Patty - capri's were okay in the dining room on Summit. Formal nights you had to be formal to go into the dining room - jacket and tie for men - no ifs, ands or buts. Everyone stays dressed up after dinner also - not us - we would go back and my husband would put on his shorts. We got the evil eyes......
Also no flip flops. I am sure if you have dressy sandles that is okay but I didn't...
We also had anytime dining which we didn't like. They waited until the table was full before even passing out menus; then we sat with our plates in front of us when we were finished eating. That is one of my pet peeves.....
Anyway - this was just our opinion. I would give them another try again now knowing what they are about.
I guess Carnival is really loose on their elegant night dress code:
Men – A suit or tuxedo is not required but it is important to wear dress pants and dress shirt. Tie and jacket are optional. No sneakers or jeans. (military dress uniform is acceptable)
My husband got all excited until I bursted his bubble and told him the kids want to do formal.......
