We've been going on Princess since 2003 and all that time, shorts is not considered "smart casual." If someone wants to wear shorts to dinner, they can go to the Horizon Court, or get food from the International Cafe in the Piazza (the bottom deck of the Grand Atrium) or from the poolside pizzeria or grill, and still get a good meal even when not dressed up.
