The issue for us is "How much to Pack". We travel from Northen VA to FL most of the time for a cruise and are luggage restricted. For example do you bring 12 dress shirts for a 12-day cruise, how many dinner gowns, how many suit jackets, etc.. I know some wear the same clothes most of the time but I'm not a fan of this. This is a vacation and the cruiselines should not expect everyone to bring tons of good clothes. Maybe way back when, when cruising was considered a luxury and only the wealthy could afford it. These are different times and a cruise is just another vacation choice. My 2 cents!!
And yes I know there is a buffet where dress-up is not requried but so what.
