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'.
Very well said! We rarely participate in Formal Night anymore and we gladly stay out of the MDR...but I'll be darned if you're going to confine me to my cabin for the evening.
