The change, which will commence on 4 December 2015, and reflects the modern luxury style of cruising that Celebrity is known for, while acknowledging current cruise attire trends that have moved towards sophistication and relaxation, rather than stuffiness and structure.
“The introduction of Evening Chic nights perfectly complements the modern luxury holiday experience Celebrity Cruises offers. Passengers will be free to be glamorous, chic and sophisticated in their own way,” said Adam Armstrong, Commercial Director Celebrity Cruises Australia.
“We will also keep several Formal Night traditions on Evening Chic nights, but will add a modern twist to them. This includes a new Captain’s Reception featuring destination-inspired cocktails, new photo/portrait opportunities as well as senior-officer-hosted tables at various restaurants throughout the cruise. Lobster will also continue to be offered on Evening Chic nights,” he said.
Evening Chic nights will take place on up to two nights on every cruise. Women should feel comfortable whether they are wearing a cocktail dress, skirt, pants or even designer jeans with an elegant top, while men will fit in, in trousers or designer jeans with a dress shirt, button down shirt or even a sweater. A sports coat or blazer is optional. All other nights of the cruise will feature smart casual attire.
