As for your point about formal wear i have to totally disagree with you on that point, i think that my husband looks so dapper and sexy when he gets all dressed up and i feel very special and extra sexy when i get all dressed up in a form-fitting halter gown cut low in the back with a slit up to the knee
You're saying you dress out of respect to please the cruise line, cruise personnel & the passengers? WOW ! Like they really care how you dress. The only thing the ship personal care about is how happy you are so they'll get their tips. I dress for how I feel what is appropriate & if it isn't up to the so called standards of other passengers in the DR it's to bad their meal is degraded because of it. They've got other problems if my dress isn't up to their idea of what my appearance should look like.
If dressing up makes you feel special, then do it every evening of you like but don't begrudge others for not doing so.
When they start offering the same exact food at the buffets is when I'll stop eating in the main dr.
