I guess that we have beaten, kicked and ridden this old clothes horse about as far as we can go. Some of us are always going to object to other's dress when they don't follow the guidelines and some of us are never going to care what the other passengers wear. In the meantime, I am always going to wear a coat and tie on formal nights, but I am going to change to dress slacks and a collared shirt after dinner for the show and casino. On most ships I have cruised, those places get too hot for a coat when they get crowded.

WELL WELL WELL... Here I am the one everyone is worried about. I drink as much free booze at the captains cocktail party as I can, and have a few extra glasses in my hand as I exit the room (after all it is free, kind of) I walk to the dining room ( not spilling a drop on me or anyone else) and sit down with the people at my table. They usually get dressed up like Astors Pet Pig and I, in my leasure suit from the 70's. You see I can't afford any expensive clothes because I spend it on cruises every year. I try not to burp too much when I am eating so I don't disturb my table mates. I don't smell ( at least I don't think I do ) I am really a nice guy so if you see me in my powder blue poly. leasure suite say HI to me and I will be happy to meet you. OK? I hope everyone enjoys their cruise Bye for now... Larry

" I just do not understand other peoples preoccupation with what others do or don't do. I wouldn't want to sit next to a "hairy ,smelly dirty person " on formal night or any other night!! BUT< if a pleasant couple sat down beside us and they were wearing say, clean khakis and a golf shirt , and the ladies was in a clean , simple sundress, I would smile and say how do you do!!"...............................pg

How can you say you don't understand other's people's preoccupation with what others do or don't do and then follow it up with you wouldn't want to sit next to a "hairy, smelly person" on formal night or any other night. You have just established a benchmark of what you will accept and what you won't accept. Which is precisely what the others on this board have said.

Suppose the "pleasant couple" was not in Khakis and a golf shirt, and a clean, simple sundress, but in torn, baggie shorts, a greasy T-shirt, a ball cap that has 3 layers of crud on the bill, and spitting tobacco juice in the cup, would you have a problem with that"?

Regards,
Thomas

Yes Thomas, Thank you for pointing out that in fact I do have some standards I would mind dirt and smell and chewing tobacco juice dribbling down a persons chin. BUT, you know what I've never seen that so I don't worry about fantasy scnerios of worst possible cases.The point was "formal wear" on "formal " night, not "what if the most disgusting case of hygiene neglect sat down at your table"I don't think you need to pick at bones, most people just want to have fun on a cruise and meet pleasant people.Pleasant is more important than being dressed "correctly" but having the personality of a block of wood or a viper.
You should note that the words "dirty , smelly and hairy armpits" were in quotations because these were all phrases used in other posts before mine.I repeat I have been lucky and never seen such flagrant disregard for basic decency. AND I stand by my comment that " I don't care what people wear...."BUT, to be more accurate I should now say...
I now state for the record people who lack any sense of cleanliness please don't sit next to me because I find excessive filth upsetting. BUT. people with bad fashion taste, casual tastes, and people who don't always follow the "rules" are welcome( you might be interesting) I s this ok ?

Everyone seems to be reading something into this thread that just isn;t there. Nobody is going to have their cruise 'ruined' or obsess because they glimsed someone wearing casual clothing on formal nights or even on "casaul" nights! Nobody has actually said that so don't read it into it. What many Do think is proper and should be followed is the suggested or recommended attire on a couple nights a week when you are requested to dress in a suit or a Tux and the rest of the time wear clothing that is approprate for a nice night out on the town such as slacks and shirt. I asked the question in the Chit-Chat board about who actually dresses up for formal nights and 95% wear either a coat and tie or Tux and fully 70% state they wear a Tux! Tell you what, I will not be influenced or intimidated into NOT wearing the suggested attire because 'you' don't want to or think I am being pretentious. <G>

Good judgment comes from experience. Sometimes experience comes from bad judgment.
