Disney Cruise Line has a dress code that includes formal, semi-formal, "dress-up," and casual nights, with "dress-up" nights offered on three- and four-night cruises and formal and semiformal on longer voyages. Formal attire requires tuxedos or suits for men and gowns or dresses for women. Semiformal entails suits or jackets for men and dresses or pantsuits for women.
On "dress-up" nights, men may wear dress shirts (jackets optional) while women are encouraged to wear dresses or pantsuits. Many cruises also feature theme nights, such as pirate or tropical, where guests can dress up according to the theme. The dress code applies to the main dining rooms during dinner.
For the Palo specialty restaurant, dress shirts or jackets for men and dresses or pantsuits for women are appropriate, regardless of the night. Remy, the adults-only specialty restaurant on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, requires pants and jackets for men (ties optional), and cocktail dresses, pantsuits or skirts with blouses for women.
The number of formal nights varies by cruise length. Three- and four-night cruises include one "dress-up" night, while a seven-night cruise features one formal and one semi-formal night. Guests are also permitted to dress casually each night, with Disney's "cruise casual" dress code permitting all casual wear in all family dining venues, except for tank tops and swimwear. Jeans are allowed, but swimwear and tank tops are prohibited in the dining room.
