Each person defines for themselves what the "real" experience is. For me, and others like me, the "real" experience does not include spending an hour getting dressed for dinner or sitting through a 2...

It has been many years since I have eaten in the traditional dining room, so I can't make a direct comparison, but I have noticed that formal dress is not strictly adhered to in opening seating. I do...

I have been on 11 cruises with Princess, the most recent being November 2007, and jeans are all I wear on nonformal nights. I like black jeans because they look a little dressier, but blue is fine...

Re: Jeans on Carnival

As others have said, shorts are allowed for breakfast and lunch, but not dinner. As for jeans, the question as to whether they "should" be worn seems to be very controversial, however, I can tell...
