Never cruised with princess before RCl we cruise with but with them everybody wears what they want. Some people dress up at night some people still go around in their shorts and trainers theirs no dress code unless you go into the main dining room where it has specific nights - formal/smart casual/casual. Hope this helps you. Lorraine .

To true on formal nights 99% of men are dressed black tie and the ladies have the wow factor so put your jeans and trainers on and you will feel embarrassed even on informal nights.

If you want eat in the main dining room, you comply with the dress code of the day. If you want to eat 'Dinner off a Tray' style then you won't be alone in jeans & trainers.

Go on ... push the boat out and wear "smart trousers" otherwise you'll look like the blokes pushing the boat out and wearing jeans and trainers. If you are really feeling rash wear a shirt too. ... Neil.

No jeans or trainers in restaurants. If you want to wear jeans and trainers [Americanified] then go to the buffet on an evening.

The season of the mini cruise.

By Warwick Van Reenen

Warwick Van Reenen's blog

My first cruise was a mini cruise on the new Independence of the Seas in 2009. Well, she was new then! It was during a May bank holiday weekend and a 4 night to Cork and back.It was bank holiday weekend and the ship was filled to capacity. The volume of luggage being manhandled on board the vast family-friendly superliner at Southampton might have suggested we were all embarking on a world circumnavigation rather than a short sailing and this is another bonus of a cruise out of Southampton is...
