Me: The prescribed evening dress is always "casual" if the ship is in port in the evening. The day of the week does not matter. (boldface added)
You: Sorry Norm, but your answer is not altogether accurate. I was on the Millennium in the Caribbean last month and two of our port days were specified as Informal dress not Casual. (boldface and emphasis in original)
And what time did the ship leave port on those days?
It appears that you missed the words in my earlier post that I set in boldface in this post.
We left St. Maarten at 1:00 a.m. (arrived 8:00 a.m. Thursday, departed 1:00 a.m. Friday)
So we were in port in the evening on both stops.
Both evenings were designated as Informal.
Wow. A port of call with a 7:00 PM departure is borderline for an "informal" evening, but "informal" dress when the ship is in port past 8:00 PM is extremely unusual. In twenty cruises, including seven on Celebrity, I have never encountered any dress other than "casual" on such an evening.
Not that "informal" dress is any big deal -- we gents just put on a sport coat over what would otherwise be appropriate attire for a "casual" evening.
