I don't feel thatI am being arrogant and conteptuous by not attending the formal functions on the boat. My situation is different, and therefore my actions will be different. As far as booking on another line, I could do that, but unfortuantely I am going to be onboard as the result of a gift trip to Bermuda. Somebody else has booked and paid for the trip for me. It would be more rude for me to turn down the passage which has been bought and paid for by somebody else. If I was paying for my own trip I would go on NCL and be free to dress without a tux or dark suit. That is simply not an option. There are exceptions to every rule, and on my trip. I am going to be an exception and avoid formal attire.
