On this ship there will be about 5 dressy nights on your cruise, you can hire an evening dress suit for your first cruise, otherwise take a loung suit or wear a jacket and tie for dinner, you can always take the jacket back to the cabin after dining.
Register your credit card as soon as you board, then all you spend will be booked to your cabin, tips are usualy added to your bill, you can go to the front desk and cancel this and ask for emvelops, but do try to tip your cabin steward and waiters as they are worth every penny
Enjoy your first cruise.
Thank you R. Beverage for replying to my question. It was very kind of you and I have noted what you said.
