I'm booked on the Sep 24, 2011 sailing of oasis of the seas and this being my first cruise I have some questions for the community.
What I'm most concerned about is the dress requirements. I read a few threads on here regarding the requirements of RCI specifically but they did not fully answer my questions.
I don't dress formally very often and I do not have a very diverse wardrobe available to me. I have a formal dark suit I wear on special occasions (weddings, funerals etc) but beyond that I generally wear jeans and a t-shirt.
As I understand it, there are no dress requirements at any time except dinner (in lounges, dining rooms and specialty restaurants). Anywhere else and at any other time I can wear jeans/t-shirt/shorts etc? Is this accurate?
I have no problem dressing up when it is appropriate to do so, but I also don't want to spend hundreds of dollars (my booze money) on a wardrobe for a single cruise (if I don't like it, it may also be my last cruise).
From what I have read my suit is suitable for formal nights. Is it also suitable for a smart-casual night or would I be over dressed? What do I need to purchase to fill the void between the suit and the jeans/t-shirt before I leave?
Thanks for any advice.
