As a passenger it would be useful to know how many, and what kind of theme nights are to held on each cruise. As there are now four possible themes you could end up carrying clothes that are not required. [and not carrying clothes that are!] Guidelines in the ship's Daily Times are far too late to ensure you have what you need with you.
To give our guests an indication of our dress code this information can always be found on our website. Please follow the provided link where you will find and extensive A-Z guide of cruising with Fred. Olsen,

We are traveling to Rio to join Balmoral 7 march 2112 for the journey back to dear old Blighty and we have already been given the info for the 4 Formal evenings and also the 3 themed evenings ( international, Rock and Roll and tropical). Looks like the Western themed night has gone for a burton. Like others have already said, not all passengers take part in the actual dressing up but still enjoy the atmosphere. Others on this forum have mentioned they might be too young for FO but you are as old as you feel and my wife and I have many retained younger friends met on FO who we still keep in touch with after many years We have done one trip on Balmoral to Tangiers which ended up in Antwerp instead and I reckon the older end just took in their stride. Force nine and a bit windy.. Locked indoors for three days
