Default Supper Club - Dress Code?

I just reserved the supper club for one of our at sea nights and i was wondering what the dress code. Obviously if it is a formal night then we will dress formal. If it isn't a formal night is what we would wear to the regular dining room okay to wear?

You will find on Carnival the dress code will be a lot less than other lines however officially the code is that which is for that day however since this is a first class experience I have always preferred a coat with a tie being optional however you will see everything just as in the main dining room,

and I would tell hubby to wear loose fitting pants! The elastic couldn't stretch enough by the time we got out of there!

Regardless of what night it is I would recomend at least a sports coat, dress shirt and slacks for the Supper Club. We did the Emerald Room twice on our last cruise and thats what I wore both nights. As did all of the other men that were there on those evenings. Some had ties, some didnt. But treat it as if you were going to any upscale restaurant, ie Mortons, Capital Grille, etc. Have a great trip.

I didn't know you could reserve the Supper Club in advance. I thought you had to wait until on board. How do you reserve it in advance?

We did the supper club on the Miracle last year. While we were dressed formal because we renewed our vows for our 25th I did see a gentleman at another table wearing a dress shirt and dress slacks. Everyone else there that evening did have suits and ladies had anything from nice pantsuits to dresses.

Though they encourage folks to dress up a bit for the Supper Club, I have seen people there several times in casual clothing, and even sweat suits.

Why would you come to a nice restaurant in sweat clothes. Guess my question would be is this your dress code in your home town.

Unfortunately Carnival has kind of "done this" to themselves. They chose to eliminate formal nights, and allow shorts in their dining rooms on casual nights... basically eliminating any dress codes... no doubt catering to what they felt their passengers wanted.

Though I do think it's better than what they did before... have dress codes with no enforcement.

I always think it odd on ships when the waiters are dressed better than those they're serving.

Guess those on other lines like the more formal evenings and even there they have gone to a more relaxed code however they are listening to their loyal cruisers. Totally agree with your comment on waiters better dressed better than those who are being served.Did notice on the 49 day Splendor cruise the dress was much more formal and am sure this was somewhat because of an older group and also the length of the cruise.

Re. the question about booking in advance, just go to the Carnival website. Your booking number will take you to a page where you can do the FunPass, print out doc's and luggage tags, but also reserve shore excursions and the supper club.

Default Supper Club dress code

Here's a sample of a card you get when you make a reservation in the supper club.

NOTE: Dress Code and what is not permitted. Also, on formal nights the dress code is "Cruise Elegant".

This is just the information I need! Thanks for posting ...also regarding dressing for dinner...Is it okay to dress up nicely (elegant) for dinner every night or is that too much?

And how can you decide what night to choose the supper club? DH and I are booked on Conquest in October and want to try it out

The wait is now down to 4 months woohoo!!

Dress up as much and as often as you please. You may be one of only a few on the casual nights, but who cares. I sometimes dress up more often than others because I don't have many opportunities to wear some of my cruise clothes. Living in Florida, dress styles in general are much more casual than I am used to. I'm okay with that, but I hate for some of my pretty stuff to feel lonely and neglected.

Very useful thread. We are seriously thinking of book a Carnival cruise. Looking at various possibilities at present by due to their policy of allowing infants, it looks as if Carnival is a favourite.

Yes, we wanted to join the super club also. Both my husband and I have a tendency to overdress, especially taking into account that we're in our 20s but I feel very much like you. I love the opportunity to wear pretty clothes. He's pretty comfortable in a tux also. We miss the days when he studied at Oxford and we had plenty of opportunity to dress up. I was a bit worried though to come across as a right snob. It seems that formal dress is fine then.
