      Eah to their own. We enjoy formal dining when on our cruise and only use the self service restaurant for snacks. Sitting down and enjoying a leisurely meal (and often in good company) is something we never get to do at home.

        Why stop there - do away with knives and forks, perhaps.

          Cos we like it!

          We are casually dressed 50 weeks of the year.......... Great to get the jewellery and glad rags out.

            I don't even know why I am bothering to answer this but...I like formal dinners and love getting changed into something nice so therefore I am a snob? ...Carol

              All part and parcel of the cruise experience for me, it is nice to dress up when you dont get to do it in your day to day life at home.
              Paver I wonder why you cruise you seem to have a lot of objections to the cruising agenda.

                If you don't like it then don't do it - there are plenty of cruise lines that cater for informal. You have a huge choice.
                Enjoy.

                    Formal dining is part of the cruising ethos, always has been, and long may it continue.

                      You don’t have to look too hard to find a cruise line that doesn't do "Formal Nights" Also on many you can eat in the cafeteria on the Formal Evenings.

                      You could also put it the other way round and ask why shouldn't we have Formal nights when they are obviously liked by so many customers? And why should that type of evening be curtailed to suit the odd few who see no point to it?

                      The world is full of holidays that don't require you to dress formally; why try covert a small section to suit your will? ....Neil

                            We, like most of the posters here enjoy dressing up and going formal on the occasions dictated to by the cruise lines we choose.Its part of cruising and I believe unique in the travel industry.Long may it continue.But, there are available arears where one could eat informally if one chooses but,heck we go casual at home nice to have a change.
