Default Dressing for dinner

I LOVE getting all dressed up - never get to at home so this is part of the cruising attraction for me. We're considoring the Dawn, and I'm wondering if I will feel silly and out of place if I'm "dressed" each night for dinner. I don't mean a ball gown or anything - I just want to bring along my "cruise dresses" - I've lost a bunch of weight and actually look good in them now! Ha!
Thank you~

Hi,
'' You got it ?? Flaunt it !!! ""

It's a vacation; enjoy; dress up every night, and on the 2-3 formal ones, dress up to the nines !!!! It matters not a bit what everybody else thinks, they'll be probably be too buzy admiring what they see .....It's YOUR taste.

Go for it !!!

Happy sailings
Cheers

I agree! This is one of my only times to get dressed up, too. Go for it. It's fun to look our best! I think most people look pretty nice. Wearing jeans to dinner is tacky, I think.

More will be dressed up than down. you may not see many tuxes or actual formals but you will see pretty dresses clothes. On one of our freestyle cruises I was wearing a cute sun dress and DH a shirt and tie but no jacket. We really felt under dressed. As for every night, well that is up to you, but yes, you will see some of that as well.
We certainly have. NMnita

I cruised on the Norwegian Star and had no problem wearing a jacket each night and saw more people dressed up than dressed down. If you are dining in any of the specialty restaurants you will see many people dressed up.

Go for it. You will not feel out of place. The No Jeans, Shorts, and Tank Tops rule was enforced on our cruise and dress was more "dressy" than I was lead to believe. A nice surprise.

Take care,
Mike

Default Yay - good news!

Thank you all for your replies. I am very glad I can do dressy bessy. Its so cold here that my winter attire means jeans and a sweater everysingle day. I'm DYING to wear my adorable leopard dress and my new slinky blue one....
I do agree that it's tacky to wear jeans and such to dinner. On our last cruise hubby and I were dressed (not a formal night) and seated next to this guy who had on a baseball jersey (it looked like an expensive one, not just a t-shirt) and these HUGE Mr T necklaces. Backwards ball cap - the guy looked ridiculous. I thought it was COMPLETELY disrespectful to the other passengers, and really stupid that the Maitre D even let this bozo in. He looked like he just strolled out the front door of his trailer.

I guess it's probably no different than going to a nice restaurant at home. Most of the people are dressed up very nicely, but there are always those who aren't as fancy. When my husband and I go out and dress up, we don't even pay attention to the fact that others aren't. We plan to do the same on our cruise. Have fun and good luck!

Dress up a little if you want. Some people will be a little more dressy, some people a little more casual. As long as you are not in jeans or t-shirts you will be OK. My husband wears dockers style pants and a nice shirt. I wear a sundress or nice black pants and a top.
