Normally the dress code for kids is a little more relaxed. I have me own feelings about this, but you didn't ask for my opinion, just what is accepted. I think burmuda shorts will probably work. Hope someone else can varify this. Have a great cruise.
Freestyle Cruising gives you the freedom to dress as you please – morning, noon and night.
Casual attire is perfect for all restaurants during the day -- Khakis, skirts, jeans, casual tops, shorts or whatever. Swimwear with a cover-up is fine at the buffet and outdoor restaurant.
For dinner, collared shirts and pants or nice jeans work for guys. Slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops are perfect for women. But if you want to dress up and add a little glamour when you dine out, that’s OK too – we’ve reserved one restaurant each night just for that.
For kids 12 and under, nice shorts are appropriate in all restaurants at all times."
Looks like 12 and under are now allowed to wear nice shorts.
I agree about the slacks. Its even chilly in the "kids crew area". so our last ncl cruise i ended up in the evening time putting my 5yrold in pajama pant set when i dropped her off. i also dressed her in the evening in like a jogging suit. something relaxing to play in. in the dinning area slacks and a dress shirt...or dress for little girls...remember to pack them a sweater!
