Hello everybody, does anybody know what the dress code in Portofino is on formal nights? My wife and I do not wish to participate in formal night in the main dining room so we thought we'd eat at Portofino on those nights. Thanks!
The dress code for formal night applies to dress throughout the ship, not just the dining room. Nowhere does it say that one is expected to dress formally only if they will be eating in the dining room. That being said, if you choose to dress more casually, you should go to the Windjammer Cafe, not Portofino's.
I believe the dress code for any alternative restaurant requires a jacket for men, and thats any night. Why not just pack a suit and enjoy "formal" night in the dining room, the menu is always a good one and a night you really don't want to miss.
Pick a nite as suggested by Donna that is not the formal nite as these nites are special in the main dining room.You should wear a coat in the special restaurant as this is an upscale dining experience.
From the horses mouth, here is what RCL website says about dress code in Portofinos. As usual, there will be the occasional rebel who wants to "stand out" in his pressed jeans and wife-beater shirt...
We suggest smart casual attire in Portofino - jackets and ties for men, dresses or pantsuits for women. On formal evenings, formal attire is also appropriate in the restaurant; which includes suits and ties or tuxedos for men and cocktail dresses for women.
