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.

Is this a ste...
