On the 3 night/4 night cruises I people dressed much more casual... we just got off the 7 night Fantasy though, and I would have felt out of place without dressing. Dang, people really got fancy!! One thing, they are only going to have them on for a hour or so at dinner... so you can rewear a couple nights too. heck, I wore two different skirts both twice... just added new tops.

When my kids hit early teens, I would bring only 2 pair of jeans for regular nights on 7+ night cruises. They wore them over and over because they would only wear them to dinner and the show and then put shorts back on for fun at night. We try to pack light. If an accident occurs, we just wash.

Dress how you feel comfortable. Dress your children how they will feel comfortable. The ones that would be bothered by it, will be bothered by anything.

I would bet that your kids will look just lovely no matter if they are wearing shorts or a pair of khakis. And by that I mean that you are even concerned says a lot. Let them wear what they will be comfortable in and enjoy themselves.

To me, what is of greater concern is manners. I would much rather have a child at my table in a pair of shorts with polite manners and behavior than a child dressed to the nines who is obnoxious and rude.


Enjoy your cruise!

We have all gone wearing shorts before. I think the only cruise I brought pants was Alaska. And I definitely don't wear a dress every night. My husband wears shorts and t-shirts every night except formal/semi-formal.

We did Alaska, but my DS was in either nice jeans, khakis, cords, etc.. And a polo, sweater, or the like. I dressed him how I would if we were going to a family restaurant at home, at 3 years old.

We are just off the Magic in the Caribbean on a 7 night cruise, and from where we were sitting, ALL the boys we could see were in shorts on the casual nights. Some wore tshirts and some wore polos.

I probably shouldn't confess this, but my DH even wore long shorts one night because he was literally just in from a shore excursion and didn't have time to change (or we'd have been even later than we were.) No one said anything, and honestly, we were in such a hurry that we didn't even think about it until later.

I really don't see what is wrong with anyone whingeing shorts on a non formal/ semi formal night. On My last cruise I wore shorts to the dinning room several times as I was either to lazy to change into pints or I wasn't paying attention to the time and rather then be late for dinner I just put on a polo shirt.
