Default Shorts

Are shorts allowed in the dining room for teenage boys at dinner time,or do I have to pack enough pants for them to wear everynite.......hate to bring extra if not needed. Of course I am not referring to the formal nights....just the other nights.

No shorts in the dining room for dinner are ever allowed...at least that's what the dress codes say.

For a 7 day cruise I brought my son 2 pairs of khaki pants to wear at dinner, other than for formal nights when he wore his suit. They didn't get dirty as he just wore them for dinner and then changed back into his shorts. Hope this helps.

Like the others have said....just bring a few pairs of pants, he can wear them more than once. (I do that for my husband)

Here is the info from RCCL's website (notice the 2nd to last sentence..I capitalized it so it will be easier to notice):

Dress Suggestion

During the day, casual clothes are fine for the main dining room. In the evening, there are three distinct types of dress onboard: casual, smart casual and formal.

3 to 4-night cruises include one formal night and two or three casual nights.
7-night cruises include two formal nights, one smart casual night and four casual nights.
10, 11, and 12-night cruises include three formal nights and three smart casual nights; all other nights are casual.
14 and 15-night cruises include three formal nights and four smart casual nights. All other nights are casual.

Suggested guidelines for these nights are:
Casual: Sport shirts and slacks for men, sundresses or pants for women
Smart Casual: Jackets and ties for men, dresses or pantsuits for women
Formal: Suits and ties or tuxedos for men, cocktail dresses for women

Bare feet or bathing suits are not allowed at any time in the dining room and SHORTS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT DINNER.

Each ship also offers a variety of casual dining options, for example, the Windjammer Café.

On our first cruise (Thanksgiving 2002) we were allowed shorts on the first night because everyone' s luggage was not delivered by dinner time. Also, I did not know shorts were not allowed until we got on the ship. We had our 6 year old and one pair of nice pants. You can imagine what they looked like by the last night after one of the nights dropping a glob of chocolate ice-cream on them and having Chicken Nuggets with ketchup EVERY NIGHT!!! This cruise only took pictures two nights so we had to strategically place his hands on the glob stain for a family photo!!!

Have a blast
