Actually, you have two options if you don't wish to dress for dinner.
>> 1. You can order the entire main dining room menu through room service and have it served in your cabin, where you can eat it dressed however you please. Nonetheless, there's a pretty stiff surcharge for this service.
>> 2. You can dine at the buffet restaurant (known as the "Horizon Court" on most Princess ships). The buffet restaurant is always a designated "casual" area. Nonetheless, the dinner menu at the buffet restaurant is not necessarily the same as the main dining room and the service is buffet style.
But, again, your options for entertainment will be quite limited because you won't be dressed properly to go to the theater, the show lounge, the cabaret (on ships that have one), the casino, or any of the special events that take place on these evenings. You are not going on a cruise spend the evenings in your cabin watching "pay-per-view" movies or reruns of old television programs on your stateroom television, are you?
