I am going to assume you are not talking about formal nights for the sake of this discussion.The above poster only posted part of the "PROPER DINING ATTIRE" guidelines from the Celebrity website (found under ONBOARD EXPERIENCE >> DINING >> PROPER DINING ATTIRE).
On the other nights, on my recent cruise, there were definitely people in jeans. They were not worn or tattered, no holes, etc. In the Infinity dailies, there was no mention of jeans when dress code was discussed, just no pants, with holes or tears for "smart casual" nights.
When you look up dress code on the Celebrity website, it states:
Smart Casual and Above
Ladies: Skirt or pants (no holes, rips or tears) complemented by sweater or blouse.
Gentlemen: Pants (no holes, rips or tears) with sports shirt or sweater. Shirts must have sleeves.
Note: T-shirts, swimsuits, robes, bare feet, tank tops, baseball caps and pool wear are not allowed in the main restaurant or specialty restaurant at any time. Shorts and flip flops are not allowed in the evening hours. Additionally, guests are asked to follow the "Smart Casual and Above" dress code in the Celebrity Theater for all evening performances.
Hope this helps.
The above poster only posted part of the "PROPER DINING ATTIRE" guidelines from the Celebrity website (found under ONBOARD EXPERIENCE >> DINING >> PROPER DINING ATTIRE).I posted what I found on the website when I searched dress codes. That is what I would do when I want to know what the dress code is. What I posted was the result.
Thank you all for the feedback. I think I will stick to jeans for breakfast and lunch and bring skirts and dress pants for dinner. No need to feel uncomfortable for bringing the wrong clothesThe dress code is often overlooked by maitre'd. As I stated we saw men with messy jeans
You know, it really aggravates me that Celebrity causes this to be an issue since the website gives different information depending on where you look. You would think they could figure this out.Agreed.
Is anybody out there listening????
Thank you all for the feedback. I think I will stick to jeans for breakfast and lunch and bring skirts and dress pants for dinner. No need to feel uncomfortable for bringing the wrong clothesHow dare you downgrade our MDR with dress pants. We have a place for people like you, its called steerage, and while you there, a member of the Gestapo SS will pay you a visit to improve your attitude on the proper way to dress while on our ship. LOL
I have just done my first Celebrity Cruise on Eclipse, having done my first on RC last year, and I expected everyone (well mostly the ladies), to be wearing diamond tiaras and full evening suit attire for the men after reading this forum for the last year. If not you were either shot at dawn or made to walk the plank.
The reality was completely different. I thought the dress code on the Eclipse was less adhered to than on the Brilliance last year by a very large margin. Lots of jeans and t-shirts to be seen in the MDR even on formal nights. Of course there were also lots of very well presented cruisers also just not a very large majority as I had seen before.
I think there is some exaggeration going on here - jeans & t-shirts in the MDR on formal nights? I don't think soTis true I tell ya.
On the Century in May, we saw a diner in jeans and a t-shirt. It was a teenager with adults whom I assume were his parents. The adults were appropriately dressed. Go figure!My guess, having raised teenagers, was that the parents were in "pick your battle" mode.
Tis true I tell ya.We observed the same thing on the May 7 Eclipse Baltic cruise, so Rool is not exaggerating. Yes, there were lot of people in suits, sport coats, and tuxes, kilts, etc., but at least in our section of the MDR, there were jeans on formal nights. More on smart casual nights. This was a very diverse cruise with a lot of cultures present and maybe that is why no one enforced the dress code. Who knows?
Seriously, we only noticed because having read so much on this forum about Celebrity we expected the dress code to be so much higher.
Jeans were very much more prevailant on smart casual nights as were round neck T Shirts but we did also see more than one case on each formal night.
It didn't bother me, it was just an observation, but completely conflicted with our idea of what the cruise would be like from reading on here. We were speaking to other cruisers who said that if they had turned up dressed as they were on Princess they would have been turned away, I wouldn't know if that's the case or not.
So there you go, hopefully someone else on the 24 July Cruise to the Baltics will back me up just in case I was hallucinating after the flights of fancy in the Martini bar
