Do men wear pants to dinner every night or can they wear khaki shorts and a polo shirt? I know on the formal and semi formal that they're dressed up but was wondering about the other nights. Thanks!

The suggested dress code from DCL says "no shorts, tank tops, bathing suits for dinner". There are those who choose to disregard this request.

From the DCL site:

Question
What should I wear to dinner?
Answer
Dining Dress requirements vary by venue or theme night on your cruise. In general, most meals are "Cruise Casual"no shorts, swimwear or tank tops. Most cruises also have special theme nights with additional attire requirements. Here's a breakdown of these events by cruise itinerary.

On 3-night cruises:
"One cruise casual nightno shorts, swimwear or tank tops
"One pirate or tropical night (deck party)
"One "dress-up night"jacket for men, dress or pantsuit for women

On 4-night cruises:
"First night: cruise casualno shorts, swimwear or tank tops
"One pirate or tropical night (deck party)
"One "dress-up night"jacket for men, dress or pantsuit for women
"Final night: cruise casualno shorts, swimwear or tank tops

On 7-night cruises:
"First night: cruise casualno shorts, swimwear or tank tops
"Three additional "cruise casual" nightsno shorts, swimwear or tank tops
"One pirate or tropical night (deck party)
"One formal and one semi-formal nightformal wear for men: tuxedo or suit; for women: gown or dress; semi-formal wear for men: suit/jacket; for women: dress or pantsuit.

Dress code at Palo on all cruises:
"Men: dress pants and shirt or jacket
"Women: dress or pantsuit
"Please no jeans, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops or tennis shoes

Dress code at Remy on all cruises:
"A tuxedo or jacket (sports or suit jacket) is required with dress pants for men. Ties are optional.
"A cocktail dress, pant suit or skirt/blouse is required for women.
"Please no jeans, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops or tennis shoes.

Others have posted the dress code rules. I always wear pants in the MDRs for dinner. I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing shorts for dinner, but some men did. Some also wore their Nascar hats while they ate.

Enjoy your cruise.

DCL specifically asks for no shorts in the dining rooms.

However, according to most reports, this is not enforced.

Palo and Remy are for the most part enforced.

Thanks everyone! I knew what DCL states but I was just wondering if people followed the rules or did their own thing. Also, I'm trying not to over pack for DH!

The nice things is, if you're only going to be in slacks for dinner and you usually don't make a habit of running a post-dinner 10k before having a mud fight, you can totally get away with one pair of long pants per cruise, two if you're fancy and want both black and tan.

I would say they are more "guidelines" then rules just like the pirates code. You can follow them any way you wish and they will not ask you to leave the dinning room. Except for Palo and Remi

Yes, there is not much (or any) enforcement, but DCL's own wording says "Dining Dress requirements ". Sounds like DCL feels it's more than a guideline.

True but have you ever read anywhere either on the Dis or another board where someone was asked to leave the main dinning room because they had shorts on?

I agree that there's no enforcement of it. Possibly DCL is relying on "Personal Responsibility" for enforcement? :goodvibes

If I go to a land based restaurant that has dress requirements, I dress accordingly. On a cruise I do the same.

Going to a restaurant on land and on a cruise are very different you don't normally have to pack other clothes with you when you go to one.

Exactly. When I'm paying $25/bag for checked luggage, packing two complete outfits for each day is ridiculous. I've dined at restaurants far nicer than the banquet setup on a cruise ship in shorts or jeans, I don't get dictating the dress code for MDR when I've spent thousands to cruise and have very limited dining options onboard.

tajz90 03-07-2013 08:22 AM

You'll be surprised by the amount of people who get upset about shorts in the MDR, but think its ok to walk around open decks/clubs with alcohol you carried on. One is a suggestion, one is a rule.

Hey, if he wants to wear shorts, awesome, go for it. My husband wears jeans most nights and feels comfortable in them.
