Default Blue jean skirt for casual

I know you can't wear jeans in the dinning room. But what about a long blue jean skirt? Is this frowned upon.

TIA Katricia

Depends on the ship and what you are wearing with it.

I think if you dress it up it would be OK for a casual night.

We will be on Celebrity's Mercury. I was going to wear a white blouse. I also have a black blazer if I need to wear it also.

Thanks, Kat

That would be cute! As for appropriateness, you'd have to ask the veterans about what they've seen.

You're fine with a denim skirt... I never go on a cruise without one! It's one of those things that you can use more than once and save on packing!

Hi Katricia,
We are on the Mercury with you. Welcome.
I wore a denim skirt (calf length) on an Alaska cruise on Princess. No problem at all.
Maybe I'll bring mine and we can both feel comfortable.
See you in March.
Joanne

Hi

"I never go on a cruise without one"

I guess that is what makes us all different people. I never go on a cruise with one.
My denim stays home. Jeans, skirts, whatever the item. I have other clothing I much prefer to bring with me. Casual evenings I like to do casual to dressy.
But that is just me. For a casual outfit I would wear a pair of brick colored silk slacks with a black knit top. (fine knit~not heavy).

I was on Mercury last March and had a fantastic time.
She is a lovely ship.

Enjoy your cruise
