During the day, sportswear and casual clothes are suggested.
Guidelines for wear from 5:30 pm and throughout the evening are:
Formal: A Dinner Jacket or dark business suit for gentlemen and a full length evening gown, cocktail dress or trouser suit for ladies.
Smart Casual: An open neck shirt and slacks for gentlemen and a dress, skirt and blouse or trouser suit outfit for ladies. Shorts and T-Shirts are not permitted in the Dining Rooms.
Okay, that is directly from Princess. This is directly from me: You should dress the same in the anytime dining rooms as you would in the traditional dining room. If you want to be more casual, dine in the Horizon Court during the day or in the Cafe Caribe after 5:30pm.
I noticed a LOT more jeans in the dining rooms this trip out (Diamond 5/15)...not sure if it was just cause people thought that was dressy enough or not. Wish I hadn't lugged some many clothes, heck if I knew people were now into jeans in the dining room, I would do that too!
Naaaaaa, I like dressing nicer for dinner, it sorta makes the cruise special.
I would change back to traditional though next time, didn't care for the jumping around to the different dining rooms each night.
