Officially shorts are not allowed in the DR at dinner (casual evenings) but the only ship that I've seen that enforces the rule is the Island Princess. On our last Grand trip they closed their eyes to anyone with shorts on and there were at least a dozen guys or so on any particular evening.
Princess food has always been slightly better than Carnival but in the last few years Carnival food has improved considerable to where they're very close.
They do renew vows but I've never inquired about it.
