Janet see my post in the other thread. It pretty much spells it all out.

Next go to the packing section and read the post "What are the things you wish you brought" and packing list threads.

Finally go have a good time and come back and post pics in the gallery section.

Janet:

Click on "message boards", then "practical advice", and you will see a thread on cruise dress/packing. Lots of information there.

Janet - the only nights that you need to get all dressed-up are the formal nights. For the other nights in the dining rooms your sundress and a nice pair of trousers with a blouse or nice jersey with a collar will be just fine.
Most men wear Dockers type pants with either a polo, short-sleeve button-down or hawaiian print shirt for dinner in the dining rooms. Shorts are not permitted in the main dining rooms during dinner

Janet H,

Am I correct to assume that the dining room is dressy, but the Windjammer is less dressy? Not to big on getting all dressed up while on vaca.......but a sundress or nice slacks I'll do. What do guys wear to the dining room? And is shorts ok for girls and guys in the Windjammer?

On a seven night cruise, most lines now have two "formal" evenings (the Captain's formal "welcome aboard" and the Captain's formal "farewell") and five "casual" evenings. They may use various modifiers ("smart casual," "resort casual," etc.) to describe the dress that's expected on the "casual" evenings, but it usually boils down to no "T" shirts, shorts, or bluejeans. Gents wear a shirt with a collar (polo shirt, golf shirt, "Hawai'ian" shirt, or sport shirt) with slacks or khakis (Dockers, etc.). Ladies usually wear either a sundress or a top with a skirt or slacks.

The "formal" evenings are a really special time when the cruise line literally pulls out all the stops in the main dining rooms, stages the best shows, and holds special events that make the cruise a unique and very memorable vacation experience. The better cruise lines maintain a modified 'black tie" standard of dress on these evenings, with gentlemen wearing either a dinner jacket outfit (or tuxedo) or a dark -- and I do mean DARK -- business suit and ladies wearing full length dresses or formal cocktail dresses. Many cruise lines explicitly state that the prescribed evening dress applies throughout the ship, except for the alternative casual dining area, on the "formal" evenings, so you may well find that your entertainment options are extremely limited if you don't participate in the "formal" evenings.

I should also mention that you probably will receive a formal invitation to a reception from the master of the vessel on one or both of the "formal" evenings. It's a major breach of social etiquette to decline an invitation from the master of a vessel while embarked therein. In fact, it's one of the few occasions when social etiquette demands that one withdraw a previous acceptance of another invitation.

Norm.

Will,

For better or worse, what people wear is a major element of the "decor" that sets the mood for a formal evening.

Will, its not all about who cares what you are wearing really. Its all about what the cruise line asks you to wear on specific nights. The cruise line takes the extra time and makes the extra effort to make formal nights special, set them apart from the other nights, and they ask that you dress according to the occassion.It really all boils down to common courtesy and respect for the cruise line, staff and your fellow passengers.

Default Agree with Lisa (again)

I would feel kinda silly when my waiter is in formal wear, heck even the photographers are wearing tuxes, and I'm sitting there wearing my jeans and a KISS t-shirt...

But that's just me...
