Hey everyone, my son, who is 24, and I will be sailing on the Conquest December 14th and he is trying to figure out what to wear for the two Elegant Night dinners. One of NCO's told him he should just wear his Army Dress Blues since he doesn't own a suit other than that one and not to waste the money to buy one. At 6'8 there really isn't such a thing as a cheap suit lol. However, he's worried he will strange or stick out if he wears it. For those of you have cruised a bit or are/were in the Army, or any branch of the military, what are your thoughts on him wearing his Dress Blues? Have you ever really noticed anyone in their military dress uniform? Thank you in advance for your thoughts. 

 

He will stick out alright, as a hero. Thanks be to him and all that have served.

Tell your son to wear the uniform with pride.  Although the ship may be foreign flagged, the passengers with be primarily US citizens, sailing from and to a US port.  And please, thank him for his service for me.  And thank you for raising a young man who serves.

I have worn both my service dress and mess dress uniforms to formal night.   You do get a lot of attention- all positive.
