Yes they do I have heard.

And perfect attire for casual nights.

I still have my shirt I pick up in Maui years ago and it is like new (only wear it occassionally) and I agree on formal nights. We were on the Adventure recently and noticed the cruisers that dress DOWN on formal nights?
I agree that it has become much more lax on RCI's part.

I still have a picture somewhere of formal night on RCI. I was in a full length evening gown. That was back in the late 80s.

we haven't sailed RCI in a while but from what I've been reading their dress suggestions are more casual that the other lines. (aside from NCL) I would at least go with a dress shirt & no tie + regular shoes. What's the worst that can happen? Eat at the buffet for one evening.

On our last cruise on Independence, we had first seating and most of the time we felt overdressed, because some people from a couple of tables around us wore t-shirt almost every nigh, even on formal night. I could care less what people wear, but with the beautiful dining room on IOS, somehow I felt sad, just like something special was taken away.

On our last cruise,4-19-09,on the AOS,we saw t-shirts every night also,including formal night.We have also seen it on Carnival cruises.I do wish RCCI and Carnival would at least stop the t-shirts on formal night.With that said,I also don,t think everybody has to wear a 3 piece suit either on formal night.

It's only for a couple of hours, then after dinner you can change into shorts if you want. I don't understand why it is so difficult to look really nice for formal nights. To me, it adds to the ambience and the photographers take some marvelous pictures.

Let's face it—the liberals are taking over formal nights. They call it "CHANGE".

Very well said, Sonny; it's just not "change I can believe in."
