I'll be sailing on the Golden Princess in August to Alaska. I've heard that Alaskan cruises are more casual due to the nature of the port activities. What do people wear to dinner in the dining room on non formal nights? Also, are formal nights as formal as they are on Caribbean cruises?
Attire on Alaskan Cruises
I like that Princess is a kind of middle ground in how to dress. I had a little of everything on my first Princess to Alaska, so most of it went unworn. But we did get dressed up for formal night. I had a long black skirt and very sparkly beaded top. There were men in nice suits, not just long sleeved shirt with a tie. Other nights were dressed nice, but in no way formal. If we didn't want to get dressed up at all we went to the buffet. All in all. I would say it was "cruise casual". I thought that the Caribbean was less dressy than Alaska, but it could have been that it was really hot/humid...and no one had the energy or inclination
Thanks so much for the reply. I appreciate it.
I have only sailed on Princess once and it was to the Caribbean. Just go by the dress code suggested. I think that a collared knit shirt for men and a nice top & pants (or skirt) or Capri pants for women would be fine for non formal dinners in the Main Dining Room..
