I truly find that hard to believe....
I personally have seen someone turned away from the show on a formal night because they were not appropriately dress. The daily does state the evening dress code is required (Celebrity's bold) in all public areas except for the casual dining boulevard. Will they turn you away? - probably not. Could they turn you away? - possibly.
We cruise Celebrity for its ambiance and service. Before our first cruise, our TA asked us a lot of questions about our likes and dislikes and based on our answers recommended Celebrity. Celebrity is quite upfront about its dress codes and even give suggested dress. They do not state it as a must in the info but say it is requested. If a friend has a party and requests a certain dress, you would follow it. Requested dress is a polite way of saying what type of dress is appropriate.
It is only in the past couple of years that Celebrity has listed the word required in the daily. In the past it was just listed as evening dress code.
