I have just returned from a HAL cruise where the 'formal' dress code was largely ignored - even in MDR!

As I say, smart casual is my norm. I felt overdressed! BTW with my figure, I can't wear shorts or jeans and if I dress up - I feel like a sugar plum fairy!

I choose a vessel based on itinerary size and vessel size - NOT on dress code.

The Azamara cruise lines seem to operate very happily without a dress code but unfortunately they don't sail everywhere I want to visit.
