Yes the Infinity has tux rentals. You can get information by calling
1-800-551-5091 or 305-252-8572. I believe they are around $85.00 for the cruise. A dark colored suit works just fine. I have worn a dark colored suit on formal nights on my last 2 Celebrity cruises and felt just fine, considering what I see other men wearing. Usually there are about 40-50 % of the men in tuxes on a formal night. The others are in suits of many colors or other dress. I won't get into the debate about dress on formal nights as this issued has been debated to death! The bottom line, dress nicely and you will look just fine. This is a vacation so just relax and enjoy it. FYI, if you think you may have a future need for a tux or might have the occasion to wear a tux at least once a year, you might consider buying one. I just purchased one at Men's Wearhouse and got a great looking tux for a very reasonable price.
If it's not too much to ask, what do you consider a very reasonable price for a tux? We've never bought one. Also, is it possible to alter a tux? My hubby keeps vowing to take off some weight (someday!).
I paid $229.00 for mine. In all likelihood you will have to make some alterations to a tux just as you would to a suit off the rack. You can get complete tux packages at www.buy4lesstuxedo.com. and other tuxedo web sites. Their tuxedo packages start at only $139.00 but you will need some alterations done when you get it so add some cost to the package for alterations. I have never had a tux and don't particularly like wearing tuxes. However, after buying a tux and having the tux altered to fit properly, I have to say this tux looks and fits as nice as my favorite dress suit. Hope this information helps.
Yes, they do. There is a cruise formal web site where you can rent a tux - around $85. You can get extra tie/cumb., shoes for nominal price. Can't remember the exact name at this time but you could do a search at google.com. Tux will be in your room waiting for you. They supposidly have a tailor on board who can do small alterations and even have a limited number of tuxes you can rent right there - I wouldn't take the chance though. Ordered one for my father-in-law - go to a tux shop first and asked to be measured for an out of town rental. Good luck.
I finally bought my own tux after a cruise. I had rented one from a local tux place here in CT. When I returned it I asked about the cost to purchase one like I had rented. He sold me that one for $170.00. Plus he took off the cost of my rental fee (60.00) So that brought my final cost to own my own tux to just over 100.00. He also dry cleaned it for me and gave me two shirts. Can't beat that with a stick. I also just wore the Tux to my daughters wedding this past August.
So if you and your hubby plan on cruising a lot,, IMO it pays to buy your own.
I just bought my husband a tux and all accessories on e-bay from the tuxxman. It cost less to buy it than it would have to rent it for an eleven night cruise. It arrived in great condition and I was totally satisfied. Just a thought ... he probably has your size too and it's nicer to own your tux instead of renting. you can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll bet he can help you out too.
I think you've convinced me and given me some places to look for one. I have a formal Christmas party at work every year, plus with our (hopefully) extensive cruising we plan to do, I think it's worth it. Wish me luck shopping this weekend!
