He'll be fine! As long as he has a jacket or a tie, it'll be fine. Many times when I cruise I don't want to hassle with the weight of a jacket, so I'll just wear a tie and even on Holland America or Celebrity, which are a bit more formal than RCCL, I've never had any problems.
So tell him to relax and enjoy the cruise!
