Smile Liberty of the Seas, Formal Night?!

New to posting.. but DH and I are taking a RCI cruise in April on the Liberty.. I was wondering if this dress would be TOO MUCH for formal night.. I am not one to look for opportunities to stand out, so I guess I would like to know if i would look out of place for formal night wearing this dress. Also, if this dress is okay should my hubby wear a suit or tux??

I LOVE the dress! MANY people will be wearing tuxes and gowns. I think it'll be perfect. You won't stand out...and who cares if you do? It's your vacation! I say go for it! For one of our formal nights, this is the BCBG Max Azria dress I'll be wearing...luckily Fergie has the same dress so I see photos of it ALL the time, haha!

You absolutely will stand out in the dress, but in a good way, it's gorgeous! I'd say 1/2 of the crowd are older and will be wearing mother of the bride kinda stuff, most of us will be in the typical Black Cocktail dress and say 10-15% will be in something so great as that!!

Enjoy your cruise, make sure you have pictures taken with your spouse, either by the ship photographers or a fellow cruiser!

From what I understand, formal nights on Liberty are so much different that formal nights on the other ships. I'm not sure if your choices will work.

What, exactly, do you mean by "so much different?" I'm on the Liberty in April and am wondering what makes the Liberty different from every other ship?
Thanks!

My point, sarcastically is that there is NO difference in formal nights on any ship really. I just find it comical that some people make their questions ship specific when it reality, it's just not that way.

For example, there's no difference in laundry pricing whether you're on Liberty or Voyager or Vision.

Pet peeve. Sorry.

Considering the OP is a first time cruiser (as am I), how are we supposed to know all that?

Take your pet peeves up with more 'seasoned' veterans like yourself, thanks. Or just don't waste your time replying next time.

Hope you take your same advice. However, if you are to cruise on Oasis or Allure, the ante goes way up on formal nights.

That's because some broads on the Liberty wear Lucite stripper shoes on formal nights.

my dh wants to get away with just wearing a dress shirt & tie and khakies I said I dont think you can get away with that. since you cannot pack like you use to because of the "AIRLINES" we might skip formal night.

That dress is gorgeous! I'd wear it without a doubt. My OH doesn't do tuxes (They are not that big over here in the UK) but he does wear a rather nice (And expensive) suit with a nice shirt and tie. If your OH feels more comfortable in a normal suit with a shirt and tie over a tux then tell him to go for that. No matter which option he chooses he will look just as nice as you will in that dress.

Make sure you have your photo taken on board and buy it! Believe me, it will look great on your mantalpiece

That's exactly why formal nights on Liberty are so different!
