I wasn't aware we were arguing just discussing how things are looked at differently, but if you want to just say I am thick & stomp off then that's up to you I suppose.

The change in dress code for Blu is now on the US web site along with a rather obvious proofreading mistake under Casual wear, gentlemen line...

I could not agree more! If a person really wants to do the tux and gown thing, nothing is stopping them. I myself would like to wear shorts and T's at dinner, but will compromise with slacks and blouse. I will laugh at your "see me, I am beautiful" clothing as much as you will at my shorts and T's. So how about we all agree to disagree and each wear what we want.

The point is I think, the cruise line sets a dress code & it is polite having agreed to go on the cruise, to respect it. Maybe we have to agree to disagree on this as some are unable to see the point. I wish those cruiselines who specify a dresscode would either stick to it & uphold it or forget it altogether.

But the dress code now only applies to the MDR, so as long as someone doesn't dine in the MDR, they can wear Smart Casual everywhere else. So really there it's only MDR that has to be upheld.

Hi Trackypup - how are you?

On my recent Celebrity cruise, smart casual was an acceptable dress code in MDR. Some guys started out wearing a suit, left the MDR and changed into smart casual and returned to MDR - no comment. Those gentlemen wearing DJs only did so to please the other half.

The only people who get bothered about dress codes are to be found on cruise boards - albeit in my limited experience. JMHO

I think that is a waste of time & pointless, the idea is for the ship to be formal not just some who dine in the MDR, like a theme? it is ridiculous, to me anyway, to have some dressed to the nines in the theatre next to people in t-shirts & shorts. The dress code on P&O UK ships, I was told anyway, was if you don't come up to code you can only eat in the buffet & use the outside bars, inside areas are for transit only. In reality about the only person who observed this was me until my wife went ashore to buy me a jacket for about $150 (left jacket behind due to luggage restrictions...mistake!)

I think the idea of the entire ship being formal on formal nights went out years ago. On Celebrity you wouldn't be allowed in the theatre in shorts, but you could certainly be dressed pretty casually and yes, be sat next to someone in a Tux.

Interesting, because on say P&O, I would say that 95% of people observe the formal dress code, & 95% of the men wear a dinner suit/Tuxedo for the whole evening...a few ties & jackets get removed later on. On my two Celebrity cruises the formal code seemed well observed too. Cunard being almost 100%. I say again though, either enforce it or do away with it as far as I am concerned.

The English love dressing up - the rest of the world has moved on

On my Celebrity cruise the 2 gentlemen sho changed out of suits were English BTW

Having said that I would say that the number of men in tuxes/suits was quite high - 50% - highest percentage of any cruise I have been on. However as soon as dinner was over it was all change

It used to be that way on Celebrity, most of my early cruises very few did not follow the formal dress code on formal nights and stayed that way late into the evening. You might see people changing around midnight and going to the casino....

Actually, one night my son spilled a pretty large glass of soda on me during dinner and I had to change afterwards. I felt very much out of place.
