The brochures say the captain's dinner is dressy. Do I have to dress up?
Many passengers do dress up a bit for the last night's dinner, especially on the more deluxe barges, but it is not required. If you are chartering a barge, it is entirely up to your group's preferences. If you are on a hotel barge with other passengers, you may want to bring a slightly dressier outfit for the last dinner. But remember to keep your packing simple and light. A jacket and tie are not needed unless you go to finer restaurants on shore.
