Princess does have "Anytime dining" which allows you to eat at whatever time you want and not be tied down to a traditional set dining time. As for the formal nights, it is possible to dress nicely for formal night without messing with tuxedos and ball gowns. It can be really nice to get dressed up and have some family photos taken.

Lots of folks dressed up on NCL. My gf made an appointment with the photographers, and had lovely Christmas pictures. My family opts out of dressing up. I like the choice!
