That is what I was expecting having read comments here and at other boards, but certainly not what we saw. Like I said, we had early seating, and maybe the better dressed gentlemen came out after dark! I had also read in the HAL site that passengers were encourage to maintain the dress code throughout the evening. I was please do read that; but what I found after dinner (in the casinos, at least) is that pax had returned to their daytime more casual attire).
