A-Z Guide to Cruise Holidays 13Please note that on day of embarkation we always operate a Smart Casual code for dinner as your cabin baggage can take up to 2 hours to be delivered to your cabin.Dress Suit HireFor many, hiring or packing a dress suit can be a hassle. But there is a simple solution. Floating Formals allows you to hire suits, which you can pre-book at home by telephone on 0208 952 1497. When you arrive on board your suit will be pressed and waiting for you in your cabin. When the cruise is over, you just leave the garment on board to be collected again from your cabin. Orders can be placed up to 72 hours before sailing and the service is limited to cruises departing and returning to Dover, Portsmouth and Southampton.
14 A-Z Guide to Cruise HolidaysDuty FreeGuests should kindly note that due to company policy, only alcohol purchased on our vessels may be consumed on board. Any alcohol brought from ashore will be placed in safe keeping by the ship's security officers and returned at the end of the cruise. However, you may purchase cigarettes, tobacco and alcohol on board to enjoy in your cabin or take home via either our Cabin Shopping Service, or on- board boutique, which give you excellent savings on shoreside prices. Duty Free purchases can normally be made on the last full day of your sailing, subject to itinerary. See Shopping On Board for more details.When returning from EU countries there is no limit to the amount of goods you can bring back into the UK (exceptions apply for certain Eastern European countries).
