Celebrity Cruises Dress Code

Hi guys

How strict are Celebrity Cruises when it comes to their dress code policy.

We are booked to go on a Celebrity cruise for 12 nights in August and wondered if anyone could advise me on the dress code in the main restaurant.

Would my partner get away with wearing casual trousers and a shirt or does it have to be a jacket every night.

Also if we choose to attend the formal night would he have to wear a dinner jacket or would a light linen jacket be ok.

We are a bit concerned as our luggage allowance is only 20kg, which is not a lot for 12 nights.

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Lindyloos

We were on the Celebrity Equinox in June this year. I noticed that the formal nights weren't as 'formal' as I thought they were going to be. Most men opted for trousers or smart chinos and shirts, some men had a jacket on and only a handful or so of the men had tuxedos on. I personally think it's nice to dress up, but I'm sure your partner will be fine with the light linen jacket option. Enjoy... Celebrity are great ships !!

I agree with Jodes' experiences. We too were on Equinox and will be on Eclipse next month ex-Southampton. My attire for the formal night is exactly that,light trousers,linen jacket,short sleeved collared shirt and tie ie comfortable.

Your weight limit can only be because you are on a fly cruise as effectively the cruise line have no limit if it is liftable.I agree 20kgs each is not enough for 12 nights especially for a lady. You could pay the airline's substantial charge in advance for excess baggage.

Thanks for responses it's good to hear from people who have recently cruised with Celebrity.

We are on the Equinox as well so any other tips/advice you can offer would be greatly accepted.

Looks like we might have to pay for extra luggage allowance on the flight as my shoes alone will take up most of the 20kg ha ha !!

Thank you,

It used to be that a tux was the norm for formal nights. We just got back from an Alaskin cruse with Celebrity and a tux was overkill. There were guys in tee shirts, jeans and a windbreaker. The dress code has changed in the last several years.

Stick with a light weight sport coat or suit and you will be fine. The tie would be optional with the right shirt.

On the 'formal' night i wore a nice black dress with wrap, as did a lot of ladies or long dresses, my husband just wore smart black trousers and a shirt and tie, only seen a handfull of men wearing jackets, its really up to you.

The rest of the time we just wore what you would on a nice night out.
