NO one will be offended and you will enjoy the night too! Remember, it is normal to run back to the room and change into something comfortable after dinner and pictures!

It is probably the only time "modern-day" kids will ever see a formal-set table with all the different glasses, plates, and utensils.
I remember the first time my youngest daughter sat at the table and saw all those plates forks and knives....she looked at me and said "what do I do". I told her work your way from the outside to the inside. I agree on it being a great cultural experience for kids or anyone for that matter. Make the best of it and enjoy!!

My daughters have learned so much just from the dining experience alone on ships. Manners, respect, kindness, just to name a few. I wouldn't trade any of it. When we dine out at fine restaurants at home, they are the best behaved girls in the place and that's the best compliment any parent can ever get.

Thanks (maybe those offended should stay home and go out to dinner at a elegant restuarant)

Karrie, my last cruise, just a few weeks ago, on the Liberty supports most of the other posts and also my own desire on dress in the dining room. The Matre D in the Silver Olympian Dinning Room made it quite clear the first night about the dress code, he was nice about it but also firm. By night 2 he reiterated it and by night three I saw them turning people away. By night four no one needed reminding. It does not need to be Black Tie but please for fine dining look the part.

By the way they also enforced dress code at the buffet. Simply no bare chest for men and a wrap around below the waist for women if you are wearing a swim suit. I liked the rules, it enhanced my cruise experience

I always wonder if these are the same people that would wear jeans to their high school prom It's an event, for many people, a once in a lifetime experience....

This could be a once in a lifetime experience! Be Cinderella and Prince charming for a night....

Thats my point no one wears jeans to a prom. I really don't care what you wear so don't worry. You aren't on any cruise I'm planning to go on, so thats cool with me. Enjoy your jeans
