I've looked at some of the other posts about clothing and while most of you heavily suggest to wear khakis in the dining room, I was wondering if he could still get away with wearing jeans? We are a young couple and, well, I just prefer him in jeans! Maybe it's because he is always dressed up for work, I like to see him dressed down. But, I also don't want people to think we are being tacky. What do you think?

As long as they are reasonably new, he's wearing a nice shirt, and you're dressed to the nines, it's okay with me. (but then, I'm from Cali, and the definition of a formal meeting here is "socks required.")

I am from California and when I go to a nice upper class restaurant with linens, crystal, china and waiters in tucks I think it means a little more than jeans. You can always have dinner at the Lido which is casual, but in the dinning room dressy attire does not include jeans.

If you like to see him in jeans--fine--nobody in the buffet will mind. But for dinner in the dining room, please show a little consideration for the rest of us.

We found some good outfits tonight out of the closet, jeans free. Thanks for the honesty!

Desiree, I think once you see the dining room you will understand why. It's very opulent with table linens, fresh flowers, wait staff in tuxes, china and crystal stemware. He doesn't have to wear a suit every night. Slacks and a shirt are appropriate. Some men even wear tropical print shirts which falls in order of the trip and can look nice. BTW... first night in the dining room is casual. It allows for the crew to get passengers' luggage to their cabin. A'ndrea

Great attitude Karrie Must be why the dining rooms are becoming so much less of an elegant experience most cruisers enjoy.

To each his own, but a cruise ship is the last bastion where everyone, regardless of income or stature, can enjoy fine dining in a great atmosphere. It is probably the only time "modern-day" kids will ever see a formal-set table with all the different glasses, plates, and utensils. Why not take advantage of that atmosphere by enhancing it?

It is so funny to me that tropical prints are considered ok for the formal setting. I still think of them as tacky, even if we are in a tropical setting. I guess once I am on the cruise I will understand, but for now, it just seems so weird that that can be considered formal!

He is going to wear khakis with some button downs untucked. I'll make up by dressing up extra- I love any chance I can get! And for the formal night he is going to wear a nice suit. I would really rather not offend anyone on the cruise, so hopefully this will do.
