    Simply states NO SHORTS -- not hard folks, it seems they do not care what you wear on your feet:evil:

    I could care less what people are wearing, but apparently there are several people who do. That is there choice. But when they try to dictate their own preferences to others, that is where I draw the line. The dress code is what it is. If someone is not comfortable with the stated dress code, then try a different line with a dress code more to your liking.

    I have never witnessed he staff challenging anybody wearing shorts or hats in the dining room. It is sad, they should go to the windjammer if they don't want to get dressed.

    too true.... makes one think we might all be raging alcoholics, and dress like slobs when cruizin... OR, that we are uptight old farts who can't let go of the past who drink to forget that life is passing us by.

    I guess it depends on which side of the discussions you sit...

    No appology necessary Hawkeye. Whether one agree or disagrees, you managed to stir up the grey matter and make prople think. That's always a good thing. Plus, at least you had the asked. There are dozens out there who had the question, but not the courage to post it.

    Yeah Hawkeye... it's a good post, It's just one that people are really dug in on where they stand. Some people truely despise formal nights, while others simply adore it.. there is no right or wrong about the question only which side of the fence you sit. and from either side we all still have great cruises.. and that's the important thing.

    As long as we are on the subject, why is it people object to Jeans in the dining room but not to Genes? Seems a little sexist to me.

    UM.... aren't jeans unisex?? so i don't get the sexist part... If i were to bring up the subject of genetics it would only be to point out the fact that those who would wear jeans to an elegant dining occasion were the recipents of leftover gene soup....:biggrin:

    Thanks for the posts, this clears up my questions as well.

    I think that sometimes people forget that different people come from different backgrounds. Two cruises ago, my wife and I sat with a couple at dinner from Texas, who never showed up to the formal nights. They despised wearing "purdy clothes" (as one of them actually called it) so they decided not to go, which I believe to be the wise thing. When in rome...(and if you can't do as the Romans do, go back to Greece for a short time!). I personally enjoy and am most comfortable in nice jeans, a collared shirt, and sports coat with some dress shoes during formal night, which is what I always wore to Carnival's formal nights. I do own a tux and a couple of suits, but I've always believed that if I'm on a cruise, and am in my late twenties, I don't want to have to dress up like I do for meetings in the business world. This is vacation, people! Dress DOWN!

    Anyway, I do agree with dressing at least semi-formal (meaning a sport coat and no shorts/flip flops/tennis shoes) during formal nights, but won't look down on anybody for not wearing a suite and tie.

    (Last cruise, an elderly gentleman and his family, children and all, continued to stare at me during formal night because of the jeans I mentioned above. It's as if they were offended, like their steak could not be digested in the presence of such an atrocity. I simply smiled and continued eating.)
