Dear Irish Shark,
I am sorry if my posting this question offended you. I have only been a member of this forum one month. Therefore, I could not have read the "other 100 times this topic was posted." I have never cruised before & simply had a question about something, just like everyone else here. I was not trying to get "approval" or "not follow code" on proper dress. It was not realized that a dark suit was suggested until after we had already bought my husband a light one. That is the reason I asked this question. I was prepared to buy a dark suit if needed. Next time you cruise, come by & say hi. I will be sitting next to the handsome man in his light suit!
