Good try Rick, but , nope! I personally think a jean skirt would be a tad casual( even for casual night) but I don't mind if someone else wore one. I do wonder if denim wouldn't be a bit " heavey" for a cruise( except Alaskan)!?
Kara i will agree with Donna even though you have some dressy shorts - they still are shorts and are not approprite attire for dinner in the dining rooms even on casual nights(capris on the other hand, would be fine)- ok for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.
yup i went on a celebrity cruise with a jean skirt. it's fine
and yes whoever pointed out about the whole denim-on-alaskan-cruises... yup most people my age wore denim skirts. it's pretty cold there!
however, maybe you might want to consider wearing a longer denim skirt and pack your shorter one for a different occasion.
I'm glad to see that pg is the fashion police. Pretty quick to say "Nope". I do not wear jeans on a ship myself but if it is okay for women to wear denim then is okay for men. Don't get me started on how men have to wear suits or a tux when women can wear a so called fancy dress with no sleeves, no stockings and thong underwear and are considered dressed formal. The whole formal thing is stupid in my opinion I don't care what anyone says. Packing an entire suitcase for a couple of dinners is ridiculas. On all my 12 cruises on formal nights the men sweated and the women froze.
There, I 've had my rant so carry on comparing your shorts.
I agree with Rick. I don't wear jeans either, but a nice pair of jean slacks should be okay for men on casual nights. I also think coats and ties are stuffy and uncomfortable, but I wear them because I must on formal nights... They disappear very quickly and are replaced with dress slacks and a nice sports shirt after dinner.
The show room and casino are just too hot to continue to wesr a jacket. Men's formal wear must have been invented by some evil queen in past ages.
Not the fashion police Rick so don't get your knickers in a knot! I did say that I thought a jean skirt was " a tad too casual" but I also said I didn't care if someone else wore one. The question was about a SKIRT made from denim, not a pair of JEANS. The" guideline" is NO jeans in the dining room. I didn't make the rule.Personally I still think denim is too hot and heavey for the Caribbean, lightwieght clothes take up less room in a suitcase also.
I do think you could wear jean skirt in the dining room Rick, so as noted please shave legs!
I couldn't agree more Paul, I wear a suit on formal nights only because I have to, not because I want to. I have found that even changing after dinner gets glares from those in after dinner shows who think formal wear should be worn all night. Its so sad that what I wear impacts on so many others.
As for my knickers in a knot p.g., I just don't wear them on formal nights. At least part of me is comfortable.
Next cruise I think I will try the jean skirt idea, sort of like a kilt, and you know what the scottish men wear underneath their kilts. Ahhh, those warm Caribbean breezes!!!
You know, I agree with you men. I personally enjoy dressing up, but my husband and 3 sons act like it will kill them to wear a tie. We are taking our sons who are 30, 24 and 18. This is our first cruise and I don't want to look out of place by being under or over dressed. I think women feel like Cinderella but most men detest having to get all dressed up while they are on vacation. Sure hope to persuade them to take a suit along. I hate to eat alone!!
If I can tolerate wearing a suit and tie on a couple of nights, I am sure they can also. Eating in the dining room is worth putting up with a bit of inconvenience. However, the minute the dinner ends, off comes the suit on on goes a comfortable sport shirt and slacks!
When can you wear jeans?? That's all we ever wear. Do you have to eat in the dining room every night or can we eat else where? There are only two formal wear nights in which we have to wear suits, etc? So the other nights in the dinging room are always casual dress? What kind of food to they offer in the dining room verses a less formal eating area?
I say unless it is formal night (and you are on Carnival) wear the jeans as long as they are nice and put a good polo shirt with it, that's what my husband wears and he isn't alone. They won't throw you out of the dining room.
I myself wear casual on regular nights and then semi dressy for formal. But if you opt not to eat in the main dinig room, Lord knows you will never go hungry on a cruise ship.
Anyone have suggestions for attaire on a Princess cruise?? 1st time will be in Oct.
Have a great cruise all!!
