    Dress code
    What is the dress code for evening dinner on board ?
    2019-04-15 22:44
    Hi Mark,
    Greetings from China! For evening dinner onboard, it is better to wear some formal attire that is appreciated by the cruise companies, like a suit with a pair of leather shoes, an evening dress with high-heels, etc., however, you are not very strictly required to do so because the cruises also want you to enjoy your vacation. So remember one thing, Relax Yourself! Just wear as comfortable as you do. If you want to enjoy the parties but do in a more comfortable way, you could wear following our tips at below.

    For Ladies:
    To enjoy it in a more comfortable way, ladies could wear long skirts, comfortable kitten-heels or low-heels, etc. If you want to join with better comfort, please avoid too short skirts, trainers, sports clothes, round-neck shirts, jeans, and other too casual things.

    For Gentlemen:
    Apart from the official suit with a tie and leather shoes, gentlemen could prepare some leisure suits, casual shirt, thin shoes, etc. However, please keep away from the shorts, trainers, sports clothes, round-neck shirts, jeans, and other too casual clothes.

    Wish you a nice sailing experience in China!
