If you still have it, please check your "Princess Patter" for the first day of the cruise and see what it says.
If so, this would be a major change in Princess's policy. In the past, the block on dress codes in the "Princess Patter" for the first day always stated, usually in boldface, that "[t]he prescribed evening dress applies throughout the ship after 6:00 PM, except in designated casual areas."
Of course, enforcement was often lacking so there were always some people who would "dress down" after dinner....
