Default Casual Night / Jeans

I'm curious that if the Royal Caribbean website states "No tank tops, shorts or bare feet in the dining room for dinner," on Casual Nights, does that mean nice blue jeans and a golf shirt are permitted?

(I actually plan on wearing khakis or dress slacks with nice loafers and a golf shirt, but I was just curious -- I would have thought jeans would be expressly prohibited).

Thanks RICH

sounds like they have eased their dress code. It used to specify that no jeans were allowed in the dining rooms at night.

I didn't notice anyone in Jeans in the dining room while on Voyager a few weeks ago, so I'd stick with the docker type pants

Yes I have heard they didnt allow jeans. The only cruise line that I know
of that allows jeans on casual nights in Carnival. Good luck.

Neither Carnival or RCCL has anything in their brochures about jeans. Norwegian mentions no jeans in the dining room.

Of course, no one seems to enforce the dressing rules ANYWAY....

I understand the dinner dress codes so far, but what about breakfast and lunch? What do you wear to those? Are shorts and tank tops ok then?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Gina

Yes Gina,
Shorts and tank tops are fine for breakfast and lunch, just no swim suits. I just put on a pair of shorts over swim suit when we go to lunch.

Thanks Donna. I'm not the worlds most conservative ( not that I mean trashy but I don't have a pair of cackis or a polo in my closet, it consists mostly of jean shorts and tanks) dresser so I'm trying to adjust here. Dinners I can survive through, but all day long i think i would probably lose it.
Thanks for the help,
Gina

Gina - most of the day while on ship you will be in your swimsuit anyway. Just have a nice cover-up and a pair of flip-flops or tennis shoes - in port shorts and tanks/t-shirts are just fine. If you want to have breakfast or lunch in the dining room i would throw on a pair of shorts & a t-shirt.

The first and last night of the trip are usually casual since you might not have access to your luggage (either hasnt arrived or had to put it out for pick up). I wear whatever I wore on the plane, so I tend to dress very comfy. My dh has been in jeans and no problems on RCCL. As for breakfast and lunch-shirt, pants and shoes will do just fine (thats dining room or Windjammer cafe). There are sometimes hot dog/burger stands by the pool so swimsuits are fine there.
