Even as smoking
rules get tighter
on Disney cruise ships, the dress code is getting
A Disney Cruise Line spokesperson tells USA TODAY the company has begun
allowing shorts in the main dining rooms of its four ships - something that has
been banned since the line's start-up in 1998.
Disney's website still lists a prohibition
on shorts in dining rooms but that is no longer correct and soon will be
changing, the spokeswoman says.
The looser dress code applies to the three main restaurants on each Disney
ship where the majority of passengers dine in the evening.
Shorts will still be forbidden at Palo, the small extra-charge, adults-only
Italian restaurant found on all four Disney ships. Also remaining shorts-free is
Remy, the upscale French restaurant on Disney's two newest ships, the Disney
Fantasy and Disney Dream. View
the two ships' eateries, more in our photo tour.
Dress pants, shirts and jackets are required for men at Remy; jackets are
optional at Palo. Women are expected to wear a cocktail dress, pantsuit or
skirt/blouse at Remy; a dress or pantsuit is required at Palo.
