My wife and I are going on the Voyager of the seas on July 30. This is our first time on RCCL. We have been for several years going on Norweign crusie lines. They have freestyle cruising. Meaning you can eat whenever you want and no formal nights. I hate to dress up just to go and eat.
What would happen if we went to dinner on a formal night and I didnt have a suit on. Would they not let me in the dinning room to eat. Would they actually not let me in?
If they didnt, is there somewhere else we can eat and not have to dress up?
I can't imagine them not letting you in. I would not however wear jeans or shorts that night...then they may not. You can always eat at the Windjammer Cafe which is always casual. Actually Voyager has several alternative rest. places to eat...so you won't have a problem at all. I know that Johnny Rockets is a casual eat.
Have fun on your cruise!!!
We went on RCCL in Feb. They also have free style dining. My husband refuses to wear a suit because he doesn't like to dress up either. He wore nice pants, a shirt and tie and that was fine. Alot of guys I noticed did not wear full suits either.
As long as you are dressed nicely in pants, shirt and tie, they will let you in. However, you might feel somewhat out of place with tablemates and other diners dressed up in tuxedos and formals. While my hubby hates dressing up also, he was willing to wear a suit (and jacket & tie to Portofinos), but was allowed to wear his "dress" black leather sneakers - hey, we all have to make some concessions!
There are always alternatives such as Windjammer and room service for that night where you can dress any way you want.
The Windjammer on the Voyager puts out great food. On one of the formal nights, my wife was quite sick, and we did not feel like dressing up for dinner, so we went casual to the Windjammer and had a great and quiet time there. As for formal nights, I read a lot of posts about men refusing to get dressed in a suit or tux for a formal night dinner. If on those occasions your just cant do it, then stay away from those of us that can. I think our parents somewhere along the line gave us a lesson on courtesy. It was just not directed towards the first 18 years of our lives. Have a great cruise.....John
