I stopped pushing the issue years ago and now he tries to dress to look like he should be with me...his choice of words. I'm sure that your family will look just fine. We did not find the supper club to be that much dressier than the regular dining room. You're in the Caribbean and since extreme casual is the code by day, it doesn't shift too far in the other direction at night. Longer cruises (2 weeks or more) draw older, wealthier crowd, so tend to be dessier.
Thanks yes, I'm sure he'll find something he's happy with. A nice good quality suit is probably the way forward. Now, I agree with you, I love men in black tie. Fortunately for me DH quite likes to dress up on special occasions. On the other hand, I guess a tux is too much for the supper club though.
