The very Simple answer here is that Cunard was once a British owned Cruise Line and it was expected by those, that in those days could afford the cruises. It seems now that Carnival, have taken them over, they seem to think that this is what the British Passengers want and are trying to keep up the White Star service of years gone by, which is now none existent. If Carnival want to try and keep this up with Cunard, they will not get a more younger generation onboard their ships, the 20-40 year old's should now be their core market. If not. they will be relying on the upcoming older generation, 60+ to take over as the more elderly will be dying off, naturally. They need to drop the archaic dress code to entice this 27 year old onboard!

Do you not consider that there will always be a "mature" market for 60 pluses? Life expectancy rates are increasing, don't forget. Most 20-30 year olds get older, and, as they do, their tastes change. At 25 I was into flower power, now I wear a dress suit.

On our recent voyage on Queen Victoria there were plenty of under 40s and they seemed to be the ones dressing up to the nines and enjoying it.

Why? It's just their rule. Some like it, some don't. I personally gave up on Cunard because I find their dress code to be too fussy, and much prefer the relaxed code on Celebrity. It's personal choice really.

Because that's what you agreed when you booked under terms and conditions.

I don't think you do have to, but if you don't you may well be refused entry to the dining rooms (but not the buffet? ) and bars.
