Unusual Post??!! Would Love To See Pics Of Your "formal" Night Dress!!!


Recommended Posts

OK, I'll just have to contribute here. I know that the OP was asking about women's clothing, but she doesn't specifically say women only. So..... here I am in my formal clothes:




The "R" in my member name is for Robertson. That is my Clan's tartan in my kilt.

This is one dress I'll wear on our formal night. We sail on HAL Zuiderdam tomorrow! I picked this up at Dillards on sale for way less than the listed price.




Here is the formal outfit I wore on RCI Enchantment of the Seas in November. I'm on the right and the MIL is on the left.




This was from our honeymoon cruise on Carnival - it's not a great shot but you get the idea.




Our first HAL cruise on the Zaandam. Here's a picture of my MIL & FIL.




Here is what I wore on HAL Zaandam cruise. It's floor length fully beaded evening gown.






The back of my other dress




and the front. It's a A-line black satin with silver embroidered flowers and black accent beeds.




HAL was the most formal and Carnival the most relaxed. RCI fell in between the two. I enjoyed them all for different reasons.


BTW - I purchased the same dress as the OP is wearing but with turquoise trim. I'm wearing it for informal night.

I loved all of your pictures. It looks like fun was had by all! I would like to know where the "rock wall" in the water was at. We will be going to the Western Caribbean in June. I am taking my adult childred, their spouses and my grandchildren. It looks like something they would all love to do. Also, the trampoline in the water. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here are two of mine from the Diamond Princess in March 2005...please forgive the not-so-great pics, but at least it will give you an idea of our dresses...

Basically - wear something nice that you also feel comfortable wearing. No point in wearing something fancy if it itches, is too tight, or otherwise doesn't make you feel good wearing it!


For our 1st cruise, we sailed with my theatre grouP & most of the men had tuxes for the shows & concerts we had done, so my BF got into the spirit of the thing borrowed an extra tux & looked so awesome! Of course, most of us ladies had glittery formal dresses & gowns that we had worn on stage & in concerts, too!


2nd time around we cruised with family & they were very leery about "formal nights". My BF's mom & I "dressed up", but my sisters just wore black dress pants & sparkly tops on formal nights. My BF actually forgot his suit :eek: & we bought a last minute sport jacket, dress shirt & tie in Fla. the night before we sailed (God bless Dillard's & flying in the day before the cruise!), which he wore with khakis. My BIL wore a sport coat, khaki's & a dark-colored t-shirt. (He wasn't coming on the cruise at all if he "had" to wear a suit!)


And we all looked fine & had a grand time - which was the point of it all!
