We just returned from a 12 day on Celebrity. We attended the first Formal Night (had to, I dragged a tux 3500 miles!). On the 2d formal, both my wife & I had cotracted a cold and did not attend, having our dinner in our cabin. Later, feeling a bet better, we decided to attend the stage show. We were not allowed to enter the theater as we were not in formal attire!
We did not have this treatment on 3 previous cruises. We want to find cruises that are not so hung up on pomp! Thus the question.
