Totally agree with you however they must not worry as much on Celebrity and Holland about losing customers and as you well know Holland owned by Carnival.would like to see Carnival run a survey on dress code to determine what the majority really wants. Not that long ago I did this on Holland and the response was totally in keeping the formal night and dress formality. Just a thought.
