So after reading alot of threads I see that NCL is very laid back about dress codes. Thats great since my husband "doesnt believe in sport coats" ha.
My question is...I LIKE to wear dresses...not floor length, formal, wedding attire. But cute knee length dresses (like easter dresses)..am I gonna stick out like a sore thumb in these? I don't really wear shorts alot and now I'm wondering if I should go shopping for some!!
Thanks Again Cruisecritics
I just came back from the Jewel. On our particular cruise, I saw several women with those sort of dresses when we were in the warm weather and around dinner time. The Jewel has two dress up or not nights, where you can wear formal or semi formal attire if you so choose. On our cruise, not very many people chose to dress up for those nights. I wore a dressy outfit for dinner on those two nights (chiffon skirt and top, and other night velvet pants and sparkly top). I felt that I stuck out somewhat, but I did not really care. We ate at Le Bistro on those nights which is dressier than the other restaurants. I saw a few gals in even dressier outfits. However, during the day and on non-dressy days, most people were very, very casual.
I guess, just wear what you are comfortable in because the cruise is very casual.
