Default Dockers and Docker Shorts

The wife and I are stumbling on this topic.
Can someone out there can shead a little light on this?

We are on the Carnival Triumph in Feb 2003, I do know that there are two formal nights for dinner. I already have my dinner jacket, 2 shirts, and 2 ties.

What about the other (non-formal) dinner nights and the clubs on board. I would imagine that Docker pants would be fine. But what about Docker Shorts? My wife thinks that Docker shorts are still shorts and they would not be allowed in the dinning rooms.


How cold does it get at night on the decks during Feb? Should we pack sweaters?

Hi J&J,
Yes, shorts are shorts and not allowed in the dinning room for dinner, breakfast and lunch would be no problem. I'd stick with the docker pants for the casual nights and if there is a semi-formal night that would be dress pants and sports coat, but check and see if there is a night like that.

Also, in the evenings it can get a little chilly when the sun sets, so be sure to pack a sweater if you are out and about on deck in the evening. Be sure to check out the ski, have never seen it so dark and so many stars, have fun!

They ask that you not wear shorts in the dining rooms, and some ships ask that you not wear shorts after 6:00 p.m. anywhere on the ship. I would think Docker shorts are considered shorts. I would pack a sweater for the evening venture on the deck -- you do have a cool breeze, and although we always cruise in February or March and I really haven't needed a sweater yet, if you are "cold natured" you may want one.

Enjoy your cruise.
