Hi Guys and gals,
I had a question about the number of smart casual nights on our cruise, so I e-mailed Royal Caribbean and this was their reply:
Ok, guys, are you going to pack that sports jacket?? We were seriously considering leaving that at home??
The suggested evening attire for all guests regardless of age is as follows:
Seven and Eight Night Cruises
Two formal nights
Two smart casual nights
Three or four casual nights
Casual: sun dresses or slacks and blouses for women; sport shirts and trousers for men.
Smart Casual: dresses or pantsuit for women; jackets for men.
Formal: cocktail dresses for women; suits and ties, or tuxedos for men.
Shorts, T-shirts, and bathing attire are not considered appropriate attire in the dining rooms at dinner. Casual dress dining is available nightly in the Windjammer Cafe.
Thank you for choosing Royal Caribbean International.
To Y2C - smart casual is defined as: comfortable clothing while studing Statistics & Trig! (just kidding of course). While on the Radiance we found that most people dressed pretty nice to the dining room but comfortable. Sun dresses, nice outfits. Men were in khaki/shirts. Formal nites most were dressed VERY well. Some suit & ties & many tux/dinner jackets. We rented for Mark. It was nice-all in the room for us w/the shoes & 2 shirts for the 2 formal nites. Sure beat dragging ties/jackets/dress shirts & good dress shoes in the luggage - had to make room for the swimsuits & all the wonderful liquor, etc we brought home! The one thing we didn't get to find out about before we left was what theme nites they were having. Well actually they had all the following theme nites on the 7-day cruise: Toga nite, country/western nite, 50-60's sock hop nite, disco nite. They had Toga's for us & there was other stuff so again we didn't have to drag anything for theme nites with us & we had a lot of fun.
