Default Casual Nights on Grand Princess

We will be sailing on the Grand the week of March 3rd and wanted to know what "casual" dress means for the dinners in the dining rooms (for men, women, and kids). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Except for the 2 formal night.. all the others are casual. Casual onboard means docker style slacks and polo style shirts for the men, and similar for the ladies. For the kids too.. no blue jeans and t shirts, but otherwise basically country club casual.

Regards,
Kuki

The cruise line calls it casual elegance which in fact is a higher level of dress than polo shirts. Many men were nice looking, long sleeve casual shirts, and even a sport coat. Some, but not many wear ties and jackets. The line would do well to state that shirts without collars will not be accepted in the dining rooms as compared to the other, definitely casual dining venues. I saw a guy with a Mickey Mouse logo on his T shirt apparently feel that he was casually elegant !!!!! JP

jp,

According to both Princeess's definition of "smart casual" (see the current edition of the Cruise Answerbook) and the Princess Patter on the first night of my last cruise, any shirt with a collar is acceptable on "smart casual" nights.

The "suggested" (that really means expected...) attire for "smart casual" nights is exactly the same as what the line formerly "suggested" for "casual" nights before the company dropped semiformal nights last year. I believe that the company added the adjective "smart" to "casual" in prescribing evening attire because some passengers were interpreting "casual" to mean "jeans and t-shirt" rather than neat casual attire.

Norm.
