ChiliSpouse agrees with you. On the Alaska cruise, we ate at one of the other restaurants onboard on formal night.


I'd rather not carry the tux with us, and I don't enjoy getting dressed up. However, Lovely Wife (LW) really enjoys a formal evening every once in a while, so I get dressed up. I must admit that she looks wonderful on those evenings,and the smile on her face makes my discomfort completely worth the reward.

I enjoy dressing casually, but my time living in Europe taught me that dressing appropriately for the occasion really enhances the experience. Even just a nice shirt and a pair of slacks gets us better service and a friendlier reception from the other patrons. The term used for the Americans that come to the restaurants in jeans and a t-shirt translates approximately as "slobs".
