Do all the boys wear suits, ties, dress shoes?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We will get what he needs but I did not want to buy it and then find out all the boys did not wear it.

Thanks, Dorothy
I have 2 boys (10 & 12), and normally on our Disney cruises, I bring suits & ties with dress shoes for our boys. We live in Seattle where it's pretty casual, so having an excuse to really dress up is fun for us! But, on the Med cruise, our boys will just be wearing khaki pants, button up shirts and ties, and probably sandals for shoes. We're not bringing the suits and dress shoes (my husband will do the same as our boys, and I'll just be bringing one NICE dress for formal night, and then a lot of sun dresses). We are doing an extended trip in Europe beyond the cruise, so we don't want to take up our luggage space for the suits since the only time the boys would wear them is formal night. So, that is what our boys will be wearing on formal night. They still will look dressed up.

But, really, if you have the room for suits for your teen boys, then I say have them wear the suits!! You see everything on formal night from "casual" to "formal". So, I wouldn't worry about what other boys might be wearing because you literally will see everything, so I'm sure there will be other boys wearing suits, and then some boys wearing a t-shirt and pants and everything in between.

(btw, I don't know if you have a Marshalls store where you live, or Ross? But, if you do, I totally agree that it normally makes no sense to have the boys own their own suits with how fast they grow, BUT I do buy my boys suits, but I buy them at Marshalls. I can get a full suit (jacket and pants set) that the original retail price is over $100, but I can get it at a discounted price for $29.99 at Marshalls. Anyway, if you have a Marshalls or Ross where you live, check them out... they might have suits for your boys for cheap (or any store in your area that sells designer/nice clothes at discounted prices (usually the clothes are out of season, or last year's clothing line, so they just want to get rid of them for cheap)! Since I buy my boy's suits there for such a good price, I don't feel bad replacing them often with how fast they grow.

Excursion Plans....

OK....Now I can take a moment to share what we booked!

We have always done DCL excursions, just b/c we know they will not LEAVE us in whatever lovely location we are visiting.

Here's the plan:

Villefranche: White River Rafting

La Spezia: Cinque Terre Scenic Boat Tour (although we are looking for options to see more of the villages by doing this on our own, but booked this as back up....input accepted!)

Civitavecchia: Bracchiano & Wine Tasting (we did the Jumping Back to Eternal Rome excursion in 2010, and it was fantastic.....but a LOOOOONNNNNGGGG day! We are opting for less TOURING this time!)

At Sea: Brunch at PALO

At Sea: Dinner at PALO

Piraeus: Athens Sightseeing, Acropolis and New Acropolis Museum with Lunch (Adult Only Departure) Yup....gonna be a full day; Still trying to figure out how to make it possible to RUN in Athens......that would be TOOOO cool!

Kusadasi: Ephesus and Sirince Village

Mykonos: Elia Beach (We are going to pretend this is Castaway Day!)

At Sea: Couple's Massage

Valletta: Three Historic Cities and Dghajsa Boat Ride (Hoping to go to a beach on our own for the afternoon......any thoughts?)


Whew! Gonna be busy! Can't wait!

Penny

Hi, everyone! We are PIF as well, as of Wednesday of this week

Now I have to work on our airfare, which is complicated since my 18-year old will already be in Europe before our cruise and my youngest (who will be 16 by then) is staying in Spain for 3 weeks following the cruise . . . only my oldest daughter and myself are traveling together on both legs of the trip.

I wanted to comment on the tipping. It is certainly true that in Europe tipping is not as common or expected as in the US. However, one caveat is that tour companies who do a lot of business with Americans often have come to expect tips over the years, and some may have even factored that into their prices. If you are out to eat in a restaurant, look to see if service is included, and if so, just leave some change on the table. But for a private tour, I would tend to still tip 10-20%.

Also, I think even in Turkey they would prefer euro to US dollars . . . . I have booked a private tour there and was quoted a price in euros.

Congrats to those who have already booked! I'm gold, so will be doing so in less than two weeks!

My ds12 and ds15 wore tuxes on the Med and Baltic cruises in 2007 and 2010 on Formal night and suits on semi-formal night. I purchased them all relatively cheap and new from Ebay and Kohls. This cruise both are growing quickly and if their current suits still fit, we will take them for both formal and semi formal night with 2 different shirts/ties each. If not, they'll be wearing black pants, button downs and ties. The other nights probably a mix of polos or nice shirts/khakis.

My DS will be 15. He will be wearing his band tux pants, a vest we bought for dances for him and he has a couple ties as well as a dress shirt. I will probably get him new black/gray Vans for shoes. He will wear those a lot and his feet grow to fast for dress shoes. He wears his band shoes to dances, but I don't want to pack those. I am fine with the Vans. I am not sure on the other nights in the dining room. I would like him to wear Khakis, but not sure he will. It will probably be nice jeans and a shirt. He doesn't mind that. I swear he grows an inch a month these days!

dress code suggestions

Thanks so much for all our your suggestions. I was telling my DH how friendly and helpful everyone is. I can't wait to meet you all!

In an earlier post, I may have mentioned that my DS is 13 (will be 14 a few days before sail date) is about 6 feet tall already and size 11.5 extra wide feet. He is a bit of a bean pole these days. He outgrows everything so it is hard for me to keep up. I think we will go with a dress shirt and tie and black dress pants and black running shoes. My DH said, "who knows by then he may fit into my suits," which I had not thought of so that may be an option. Of course he does not fit into his last set of dress shirts, pants and shoes purchased at Christmas time but we can get new ones. I would love to see him in a tux but I think he would not agree to that.

Thanks everyone!!

For the day in La Spezia, we are looking at going to visit Pisa, then I would like to set up a cooking class for our family of four. The Disney one is 18 and up, and I don't want to leave my son behind (15). Does anyone know of a place/tour company we could set up a cooking class with? I am doing a little searching, but I was just wondering if anyone knew of anything that either they had done before or someone else had done. Thanks so much!

That is exactly what we are doing. Except the opposite - cooking and then Pisa.

I had a pretty tough time finding a place near La Spezia - and I sent quite a few emails to different companies without response.

I have written about it in my pre-trip report (post 5 & 19) if that might help you at all. (The link is in my signature)

Hi everyone -- I've been reading through recent posts and it sounds like many of you are getting all of your plans firmed up. Hurrah for you! I so wish my family was going with all of you. I'll be thinking of you in July when the Magic pulls away from Barcelona! Do send me a PM if I have missed adding anyone to the Roll Call on page one. I try to check the thread regularly but it is very possible that a few pages have gone by that I have missed reading! Also, if there is anything you'd like me to add to the posts on great websites to check etc, send me a PM and I'll add them to those posts as well.

Take care!!

Beth

clothes & shoes?

Hello everyone,

I saw a thread on this on the main Dis boards, so I thought I'd bring it up here to see what you all have planned (if you've thought this far ahead).

What do you all plan to wear at the ports where it'll most likely be very hot, but then have to cover your shoulders and wear long pants/skirts to go into churches, the Vatican, temples, etc. etc. etc.

This is not my style at all, but I'm considering getting some of those convertible pants. They are light weight, work well in the heat, and they can be shorts, but also pants when you need them, so very versitile. But, I also might bring longer light weight skirts. As for tops (for me), I'm thinking of tank tops, but then have a light weight shawl to put over my shoulders when I need to cover up. Hmmmmm.....

As for the guys (my husband and boys), I might get the convertible pants for them, too, and they will just wear t-shirts.

But, just wondering what you all plan, and maybe I'll get more ideas this way!

We are trying to be economical with our packing because we are spending time in Europe before and after our cruise, so we don't want a lot of extra clothes or heavy clothes.

Also, does anyone have any good recommendations of GOOD walking shoes/sandals that work well in the heat, but you can go hours all day without your feet hurting or getting blisters? I'd love recommendations of what type of shoe you love (I'm fine paying a lot for a GOOD shoe... I think shoes will make or break your day. There is nothing worse than having hurting feet and you still have several hours to go)! For shoes, I'm kind of thinking of something light weight, airy (to help with the heat), but very stable, comfortable, durable and sturdy, and if possibly, fashionable (ie, for a female, can wear with both pants and a skirt/dress), that would be a bonus! Can you get all of these qualities in ONE shoe?!
Thanks!!

As a runner, you probably already know this, but I would strongly suggest seeking out a specialty running store and getting fitted for a good walking shoe. Finding a shoe that doesn't hurt when you walk is entirely dependant on how it fits your foot (do you pronate? supinate? heel strike? etc...), and a popular sneaker from Foot Locker ain't gonna cut it. For avoiding blisters, I use Lanacane (a antichafing ointment you can find even at WalMart). Even with my good shoes and good socks, the friction of 13.1 or 26.2 miles of continuous movement used to leave me with huge blisters on the balls of my feet. Enter Lanacane & I haven't had a problem since.

I would not sacrifice comfort for fashion. Wearing sneakers with a skirt would be better than being in pain IMHO.

I agree that everyone's feet and style choices are different but I can tell you that I love TEVA leather sandals. I have worn them on long hikes, white water rafting and with sundresses. Before the trip I would wear them quite a bit so you verify they are comfortable. I have worn keen leather sandals as well that worked well.

Thanks! Yes, I am the first person to know that comfort/proper fit trumps fashion!! I've been a runner for 20+ years and the biggest mistake "new" runners make is they go to the running shoe store and pick out the shoe that has the best colors or are "fun" looking or they just like the overall look of the shoe, and then they end up getting injured because it's the total wrong shoe for their foot.

I pronate, but I also have to factor in an old ankle injury that still haunts me. My good friend is a physical therapist, so I am also planning to get her input, because I can't be dealing with ankle pain (and will make sure I get shoes to prevent that from happening) on our trip, but I just was wondering if anyone here has any good sturdy and stable walking shoes/sandals that they love, and I might check them out.

But, I was just saying that "if" I could find a really good walking shoe that was cute, that would be a bonus, but that would not be my main reason for choosing a good walking shoe.

I was hoping to get some sort of really good walking sandal or slip on, like Keen's or Merrell, or Ecco, or one of those brands. BUT, I am going to go and try on all sorts of walking shoes/sandals and I do have specialty running shoe stores I have bought my running shoes at, so I do plan to go there as well.

I also like "The Walking Company", but the people who work there don't always know what they are talking about. But, I may see what they have there.

But, I TOTALLY agree with all you said!!! Thanks

(oh, and I am no longer running... threw in the towel about 4 months ago. It has been a great 20+ years of running, but my ankle is done running, and I need to keep my ankle healthy, and listen to my body! So, I am now officially a "brisk walker". And, I love it (and so does my ankle)!!!

Oh good. I was a little worried that you WERE one of those runners that's more concerned about being cute and I was gonna haffta give ya the whatfor from my soapbox I'm a late-to-start runner (got inspired to start running at 35) and still use the run-walk method but am working toward just running. Listening to your body is SOOO important! and brisk walking totally counts still!
