Would you bother with formal attire on a 2 night cruise?

Would make the effort?
Would you cut down on your luggage and not bother?

But I need a pair for when I wear high(ish) heels, another for medium heels and another for walking shoes. I need a pair of dressy evening ones, corduroy ones. They can be with a waist band or draw string for casual wear. Formal cut or casual cut.......and that's just for winter. Summer means not just the same amount but in lightweight material. It means I have to take into consideration cropped trousers - in three different lengths and again smart and casual.
In brief the result is that in my wardrobe I have about 15 pairs of black trousers.

Well I am doing something wrong - I will take 4 prs of trousers for 4 weeks.
