Don't be discouraged by these boards. If you cruise during the summer, you are likely to be in good company. If your cruise is during the fall or winter, you may find yourself in the midst of this attitude, maybe not. Two years ago, I took a Celebrity cruise in Feb with my daughters, there were alot of older (nice) folks, that is to be expected, considering the time of year. We took a Celebrity this past June, and found many REAL people. The type you are seeing here generally keep to themselves.... Except for the few that flag down the maitre 'D to let them know someone is out of dresscode. I think that is rare, and Celebrity surely knows how to deal with it.
