Default Post dinner attire

Are jeans acceptable after dinner for shows or dancing?

Yes, as Irish says. When I was on the Grand, back in 2004, after the formal nights, I would slip into something more comfortable and enjoy the rest of the evening.

As of my last Princess cruise (which was in April 2003), the line's published policy was that "The prescribed evening attire applies throughout the ship, except designated casual areas, after 6:00 PM." Nonetheless, I found enforcement of that policy to be non-existent, with the practical consequence that many passengers did change into "casual" clothing after dinner.

And that lack of enforcement, BTW, is one of the reasons why I have not cruised with Princess since 2003....

I am quite pleased with the lack of enforcement, since a tux or suit with coat and tie is too hot to wear into a crowded theatre or casino. I do wear dress slacks and a collared sport shirt after dinner every night including formal nights. I don't intend to cruise on a ship when I cannot do so.

I agree that the official policy for formal night is that it is not just through dinner but rather all night, but there many who either don't know about it or chooses to ignore it.

As for not sailing Princess because some felt they did not enforce the dress code, on my last Celebrity cruise I saw a guy in the main dining room, on formal night, wearing a tank top tee shirt and no one said anything to him. In all fairness, with all of the problems that Celebrity has had, with the many problems with the defect in the propulsion system, that would be the least of my worries about Celebrity.

especially on formal nights if you are planning on attending some of the festivities planned for the evening like the Midnight Champagne Waterfall you will find that the vast majority of passengers do stay dressed in their formal wear.
On casual nights i dress nice but comfortable and unless i plan on going into the pool or hot tub i don't see a reason to change clothing
