Default Sleeveless blouse at dinner and formal wear?

I am a little confused about the dress code for women during dinner. Can I wear a sleeveless blouse or dress, with dress pants or skirt, to dinner each night, even on formal night if it is a formal top? Or will I have to have a shawl to cover my arms?

you'll be absolutely fine. A lot of my formal gowns are sleeveless. I think they're referring to men's shirts in the dress code.

Many women bring a shawls to prevent chills from the air conditioning.

Sleeveless won't be a problem-a lot of women wear halter top or strapless gowns. I don't anymore only because I seem to have grown wings on my upper arms And Trip is right-have a shawl or stole with you-the dining rooms can be pretty chilly.

I'm a little confused by your post. I don't understand why you would wear pants with a dress.

>> For "smart casual" evenings, you can wear a top with either slacks or a skirt or, if you prefer, a (casual) dress. On Celebrity, there seem to be some ladies wearing cocktail dresses even on the "smart casual" evenings. Gents wear a shirt [/i]with collar and sleaves[/i] and slacks on the "smart casual" evenings.

>> For the "formal" evenings, either a formal dress, which can be either full length or cocktail length, or a formal pant suit is in order. Gents wear either "black tie" (tuxedo or dinner jacket outfit) or a suit and tie for the "formal" evenings.

If you wear a sleeveless top or dress, it would be good to have a shawl or a sweater, or a jacket on the "formal" evenings, in case you happen to draw a seat located right under an air conditioning vent in the dining room, the theater, or a lounge.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.
