This was our first time on P&O and after reading reviews and talking to other people we were really worried about the dress code, mainly for the younger lads travelling with us. There is a no trainer, dark jeans only and collars on shirt or polo rule..... this did not apply and we saw all sorts of attire being worn including trainers. I could’ve avoided many arguments with my 17 yr old son re dress code and who refused to wear a suit before we sailed and saved a fortune on shoes and clothes he won’t wear again. Many young men these days wear expensive designer clothes that may not always fit a cruise ‘dress code’ but are still expensive and smart looking so P&O need to lift their rules, especially if they aren’t going to enforce it once onboard. Although I wore a dress most nights, I also wore mid blue coloured smart cropped jeans with a kimono jacket one evening and no one blinked an eye because they weren’t dark. Who cares what people wear to dinner..... it certainly doesn’t ruin our dining experience.
