Default Dress requirements

We have booked the Pride to the Mexican Riviera at the end of July. We are used to packing for the dress requirements of Celebrity, which is quite upscale as far as formal and semi-formal nights. I know there is two formal nights on the 7 day cruise, but what are the dress codes for the other 5 nights? Will a Coat and tie be neded for any of the remaining nights?

On Carnival the non formal nights are all casual. No coat and tie is required. You will see a lot of polo shirts and dockers as well as an occasional pair of jeans and t-shirts but mostly polo shirts and dockers. They do request no jeans and t-shirts but not everyone follows that.

no shorts or tshirts allowed in the main dining room. You can
wear shorts at the buffet if you dont want to dress up

I am trying tp pack for an upcoming cruise and I am now quite confused re: the dress code for evening dining. Am I correct in assuming that ladies have to wear dresses or skirts EVERY night on a Carnival cruise? I thought this was only expected at the 2 formals night???? Please advise.

There is a code for the main dining room. Not everyone follows it. You do not have to wear a skirt or dress every night. If you have a nice pants suit or, even, nice pants and top, you will do fine. Believe me, you will still shine compared to some (a small few) who enter the dining room. Even on a formal night, you can get by with a "dressy" pants outfit. (And thos small few will still look the same, but you are not with them and who cares?).

It's really pretty simple. Formal night is formal night. The rest of the nights you are eating in what on land could be considered an upscale restaurant. You are eating a 5 course meal every night, with 2 waiters, china, silver and linens. It's not Chili's or Olive Garden.

Dress as you would to dine in a similar establishment on land and you'll be fine.

Will you see folks dressed "down" - yep.
