I understand the suggested dresscode on formal nights but can anyone tell me if you choose to dine in the alterantive dining rooms on these nights do they have a dresscode?? We will be sailing on the Sapphire in Oct. 1st time on Princess and new to the alternative dining. Thank You.
Have a great cruise all!!
I've chosen personal choice dining on the Diamond when I sail to Alaska this May. It's too bad that you can't wear dress slacks and a button down shirt ( maybe a tie if i absolutely had to) in some of the dining rooms. I understand that some enjoy dressing up, but their should be a dining room for those of us who want the upscale dining experience that does not require us to wear a suit and tie/tuxedo for dinner. After all, I'm on vacation, and I have to wear a darn suit to work all week!
MTS, I understand your point as my hubby has to dress for work , and therefore on the weekends likes to go casual. The good point is the outfit you describe is fine for 5 out of 7nights.
There are only two formal nights on a 7 day cruise, so like I tell hubby, " it's only 2 nights, suck it up and let me have my "dress up " time also( I don't get to dress up often!)"
As above poster noted there is always Horizon Court( casual dining option) and although during the day it is "buffet" at night it is " bistro " ( meaning you do get table service, )so if you truly hate the dress up thing there is another option!
Enjoy your cruise, dinner is only a small part of it!
Believe me......I've been on 8 cruises, I would never turn down the experience of cruising for a couple nights of a required suit and tie. :-) It's absolutely my favorite type of vacation! Thanks for your insight PG.
