No tank tops basically. I usually go in with shorts and a Polo shirt on. No fancy dressing. Very laid back in the morning and it's open seating too. The omlettes are the best

Hmm, Everythime I have gone for breakfast on any Carnival ship I am wearing shorts and a tank top!!! I wouldn't dare think of wearing a shirt with sleeves when the temp outside is already at or near 30C!!!! I have had no problems with tank tops/shorts for breakfast in the dining room!

I love the eggs benedict, and yes, the omelets are awesome!!! The waffles and pancakes are yummy too!!!!

I go to the dining room for the eggs benedict, but honestly the breakfast is the only time I ENJOY the buffet. I hate it for lunch or dinner, but breakfast is yummo, and you can get what you want and not have to wait on others They have pretty much the same food, infact i've had visions of them running to the lido to get my food in the dining room at breakfast lol

Actually I should of said for the guys to stay away from tank tops. I see ladies in tank tops at breakfast all the time. Not like they're going to kick you out But like I said it's totally different than dinner time.

It has been my opinion that breakfast in the dining room is never a great meal. That goes for every line I have sailed. Food is soso, service is slower than other meals, etc. BUT I always try it once on every cruise. I also always go back to the buffet.

I've seen men in tank tops in the dining room at breakfast. I'm sure they will let you in, in most anything at breakfast. (within reason!) I always enjoy breakfast in the dining room. I tend to eat less if I go there, as opposed to the buffet line, where I need to try everything!

There is usually a special of the morning in the dining room. I have enjoyed these on every cruise.

Good morning Laura
I like the Buffet and the dining room for breakfast. The dining room is better to me because its less hectic.

The wife and I usually wear T-shirt , Short Pants, and our walking shoes. Its a very casual atmosphere.

Happy Sailing to all;
David

We also like the dinning room for breakfast. It is very casual. It is open seating, but you can ask for your dinner waitress or waiter. We did this on most days and it was really nice.

We ate in the dining room several morning and there was all kinds of dress. I don't think they allow swim suits, but shorts, tanks, tees were being worn. It might be cooler in there, so maybe just a light shirt over a tank top with be good. The food was very good. I also enjoy the buffet for all meals.
