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.
The dress codes listed below are subject to change.
Arcadia from cruise J602 through to J619
Aurora from cruise R602 through to R621
Azura from cruise A432 through to A632A
Oceana from cruise E601 through to E619
Oriana from cruise X601 through to X623N
Ventura from cruise N602 through to N633
Britannia from cruise B602 through to B701
Round World Cruise
Aurora R601 - theme dress code will be 60s & 70s and Tropical
Arcadia J601 - theme dress code will be 60s & 70s and Black & White
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.
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.
We will be moving from three to two dress codes on board 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:
- J601 - 11 January 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.
