From my perspective I think those people that don't wish to get done up are missing the point.I drive truck around the country and it is kinda nice to get out of jeans from time to time and do something that makes you feel good about yourself.I have asked several people aboutformal night and a few have thought I didn't want to dress up and suggested the buffet or room service.(hint hint)If you don't care to get dressed up fine but why are you griping about and ruining it for the rest of us? So tell ya what those experienced cruse fans should I wear a medium shade grey suit or should I go whole hog and rent a tux for the cruise ?
I worked construction for 46 years. I dress for weddings and funerals when invited. When I cruise ------ On the first formal nite I wear a traditional black tux. The second, I wear tux with white jacket. I don't care what anybody thinks, I feel like James Bond in the casino. For others, there is always buffet, hamburgers and hotdogs or pizza. To each, it's their own choice and that is fine with me. They all seem to be good people too. lol 8)
