The Carnival’s website FAQ mentions that guests should ensure their clothing and accessories are respectful to fellow guests. It implies that nothing worn during the cruise should contain any message that may be considered as offensive or have nudity, profanity, sexual suggestions. Additionally the clothing should not promote negative ethnic or racial, commentary or hatred or violence in any form.
The spokesperson Vance Gulliksen said that the change came after some reports in the other travel sectors of customers wore clothes with threatening messages.
He said that they already had some basic clothing guidelines in place and their guests respect them and understand the family-focused business.
A new discussion started on how they were prepared to handle the situation and the need for clarification to both guests and crew.
Some were surprised by the December change.
Cruise lines too have a wide range of policies put in place to create a welcoming and inclusive enviornment onboard their fleet of ships which is similar to other forms of travel on land and air.
The policies cover everything from dress code to alcohol consumption and cruise lines have the authority to enforce the policies whenever they deem necessary.
A number of cruisers come out in favour of this policy change and hope to see the line able to enact the rule onboard after the announcement.
The cruise line’s other attire guidelines for the dining room and other public spaces will remain the same.
