We were on the Dawn in April, capri pants were as dressey as we got. My husband work slacks and pull over shirt. No problem. Alot of people got dressed up, but I would prefer not to. There were no restrictions on the dining rooms that I am aware of. We did not dine in the restaurants that you had to pay. I preferred to save my money for gambling. lol. We are considering go back on the Dawn in Sept. Have a great time. There were alot of kids of various ages, there seems to be plenty for them to do.
We had a great time on the Dawn. Ship is hard to navigate, it is laid out funny, but if that's the worst thing, then all in all we had great time.
