I sailed on the Princess Diamond last year. I saw nice variations of bluejeans (with nice shirts, etc.) being worn at dinner. I did not see anyone turned away; neither did I see anyone come into the diningroom with worn looking blujeans.
I am planning on wearing a new pair of demin-looking Capris to dinner with a gorgeous top and shoes! I don't think this should pose a problem. Don't feel it falls under the heading of bluejeans.
If anyone disagrees with me, please advise. Thanks!
I personally think capris are a little classier than jeans even if they are denim. If people feel that they don't want to "dress up" smart casual then they can opt for the buffet. The only time we saw someone turned away in the dining room was when they were in shorts for dinner. No shorts for dinner. What part of no didn't they understand? Smart casual is nice because its not the dressy, dressy style. Formal nights are still "formal" if people choose not to dress up again the buffet or room service. People have choices. Enjoy your cruise and you will look lovely.
