I'm one who doesn't follow the suggested formal dress code & the only reason I do go to the main dining room is simply because Princess doesn't offer the same food in both locations. Of course I don't wear jeans & a T shirt on formal evenings but I don't choose to wear a jacket & tie either on my vacation. Since Princess doesn't strictly enforce their policy to the letter, it still provides everyone the opportunity to dress as they please within reason and not be criticized for it.
If they really wanted a true formal affair for those that really wanted it, Princes should set aside one of the anytime dining room for formal optional on those evenings & it would please those that really desire it.

Peter1 - I think that since I saw both Formal and Semi-Casual used in the same sentence, I thought you were refering to both. Sorry - my error. Celebrity has changed to 2 dining categories only. Formal and Smart-Casual. That certainly now limits the nights that one needs to wear a coat and tie. I, for one, like the new policy. As you can see, I am a loyal Celebrity cruiser; however, I am also a very casual person and appreciate the new rules so much more than the old. It also makes it easier to pack! Thanks for your clarification.
