We cruise a LOT...closing in on #60 as we are in LOVE with the ocean and need our "sea days". I can tell you cruising has changed a LOT over the years, and these days, slacks, a collared shirt for men and nice slacks and top for women is really all that is required for ANY dining venue other than HIGH $$$$$$$ cruising. If the ratio of staff to clients is not one of those 1:5 BIG cost cruise ships, if you bring something you would wear to a nice on land dinner venue, you will be just fine on a cruise ship. For those not wanting to dress up to even that point, all ships have lots of different options for you to eat without changing out of your shorts and tee-shirts and flip flops. Cruising is a wonderful way to travel, very cost effective (if you stay balanced with the bar tab and the casino spending) and relaxing way to travel. You can do as much as you would like, or as little as you like. We will be doing our 7 day "lifestyle" stay at TV coming back from a month long cruise in Feb. Starting out in San Diego, 15 day cruising to Hawaiian islands, and then another 15 days from San Diego (same ship) thru the Panama Canal repositioning to Miami. If you enjoy TV, you are the type that would probably enjoy cruising if you have not tried it. I honestly think TV is the closest to offering the "cruise lifestyle", just you go to your home every day vs back to your cabin when out to sea. Only offering this up for consideration of those that have not "dipped their toes in the water to see how they might like it yet". And yes, back in the day, we did the ENTIRE formal thing...even rented Tux's for hubby onboard, but they don't even OFFER that service anymore it is such old news (and trust me, if there WAS$$ to be made from it, they would not have dropped it as an option). As helpful as I find this forum to be as we have tried to investigate TV, I offer this up to the discussion trying to help those considering cruising.
