat and tie.

"Always dress better than you have to" never hurts anywhere.

I agree w/ ab ovo. People still get dressed up, even though it's a "casual" night. But then, that's part of the fun and allure of being on the QE2. So jump right in with your really nice clothes, and have a blast!! There's plenty of time to be casual when you're home. :)

Thank you! :-)

What you said was more or less in line with what I anticipated. So back to packing again :-)))

I also say dress it up as much as possible. The whole trip is a special occassion, so you might as well make the most of it. Also, although I was basically quite pleased with the Maretania dining room, once in a while a meal was not so great. At those times it was nice to have an extra glass of wine and enjoy the ambience...
