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".

He has no objection to slacks, nice shirt and blazer and never wore t-shirt and jeans to dinner on the first cruise. He disposed of 15 suits when he retired from executive-in-Big-Corporation life, and wished them good riddance. He might prefer to dress like an American slob, but that doesn't happen on my watch when we're traveling. I just try real hard not to put him in tie-required situations despite enjoying a dress-up occasion myself.
