Let's hope where Celebrity leads other will follow. I hope they train their staff to enforce the codes. Perhaps, ladies, if we compliment the men on their evening attire (OK pander to their vanity!) they may be more inclined to dress 'up'. Is there a tactful way to hint that not all men look like Daniel Craig in a pair of swimming trunks?

"Enforced" being the key word here. This is the problem with a lot of other cruise lines. They just dont have anyone standing at the entrance to the restaurants and preventing entry if you are not in the correct attire. Lets hope it works and I agree with Cooke - others should follow.

Great news - lets hope they do enforce it. No jeans in the main dining room at any time is pretty radical too.

Result - now hopefully more people will follow suit and start really laying down laws on cruise ships. In hotels and apartments holiday makers are regularly evicted from their accommodation for not abiding by the house rules. Flights are regularly diverted for anti social behaviour. Why should cruise ships be any different - first the dress code, then the "pig pools", next the parents of out of control children and then maybe they will get round to the oldies with their zimmer frames when they want to use them but those same frames are nowhere in evidence when it comes to feeding time at the zoo or getting into the evening entertainment.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
