Those who do dress up to enter dress code areas, expect the cruise operator to enforce the contractual terms they were promised. Those who do not wish to...

One of our favourite comedians, Funny Tucker is found, if you are lucky on the bigger ships. Those who like the smaller ships may miss out on acts like Tucker.
