The real reason I am against doing Palo Brunch

I don't want to get dressed in the middle of the day.

Actually I haven't told my family we are doing brunch and I'm afraid that will be their objection also.

Lol! I hear you! My sister and I are doing the brunch just the two of us so no one else has to get up and dressed at any point.

Bah, for Palo brunch I just wear jeans and a tucked in collared short sleeve shirt. I am not underdressed compared to others there either.

So you will be going on your first vacation in a few months and have never actually been to brunch at Palo according to your countdown.

I've seen people turned away from the brunch when they show up in jeans (blue denim ones).

I am so happy I read this thread. I wouldn't have even thought about the dress code for brunch!

I have not yet had the pleasure of dining at Palo but I hope to one day. Based on the raves I've read I think if they requested that I wear polka dot pajamas I would do it. But that's just me.

For brunch? Wow. I've never done that for dinner, but have seen many folks wearing jeans for brunch.

In 11 cruises and multiple Palo brunches I've never seen anyone admitted in blue jeans. Black or white denim, or colored denim, yes. But not blue jeans. Khakis are great and I've never been told I couldn't wear cropped pants with nice shoes. I saw two men turned away (different brunches) when they turned up in blue jeans. One started an argument, saying the blue jeans were all he had to wear. The manager wasn't budging.

In 29 DCL cruises I have never seen anyone in Jeans at Palo...brunch or dinner. Our friend was turned away (I told him no jeans) and he had to go back and change.

I am going to caution others about this. We are not dressy people either, but the couple in front of us on our last cruise on the Wonder got turned away because the husband was wearing blue jeans. I nudged my husband and said "told you so"
