Default Freedom cruisers-Was there a Smart Casual night?

On our last cruise, the "Smart Casual" was combined with "Caribbean" night. So, there was a mix of hawaiian shirts/slack and sport coats and ties in the dining room.
We'll soon be sailing on Freedom, and I need to know if I should pack a dress or a more casual outfit.

Check the RCCL website - do a search for dress codes...I think they have done away with "smart casual" - now there is just casual and formal. Suggested definitions are included on the website. No shorts and caps at night...

"What are the dress codes onboard?

There are three distinct types of evenings onboard: casual, smart casual and formal. 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

3 to 4 - night cruises include one formal night and the remainder nights are casual.
5 - night cruises include one formal and the remainder nights casual.
6 - night cruises include two formal nights, one smart casual and the remainder nights casual. 7 to 9 - night cruises include two formal nights, one smart casual night and the remainder nights casual.
10 to 13-night cruises include two formal nights, two smart casual nights, and the remainder nights casual.
14+ - night cruises include three formal nights, four smart casual nights and the remainder nights casual.

We appreciate your usual parental guidance and cooperation in observing these easy guidelines with your children."

Irish Shark: Go into a department store and ask for a
pantsuit for your wife/significiant other or??? They'll likely
not know what you're talking about...It is an outdated term.

In my humble opinion, it is very difficult to see the difference
between smart casual and casual especially for women. Men
also tend to do open neck sport shirts, maybe long sleeve, maybe
not for smart casual...Sport coats seem to be in the minority.

And yes, I'm cruising Celebrity and RCI...not Carnival.

Lou, I did not write it. It is from the RCI site.

If you think it is outdated, drop them a line and let them know.

I know what the web site says. My question was: What has been the dress code on the most recent Freedom cruise?
