Has anyone cruised the NCL SEA out of Houston? We're 1st time cruisers with alot of guestions, so please help if you can.

Is the dress code relaxed enough to get by with nice jeans and a nice blouse, or shirt ( for men)? With the exception of formal night? Our friends traveled Carnival last month and said they were able to wear jeans in the dining rooms with a nice blouse(her) and a button shirt (him). Would you be turned away if you did not have the right attire???

Is there lobster on any night?

Any suggestions for excursions? Has anyone done the glass bottom boat and does it include all the snorkeling gear? I read somewhere that it does.

From personal experience, You will be turned away if in shorts. We arrived back form a ship excursion minutes before they shut the doors for early seating on the Dream. They allowed us to run to cabin and change. I suspect if they were dress jeans, no holes, etc., you would be fine. But final authority will be up to the Maitre De. Tip him nicely on the first day...

And lobster is usually served on Friday or Saturday night.

Since you will be on the NCL Sea, you will be "freestyle dining". They have a very relaxed dress code and you will see many people on your cruise in jeans.

Hey Nancy,
Thanks for the reply. Does this mean we can wear jeans in the dining rooms?? I'm really stressing over this dress code thing. We're first time cruisers with two teenage sons and our style is very casual. I don't want to have to go buy suits and dresses just to eat. Thanks in advance for your reply.

I don't advise jeans, though you may be able to get away with them. Chinos or other slacks and polo-type shirts will probably be more appropriate and in tune with what is expected at dinner in the dining room.

Although I agree with Karen as to what is preferable - I guarantee that if you are on the Sea out of Houston, there will be a number of guests wearing jeans to the dining room in the evening. I would say that your teenage sons would be okay - if they are nice jeans and not paired with a scruffy looking t-shirt.

Thank you so much for the additional reply. Now I can actually relax and quit worrying over the dress code. We've bought new Levi's , the dark original blue kind and dress shirts. So again, thank you so much, your expert advise is greatly appreciated.
