Just returned from Galaxy (11-night Ultimate Caribbean) and as always, we had a wonderful time. Despite a few glitches (hey, nothing's perfect!), the cruise was great. I do, however, have one bone to pick with Celebrity - our favorite cruiseline. This was our 25th cruise - 15th on Celebrity; 4th on Galaxy. I know the dress code issue is a hot one and I don't mean to incite a riot, but I'm going to vent. It is my understanding that the changes introduced by Celebrity in their "rebranding" marketing campaign were implemented in an attempt to set the line apart from the mass market lines. The changes are subtle and do, in fact, add a nice touch to an already wonderful cruise experience, but IMHO if Celebrity really wants to market itself as "upscale," premium" and "refined," the time has come for the line to take a stand on the issue of suggested/required evening attire. If Celebrity is going to post suggested evening attire in the cruise daily and ask that passengers dress accordingly when in public areas of the ship after 6PM, the line should make some attempt, within reason, to follow through on that request. I'll go out on a limb here and say that I'm "put off" by passengers allowed into the dining room for dinner in shorts, tee shirts and flip-flops. When did "casual" become synonomous with "beachwear?" When did "formal" come to mean dockers, a shirt and sneakers or capri pants, a tank top and flip-flops? The number of passengers on this cruise not conforming to the suggested evening attire was mind-boggling, so much so that some folks we met suggested that Celebrity simply change its suggested evening attire to "shirts and shoes required," and leave it at that. The powers that be at Celebrity have to make a decision regarding where they want to be in the cruise industry. If they want to maintain a certain evening ambiance onboard their ships and are going to continue to post guidelines to achieve that ambiance, then they need to get word out to the public that if you want to cruise with Celebrity, you will be expected to dress accordingly - again, within reason. That done, they have to have the courage of their convictions and politely turn people away from the dining room if they are improperly dressed for dinner. No clothing police, just common sense. Otherwise, just forget the suggested/required dress code entries in the daily and fall into step with the mass market lines where apparently anything goes.
