Amen, CruiseCrasher! My hubby and I talk about the gorgonzola and grape pizza all the time whenever we mention Palo brunch. We're on the Magic in Alaska in 40 days and I can't wait to have it again. Yum! For those who are interested, it's one of their made-to-order thin crust style pizzas with "just right" sprinkling of crumbled gorgonzola cheese and halved red grapes. It's the unique, slightly sweet and salty combination that makes it delicious!

I usually look at the total outfit before determining which would be more dressy. We saw one gentleman during bunch that had on khakis also, but his were very loose, carpenter style, rolled up at the bottom (so khaki basically just described the color, LOL). His shirt was untucked and he was wearing flip-flops (which I thought were a big no-no).

In this case, I would definitely consider a person in nice blue jeans with a button down shirt to be dressed nicer.

So once again I had to explain to my DH (who wears jean shorts every day, all year long) that there was a dress code and I don't know why it wasn't enforced. He didn't believe me

I may get thrown off this board but DH and I tried it based on all the positive reviews here and neither of us liked it. But then neither of us are foodies so we don't have very refined palates. We are more pepperoni and sausage pizza kind of people

I am booked for Brunch at 10am on our Magic Cruise. Thought it was going to be too early but decided it will be the right time otherwise we wont be able to eat dinner. I wear a lot of jeans at home so quite like having the chance to dress up, have just bought a new dress from Marks and Spencer especially for the Brunch

I put my DH loves it. I'm vegan, so I've never tried it, though I do love the berry pizza they've made me in the past. We just got off the Magic, wasn't it heading to Europe next?

I have also witnessed multiple people turned away and change in order to eat with the rest of their party at Palo for both jeans and shorts. We had the private room in 2011 on the Wonder and the manager came to let us know that two of the guests who were on our reservation would not be joining us because they were wearing jeans and said they didn't bring anything that would comply with the dresscode. He even offered to provide them with clothing then as well as for our dinner reservation later in the cruise, but they declined.

We were on the May 5-9 Dream. We booked Palo brunch after we boarded. The cast member who took our reservation was very clear with us about the dress code. Maybe we looked like the type of people who wouldn't dress well Regardless we came away with a complete understanding of what we were expected to wear

One person (man) from my party was turned asked to change out of his blue jeans for brunch. My girlfriend and I both had on sundresses and nice sandals.

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 saw men wearing jeans when we had brunch at Palo. DH was ticked because he got sent back due to wearing nice dress shorts. He went and changed, but he then kept pointing out to me the people wearing jeans. I think it depends on the staff.

We're they wearing shorts? Not sure DH was comparing like things. LOL

My husband forgot to pack his usual 'Palo brunch' Dockers when we sailed the Fantasy last summer. The did offer to lend us a pair of black pants. They were size 40, and my DH is a 34! Luckily he still had his 'tux' pants. "NO WAY," was his reply when I suggested to him to just wear his tux pants and a button-down shirt. He was going to skip the brunch because he was too embarrassed to wear them with a casual shirt! I calmly assured him, 'people will not really be paying attention, and brunch is what we look forward to the MOST." So, we went, no one really noticed (didn't see anyone staring at him,) and it was the best brunch yet! We even secured a SECOND Palo brunch that same cruise when two others canceled.

Well, on our 6 nt Magic sailing last week, one 20 something YO woman came straight from the pool! She was being led to her table by the dining room manager and she was wearing a bathing suit under a dress type cover up. You could see the halter style swim top as her cover up was one of those pull on types w/out any sleeves what so ever. To top it off, she had wet hair in a messy pony tail and flip flops.

As she approached the table, her 3 dining companions (appeared to be her SO and one set of their parents all dressed nicely) stated, "well, we thought you weren't going to make it!"

Swimwear is not even acceptable for the main dining rooms, much less Palo. I'm not one to complain to CMs about dress code violations but I sure did as we were leaving that day.

This sounds perfectly reasonable.
