There’s some interesting news out of Disney Cruise Line this week that everyone should be aware of if they’re planning a cruise.

First, DCL has reportedly relaxed their dress code for the regular dining rooms at dinner.  Previously, jeans and shorts were not allowed, but if you’ve cruised in the last few years you’ve probably noticed that not everyone honors that request.  The newly relaxed “Cruise Casual” dress code still asks that swimwear and tank tops not be worn, but they seem to be a little more accepting of shorts.  The more formal adult-only restaurants, Palo and Remy, still adhere to a stricter dress code.

Second, Disney has announced a change in their smoking policy, which as of November 15, 2013 prohibits guests from smoking on their private verandas.  This will be a welcome change for many guests, since verandas are included in the square footage of the stateroom.  Those will allergies or who simply don’t care for smoke are often not able to make full use of their verandas due to smoke drifting in from other balconies.  Each ship will continue to offer open-air public spaces designated as smoking areas.  For detailed information on these areas, visit the cruise planning center here:
