"The prescribed evening dress applies throughout the whole ship, except designated casual areas, after 6:00 PM."

The "designated casual areas" generally consist of the buffet restaurant, the pool area, and the gym.

And yes, on several of my cruises (thirteen on each of those lines), I have personally witnessed enforcement of such policies.

Actually Princess only asks you to be formally dressed during dinner in the DR and not for any other events. There are many people who change into more comfortable clothing immediately after dinner to enjoy the shows, movie or just lounge around. I'm not really sure when the change took place but it's been that way for quite a while.
