    Why not be courteous to your fellow passengers and be comfortable too? Dark blazer, matching slacks, white shirt and bowtie and nobody will notice you're not in a suit or tux. I do it all the time and nobody's ever called me on it.( On other nights you just wear the khaki slacks and the blazer looks like a blazer again )

    I do not care what folks wear on formal night as long as they do not wear jeans or shorts...

    If they look nice who cares

    I myself love to dress up

    Wow! I must be a real anachronism! I mix up my dinner jacket and tux jacket for the two formal nights, with a cummerbund on the former and a vest with the latter.
    I'm sure they mean the "traditional definition," as that's formal; a blazer is actually informal attire, as opposed to a sports coat, which is casual (the difference being the cut and pattern of one versus the other--blazers never have a pattern, and have metal as opposed to bone, wood, leather or plastic buttons).
    That said, a blazer would be a better fit in the dining room than a sports coat, but is still not formal--not that anyone will faint or cry "foul" no matter what you wear!

    Then yes, you do care!

    I feel like it is ultimately up to the individual if they want to go all out with a tux or not. The cruise itself should not pressure people one way or another. Unless you are the type of person who is super social conscientious, then you have a problem. Good luck!

    My dad would prefer a v neck sweater and collared shirt for dinner but he will break down and take a jacket with change of ties for our formal nights.

    Just curious, can you order lobster and duck l'orange for room service on formal nights?

    If the idea is to comply with the rules and blend in with the least effort, why not a blue sport coat with blue slacks and a bowtie? No extra effort and you blend in enough not to spoil the pretty picture for those who care.
