Jeans in the MDR on non-formal nights?
 
Are jeans allowed in the MDR on non-formal nights?

thecruisequeen September 9th, 2013 08:59 PM

Jeans are worn on non formal nights. Dress codes have become more relaxed through the years.

Some cruisers now have their own way of thinking....."it's my vacation I'll wear what I want". :-?

Zydec are you booked on a Royal ship and plan to wear jeans for dinner:?::p:-PLOL

Dave Beers September 9th, 2013 11:18 PM

I've worn blue jeans into a Royal Caribbean dining room on casual nights more than once. Never a problem.

zydecocruiser September 10th, 2013 02:52 AM

Okay, Thanks.

Have I booked a cruise? All in good time. roflrofl

I will congratulate the moderators. I asked the same question on the Dark side and the first time was deleted before I ever got to see if there was a response and the second time, I barely had time to see a response.

It is safe to say they will be the last to know.

What is so cool about jeans?

I used to wear them to do yard work when I lived in Ct.

Now that I live in Florida I wear jeans only when I go back up North for a visit during the winter months.

I can honestly say (getting old though - the memory is failing!) that I haven't seen jeans in the MDR at dinner.

Have seen someone get turned away at breakfast for a sleeveless muscle shirt and a baseball cap.

On the first night, you see a lot of walking shorts for men. Most men, I'd say are business casual (dockers, nice khakis etc.).

I agree with Manuel, jeans are hot, and not quite appropriate for the warm weather.

zydecocruiser September 10th, 2013 01:40 PM

Cuz I live in jeans - even to Church - and not holy ones. rofl

But not on formal nights.

One of the things funny to me is people who say jeans are too hot, yet think the MDRs are too cool. Go figure.

I don't wear muscle shirts or ball caps (often).

Sulross September 10th, 2013 02:24 PM

Sheets
 
It is getting so you can wear anything you want in the MDR. If you want to wear a sheet and make a toga out of it they will probably say nothing as they don't want to offend the customer. I wish they would set a policy and then back it up and send you out if not dressed for the occasion.

Queen of Oakville September 10th, 2013 02:34 PM

lol. I remember years ago .... in NYC ... I was in my early 20's we went to a hot dance club. There was a guy in drag, perched up on a box and he was checking out the crowd, hand-picking who he would let into the club. Fortunately, we got in :)

Maybe they should use this approach for entry into the MDR?

rofl


I'm sure some guests are very belligerent, and I'm guessing most of the MDR staff probably think they don't get paid enough to face a guest's wrath for dresscode violations.

Like I said, only once have I ever seen somebody turned away.

Dave Beers September 10th, 2013 04:28 PM

I've noticed that 'jeans' are no longer mentioned in the daily Cruise Compass as not being allowed. I think it has been at least for two years now. Even for formal night the only caveats about dress are for no shorts, tank tops, ball caps, or bare feet.

thecruisequeen September 10th, 2013 07:18 PM

Most ships are cool or chilly for me anyway so Jeans would not be an issue of being warm. I'm not a big jeans person though.

I shall be breaking a few onboard dress code rules in a few weeks......:oops:
7 night cruise I'm doing 3 formal nights. Another night (non formal) in the MDR I shall wear shorts :shock:, and one night in the MDR I'll be wearing fangs:rolleyes:roflrofl

The shorts are dressy and a dressy blouse both from the Jennifer Lopez collection. :rolleyes::twisted::mrgreen::p;) Love my girl JLo her fashion line is the best:mrgreen:

ship2shore September 11th, 2013 01:41 AM

I have worn (new) black denim to the MDR even on formal nights for over 10 years now, on Carnival, RCI and Norwegian, and never had the feeling people were cursing me behind my back.

Since most airlines now restrict the number and weight of luggage, bringing a suit or an elaborate female wardrobe & shoes to "go with" (for the Mrs. of course..:twisted:) is a luxury I will no longer pay a surcharge for. Black denim works for everything, and even the jacket now stays home to feed the moths.

thecruisequeen September 11th, 2013 07:58 AM

The cruises I don't have to fly to I can just drive to are the best....I can pack all the outfits and shoes that I want....:twisted:8-):mrgreen::-P

I pack too many outfits that when the cruise is over I unpack outfits that were never even worn onboard...rofl:rolleyes:rofl

Black denim on formal night works on Princess.

I remember years ago Led Zeppelin tried to get in an upscale club in New Orleans wearing blue jeans and was refused entry. After an altercation and John Bonham getting knocked out, they abandoned the attempt. The times they change.

Queen of Oakville September 11th, 2013 11:24 AM

lol CruiseQueen - last I checked, Fangs are not prohibited per the dress code. Now whips and chains will likely be prohibited per the weapons policy.:p

ship2shore September 11th, 2013 03:08 PM

I wonder what the policy is towards real versus prosthetic fangs...

seadog2 September 11th, 2013 05:26 PM

After many cruises we learned how to pack. We always meet the weight requirements for flying with luggage. DW carries her formal wear with shoes and I carry suits for those nights. We carry three pieces of luggage total. We enjoy the formal nights and don't mind getting dressed up. We compensate in other areas. Just take what is absolutely necessary and leave the rest at home.

roflroflrofl

There are still clubs in the city that do the "dress to impress and you get in" rule.

I like that idea for the MDR.....those that don't get in would then be sent to the Windjammer...:rolleyes::twisted::mrgreen:roflrofl

I guess if you have real fangs you are a true vampire which means you don't need to go to the MDR or Windjammer. Their meal is the cruisers and crew..:shock::twisted::p:p:p:p:p:p

I am sure that you will look like a proper Cruisequeen. :D 8-)

I can't say that I have have seen fangs on cruiseships. :?: :?: :-o, but I bet that you will look cool. :wink:

ship2shore September 12th, 2013 03:12 AM

Other wild creatures besides vampires have fangs.
In fact, I know a few women (not ladies) whose bite is worse than their bark...rofl
And THOSE fangs are real pointy. Best to keep out of striking distance.

Queen of Oakville September 12th, 2013 11:16 AM

I like the way you think!

Question for Queen of Oakville.....

I see you cruised on Disney Fantasy recently....Did you like it? How would you compare it to Freedom of the Seas?

Fantasy looks so cool and I hear nothing but great things about it....Would love to try Fantasy.

Thanks!

Sorry Mods I know I know this is way off topic....:oops::oops::p:twisted:;)

ship2shore September 12th, 2013 11:29 PM

I was going to say... this thread has been quite thoroughly hijacked.rofl

Queen of Oakville September 13th, 2013 11:58 AM

You have to really love Disney or have kids who really love Disney to take and love a Disney cruise. My kids and I love Disney, my DH not so much :(

Disney is great at a lot of things especially service and entertainment.

Make no mistake - there are tons of kids on a Disney cruise - not all are well behaved - or have parents who care that their children are well behaved. I'm fortunate that my kids are in the well behaved camp so I focus my attention on the fact that my kids are enjoying themselves.

Now to answer your question. We had an amazing time on FOTS - but it was before our very first cruise. The character meets are not as obtrusive as they are on Disney. On Disney, we found ourselves planning our entire day around character meets and princess gatherings (our fault). My only complaint about character meets on FOTS is that a child could be lining up to meet shrek and stand in line forever, and then just as the child gets to the front of the line - they pull a switch a new character is subbed in - happened to us twice - both times with puss n boots - who my son was terrified of. That would never happen on Disney. They cut off the line and tell everyone new joining that line if a character change is going to appear, so you know upfront if there will be a character change. Disney also does a better job of catering to food allergies (my son is peanut allergic). Royal does a horrible job of that. By catering, I mean conveying what items contain nuts. Royal's policy is "if in doubt - don't eat it". Front-line workers don't even know what has nuts or doesn't. Disney also does a better job of managing the guest relationship/experience across multiple venues.

That being said, we love Royal, and the dreamworks experience, makes it a happy one for our family. My kids love the splash zone ~ and as they get older, they will be able to enjoy flowrider, zip, and other stuff. Though, nothing beats the AQUADUCK! Royal also has casinos - and my husband I both like to gamble. Loved both Fantasy and Dream - but like I said, you have to really love Disney to enjoy and get the most out of a Disney cruise. I doubt we will ever do another Disney cruise, but we'll see.



now back to your regularly scheduled discussion of dresscodes, jeans, fangs, and vampires rofl

Yes, but in a tasteful way. LOL

QUEEN - Thank you for the breakdown.....I love the Disney/Universal experience I'll give it a try in the future. :mrgreen::-P8-)

SHIP2SHORE - This thread was only hijacked for a bit with talk of Disney. All other post really are linked to "non formal night MDR dress code" which falls under the "jeans in the MDR on non formal night" umbrella...:-P:mrgreen::pLOLLOL8-)

Back to jeans....Even though black jeans are really just jeans however black jeans are easier to dress up and make a more dressier outfit and not be considered as casual as blue jeans.....:-P

How about green jeans or purple Jeans?

TM

thecruisequeen September 15th, 2013 08:45 AM

Colored jeans are not a problem on non formal nights.....Colored jeans are cool looking.... I would not go with jeans (any color) sneakers and a tshirt to the MDR though. There are many ways to dress up a pair of jeans (blue, black or colored).

https://scontent-a-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/...59429726_n.jpg



Britney Spears pulls off a good look wearing pink jeans with a blazer. No problem with this look on non formal nights. :twisted::p

https://scontent-a-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/...63087858_n.jpg


The Beckhams usually dress to impress....They would get into the MDR with jeans....maybe even on formal night....Not that the Beckhams would ever wear jeans on a formal night:!: They go all out for formal events. 8-):-P

https://scontent-a-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/...84841358_n.jpg


And of course there is Tom Cruise with his ex Katie Holm who pull off the jeans look very well....(Katie's shoes Rock!) They too would not have a problem getting into the MDR....Even the police officer in the back is admiring the look...LOLLOL
