Default Informal dress code?

My husband, myself and two daughters leave on SOS this friday. I have squeezed every bit of information out of this website....many thanks!!!

One more question. Due to work, both I and my husband spend too much time in semi-formal attire, in particular recently, we have had numerous dinners and dinner meetings-we are tired of it. What is the dress code for days, regular meals, and evenings? Are shorts for men (nice cargos, NOT jeans!) frowned upon in the dining room? The formal night is a no brainer-we will be skipping that, but other nights, shows etc?? My husbands' weekend attire is cargos, boat shoes, and a short sleeve polo....is this acceptable in the evening? Thanks in advance!!

casual SLACKS like dockers etc. would be fine. Wearing shorts to the dining room would likely lead to you being asked to dine on Lido deck or in your cabin (where the full dinner menu is available).

Hi Hemingway,
They don't allow shorts in the dining room for dinner, they are fine for breakfast and lunch. If he could switch the shorts to a pair of docker type slacks, with the polo shirts, that will work nicely.

for the daytime shorts, t-shirts bathing suits w/cover-ups.
Shorts are frowned upon in the dining rooms during dinner, you could be asked to dine at the Windjammer or to change(have seen this happen)
casual slacks like Dockers with a polo shirt and boat shoes would be just fine for your hubby.
For you ladies - sundress w/flat sandals or kitten heels, capris with a nice top or sweater set, trousers with a nice blouse

Unless you are on a more luxury liner, you CAN wear shorts to the dining room and no one can say a thing about. You are a paying customer and no one will dare make a fuss to you.
