Default Formal Dress For 11 Year Old Son???

Hi, We'll be taking our first cruise on Carnival Paradise on 7-28. What is the dress requirement for children on formal dinner nights? Does my 11 year old son need to wear a tie? This could be our biggest headache of the trip!!! Girls are much easier to get dressed up!!!!
Thanks for any input.

I generally advise that boys and teens can get away without a jacket on formal night but I do suggest wearing a button down shirt with a tie. Obviously, they'll still let him in the dining room if he doesn't, but a tie seems to be the norm.
Smooth sailing,

don't feel bad my children 11-girl and 14- boy would rather stay home than dress for dinner. we are having a big arguement as both hate to dress for church so i understand what you are going thru.
