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.

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"

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

Hum, we may have been underdressed when we went to brunch then. I put on a sundress, sandals and a light sweater. DH wore khakis and a polo shirt. I didn't feel too dressed up at all and we were both still comfortable.

Compared to some others we saw in Palo though, we were overdressed, LOL.

We dress Sunday nice (sundress and khakis) and love brunch for lunch around noon.

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.

I think when it comes to dress code they can make broad rules like "no shorts or jeans." You could certainly argue that nice jeans are no less dressy than khakis, but many people do see it that way.

Wellp, I stand corrected...just texted my exwife and she reminded me that I had worn my black jeans with nice black loafers.

[QUOTE=carissa1970;48402208]Grape pizza? Please tell me about that, because it sounds terrible.


The grape pizza does sound terrible, but it's amazing! We are doing brunch on our next cruise just for this (although all of the food is wonderful...this was the best for us)!

Here's a picture I found online showing the various pizzas available at brunch. The grape & gorgonzola pizza in in the top left. One of my favorites.
