Default Windjammer Cafe Dinner dress code

We will be on a 5 nite cruise and will probably eat dinner in the Windjammer most nites. Are shorts/bermudas allowed with a botton down shirt? How about leather sandals for men? Thank you for help on this.

You have to have shoes, too. Otherwise anything goes.

shoes and a cover up are required. and they are strict about that. otherwise, it doesn't matter. Even on formal night, you can go into the Windjammer in shorts. And except for lobster, I found most of what was being served in the dining room also in the Windjammer plus extra.

I'm just curious as to "why" you want to go to Windjammer every night?

We go to the Windjammer every night too.
Start of vacation, take off watches, turn off all TV, no newspapers....sit by the pool and read, swim, repeat, eat when hungry,sleep when tired.
We do go back and change to go 'out' at night, but the day and early evening are for relaxing...
NO SCHEDULE!

Windjammer is only resturaunt on the ship that truly offers my time dining. You show up, get a seat and eat, no wait, no fuss, and yes they serve drinks.

OK, but don't you want to be waited on instead of standing in line at a buffet every now and then?

You can do that anytime, and certainly sometimes onboard, but not everynight. Mix it up a bit, put on a pair of nice pants and shirt and enjoy the good life!

I love to be waited on. I just returned from a 12 night cruise and ate dinner once in Windjammer. I was only letting people know about windjammer and how casual it is. When u go on shore excursions and don't return to the ship until six or seven and you are ate the first seating; well u missed dinner and the windjammer is the best option.

No it is our first choice.
Depends what you want from a cruise, and what you call 'the good life' eh

My family has just decided to eat exclusively @ Windjammer for our upcoming cruise b/c trying to pack all the clothes necessary for Alaska excursions and dinner was making it impossible to stay under the 50lb weight limit set by the airlines. One person wrote that they were charged $150 for an overweight bag !!! We are a family of four so that would add up quickly!!

So we will dress like we do at home -- jeans and shorts ---- and eat at the buffet.

No one is really disappointed about this and it has made packing for our cruise much much easier!!!

Some day!!!

This is the only place where you can eat without having to dress up . Dont try to do the same at the main restaurant.

Hello Fellowcruisers,

Like many people who posted on this subject, we also prefer to dine at the Windjammer. No hurry, no fuss, relax; you don't have to hurry your meal for the 1st show or the 2nd seating nor wind up sitting for a couple of hours in the main diningroom (unless you prefer to do so) while you can be in and out within the hour in the Windjammer and not miss all the fun things to do around the ship.

Please excuse me but i dont mean to be rude BUT:

We are a family of six and if we can travel with 2 bags for 2 1/2 weeks anybody can do it.

My husband and I travelled for 8 weeks from Australia with a week Alaskan cruise. also travelled on one bag plus suit bag. It is possible just pack wisely and clothes that can be used for multiple purposes.

Alaska is not that cold in summer.

My husband and I found it quite comfortable walking around Alaska in shorts / t-shirts and light jacket.
