I can't recommend wearing anything that is not within the cruise lines' dress guidelines aboard ship (except, of course, on an occasion such as Halloween when costumes are in order). I have seen staff turn passengers away from dining rooms, show rooms, and other events because they were not wearing the proper attire.
Obviously, the key is to choose a cruise line that matches your personal style and taste. If you want to wear jeans and "T" shirts to dinner, book your cruise on a line on which jeans and "T" shirts are acceptable evening attire rather than on a line which explicitly states that prescribes a "smart casual" or "country club casual" standard of evening dress.
