Long ago we bought a 99.00 tux at JCPenney that my husband would wear but now he just brings a regular suit. We have scaled down our formal wear attire a bit for more comfortable and easy to pack alternatives. We have never rented, so can't help you there.

I would bring a tux with me for cruises. There are limited sizes available on the ship unless they allow you to reserve in advance. We had a local tux shop that would allow us to keep the tux for the extended period of the cruise.

There is no way I would wear a tux, a suit, or even a tie on a cruise ship.

no information on renting one but unless you are at the "captains table" you will probably be a bit overdressed in a tux

I would contact the Cruise Ship’s website for such information.

No need to. Sport coats or suits are acceptable on formal nights.

This may be on certain cruise lines, but not our experience...21 cruises....last 10 on Princess.

My guesstimate is the split among tux or not, ladies dressing to the max is about 50-50. The cruise lines like so many organizations, in recent years has watered down the tradition of formal night.

We are in the 50% that looks forward to the formal events.

I find it takes no more effort to pack a tux than it does a sport jacket and slacks.

Once again to each his/her own.

I started cruising when the entire atmosphere was more formal. Now, because of the size of the ships and their need to fill them they have lowered the standard a bunch. There are cruse lines out there that still cater to those that enjoy a higher level of cruising. I agree with the retired guy, if you are taking the major cruise lines there is no need for a tux.....you will be in the minority.
