Except for formal nights, does my husband need to wear a coat and tie to the dining room or will a shirt and tie do?

Actually on the non-formal nights there is no need for a tie. They are usually called "casual" dress evenings and that means slacks and some sort of collared shirt to me - to include polos and hawaiian shirts if in warm waters.

Royal Caribbean has "smart casual" that says coats and ties for men. I don't remember him needing a coat other formal nights when we went on out other cruises with them.

It depends on where the cruise is going. Some have that smart casual suggestion and some don't. Even for the smart casual I don't wear a tie and have never had a problem.

I think the Casual dress has been to casual. On the first and last night I understand because of limited clothing not having luggage. There were alot of people in jeans and shorts. Thats McDonald casual. I know many want to dress as they want but I think that it just does not fit in those beautiful dining rooms.

But isn't it true that shorts and blue jeans are typically listed as being "not allowed" in the dining room at dinner service?

How does the staff enforce without insulting their guests and rsiking a loss in tips. Maybe non waitstaff outside the door enforcing dresscode?

Mark,

I've seen the maitre'd on more than one cruise stop people at the door and politely tell them to change clothes. They are quite diplomatic about it. Are you saying people routinely were seated at dinner in shorts on your Adventure cruise?

I commonly wear shorts to breakfast or lunch in the dining room since it is allowed for those meals. But I agree that it should not be allowed for dinner seatings.....first night excepted because of the luggage delivery.
