Default "Proper Attire" Female Teen and Older Child

We have 2 girls one 14.5 and one 11. Please give me some idea of what clothes are appropriate in Dining Room. Can my 14.5 year old wear her long homecoming dress or is that too dressy for formal night. Can she wear a jean skirt, very dark not faded black jeans along with her regular black, navy and tan pants.

My younger daughter has capris and long pants for non-formal dinners. How formal does she need to get for formal nights. She is past that frilly dress stage.

Thanks for all your help!

Yes to your first two questions, I've seen lots of teens in prom type dresses. The ship seems easier going with the younger ones. I suspect they understand how hard it is to get a 10 year old to dress up.
Bon Voyage!

My daughter is 14 and so not a girl. She doesn't wear dresses at all. On the non-formal nights, we all wore pants or jeans and a decent top. On the formal nights, she wore black dress pants and a nice top. She wasn't as dressed as some people, but she was more dressed than others.

Happy Cruising!
