Default Formal night on 3-night Sensation

I'm asking this for a friend of mine who is thinking of booking the Aug. 8th 3-night on the Sensation with her family. Is there a formal night on a 3-night cruise? I don't think so, but wanted to ask the pros.

thanks.

There is one dress up night on every cruise. It is now called elegant night, and is probably on your second evening.

Yes, there is an elegant night. My DH wore kakhis and a nice shirt, no tie. I wore slacks and dressy top. There was a group of college kids who had a lot of fun with it and dressed 70's retro.

As Pete mentioned, it's the second evening, during the overnight in Nassau.

On the 3 day formal on Sensation I believe it was the night in Nassau which is kinda dumb if you ask me. Anyway I guess your question was if there was a formal night and the answer is definitely Yes. However my observation is that the 3 dayers usually are more flexible with the dress code than normal.

Definately NO.

As Mrpete already pointed out in post 2, there is a dress up night and its now called elegant now.

Formal nights were eliminated fleetwide 2 years ago.feel free to check the CCL website for the new dress codes.

Check the CCL website for the full new code.Even dress shorts are allowed in the dining rooms every night except for an elegant night.All I wear on an elegant night is a golf shirt and pants.

Yes, formal night is the night you are ported in Nassau. We ate at the buffet that night, as we packed light for the trip.

Elegant night (or Formal Night as some still call it) was on the 2nd night of the cruise--the day we were in Freeport.

Same as adults. Dress shirt, pants and shoes, with a suggestion of a jacket.

DD, a nice dress.
