You might feel just a tad under-dressed if you did that. Many ships ask that pax observe the dress code of the evening throughout the ship, however, there are always those who do simply prefer to do as they please.

But we are talking about NCL here, where there is not much of a dress code anymore.

NCL is far from alone in that regard. We saw people in shorts, T-shirts, and flip-flops in the show lounges and casino last week on Carnival Victory, and also on Princess and HAL. (And, this included formal nights.) Celebrity is the only mainstream line we've sailed recently that applies the dress code to the show lounges, as well.

In fact, when we were on NCL last year, the maitre d' of the main dining room turned people away who were wearing shorts or blue jeans. We saw this several times during the cruise. And, on at least one occasion, a man was asked to remove his baseball cap when entering the dining room.

But to answer the original question, polo shirts, shorts and sandals seem to be OK for the show lounges...but bring along a pair of nice pants, just in case.

Ditto on what Dave said...part of the Freestyle concept is to do as you please.

On the Dawn in 2004 we did see folks turned away at dinner only for shorts, etc. but they were acceptable during other dining hours. What's wrong with this?

I realize part of the fun of cruising is the formal attire but not everyone feels that way, hence Freestyle!

Their rules say nothing about wearing shorts, T shirts or sandals anywhere on the ship except the specialty or main dining rooms.

Thank you for all your advice.Last year we took our first cruise,it was 17 day and was our first one.I have learned a lot from these message boards,you are all great!!
On our cruise we dressed for dinner for the dining rooms.The thing is near the end of the trip,we were getting tired and just too lazy to dress for dinner,so we ate at the buffett.So that is where the question came in,do we go to different thing's in shorts or did we have to change?We love to be outside and I really didn't want to be in heels all night.We did go to the theater twice in shorts.Most of the people were dressed up.Some were in shorts.I must admit I felt uncomfortable,but comfy lol.We are taking our second cruise in April 2007,and this time I want to know what is right or wrong.
Thanks again
Marilyn

LisaP,
When I read that I wanted to shout YEAH! I owned a restaurant for four years (in the South of all places to do this) and more than once, I have gone to a table and (always nicely) asked the gentleman to remove his ball cap! Those rare times I was refused, I simply asked them to leave - my restaurant, my rules! Usually, in those cases, the wife would intervene and the ball cap would be removed.
