Norwegian Star is a freestyle boat. No your hubby do not have to bring a jacket and tie.

The ship does have formal nights, however that's optional as well on the ship.

In addition, try Cagney's Steakhouse. However, keep in mind that theirs additional fee.

Have a wonderful trip.

There's no need to pack a coat and tie. To eat Dinner in all the main restaurants, all he needs to pack is slacks and collared shirts, Dockers slacks and Polo/Golf or Hawaiian shirts will do just fine. Just remember to pack enough clothes to last the entire cruise.
Personally, I like dining in either of the "free" main restaurants onboard. They are Aqua and Versailles. Why pay extra to dine when the free food is delicous?

Thanks for the advise. I'm confused: Formal night is for everyone whether in dockers or a coat & tie? Also,do men need a coat in the specialty resturants?

Ellen,

on formel nights, one main dining room will be reserved for passengers in formal attire, while all other dining venues will be open to anybody. A coat is not required in the alternative restaurants.

Actually, you can even dine in the restaurant reserved for formal attire in NCL's resort casual attire on the "optional" formal nights.
Optional means optional with NCL.
Slacks and a collared shirt will suffice for men.

This is a little confusing.
What do you mean by the "optional" formal nights. The night it is formal is it for everyone whether you wear a coat & tie or not? What restaurnt does this take place in & is formal night free or is ther an additional charge. Thanks for your help & patience.

As Raoul wrote, NCL will set aside one of the main dining rooms, usually the smaller of the two, for formal dining as announced in the Freestyle Daily. Nonetheless, NCL will allow those dressed in resort casual to dine. The point of publishing in the Freestyle Daily which restaurant is formal is to group those dressing up together, making it appear more are dressing up than in reality. If half in the smaller main restaurant has dressed up, and everyone in the larger main restaurant hasn't, the real numbers of those dressing up on the whole ship is more like 25% or less rather than 50%.
I have never been denied dining in the published formal restaurant while dressed in resort casual clothes.
