Thank You HAL
 
On the Carnival message board, we are having an intresting discussion concerning the wearing of jeans on formal night. On HAL that does not seem to be a problem. Perhaps the company will allow the excessively casual "party animal" crowd have Carnival, while keeping Holland America ships a little bit more classy. Don't get me wrong, I have sailed on both and LOVED both lines. However, things such as R-rated comedy turned me away from Carnival. When i sailed HAL, all the shows were classy and the CCL's "good" crowd was there while the crassy crowd stayed on CCL.

Hopefully this does not mean that you condone the wearing of jeans on Formal Nights!!

It would be impossible to still have 'formal' night if people were wearing jeans. Formal dress is formal dress and jeans do not qualify. It always makes me laugh on these boards when people ask the question , 'Can I wear jeans on formal night?' What the heck is the problem with formal night being formal. If you don't like dressing up have room service or don't go on a cruise.

No jeans
 
No I do not pack jeans for a cruise. On the Carnival board of this web site some folks were angry with the travel agent for telling them that jeans in the dining room is a no no. They wish to wear jeans anyway. I suggested that if someone shows up on formal night in jeans, others might think them to be redneck. So far, there have been 126 post on this subject.

Thoth - I'm so glad to hear that!

Peaches is right - jeans are for 'greasy spoon dining'.

Now I'm going to look at the Carnival board.

It is like the old saying "what is it about the word no you don't understand". What is it about the word formal that these Carnival Goobers don't understand? How can any well mannered person consider jeans appropriate for a formal night? If one doesn't want to wear a suit then don't go, there are many alternatives.

no offensive towards anyone
 
To each their own! whatever floats their boat, pun intended. Ha Ha Wear jeans to a 5 star dinner on Carnival and folks think "he's casual". If someone wears jeans to a fine dinner in the Rotterdam dining room on Holland American, some might think ' "did he just fall off the turnip truck?"

The unbelievable thing is how many people (on other lines' boards) say on these threads that they wear jeans into the dining room and no one thinks they are being rude or are rednecks. I hate to tell them, but most people are just being polite. I learned on the Carnival board that Carnival does NOT have a 'no jeans in the dining room' rule. That says a lot. They probably should post a sign at the dining room door- No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service.

I checked the board too - amazing! Knew there was a reason I've never considered one of the Carnival 'floating condos'.

As for being polite, I'm glad there are many of us still around but confess to being hard pressed to keep quiet with so many slobs appearing on ships these days.

Suki What do you mean by did I fall off the net?. From what i have seen HAL does attract class. What is wrong with that?

This why I cruise HAL excluisivily. I don't have to experince those passengers who change into their shabbyiests shopworn stuff. After a gourmet dinner passengers should migrate to a Broadway Show or a Movie.

If ya want to dress like a tramp book passage on a steamer.

Toth - it looks like you didn't finish your sentence - "from what I have seen"

and that is probably why Suki asked if you had fallen off the net.

thoth February 1st, 2003 10:19 AM

I see that now
 
There was a little problem with the scripting. I split the sentence up and that did NOT work . ALL IS COOL!
