I'm wondering if HAL mislead me... I sent an e-mail to them asking about their dress code and saying that we didn't like to dress up. The reply was that there were only a couple formal nights, and we could eat in the Lido if we didn't want to dress up. Fishing around their website this afternoon, I see that jeans (and I'm thinking nice jeans with a collared shirt) aren't allowed in any public areas in the evening.
Have you had any experience with HAL (Sun/Dawn) in Alaska? It's not too late for us to change our mind and go Princess (deposit's due tomorrow), but I liked the bigger rooms on HAL. (I'm also wondering if you can sit in a chair in the standard outside staterooms and see out the window.)
Thanks, wise ones!
