Default Are pants required in dining room for all meals?

Are pants required in the dining room for all meals. Obviously on formal nights but what about all other times. Can you wear a decent pr of casual shorts?

You can wear shorts in the dining room for breakfast and lunch but not at dinner time. At least docker type pants should be worn at dinner time. Khaki's and a polo are fine for the non-formal nights.

The cruise lines prefer NO shorts in the dining room for dinner. Not likely that they'd turn you away at the door... but I have seen it happen.

Jimmy,
As the other posters mentioned, shorts are fine for breakfast and lunch in the dinning room. They do ask that you don't come for lunch in your swimwear either, so just keep that in mind and enjoy your cruise!

When I first saw the subject, I was wondering what kind of cruisers you thought we were! I would hope you'd wear pants! I guess the length was the issue

Shorts are not allowed in the dining room for the evening meals. If you wish to wear shorts to dinner you should plan on eating on the Lido deck in alternative dining.

Does anyone know if Carnival allows people to wear jeans on non-formal nights? Thanks!

Debbie, jeans are not supposed to be approprate clothing for the evening meals but you will see some that are not 'blue' jeans but black or tan or something like that. I have also seen someone wearing blue jeans every now and then, but it isn't really proper at all.
