Smart Attire in PG

Recommended Posts

Crossing on QM2 shortly. Wondering if passengers are adopting the new smart attire code outside of gala nights. In Princess Grill, are men wearing full suits for these evenings or rather sports jackets/trousers as now shown on Cunard’s site. I’m totally ok with either. Just want to fit in. ;-)

Sports jackets or blazers or linen jackets are perfectly acceptable. Very few suits will be worn.

Even in QG! where we will be again in a few weeks on QM2. 50% will also wear ties.

 

Gala nights 90% tux's with the rest in dark suits.

 

This will be our 18th time in QG so we're starting to get the hang of it :-)

Sorry. One more clarification. On smart attire night in Princess Grill, would a sports jacket, khakis and nice shirt do? Thanks!

Few days ago in Queens grill a party of six, one man wearing a jacket with a cartoon tie loosely around his neck, other 2 men in open necked shirts without jackets. This was a formal night. Sorry, “gala night”, whatever that is. So I don’t think you need to worry about dress codes any more.

Sorry, correction, it was in the commodore club, but the dress code should apply there as well. They were served without any problems, and the commodore club was almost full.

This is of course a real shame, but I'm not sure it's related to the changes in dress-code terminology recently. My experience on the QM2, QE and QV is that most staff, particularly at busy times, will turn a blind eye to dress-code transgressions, but upon request will happily remind guests of expectations.

As far as I am aware, all guests, have the same evening dress code in the Britannia Restaurant, Britannia Club and the Grills restaurant. Smart casual means only jacket mandatory for men. Ties required on formal nights. Enforcement is another matter.

Very few suits worn, but coats or sport coats are a very good idea. Looks good, fits dress code and comfortable with the air-con.

I would slightly disagree with this - suits are in the minority, but on our last four trips in PG/QG quite a few pax have been in suits on informal evenings. I agree with the air-con blazers are sometimes more comfortable though. I also bring several linen suits on board for this reason.

I will always wear a suit on Smart Attire (Informal) evenings irrespective of whatever restaurant I am in.

Pretty big correction.

 

Just got off QM2 on Princess Grill and I saw every male wearing at least a sport jacket on casual nights, most including ties and the large majority wearing formal wear on gala nights.

 

Very glad Cunard has not joined the mass market crowd in slumming down evening dress requirements.
