    Not good if you are booked on Allure out of Galveston (I am for March 2022)

    I highly suggest having your teen attend the meet and greet on the first night of the cruise (usually 8 pm)
    My 13 year old spent all of his time with other teens on our recent cruise.  We basically didn't see him on sea days except at dinner.  He made a lot of friends and even ran into some of them on our shore excursions.  
    We paid for the internet package and used WhatsApp to text with him

    The trend on land has been towards more casual dress in all aspects of life.  Even in the business world, more and more companies are going business casual vs suits.  Younger people are redefining what "dressed up" means for a date or night out.  RC is a business and wants (needs) to attract young people.
    I have mixed feelings as I like the "dress up" part of cruise dining, at least on some nights.  I don't really feel that what anyone else wears affects me, although I think a minimum standard should apply to avoid "people of Walmart" on RC.
    I'd like to see them eliminate formal night and go to a dressy night and set a minimum standard for the main dining room - no shorts, collared shirt etc.  If people want to dress up more, that's OK too.  I'd also like to see them have some casual nights where shorts are OK.

    You should at least tip the amount you will be auto billed or pre pay.  Anything else would be optional.  
    The differences in tipping culture are rooted in how service staff are paid in the US vs Europe.  The cruise staff are not paid well and rely on tips to make their living so it is only right to follow the tipping culture on a cruise - especially since it is added to your bill anyway.
