I don't pay any attention to the P & O or Cunard boards as I don't sail them but dress code seems to have gone rapidly downhill on Celebrity according to recent reviews. Somepeople that post here seem to be in complete denial (I'm not talking about you
) but recent posts on other boards are saying 10% of men in Tuxes and around 50% in suits, that leaves a lot under "other attire"
Cruise lines have to evolve. Some of the UK based one's probably not so much, the brits seem to enjoy their formal evenings (I'm not bashing, I am a brit). North American based lines are seeing a rapid decline in formal dress.
