Even on Elegant night you will see people in blue jeans in the dining room.... so don't stress.
No comment from me if I think it's a good move or not... but those are the facts of Carnival's present "dress codes".
Factually, I think it's great that one
cruise line, or even two, are offering such ambiance for those who prefer it. OTOH, I don't want to see the whole industry follow their lead. I do think that there is plenty of room in the cruise industry for ultra-formal lines, ultra-casual lines, and lines that are somewhere in between.
