Default Dinner attire

I will be cruising the Fascination Sept.13-17. Can anyone tell me the required dinner attire for the dining rooms (not the Captain's Dinner)? What about for breakfast and lunch, are just shorts and tshirts ok? I'm not crazy about dressing up, thats why I am curious about their rules on attire. :-)

I found shorts and tshirts to be fine for breakfast and dinner even in the dining room. Kaki's and golf shirt/ dress shirt for men and capris and a nice top with dressy casual shoes for women were most appropriate for dinner except on formal night when my husband wore a suit and I wore a dress.

No shorts in the dining room at dinner. You can wear them for lunch and breakfast. I usually wear sleeveless dresses for dinner. Husband wears khakis and polo shirt.
You can wear casual pants or nice capris(not jean material). Carnival is not as fancy as other cruise lines so you shouldnt have to go out and spend a bunch of money unless you have nothing to start with. Good time to shop the clearance racks for nice summery dresses. Also good time to get formal dresses at great prices.

Sun dresses are nice for dinner time not as binding as capris if you eat too much.

I recently returned from Carnival Destiny to the Southern Carribean. I too was worried about the dining attire; no sweat. Each night you eat in the fornal dining room there are certain loose "requirements." They advise no jeans, or flip-flop type sandals. On the formal nights, on the other hand, the passangers went all out. Some had on suits, and i even saw a girl wearing a prom dress. You said you don't like to dress up- So just be comfortable! When you eat buffet (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight) nearly all attire is acceptable. The outfits ranged from full beach wear (ie swimsuit and flip-flops) to everyday lounge wear. Honestly, I noticed that other people aboard the ship are more concerned with themselves, and won't pick appart your choice of dress. Be comfy and have fun!!
