Fivepoints,
You are wasting your breath with "fancy tea" - if they have to ask what "smart casual" is, they won't have the foggiest idea what to wear at tea (fancy or not)!

Island and Penny,
I totally agree! What I wonder though is who are these people and where/how were raised. Why do we keep seeing these threads on how and when to dress and how and when to tip!?!

Lighten Up! None of us, not even you, not even me were born with a nautical spoon in our mouths! We had to learn. And considering the bizarre dress code in some of our US establishments, it's easy to understand how someone who has never been on a cruise would be lost trying to figure out what in the world to wear. Especially since we are all trying to limit our baggage quota, there is little margin for error.

Sorry, but it has everything to do with exercising proper etiquette which should have been learned at home.

To answer your question you keep saying these threads about dressing because everyone have different oppinion as you can see some people say a jean skirt is okay then some say it is not so it does not hurt to get a for sure answer on some things therefore the topic is asked again closer to first time cruiser packing time as is mine is fast approaching and I want to be sure of somethings before I end up with a bunch of uncasual clothes to dine in that is who these people are, and I was raised by my wonderful mother to be a decent and kind person until someone ask questions such as yours !!!! Thank you very much

I am sorry but you have learned proper etiquette; but not proper manners to respect others and their questions. Where and how were you raised with no manners or kindness to other people??

Now, she's got you there, Chuck. Mean spiritness, lack of kindness and cruel statements serve no one well. My mother used to say "You get more bees with honey than vinegar". I would speak up if I saw someone mistreating you and I would hope you would do the same for others.

Nita, On formal nights you will see people dressed from complete black tie and gowns to what some would consider Sunday Church outfits. On the more casual nights for women would be nice pant suits, sun dresses, or even a nice capri outfit, for men you will see some in the dining room with suits or most in nice dockers and golf shirts or even nice slacks and hawiian shirts. Carnival does state no shorts, tank tops and jeans in the dining room. So just pack like you were going out for a nice dinner or getting ready to go to church. Personally we love the formal nights, its the only time I can get my hubby in a Tux, of course you see less tux's on a Carnival ship then you would see on your more premium lines, but hey its still fun.
