What is it with the resistance to wearing a tuxedo?
If I were a man, I' d like the idea. I wouldn't have to worry about what I was going to wear in the evening ... wouldn't even have to choose a tie or try to find socks that match. Wouldn't have to worry if the laundry had broken a button on a shirt.
Add in the "hunk" factor in the eyes of your beloved or someone whom you might like to love. "Getting lucky" isn't only in the casino.
Then there is the little-known benefit (not known to tux-haters) of the expando-waist on many dinner suits. This is useful late in the cruise.
And, unless you let Garth and the other Brooks Brothers tailor you up a dinner suit, it may well be the least expensive suit you will ever own.
Mine is not a resistance to the Tux, it is resistance to having to pack, carry and dress while on vacation. I am on vacation and want to relax and enjoy myself and dressing in a tux for the sake of dressing is not my idea of fun. We just returned from NCL Sky and I did not dress on any evening. My wife was comfortable in the fact that she did not have to shop/pack extra clothes and we were comfortable all week. Our experience was not any better on our other cruises where we dressed (formally) vs. this one. In fact, I much enjoyed the freestyle dining program, and we both were very happy with our experience. Freestyle changes the dynamic of the cruise, especially the dining room, but that is another story.
