Hello Everyone!

We will be on the Royal Princess for the 10 day Southern Caribbean cruise set for Friday March 30. There are two formal nights. Can anyone tell us which nights are the formal nights? We want to get the spa dates and specialty restaurants set. I have been having difficulty getting this question answered.

Thanks so much !

You won't get the actual date of formal nights until once on board. You already have the number of formal days. We like to book specialties for the formal nights, so once on board and have the dates, then I lock those in.

Thank you for your time in responding !

Agreed, we also like booking the specialty restaurants on formal nights.

Thanks Bubba54, I appreciate your response !


There is no sure way to know until you get onboard. A Norwegian Cruise Line rep told me the formal night for my cruise would be on the 2nd night which happens to be a sea day.

In other words, go for booking specialty dining on sea days.
