Shorts in the MDR for dinner


Recommended Posts

Personally I would never wear shorts when having dinner in a restaurant - hence I would never wear shorts for dinner in MRD.

Shorts will for me be acceptable in Windjammer.

-  might be because I'm from Denmark🤵.

Ditto  living in Florida we always wear shorts to dinner.  Only time we wear long pants is if it's too cold outside😇

The question wasn’t what you would do.    
 


there’s many posts here saying they have eased the dress attire for dinners.    

im bring 1 pair of dockers with me next week on the HOS just Incase.  
But everything else are shorts. And button up shirts.     
Being a UPS driver. We never wear pants. For Breakfast lunch or dinner  lol.

This sounds good to me.  My husband was a UPS driver but has been retired for 6 years and he loved to wear his shorts too!  Thank you for your comment.

I tried to say - I do not find shorts appropriate for dinner - do not wearing shorts myself for dinner - and I would prefer 'no shorts' in MRD.  However realize that dress attire for dinners has been eased.At my last cruise the dress code for most of the days was 'Laid Back Lounging' which I translate to: jeans, polos, blouses or sundresses are listed as appropriate dress for dinner in the MRD. Shorts are welcome for breakfast and lunch. Agree that shorts might be appropriate for Casual.

Your welcome.   I have less than 5 to go.   But my body might not make it.  May have to retire early and leave California and head to Florida.  That’s the actual plan for retirement.  But Florida might come sooner than later.  Unfortunately.

Again.  That’s your opinion.   Not what’s actually happening on these cruises.  
the dress code has changed a lot.    But thank you for your opinion.

I have my teens wear nice shorts with a polo shirt every night. I live and south Florida and all my clothes are skirts and shorts

Teens never get questioned at dinner as long as they look nice from what I’ve seen.  
cant wait to move to FL so I can get rid of most of my paints lol.

It is discourage in writing (and it's printed on the daily schedule) but whether they will turn you away at the door of the MDR is up to the manager at the door.  We end up at Windjammer because of this.  Can he bring a pair of pants and change for dinner.  Linen pants can be as comfortable as shorts really if temperature is a problem.

Everybody is moving to Florida. Over 1,000 people a day. We have no more room.

This isn’t the roaring 20’s anymore. Times have change.  Attire has changed. 
people can be well dressed and not be in a stuffy suit and tie. 
 

I’d beat most everyone that says you néed to be dressed up is retired.   
 

times have changed. And the cruise lines are adjusting to change.

That's funny - I'm going to retire at the end of this year and as I get older the more I enjoy relaxing and dressing casual.  After 60+ cruises, I'm going on a little 5 night cruise next month with my husband, son, grandson, and great grandson and it will be the first time I won't pack a suit for my husband or anything dressy for me.  It will be a blast!
