Thanks Frank-in-CA -just makes 'common' sense - why do they call it 'common'? - it ain't but I wish it was---Just curious but I guess CA stands for California - I lived in Turtle Rock in Irvine, CA for 4 yrs - luved the place & the 'folk's there too-so very charming, good looking & awful smart (recognize anyone u know?)!!! Happy cruisin'!!
Ahhh nice area there and thanks for the 'giggle' - Californians do tend to 'like' their movie stars but running things.... pleaseeeee!!! Got to admire Arnolds ambition though - 'raw'!!! Happy cruisin'!
Actually he has accomplished a lot that people didn't think could be done. It doesn't hurt that he brought us a pretty savvy first lady either. I've been impressed by what he's accomplished so far. Maybe I had low expectations?
Got it right there. It's a prove it to me 'thing' and so far so good - hope it keeps up. U are on the $ so to speak with CAs first lady - good connections but Arnold planned all that...smart fella - got to admire that! Happy cruisin'1
While I haven't been quite as far around the block as either Jerry or Cruisecrazy, i have learned in 57 years that rules are made for the benefit of all. I must be in the "sandwich generation", however, since both Jerry and virtually everyone born into our culture (or lack of it) post-Eisenhower think that the fabric of our society should be subordinate to their whims and fetishes. Rules are such a lovely buffer to anarchy,
dontcha think, Cruisecrazy? Jerry doesn't, until someone drives across his front yard or otherwise decides to do as THEY please. 'Wonder if Jerry has an opinion on chair hogs? If his stance on dress codes is any indication, I would guess he puts his book on the chair, grunts a few "oinks" and toddles off to complain about the undisciplined kids around the pool. If you don't like speed limits, take a cab. If you don't like dress codes, vacation at a nude beach.
I can't imagine going through life without a single dark suit. Since your lovely bride enjoys dressing up, has it ever occurred to you that once in a while she might like to appear in public with an escort that does the same? What do you wear to weddings and funerals, fatigues and jump boots? And speaking of funerals, you might as well invest in at least a blue blazer and an understated maroon tie...cuz you're gonna luck laughable displayed at your own viewing sartorially splendid in a sweatshirt and a pair of speedos. But I'm sure your wife will dress for the occasion.
'Looking forward to sailing on the Summit in October...and already trying to decide what to pack.
Since I started this post I figured I would tell you all what I found out to be the case on my cruise. My husband did take along his sport jacket and wore it for both informal nights. I would say about 80% were dressed accordingly.
However, I was shocked to see there were a few men and women who were way under dressed. I saw one man on the second formal night with a dark shirt, dress pants and no jacket or tie. I saw demin skirts, and even one younger person (under 18) with a pair of sweat shorts on in the dining room.
Bermuda.... Crown Dynasty 6/2000

Looking forward to my next cruise.... 6/2005
I was away for a few days to New Orleans (great fun) & see this topic is still around. I imagine that those going on Summit will find the "code" followed. There is so much room for variations I do not see why anyone has a problem with the guidelines... Anyone wanting to stay around in a sleeveless undershirt & ripped cut off shorts may consider that cruising is not for you as you will be the odd duck & not very appreciated by any tablemates unfortunate to be given the pleasure of your company!
