I would look at Windjammer Barefoot Cruises.

I would look at a barge cruise. Relaxation or you can participate in exciting knitting, crocheting, backgammon or dominoes! But most importantly, NO formal nights.

Looks very limited. Why not just take a main stream cruise and avail yourselves of the casual option. All of our RCCL cruises had alternative dinners in the Windjammer.

Additionally, so long as you look nice (maybe a jacket and a nice shirt), I don't think you will be thrown out of the dining room - or should feel uncomfortable being there.

Norweigan Cruise Lines offers "Freestyle Dining". You have the option of dressing for formal nights, or not.

Windstar Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line and Windjammer.
The very best is Windstar. NCL is below par in terms of food and service. Windjammer is fun, young and has very tiny cabins.

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.
Thanks, Carl
