DH and I were on the AMAViola two weeks ago. First River Cruise!
I wore black Chico's Traveler's slacks every evening and paired with a different top, jacket, dressy sweater, etc. For the Captain's Dinner
(we dined with a group in the "special" dining room) I wore a different pair of Traveler's, along with a black & gold, slightly sparkly, tunic. Most dressed up a bit. We saw anything from the bicycler's attire ( large group of Backroads on our cruise), to shorts, to a long dress or two. For the the Chef's Table, I wore my black Traveler's with a dressy tank and flowy (is there such a word?) black sweater jacket.
The Captain's Welcome,
which is the first night, is very casual. Some people did not have their luggage. Others did not have time to unpack. While others were in a their cycling gear.
We managed to shower and change into something other than our travel clothes.
Bottom line is that DH and I felt good with what we wore each evening.
DH did not take a jacket. He wore either a Polo, dress shirt, or sweater along with dress pants every evening. We did see a couple of men in jackets or suits, but most wore golf shirts to dinner. Some in Tee's.
Should we try the River Cruising again, the items that I will not pack again are a bathing suit and cover-up. We had mostly rain and some cool weather after the first day or two. Plus, there really is no time to relax up on the deck. We did sit up there a time or two wrapped in blankets while watching the scenery.
Have a great trip and cruise!
