Seabourn Revise Dress Guidelines

The following information has been provided by Seabourn.

In general, the world is becoming less formal in terms of the attire people are expected to wear in a given situation. At the same time, Seabourn guests expect to encounter a level of elegance which is beyond that they would normally experience at home. In order to balance these two sets of expectations, the following guidelines have been implemented.

Daytime wear
During the day we request that swimwear is not worn in the interior public rooms. Further, brief shorts (such as jogging shorts and work-out apparel) are not considered appropriate attire in dining venues and lounges.  (Bermuda, or longer shorts and jeans are acceptable).

Evening wear
In the evening (after 6pm) there are two different dress codes:

     1.  Elegant Casual
Men: slacks with a collared dress shirt or sweater; Jacket optional
          Ladies: slacks / skirt, blouse, pant suit or dress
          This is the dress standard for all dining venues
          Jeans are welcome in all dining venues during the day
          Jeans are not appropriate in the Restaurant after 6pm
     2.  Formal
          In the Restaurant:
              Men: Tuxedo, suit or slacks and jacket required
              Ladies: evening gown or other formal apparel
          Dress in other dining venues is Elegant Casual
          Jeans are welcome in all dining venues during the day
          Jeans are not appropriate in any public venues after 6pm

The breakdown per cruise for the different dress codes is as follows:
        Up to 13 day cruise – 1 Formal night
        14-20 day cruise – 2 formal nights
        21 or more day cruise – 3 formal nights

Christmas & New Year Cruises will have two formal nights per week or four for the two-week cruise, with Dress Code on December 25 and December 31 Formal.

Formal Evenings in The Restaurant
A sign with the evening dress code will be posted in The Restaurant, the only area where the dress code will be strictly enforced on formal nights. On Formal nights, a selection of jackets will be available to be offered to gentlemen who arrive without one. Alternatively they may dine in their suites, or in the Veranda Café/Colonnade/R2/Patio/Sky Grill when open.
