Being I was a member of management at the time - albeit for TVA and not for NCL - I still felt that would have been tacky.

Back to Linda's question, you can get away with it if you dress it up with dressy evening jewelry (i.e. rhinestone necklace and earrings, or something like that.)

would be under dressed with a Dress suit ( pants , & blazer) ?
That is fine. Bear in mind we are talking Carnival here, and formal nights on Carnival tend to be more liberal as to the type of dress. Don't take that as a put-down of Carnival since I happen to think very highly of their cruises. It's just that what is acceptable on a formal night on Carnival is much different than what is acceptable on Holland America (as an example).

I wouldn't spend much time worrying about it.

The whole formal night dress code really worried me on my last (but soon to be not only) cruise. I really stressed myself out and, I really ďangeredĒ my husband trying to get prepared.
After a ton of arguing, I finally got my flannel shirt and work boot wearing husband into a pair of khakis and button down shirt. I still thought he would stick out like a sore thumb, without a nice suit on. Well, he didnít. Tons of men had on the same type of clothing. My $45.00 dress from fashion bug worked out well also.
I really think so many of us worry too much about the little stuff; we forget weíre in it to have some fun. Just wear whatever you like. Iím sure a pants suit or a little dress will do just fine.
