Default Dress for Dinner on Land?

We are doing a land/cruise tour in a few weeks and I am in the process of deciding what to pack. I've been told that Alaska is casual but I'm not sure what that means. Can you wear jeans to dinner at the Princess lodges or do you have to dress up? Anyone who has done the land tour have an answer?

Thanks!

At the lodges- jeans will be the norm. Be sure to budget 50% more than you would at home for meals. This way you will have a cushion. Get away from the lodges if you can- the McKinley you are trapped. But shuttle into Talkeetna and try the Roadhouse for lunch. (plan activities there, 50 miles one way)

The Talkeetna Roadhouse is a place my wife and I never miss. I was born in Alaska and I've been going there for hmmm.... 48 years? I think.

I have NEVER been able to eat a full order of pancakes.... and that's two of them.

I've returned to Alaska just about every two to four years to visit and off we go to Talkeetna.

Jeans/sweaters/shorts will do just fine.

Yep the pancake is over the edges of the plate. Just had the raspberry and walnut- half order in March.
