Default acceptable attire.

I have been on a few cruise and I was wondering if jeans would be okay in the dining room. I am going on the Carnival Triumph. Thanks!

The daily "dress" code is for dinner attire and jeans is a no-no. They are fine for breakfast and lunch either in the dining room or the buffet area. A few pairs of docker type pants are fine for dinner in the dining room on casual evenings.

Here we go again. I gree with you , Donna, 100%. I took this stand a few months ago and was chastised by nearly everyone. It seems that most people think that their personal wishes supersede any suggestion of a dress code. Dockers and a nice shirt, not a t-shirt, are fine except on the formal nights when a suit is more appropriate.

Thank you. I have been on only one carnival cruise and seemed ike eveyone was more laid back. Like for instance I saw a family of 4 in the dining room wearing hoodies and jeans and a woman wearing only a batheing suit and no shoes going through the buffet line. On Royal Caribbean they did not allow you in the buffet without a cover up and shoes.

Just a thank you would have been fine, no need to stoke the fire.

Jeans are allowed except formal nights and even then I saw everything from a Tux to jeans with a cowboy shirt and bolero tie..

Just keep your attire clean and neat..Dress up for formal night..Relax and have fun..
