Dress Codes

Casual wear is appropriate for daytime onboard or ashore, and consists of resort-style outfits. Casual wear, including shorts and jeans, is not considered appropriate after 6:00 p.m. Evening dress codes may be found on the Itinerary tab of the individual voyages.

Evening dress code falls into two categories. Elegant Casual wear includes skirt, or slacks (no jeans) with blouse or sweater, pant suit or dress for ladies; slacks (no jeans) and collared shirt for gentlemen. Sport jackets are optional. While Elegant Casual is always appropriate, during Formal Optional evenings featured on longer cruises, guests may opt for a more formal choice of clothing including gowns and cocktail dresses for ladies; tuxedos, dinner jackets or dark suit with tie for gentlemen.

There is a lot of confusion and worry over "what to wear" I hope this will give you a little insight into the dress codes, and how many optional formal and elegant casual nights you can expect on a cruise and what those dress codes mean for men and women. Many people like to dress up and you will see men wearing a coat and tie every night.

If you do not dress appropriately after 6.00 pm in the evening you will be asked to change your attire.
Shorts, blue jeans, tee shirts, tennis shoes or casual sandals are not appropriate after 6.00pm in the evening.

OPTIONAL FORMAL

MEN: Tuxedos or suit and tie
Some men like to wear tuxedos. Some simply wear a suit and tie. Some wear dinner jackets. Elegant casual is also acceptable.

LADIES: Cocktail dress or pant suit
From ball gowns to sequins to a simple black dress and pant suit to elegant casual - it is all acceptable.

ELEGANT CASUAL

MEN: Open neck shirts and slacks
Tommy Bahama shirts, shirts with collar. Nice slacks. Nice casual wear.

LADIES: Dresses or pant suits
Pant suits, simple dresses, nice tops and slacks. What you wear to a nice local restaurant.

CASUAL - DAY TIME WEAR

MEN: Casual
Shorts, jeans, tennis shoes and casual sandals. Comfortable clothing for sightseeing. No swimming trunks in the dining rooms.

LADIES: Casual
Shorts, jeans, tennis shoes and sandals. No bathing suits in the dining rooms. Of course a lady can wear a cover up and be fine over a bathing suit.

NOT APPROPRIATE AT DINNER

Shorts, blue jeans, tee shirts, tennis shoes or casual sandals.

DAY TIME WEAR

How many Formal and Elegant Casual Nights will there be on my cruise?

Some cruises are all elegantly casual with no formal nights.

Dress codes vary slightly depending on ports of call and areas of the world the following is usually accurate

7 night cruise: One optional formal night, and the rest elegant casual.

10 night cruise: Two optional formal nights and then the rest elegant casual

14 night cruise: Two to three optional formal nights and then the rest elegant casual

21 night cruise: Three to four optional formal nights and then the rest elegant casual

21 plus nights: These will usually be in "segments". Each segment will follow the guidelines above so you can count on one formal night each 7 - 10 days.

When are the Optional Formal Nights?

OPTIONAL FORMAL NIGHT: The optional formal night is usually the second night after sailing. This is the "Welcome Aboard" party. Sometimes the schedule dictates that this is not an appropriate night for the Optional Formal night and then this will be schedule the third night of the sailing. Optional formal could also be the dress for the past passenger party and the Captains Farewell party. Usually a day when you leave port earlier so you have more time to dress.
ELEGANT CASUAL NIGHTS: Any night that is not optional formal.
These are only guidelines as the schedule of the cruise can dictate differently

Elegant Casual - Captains Welcome Aboard

What about the Captains welcome aboard party is that also "Formal Optional"? Yes, some will wear tuxedos, dark suits and tie, and ladies may wear cocktail gowns. Most will wear their nicest attire on these special nights you may also see people in the "Elegant Casual" attire

Our advice on clothing and packing

If you want to dress up then you can certainly take advantage of the cruise to do so. If you prefer to dress more elegant casual then you can feel quite comfortable with this decision. There will be an even mixture of people on board so as long as you stay within the guidelines above there is no need to worry about dress that much. On all the Regent cruises I have taken I have seen a wide variety of clothing and truthfully most people do not remember what you wore anyway.

To ease packing my husband takes one black suit and then wears that same jacket with taupe and beige slacks. Shoes are a space eater and are heavy. I usually take one pair of dress black shoes and if my clothes wont match those I leave that outfit home.

Lugging luggage around is difficult particularly when you are doing pre or post excursions. Luggage gets lost constantly by the airlines. We have lost our luggage eight times in the last three years. I do suggest a small carryon with the necessary items and one change of clothes. The cruise line is wonderful about keeping track of your luggage and if it is lost you usually get it the second afternoon. Right before the optional formal night.

Shipping Luggage

Regent Seven Seas has contracted with Luggage Free, a custom luggage-shipping and -delivery service, to provide the cruise line's guests with door-to-door luggage shipping, avoiding the inconvenience of carrying, checking and claiming luggage - and even going through customs.

Using the service, guests make reservations online. Within 24 hours after their order is placed nationwide (six hours in New York City), Luggage Free sends a representative to the guest's home, wraps each bag in protective covering, and transfers them to the nearest airport. The bags are placed in Luggage Free's forward freight system, and then delivered to the guest's destination via its airborne infrastructure. After the bags land, Luggage Free picks them up at the airport, clearing international shipments through customs. Finally, Luggage Free transfers the bags to their ultimate destination address. The process is reversed for the return trip.

TRIPLE BERTH FARES

The third or fourth adult in any standard suite or penthouse is 50% of the cruise only minimum category fare after any applicable air credit and EBS discount has been applied. Third and fourth berths in named suites will pay the cruise only minimum category fare. Triples and quad passengers do not qualify for free air promotions but may purchase air at the value of the air credit for the sailing. Society and onboard discounts do apply to triples and quads.

CHILDREN

Children are never allowed as a first berth. Children may occupy the second berth on a booking but are not entitled to a discount. Children ages 11 and under in any category pay 50% of the minimum category fare after the air credit has been subtracted. Infants are treated the same as children. Children 12 and over are treated as adults. Onboard and Society discounts do apply to children. Free air promotions do not apply to children berthed in third or fourth berths. Children can purchase air at the value of the air credit plus any published upgrade fares for upgraded classes of service. Special kids pricing exists on select Summer and Spring dates. Special Savings For Kids Because we are limited to the number of triples and quads we can take due to lifeboat capacity, these special prices are capacity controlled and can be removed at any time.

Cribs: The number of cribs onboard is limited and may become sold out at any time. On the MARINER and VOYAGER, cribs are of the standard type but on the NAVIGATOR, they are portable and look more like a playpen. There is padding that is comfortable enough for sleeping. These are often referred to as "Pack and Play" playpens.

SINGLES

Single supplements ranging from 50% to 100% are capacity controlled by sailing as well as category and may be modified at any time. Special rates may be offered on specific sailings.Single Supplement Specials
