Reading these dress issue threads with interest. I've never sailed on the QM2, would like to but I don't do dresses. I had a scary incident with a long skirt, fortunately there were 2 big guys on the stairway ahead of me, they caught me. I wear a dressy pants suit, or my sparkly tops, I know these aren't formal as I've done the formal routine.
I've been cruising 35 years. I've worn long dresses, now I try to fit everything in my 26" suitcase. Princess is my go to cruise line. I just returned from a 30 day So. America cruise with 1 suitcase.
Sorry for long story, I am looking at the Nov. 3, 2019 TA on QM2. Sailing single, I would not like paying for an evening meal because I'm not dressed properly. When you pay extra to sail single, it should include food.
I saw the other thread about the change in dress code, but I don't want to add fuel to the fire.
Hello susancruzs, there is nothing wrong ( on Cunard) with your 'dressy pants suit and a nice sparkly top', finished off with good accessories ! ( evening shoes and evening bag... and perhaps a nice evening pashmina) ..."By the way this is coming from a guy who is posting" !
Far too many females fret over the Cunard formal dress code ! (In well over 55 Cunard cruises/voyages) Almost every lady I've seen onboard Cunard make their evenings a sense of occasion ! (whether it's a formal evening or not) Unfortunately, it's often the 'guys' who tend to let the side down, the jacket dodgers and those guys who can't be bothered to make an effort to 'support their ladies'.
