On a 2 week fly cruise to the Caribbean there will usually be 4 formal nights (Black tie or lounge suit - over 90% at least will be in black tie) and then 10 smart casual nights. Even on smart casual nights you cannot wear shorts in any of the bars. Usually the dress code is expected to be adhered to in all bars. Smart casual means long trousers, shirt, can be short sleeved and now smart jeans are allowed but you will not see many of those. Hope this helps. Have a great time.

No. No sports bar and as Freemantle says over 90% of people dress for dinner. Dont feel out of place try and adhere to the dress code. If you cannot join the rest who make the effort, there is always room service! What ever you do have a great time. But if you are always in suits try open necked shirts, casual trousers and a jacket, on semi formal nights, short sleeve shirts and trousers on casual nights. But on formal nights try and look the part. i.e. a suit or D.J Its well worth the effort.

There's no casual nightspot as such on Oceana. If you don't fancy dressing up, you can get away with having dinner at the Plaza Buffet (which has a bar...albeit a very quiet one) - although shorts in the evening is probably pushing it. I'm not a huge fan of dressing up (I usually wear a suit for work), but that said its acutally quite fun. And yes, pretty much everyone else does it.
