The cruises I have been on all have a few formal nights where a coat and tie are expected of men. Some go on cruises for special occasions like anniversary or honeymoon. The cruise line usually does a big business having professional photographers take pictures for sale to passengers. Getting photos made as part of the dress-up night is a common practice for some, but it is optional.

Most cruise lines require shirts and shoes in the formal dining rooms and exclude shorts and jeans. But all serve the same menu buffet style on the top deck where shorts and jeans are allowed. Most will do room service. You do not have to participate in formal night if you wish to avoid it.
