I guess you missed my point. I did not mention shorts you did I too like to dress up as I do have lovely attire as well and I have been on more than 20 cruises I was saying some cruises not all should be more relaxed like men in nice slacks with nice shirts, maybe even a sweater same for woman.
And before you say it I realize there is a lido buufet where I could eat. There are some cruise lines (more premium than Celebrity or Hal) that do offer this to Alaska. I was just saying it would be nice to see some of the other lines do this. By the way I do wear shorts in the diningroom for breakfast & lunch.

Are you trying to gather support for a request to the cruise lines for making some ships casual-only? You could certainly try requesting it, but I suspect that things will remain status quo for dress code. There seems to be a substantial number of cruise passengers who enjoy the formal nights. We personally like the casual style and have managed to go on Cruise West once. Will have to save a lot more pennies to go again, but I'd sure like to! (Incidentally, their casual style extends to all their cruises, whether Alaska, Cal. wine country, Baja Mexico or - now - the Northeast and the Great Lakes. That's one of their hallmarks, just like Freestyle is for NCL, "Fun Ships" for Carnival, etc.)

Karen,
A Cruise ship in the Great Lakes?? If a cruise ship showed up in the Milwaukee port I'd be on it in a heartbeat. Too bad RCCL don't take some of their older ships and do something like that. At least from May to October.

Actually, there are several cruises in the Great Lakes, but they are smaller ships. A smallish European liner at least used to run cruises from Chicago (sorry, not Milwaukee) to Quebec, but I think these itineraries are now only on truly small ships, either yacht-like or expedition-like, 100-200 passengers. They're not publicized like the others, and as gatorgirl mentioned, they are pricey.

Karen:
I think Regent Seven Seas is casual as well for Alaska & Bora Bora. I might check that one as I do not think they are as pricey as cruise west. Did you enjoy cruise west?

Thanks for the information. My wife and I are too spoiled to sail on smaller than a Vision class ship
