That is Princess's stated policy.
As others have noted, enforcement of that policy often is completely lacking and some "socially challenged" individuals invariably do disregard it. The fact that Princess's "Personal Choice Cruising" campaign about five or six years ago seemed to draw a lot more such individuals to Princess, creating a real need for enforcement of the dress policy, was one of the major frustrations with Princess that led me to switch to another line (Celebrity). Nonetheless, I'm not aware of any official change to that policy.
