The point of my post is not to argue whether or not formal nights are a good thing. The point of the post is making rules and then not enforcing them. I don't like it when the government does it and I don't like it when the cruise lines do it.

On a recent cruise the shore excursion department put notices in the bulletin that the departure lounge was very crowded, and no one would be admitted until the time printed on their ticket. We had a excursion that met at 7:15 so we arrived at the lounge at 7:10 prepared to wait. There was a sign on the door that said, "Lounge opens at 7:15". Yet the door was open and the lounge was filling up fast. When they make rules, make a big point of publicizing them, and then ignore them it annoys me. I will follow rules, or I will play freestyle, but I need to know which!

If you don't like formal nights, then perhaps you would enjoy NCL. We cruised on the QMII and really enjoyed her. Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks. But everybody, no matter what their preference, should follow the rules, and every authority, government or cruise line, should enforce their rules.
Most of the "rules" that Princess states are pretty much ignored by a lot of people & the dress thing is probably the least of them.
We've done NCL any although I do like them we've built up our cruises with Princess & for the money & the additional perks we prefer them.
