What is the formal night dress code for kids?

Question by Anonymous from Nebraska

Formal night is really what you choose to make of it. It is one of the great debated topics among cruisers as far as how formal you have to be. That being said, I think kids get more of a pass. I have girls so we have brought a range of things for them, from super fancy dresses, to some more casual sun dresses. For boys if you can get them to wear a polo and some nice pants, I would say that is completely acceptable. Some families use this opportunity to get some nice family photos done so you may want something a little nicer than that, but there is no need for kids to be dressed in Formal dresses and suits and ties if you don’t want them to be.
