I was on the QE2's farewell cruise and men wore jeans during the day.

Jeans during daytime are acceptable on any cruise ship. In fact any attire during the day is ok except swimwear in the dining areas .....Wilba.

Good morning G of Bournemouth. You will find many passengers onboard Cunard's ships wearing Jeans during the day. They are accepted for just that, and certainly our American cousins choose this attire. Have a good cruise and chill out. Richard.

Rules are different depending on which company you sail with.The larger companies have a dress code.No shorts or swimwear in dining rooms.Formal and smart casual wear (lounge suit)are expected at dinner but most boats open their buffet in evening for passengers who do not want to eat at set times.Here the dress code is casual.Jeans and casual wear are totally acceptable during the day and on excursions.

Yes, of course you can wear jeans during the day. I, too, like Reeve of Kettering was on the final cruise of the QE2......my 3rd trip on the ship and I often wore jeans during the day. As the weather got progressively warmer, I ditched the jeans for shorts. Haven't been on the Victoria or Mary yet but guess their dress code is similar.

I can understand your concern as the Cunard day dress code can be taken to mean jeans are not acceptable. When we first went on the QM2, I thought casual trousers not jeans were required for daytime but it was soon apparent jeans were acceptable.

I hope not, jeans in what ever form, jeans are jeans and are not to be mixed dress code, informal or formal, which is smart dres or evening wear. That is what we pay for, to dress up and feel special.

Interestingly we adhere to Cunards dress code at all times. My husband took his kilt and it cost him £54 excess baggage and mine £36. We were however sat next to a table of people in the restaurant in the evenings who never once adhered to dress code on QM2 - even on formal nights, there was not a tie in sight at their table and a couple of them were wearing dark jeans. Was a word said to them by staff? ....... 'NO!'. It's was bit gaulling really when others go to the effort of adhering to the code and taking a baggage hit for good measure (just for the record we don't pack to excess either). Anyway to answer your earlier question, jeans are acceptable during the day and in fact are quite practical for lounging around on the ship and whilst in port especially on cooler days. Enjoy your holiday.

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...
