Ok, since my hubby and I have never been on a cruise I'm a little confused and could use some help. We are going on the Dawn in April and are a little confused when it comes to dinner. I see a lot of people say "resort casual" but can someone please explain to me what this is? I guess I am wondering if we are allowed to wear jeans or shorts in both the main dining rooms and the specialty restaurants. Someone please fill me because I am so very lost.

Hi to You,

Resort casual is just about anything that makes you feel comfortable....NO SHORTS in the main diningrooms in the evening though....I wear a nice pair of dress slacks and a nice short sleeved shirt..my wife wears a nice comforable dress or skirt...You will see people in all sorts of dress...and if I'm not mistaken, jeans are considered "resort casual now"...just not the torn or ragged looking ones...."Dress up Night has been down scaled too... I wear a sportscoat one night with a shirt and tie, the next night I were a sports coat and a nice shirt and no tie...You won't see may tuxedos or cocktail dresses, but if you have them, of course wear them and strutt your stuff...After many years of cruising, I welcome the "resort casual"...but it's personal choice...Go and have a smashing good cruise...that's the important part of cruising....I'm off in 9 days and can't wait...

We usually wear khakis and a nice sportshirt, either silk or cotton, and nice pair of Todd's loafers or some such....
Unfortunately, no shorts at dinner in the main dining room, but anything goes if you decide to eat in the upstairs buffet restaurant one or 2 nights...

For women, anything you would wear out to a nice summer lunch - sundress or skirt, or a pair of cotton pants and a blouse. For guys, Dockers and a golf shirt seems to be most common. We've been on NCL a few times (going again next month!), and we have gotten to the point where my husband doesn't even pack a tie. If you want to wear a jacket and tie, plenty of guys do, and sometimes I want to wear a nicer dress - my little black cocktail dress, for example. None of these options will stand out as unusual. They really mean it when they say "freestyle."
