    My family just booked a 3-night cruise. Do they still have formal nights or are they reserved for longer itineraries? We love an excuse to dress up.

    Ahoy, Christopher!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel with your question.

    On a three night cruise, you can expect the following:

    • One "Cruise Casual" night,  which means no swimwear or tank tops
    • One Pirate Night with a themed deck party
    • One optional "dress-up night" - jacket for men, dress or pantsuit for women 

    On the optional dress-up night, you'll see guests dressed in everything from sundresses to formal gowns. Many guests, like you, use it as an excuse to dress up and make the most of the onboard photography services. You'll find the ship's photographers in the lobby before and after dinner seatings, with several setups and backdrops to choose from. You'll also have a chance for photos with your favorite Disney Characters, dressed in their finest formalwear. There's nothing cuter than Donald Duck in a tuxedo jacket!​

    Don't forget to pack your favorite pirate gear for Pirate Night, where you can eat, dance, and be merry at a buccaneer bash fit for a pirate! Don't worry if you don't have a stash of eye patches and puffy shirts - every guest will be given a pirate bandanna and the gift shops have plenty of accessories available for purchase.

    I hope this helps with your planning and packing. Please let us know if you have further questions before you set sail! - Diane W.
