On a cruise line where half the people will show up to formal night in jeans, yes, very over-the-top. Personally I think they are over-the-top for any formal night on any cruise, it's dinner, not the red carpet.

Over the top and how would you protect these dresses in your luggage?

I'd look really stupid in either of those.

Maybe it's because I'm male...........

They will be fine....after all, it IS "Elegant" night! If you have a body like the models, then it will be great! You will be one of the better dressed women there!

depending on the cruise line (Carnival is probably the most informal), they are not over the top for a formal dinner tho your SO should be dressed in a tux if you go this route.

I would expect the Captain's night-dress would be pure silk, somewhat frilly, from Victoria's Secret -- but not overdoing it enugh that the bo'sun would make fun of him. Kiss me, Hardy.

^I agree with this. I was on the Carnival Miracle in August 2011 (first cruise). I was surprised at how many passengers didn't care about 'formal night.' As for the dress examples provided by the OP, I did not see one woman dressed in a 'va-va-voom' style - and we had 2 formal nights, IIRC. So IMHO, those styles are over the top and something I'd imagine a "Real Housewife of New Jersey" would wear to some gala. I'd tone it down.
