I totally disagree. If the ship isn't going to enforce their own rules then they are basically saying the dress code is a guideline. If you consistently ignore rule breakers, disobedient dressers or whatever you want to call it, then you're condoning it by your lack of action.
And I know you're going to respond all about "Respect" but as long as your neat and tidy, the cruise line seems to think you're just fine and I'd be willing to bet if you phoned Celebrity, Princess, Carnival, HAL most of the mainstream lines and said, I want to sail your ship but I don't own a tux or a suit they say, don't worry, come along and give us your $$$ anyway and wear a trousers and a shirt.
