No big deal.. Take a deep breadth and enjoy your dinner.

Just got back from the Marina. In Jacques one night they seated a guy in jeans. I wish I'd have known, I'd have worn them myself.

Saw men in jeans in the GDR at dinner time several nights on our Oct 25th - Nov 7th cruise

Interesting.  Here's a photo of the Oceania's Dress Code on page 4 of the Currents from day 1(December 7, 2019) of the California Coastal Cruise on the Sirena we  returned from.  Sounds like left and right hands have a communications problem.

Thanks for this. We're returning to Jacques tomorrow.and I'm going to take this and show it. I also want to meet with the food and beverage manager about another issue and will show it to her. (Oh, just had a chuckle. To get a second res there we're sharing a table. What if they are 'offenders'?)

Problem is  if people do not or cannot read & comprehend the request  then nothing changes

 

We are on Crystal & even though they ask pax to turn their cell phone to not ring in the dining room & theater ..people just carry on as normal

It is great having dinner & the next table the diners both have their phones out texting  ..maybe each other 🙂

And it is even sadder that Oceania's Maitre d's cannot or do not read..or comprehend...their own ship's dress codes.  (From Clo: "Checked with the maitre d' and he said the only things they say no to is shorts and flip flops.") 😟

We are currently on Rivera, our first O cruise.  We ate ate at Jacques last night and they seated  a passenger in jeans and suspenders, not nice jeans either.  We watched and they did not say a word to him.

 

On a brighter note, the food so far is ridiculously good.  Our dinner at Jacques was fantastic.  The ship is very clean and nice as well.

Yeah, I've seen that old boy on Oceania a few times. I think the suspenders are red & yellow striped &  wide, not like the type you'd wear with a suit.

My computer is pretty small so at least for now I'm considering showing it to the maitre d'.

I'm surprised your Currents on Day 1 didn't have the dress code in it.

You think he doesn't actually know what the dress code is? 🔇

It may have and I didn't pay attention.

It will be interesting. It would seem pretty bold to blatantly disregard something in writing.

I personally find I have a better time on cruises letting the management run the ship, while I take care of myself, but that's me. To each their own.

I personally find that I serve no useful purpose in complaining if I'm unwilling to do anything about it. Just me.

WE go on a cruise to have a good time, not spend the whole time being the dress police.
