By the way, one of the important parts of this evening is the acquaintance with the ship’s Captain. All the guests get together on the Promenade, drink champagne, listen to the Captain’s speech, talk to each other, and enjoy everything happening around. Most of them follow the Captains dinner dress code; however, you can also meet people in casual clothing.
