T-shirts and shorts are specifically mentioned as not being acceptable for any dinner seating. Blue jeans are generally allowable on the casual nights. On all casual nights, a collared shirt of some type and long pants are the expectation.

For formal nights you will at least need slacks, shirt, tie, and a sport coat. Two formal nights on a 7-day cruise. One formal night on cruises of lesser duration. But fear not, because if you want to stick to a t-shirt and dungarees you can always go to the buffet for dinner. They serve an evening meal in the buffet which is really pretty decent, and normally has many of the items that are on the main dining room menu.

Guess he can adopt also, but adapt would be better!

He can adopt a new practice of not yelling, and therefore would have made an adaptation in his speach?

Dave- CCL should hire you to re-write their FAQ section on the topic. Your explanation was easier to understand.

Tony,
The beauty of Carnival is in the dining room,You don't need a tie or jacket.I have been on 10 Carnival ships and my husband wears slacks,and a nice shirt only.IT is fine.If you choose to go to formal night ,then you need a suit,or slacks,tie,and jacket.Be comfortable cowboy.Jeans and shorts are good for dinner by the buffet,not dining room.

Hubby wears a suit on formal night (WITH his Eastern Diamond Back Rattlesname Cowboy Boots)

however, a shirt, tie and dress slacks will be sufficient. He wears a Polo and Khakis for the other nights.

BTW, just picked up a pair of Dockers for $9.99 (regularly $49.00-69.00) at Dillards. Grab a pair on sale and wear them every night. Hubby changes back to shorts after dinner.
