My family and I will be taking a cruise to Alaska with HAL on the Statendam in July. The information I recieved from them stated that other than the formal/informal dinner nights, dress on board ship was "comfortable" as in jeans, T-shirts, athletic wear, etc. Right after that, the brochure states that jeans, T-shirts, etc. are not alllowed in "public" areas. Well.....does that mean that yes we can dress casually, but, we will have to stay on deck, in hallways, or our cabins?. Isn't the whole ship except for the cabins, "public"? How many times a day will we have to change clothes? I have two young adult daughters and would like to keep my husband sane by not taking too much luggage!
