However, some regular cruise guests thought they could do without a strict dress code and preferred things more casual.
One said: “I don’t like getting dressed up. I’ll certainly comply to a dress code, but I’m not a snazzy dresser.
“I don’t seek out venues that require such. Some people very much enjoy having a fancy experience and seeing people around dressed in pool clothes would take away from that.”
Another said: “I got turned away twice since I had shorts and then changed to jeans and went again.
“They didn’t like that my shirt was button up so had to change again. I get not having swimsuit but it shouldn’t be that tight.”
