Cruizer - cool off a little. ITA with sheilauk, though I might not go to the extreme of getting someone removed from the dinning room, I still feel her passion reagrding proper dress for formal nights. It was obvious by your post that you agree with her (to an extent), so why bash her when she obviously has a good point? Your assertion that you would not want to sit with her is contradictory to your willingness to observe the dress code. She and her guest are dressed properly, you and your guest are dressed properly, so what more would you want? Formal night is a long-standing tradition in the cruise lore, and one that I hope continues for a long time to come. I might not say anything to the person at my table, but I would say something to the matre' d following the meal. Sheilauk is spot on - SAY SOMETHING! And I plan to. Force RC to either publicly relax their policy OR enforce it. I don't think that is too much to ask. And Sheilauk, the offer still stands - I'll sit at your table ANY cruise!
