Q. What will the dress code be whilst I am on board?

Dress Codes By Cruise

Details of the number of Black Tie, Smart - Jacket Required & Evening Casual nights, along with expected theme nights can be viewed via the links below. Full details of the evening's dress code will be published once on board via the Horizon newspaper delivered to your cabin daily.

Azura from cruise A432 through to A606A

Aurora from cruise R501 through to R520

Arcadia from cruise J423 through to J521

Adonia from cruise D501 through to D601A

Oceana from cruise E434 through to E602

Oriana from cruise X501 through to X526

Ventura from cruise N501 through to N607

Britannia from cruise B502 through to B606A

 

Please note when adhering to the dress code, you should aim to dress as per the dress code as detailed in the Horizon newspaper. On Theme Nights it is optional to dress appropriately.

For example:
On a night where a Black & White theme is planned and the dress code is Black Tie, formal Black Tie attire would be appropriate.
On a night where the theme is 60's & 70's and the Dress Code is Evening Casual, you are welcome to dress in 60's & 70's style clothing to enhance the ambience, however smart casual dress would be the appropriate alternative.

Please note:

We will be moving from three to two dress codes on board Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora and Oriana from 2016. The Smart Jacket Required dress code will no longer apply, we will only have Evening Casual and Black Tie.

We hope this change will help make your packing a little easier and give you a great blend of formal night glamour and laid-back style on your holiday. These changes will come into effect from the dates below:

  • D608 - 24 April 2016
  • J602 - 5 May 2016
  • R602 - 26 April 2016
  • X604 - 20 March 2016 

We know that our passengers adore dressing up and it has long been a part of the P&O Cruises experience, so Black Tie evenings are still firmly part of the on board programme.

In addition, details of dress codes can be obtained via the Cruise Personaliser

Please note, that this information is subject to change and final details will be confirmed on board.
