Lisa, what a refreshing moderate approach - I love it. BTW, I rarely dine in MDR - too noisy and service is too slow for me esp at large tables.
What irritates me is that some posters are 'pushing' for making 'formal' dress compulsory for all areas of the vessel on 'formal' nights and their comments that cruisers who elect to dress informally are rude! What happened to live and let live?
As far as I am aware, dress codes are recommendations and not compulsory and anyone purchasing a cruise does not enter into a contractual obligation to dress 'formally'.
