    Oct 13,2012 we are going on our first WDW Western Caribbean cruise on THE FANTASY!! What is the attire for dining on the boat. I also heard that there is a dining night where they encourage the kids to dress in Disney attire, Is this true?

    Hi, Sheryl!

    Well...aren't you lucky ducks for sailing on the Disney Fantasy next year!?!

    Dining dress requirements vary by venue or theme night on your cruise, but most are "cruise casual"— which means no shorts, swimwear or tank tops in the main dining restaurants. Here's a breakdown of dining events for a 7-night cruise for you:

    • First night: cruise casual — no shorts, swimwear or tank tops
    • 3 additional "cruise casual" nights — no shorts, swimwear or tank tops
    • One pirate or tropical night (deck party)
    • One formal and one semi-formal night — formal wear for men: tuxedo or suit; for women: gown or dress; semi-formal wear for men: suit/jacket; for women: dress or pantsuit.

    The dress code at Palo on all cruises is:

    • Men: dress pants and shirt or jacket
    • Women: dress or pantsuit
    The dress code at Remy on all cruises is:

    • Men: Tuxedo or jacket (sports or suit jacket) is required with dress pants for men. Ties are optional.
    • Women: A nice dress, pant suit or skirt/blouse is required.

    At Palo and Remy, jeans/denim, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops or tennis shoes are not permitted.

    For children, they are always encouraged to dress up like their favorite characters for those special photo opportunities. Yet, I'm not aware of a particular event where a costume is required -- unless it's pirate night or particular activities associated with Halloween.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
