It really annoys me how some inconsiderate people refuse to dress for formal nights. They ruin it for those of us who do like to enjoy formal wear. If they don't want to abandon their jeans and tee shirts for a few hours they should eat out on deck or order room service. But then cruising has become so mass-marketed that sometimes I feel like I am in the food court at Wal-mart's! :evil:
I know how you feel Pat Hagan..... but I think you should also know that a lot of people are not dressing up at all in the L.A. California area. Can you believe people not dressing up for funerals or weddings? Most people wear sports clothes. Truly unbelievable. Even the grooms don't want to dress up.
They just wear a white shirt and slacks.
I noticed that only 10% dressed up in the gowns and tuxs on the Fun ship. People just don't want to dress up any more.
I didn't see any beautiful gowns either. Mostly just nice church clothes.
One silly man in his 50's wore a tux jacket and short black shorts and tennis shoes just to get a laugh. We all just shuddered when we saw him pass us by during formal night. I have no idea if he was able to get into the dinning room. Angel Gal
I agree that formal wear is fast becoming a thing of the past, affecting those who still like to dress up a few nights on a cruise. Perhaps cruise lines could reserve one dining room (if the ship has two) and designate it for formal night and post a crew member at the door who would not let anyone in who was not appropriately dressed.
