During the day casual clothing is typical, although shorts and swimwear are not permitted in the restaurants. Formal Night gets a modern luxury reboot. Say goodbye to Formal Night, and hello to Evening Chic. It’s your time to shine – your way. Get glamorous. Get chic. Be sophisticated. While dressier than Smart Casual, Evening Chic is intended to be less dressy than Formal attire. Evening Chic means that you can get glamorous and be sophisticated in your own way. If you would like to still wear a tuxedo or formal gown on Evening Chic nights, you absolutely should. The self service restaurants are casual.
About a third of people on the cruise travel alone. We will match people up in twin-share cabins when available – saving you the single supplement. You won’t be left alone; the Travelrite tour manager will be looking after you. There will be group activities almost every day.
The cruise is fully escorted and will be a great fun holiday with plenty of activities. Each evening dine with the group at our reserved tables. You will meet a fun group of people and have a fabulous time.p>
