Fontainebleau Hilton Resort: Luxury & nostalgia PDF Print E-mail

Fontainebleau Resort, Miami Beach FL

Many senior travelers remember the glory days of Miami Beach’s Fontainebleu Hotel when it was hip and new in the ‘50s and ‘60s. While we working stiffs couldn’t afford to join the moneyed visitors from New York and Philly in their posh suites, some of us were privileged then to be there on business and conference gigs.

It was the epitome of luxury then, and famed for the roster of entertainment stars who stayed as guests and those who performed at the resort’s Tropigala Room. The Fontainebleu’s guest list included presidents, prime ministers, international mobsters, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Bob Hope, Sammy Davis, Jr., Lucille Ball, Jerry Lewis, Woody Allen, Desi Arnaz and a host of other notables.

Tips: How to pack formal for a cruise PDF Print E-mail


Tuxes are spiffy on cruises, but are they necessary?

If you’re considering taking formal clothing for your cruise, first be aware that on most cruises today they are not required. However, for many senior cruise passengers, it’s an enjoyable tradition to dress up in formal clothing for sit-down dinners and at the late night dance and entertainment programs. Dressing up gives feelings of elegance you don’t have on nights out at home. Another plus is that you can get photos and/or video to show the folks at home how elegant you were on your voyage.

Before you pack formal clothing for a cruise, consider certain factors. First, along with shoes and other necessary accessories, those items take up considerable weight and space in your baggage. If you're accustomed to traveling with only carry-on bags, forget formal wear. If you take the upscale duds, you’ll need at least one large suitcase for each person. Additionally, if you’re flying to get to the cruise ship, the suitcases will have to be checked at ever-increasing airline charges.
