Our last 16 day cruise was several years ago, but we had 4 formal nights.

Each cruise line has its own policy as to the number of "formal" and "semiformal" (or "informal") evenings based on the duration of the cruise, so you'll have to check with your cruise line to get the correct answer. You should also check your cruise line's published dress standards, as some cruise lines advertise "formal" evenings but then publish standards of dress that are not really "formal" at all. (Here, I mean that the cruise line says that "formal" means a sport coat and tie -- which is really "informal" by standard social etiquette.)
