Thanks for the added insight. While I would not hide under the table if I was seated next to a person wearing a tux while I was in slacks and a collared shirt, Mrs. Phoenix Cruiser might be more self conscious. I don't doubt we will each have our own piece of luggage and then share a third suitcase, as besides the dressier stuff we need to fit in our snorkel gear, binoculars. And of course we can always avail ourselves of the self service and ship's laundry service. So all will be well. Hey, we are going to Bora Bora.
Speaking of dress in the tropics, on our Celebrity Xpedition Galapagos cruise the main directive was you were frowned on if you wore the same clothes you had just hiked over the lava rocks on to dinner, but if you didn't stink all was well.
That's so funny, about Xpedition. I had forgotten that a few guests showed up in what they had indeed worn to hike over lava rocks, etc. I did briefly wonder when they showered, but tried to get it out of my head! We always like to shower before dinner.
AND, we have a palm tree right outside our bedroom at home. No wonder we have to shower before dinner. My car thought it was 101 today briefly! Of course it was wrong.
However, don't expect to find any self service dinner venues on Crystal. Not before nor after drydock, unless you consider the Trident, which I believe closes at 6 pm.
