Default To Dress or Not to Dress (up, that is!)

I also believe that the tradtional cruise traditions of dining and observing a dress code is nice. While I reserve the right to eat at an alternative restaurant on occasion, I love the comfortable relationship that you build when you sit with the same people each night. I agree that this is what sets cruising apart that the cruise lines shouldn't mess with. Another by-product of this type of cruising is that the waiter/asst. waiter, knowing that his tip will be based on his good service, works hard each night to remember your likes/dislikes. On Princess, they've begun to assess cruisers a tip to your on-line account each day because if you're not eating each night in the dining room, you're unlikely to give the envelope to the wait-staff on the last night, something they depend on. There's one suggestion that I would give, however. My husband complains that on a 7 day cruise (particularly in the Caribbean), it's ludicrous to expect ties 4 out of 7 nights (even informal nights mean jacket and tie). If they changed Informal to mean jacket and sport shirt/turtleneck, that would be a compromise.
