Absolutely. I was recently on a Holland America cruise to and from Hawaii. Several people on formal night immediately changed their clothes after dinner. Tacky. Stay home or go on NCL, which I have, incidentally, and also enjoyed. When I went the traditional I sail on the ships that still have it, thank goodness. But from time to time the less structured is fun. But don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Keep some lines with the traditions!!

I don't think that it is tacky to change from an from a suit to a nice sports shirt and dress slacks. after dinner on a formal night. I will still be dressed better than a lot of the people who ate at the alternative resturant, and I will be comfortable in the show room. Also, I will neither stay home nor cruise on NCL. Things are as they are.

Oh, Paul ...

I think we are agreeing too often.

You choose words well. A NICE sportshirt and dress slacks.

Even though I wish people would stay dressed up, dressing WAY down kinda wrecks my evening.

I have this horrible temptation to carry a lacrosse stick on a cruise and smack the idiots who think gym shorts, tube and tank tops, etc. after dinner (or during dinner) on dress-up nights is perfectly OK.

See the small, but extremely fierce, pamda wielding a lacross stick.

A one-iron would do just as well, but I've never been able to hit ANYTHING with a one-iron.

How about a giant orange spongy finger that would signify that you are number 1 and that they are not?

I have a bright VW blue foam finger that you are welcome to have, maybe I should bring it along on the Summit cruise! :-)
