We have been following this thread from the beginning and have the same question a few others have raised namely- for those of you who have cancelled or are cancelling your Cunard voyages because of a language change to the dress code, which line(s) are you going to switch to that require a dark suit or sport jacket for men, every night in every venue? A quick sampling: Oceana-no, Regent-no, Azamara-no, Silversea-no, all river cruise lines-no. After 50 plus cruises on ships of all sizes and types, we will be "test driving" Cunard for the first time next year. One of the deciding factors was that I can & will wear some of the beautiful clothes I own which spend most of their time in my closet. We fully intend to comply with the dress code as written, but I don't imagine our voyage experience will be decided by what someone may wear in the pub or casino. So for those apparently giving up Cunard voyages (and cruising in general) it will be interesting where they find the always formal atmosphere they are looking for.
I am not quite sure I understand the statement. You can always wear what you want. You could wear a tuxedo each night at diner on Oceania, Regent, Azamara, Carnival, etc. I have not sailed them (yet) however I doubt anyone would stop you. For me, I would not give up cruising, just that the price on Cunard would have to be price competitive with other cruise lines
(all else being equal)
and they will not be able to charge ANY
premium based on dress code.
Personally, having a cruise booked for July I hope not too many people wear bathing suits, baseball caps and sleeveless t-shirts to afternoon tea. Dressing like that for the dining rooms or Verandah for lunch wouldn't bother me that much but not tea.
