Are you curious as to luxury cruise line Seabourn’s dress code? Or their ‘policy?’

As with all luxury lines these days, and that includes Crystal Cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Silversea you can wear what you want. What I’m always hearing on board, and there is no good reply, is that I paid X amount of dollars for this cruise and I’ll wear what I want.

IMG_9085That said, nobody sailing on any of these lines is going to wear shorts and flip flops to dinner in the main or elegant speciality restaurants. But there will be a place where you can go wearing that — your suite, and at least they have 24/7 room service.

Here is Seabourn’s official word on the subject.  The word policy appears to be intentionally absent.
