Dressy tank tops????
 
I have skirts which are paired with dressy tanks, but I read somewhere tank tops are not allowed in the dining room, would that apply to those types or just the casual ones? Please help!!! :-?

A dressy tank would definitely be fine in the dining room. I have worn a few on past cruises, but the dining rooms are usually a bit chilly and you may want to take a light sweater/jacket with you!! Hope you have a great cruise

Hmmm....

As a veteran of 22 cruises, I don't ever recall seeing anything saying that tank tops are not allowed in the dining room. They certainly would be acceptable on "casual" evenings and, if dressy, on "informal" evenings. You might even be able to pair a really fancy tank top with a matching full length skirt for "formal" evenings.

That said, the point about dining rooms on some ships being chilly is accurate so be sure to bring something to keep your shoulders warm.

the no-tank tops in the dining room during dinner hours refers to the ultra-casual tanks tops that you would wear during the day with your shorts or swimsuit. Dressy tanks of silk, shimmery fabrics, tanks with beading,sparkle or lace can be worn under a suit to make a beautiful semi-formal or even formal outfit.

I cruise HAL, and the dress code for the dining room ALWAYS says "no tank tops."

But they are referring to the casual kind, the T-shirt without sleeves kind.

Your dressy tank top is fine.

great, thanks!!

Just keep in mind that if you decide to wear it, bring something that is long sleeve as well to go over it.

It can get chilly in the dining room with the air conditioning.

I recommend beaded bra straps that I just bought from http://www.mybrastrap.com. These straps helped me jazz up any sleeveless or spaghetti strap top. Simple shoulder jewelry did the trick for fashionable cruising.

i agree with u beaded bra straps are looking good and its a new style and looking sweet :)

I really think they are referring to MEN in tank tops with the hairy armpits, etc. - not very nice at dinner. However, as someone pointed out, the dining rooms can get pretty cold - I'd bring a sweater or wrap just in case (I hate being cold).

To keep from twisting anyone's knickers, I think you can call that a sleeveless, rather than a tank top!

mehawk July 1st, 2008 06:07 PM

My dw has worn them before and it was tasteful.

Minus the jeans, please.

I would assume it's ok for a woman to wear a dressy tank top, I seen ladies wearing backless gowns.

As long as men don't wear them to dine . . . though some may have tried.

"dressy tank"--now that's a real oxymoron...sort of like, "clean swamp".
