I have sailed on many cruises with no formal nights; most recently this past week. I always enjoy it. I take a couple of sports coats and a couple of ties and wear them on about half of the nights.

Now, this doesn't mean that I tolerate slobs in the dining room. No jeans no shorts no t-shirts no tennis shoes....should be the norm. Informal nights, where jackets are required, should also still be regularly scheduled. In fact, it might be worthwhile to have men always wear a coat with or without a tie.

If cruise lines would just enforce their already published dress codes....we wouldn't be discussing this so often. As Kuki mentioned recently, this is also why cruise lines crack down on bringing alcohol on board; some of us ruined it for the rest. If we would just be reasonable....
