Q. What will the dress code be whilst I am on board?
Dress Codes By Cruise
We have two evening Dress Codes on-board all our ships; Evening Casual and Black Tie. Details of these, by cruise, can be viewed via the links below. We also host Theme Nights, details of which can be found in the question - Do you have them nights on board?.

Round World Cruise
Dress codes are yet to be released for World Cruises in 2017 but please check back for updates.
From 2016 we simplified our Dress Codes on board all our ships. We know that our guests 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 however the Smart Jacket Required Dress Code will no longer apply, therefore 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.
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.
