Yes, they are boys. I do plan on reusing the shorts for the evening outfits. They are actually very excited about getting "dressed" for dinner as of right now. Especially for elegant night. Of course, this may change after we are on the ship! I also have 3 swim trunks in their plethora of clothes. I did have 2, but then the "what if something happens" kicked in & added another! :/
Don't forget socks to go with the dress pants

Our 16 & 19 year old sons are going as well. I told them they needed something for the day & something for dinner every night as well. I imagine they can get by with a bit less as they won't be near as messy as the little ones.
I thought I over packed on our first cruise last year, but actually ran out of clothes for my kids. Went through 2 sets of clothes per day(sometimes more if our daughter wanted to change after dinner for kid's club). A lot of stuff ended up being wet from wearing wet bathing suit underneath, sweating(It was August in the Caribbean), or just seemed dirty from being in port all day. They did re-wear some shorts that seemed fine, but shirts were an issue for us. Packing extra-extra for our cruise this month. Luckily kid's clothes are not too big!I understand! It seems like I am packing sooooo much for them!
