Default dining/dresscode

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!!

Yes, the dress code for the evening applies to all restaurants except Horizon Court buffet. People were really dressed-up at Sabatini's

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.

Hi All,

Quick question here regarding the Horizon on formal night....

Will they serve lobster like they do in the dining room?

Someone last year specifically stated that Horizon Court did have lobster on the same evening as the dining room.

Thanks for the info, Pea!

Trying to decide whether to simplify our packing and not take formal clothes but didn't want to miss out on lobster night. : )
