What are the dress codes onboard?

Royal Caribbean dining attire

This question I hear every time!

My clients want to be prepared!

They don’t want to overpack with attire that more likely they don’t use.

Also, they don’t want to underdress in dining room.

Ok, let’s start Royal Caribbean’s Dress Code 101!

When you’re onboard, the right look will vary by venue.

Please note that bare feet are not allowed at any time in any venue and tank tops are not permitted in the Main Dining Room or Specialty Dining venues for dinner.

There are three types of attire on board of Royal Caribbean’s ships:

  • Casual
  • Smart casual
  • Formal


You are on vacation.

Guess what?

Sundresses, jeans, polos and blouses are all the right amount of laid back.

Please keep swimwear to the Pool Deck.

Shorts are welcomed for breakfast and lunch.

Suggested guideline for casual nights is:

  • Sport shirts and slacks for men, sundresses or pants for women

Smart Casual

Think of this as a step up from your typical dinner wear.

Dress to impress with collared shirts, dresses, skirts and blouses, or pantsuits.

Jackets, sports coats and blazers are snazzy and welcomed.

Suggested guideline for smart casual nights is:

  • Jackets and ties for men, dresses or pantsuits for women


Make it a night out in your best black-tie look:  suits and ties, tuxedos, cocktail dresses or evening gowns.

There can be 1-3 formal nights during a sailing and is at the ship’s discretion.

Suggested guideline for formal nights is:

  • Suits and ties or tuxedos for men, cocktail dresses for women
