  1. Basically it just comes down to what you are comfortable wearing. The larger cruise ships are more relaxed now. People pay to go on vacation so they should be allowed to wear the clothing they choose. If you want everyone to dress up, go on One of the smaller and more luxurious vessels.
  2. Hi everyone! Just off the Eurodam and I thought I’d put in a couple of ideas. I took a pair of palazzo pants with 2 dressy tops and the clothes traveled well and were SO comfy. I got lots of compliments ( for those who care about that) and my husband took a pair of black trousers and simply wore a dressy shirt. Just as clothing has become more casual over the years in church, in airline travel and in the workplace, so has travel attire on cruise ships. I think as long as you wear respectful attire to the dining and specialty areas you should be comfortable and well received by staff.
  3. I agree completely with terrydtx and Judyrem. I retired from the airline business and wore a uniform for 20 years and dress clothes for the following 7. The last thing I want to do on vacation is dress up! I have ( IMO) very nice casual clothes and on my next cruise that’s all I’m bringing with me. I can fit everything in my carryon that way. I’ll throw in a few long necklaces and I’ll be good to go! I’d rather get room service on Gala nights.
  4. Just got home from AK on Eurodam. Just nice simple attire was fine. There was a little of everything style wise. Some nights we dressed up more like for the specialty restaurants. I was surprised to see some really scrubby looking clothes in those venues though even though there is a dress code. On Gala nights we saw everything from jeans to tuxedos and everything was fine. Fun ship!
  5. I wouldn’t book a guarantee room. Period. I booked my cruise ( 5/4/19) directly through HAL and the agent assigned us a fantastic room for the same price a guarantee room was through Travelzoo. When you book a guarantee room my understanding is you tell them what the lowest category is that you will take. So if you don’t get an upgrade that should be expected.
  6. Anyone been on the Eurodam to Alaska from Seattle in early May?
