I have never sailed on Cunard but I have booked a T/A in Oct. for 2019. I went to my documents to see what the dress code is. It's still showing the same dress code that was showing in Oct. So my question is, what is the new dress code and where can I find it. I'm a bit confused now on the dress code. Thanks for any info you can offer.
The dress code can be found several places, each with somewhat different wording. Within your voyage personliser, the dress code can be found under "Dining", "What to Wear" and also under "Preparing to Go", "Packing for Your Holiday".
On the main Cunard web site itself, information about the dress code can be found here under "The Cunard Experience", "What to Pack".
The dress code is also explained in at least three different places on the Cunard UK FAQ for these questions.
Is there a dress code on board?
What will the dress code be whilst I am on board?
Does the dress code apply to all areas of the ship?
But since it looks like you are in the US, you don't have access to the Cunard UK FAQ site without resulting to tricks to make it look like you reside in the UK. Most of this has been posted here before, but since you asked and you probably don't have access to it, here is the full answer to the question "Is there a dress code on board?" from the Cunard UK FAQ which contains some details not readily available in the US.
Q. Is there a dress code on board?
During the day, feel free to relax and dress as you please in all areas of the ship. Then as the sun goes down, the style goes up. Every night on board, we ask that you wear smart attire in most of our bars, restaurants and entertainment venues. On our much-anticipated Gala evenings, we invite you to dress to impress and celebrate with us. There are two or three of these special Gala evenings for every seven days of your voyage.
Of course, if you prefer to spend your evenings in more relaxed attire, a selection of casual dining and entertainment venues is always available for your enjoyment.
A full break down of dress codes, the number of Gala nights and any themed balls can be viewed via the following question with the suggested attire for each type of evening: What will the dress code be whilst I am on board?
During the day
Casual shirts, shorts, trousers and beachwear are ideal. The main restaurants require a casual wear dress code for breakfast and lunch, however you may wear shorts in either the Kings Court (Queen Mary 2) or Lido Restaurant (Queen Victoria & Queen Elizabeth).
Evenings will be split into 2 different dress codes. You will be notified of the evening's dress code in your Daily Programme. As a guide, these will be:
On Gala nights it’s dinner jacket, tuxedo, or dark suit for the men with a regular tie or bow tie. Evening or cocktail dress, smart trouser suit, or formal separates for the ladies please.
Gentlemen, every night we request you wear smart trousers with a shirt and jacket; tie is optional. Ladies, blouses and skirts or stylish trousers and dresses are welcome.
For those who want some further help and guidance, or wish to view some examples of evening and day wear, please visit our What To Pack
page on our website.
Please note that after 6:00pm, shorts and blue or worn denim (for men and women); sandals and sleeveless tops (for men) are not considered appropriate within the ship.
Of course, if you prefer to spend your evenings in more relaxed attire, a selection of casual dining and entertainment venues is always available for your enjoyment. Feel free to dress casually as you visit any of the following venues: Kings Court, Lido Buffet, Golden Lion, Casino, Carinthia Lounge, Winter Garden, Garden Lounge, Yacht Club, and G32. Non-ripped, jeans are appropriate, but please refrain from wearing shorts, sports attire, swim wear or sleeveless t-shirts outside of the gym, spa and deck spaces.
Children under 18 do not have a dress code but should adhere to the daily dress code where possible.
National and Religious dress including headdress' are allowed on board. Depending on the amount of the face covered by the headdress, guests may be asked to unveil for a security photo at check in and passing through security check points ashore and on board during the voyage.
Some items of national dress such as ceremonial blades or swords are not permitted and guests should check our list of prohibited items under the question What am I not allowed to take on board?
