Different cruises have different dress codes and planning what to pack can be a challenge sometimes. The wording is oh so subtle…. Let’s take Celebrity’s dress code. One of the descriptions – “Smart Casual & Above”. That’s perplexing for sure. So you can be smart casual both below and above?
Azamara Cruises goes for “resort casual” whereas Carnival calls it “cruise casual” while Norwegian Cruise Lines has no formal dress code. In fact they are very laid back. Jeans in the main dining room and speciality restaurants are acceptable as long as they aren’t overly faded, with holes or tears or worn below the hips.
No dinner for you buddy!
Cunard at least holds tradition near and dear with either formal or semi formal and when they say formal – they mean it. Evening gowns for the ladies and tux or dark suit with collar and tie for the men. Even Cunard have decided however that they are going to cut down on the number of formal nights. Most men are delighted but we women do love to dress up.
Now that wasn’t that hard, was it?
