I truly miss it though. We really loved the old style. It's not necessarily a bad thing. We pack way less. I now wear nice shorts and flip flops to dinner in the MDR. I was truly happy to see 2 guys getting turned away with sleeveless shirts on the 1st night. When jeans started to get through it pissed me off. I happen to think a nice short with a nice shirt looks better than jeans and sneakers, but that's just me. On my first cruises I actually wore a tux twice and a Dinner Jacket once on formal night. I LOVED it. Last week, I swear to you I saw not ONE tux on our Valor cruise. So sad. Mostly everyone was dressed very nicely on Elegant nights with many suits and, of course, the women went full out. Nary a bum in the MDR. Yet my outfit of slacks and dress shirt with no tie or jacket matched every other guy. My previously every night dress has now become "elegant". Forget about formal. I, of course, realize I can still dress to the nines. I just miss the tuxes. It's really strange. In my 30's I didn't want to get dressed up and I did. And in my 50's I want to get dressed up and I don't. Pathetic. Someone bring back tuxes PLEASE. I don't want to go on a stuffy line. Our line was way fun and we still dressed up. Oh well....
I mean this with all sincerity, and not to be a smarta$$$, as you seems like a really nice person I would love to have a drink with. But absent tank tops and baseball caps, why do you care so much what other people wear?
One of the most elegant nights of my life was my first time in a tux, for the junior prom, my date looked radiant in her expensive dress, I was with about 20 others high schoolers who were all dressed to the nines, and where were we to eat? The Olive Garden, I dont have a clue what anyone else was wearing. I was focused on us (and on my dates dress
I am confused as to why you say you dont want a stuffy line, but you want to wear tuxes.
Sorry, but after this video, I will never have respect for the Carnival dining room again. If some fool can do this, I can wear jeans on casual night.. Polos and khakis for me
