For those of you who have traveled on Uniworld, did your men take jackets for the special nights? DH would love to get away with it, but will go along if that seems to be the norm for this particular line.
Just got off Uniworld SS Antoinette yesterday - men did wear jackets on several nights (especially the second and last night of the cruise and for the special gourmet dinners in L'Orangerie) and a few even wore ties! Someone had claimed earlier that on 30 river cruises she had never seen a man with a jacket on a river cruise - that is not true on Uniworld. Some women wore cocktail dresses and heels for the special nights.
As to changing for dinner - yes, everyone did, every night - primarily because we either got rained on or sweaty while touring but also because dinner was just a bit more dressy.
However, I want to caution you to pack lightly so you will have plenty of room for souveniers!
