• Men's dress code for the Captains dinner

    Though I have to admit, I have never taken a cruise on a ship like this or on a huge cruise ship, I think we have to define the term’European’ because many foreign travellers we see in other countries tend to be British and they no longer dress up. They have gone the American way of casualness. Last night we had the Welcome reception of our latest Tauck land tour. I do tend to be influenced a little these days by what I read about dress code on this forum, so I brought a couple of dresses to wear for the welcome and farewell dinners. Mr B never brings a jacket, he happens to be one of those men who looks good in a nice formal shirt and that is what he wore. The green booklet and paperwork from the tour director was suggestive of dressing up. Well, guess what, I was the only one in a dress, another woman had a skirt. One man wore a jacket. The rest were in pants, a number wore what i would describe as quite scruffy jeans, one woman wore jeans with the holes in the knees effect. So the answer is, wear what you like. The staff in this elegant hotel treat you just the same anyway, even if they are thinking otherwise.

It’s no wonder so many people take romantic holidays. Travel is close to the very essence of romance. What better way to ignite passion, or to celebrate it, than to run away together? When a couple is swept away by wild romance, it follows naturally that they want to go off together to some romantic setting, such as Rio, Paris, Tahiti, Hawai...
