Cruise Dining

Cruise Dining aboard ships is a wonderful experiences. The variety and quality of food is simply amazing.

There are dress policies, which vary depending on the cruise line and ship.

Typically, you have one or two nights assigned for formal (evening) attire. Dining on other nights is generally casual.

Of course, you do not need to eat in the dining area (there are other places).

{I recommend that you have that cruise dining experience at least once.}

In addition, before or after formal dining, while looking and felling your best, you take pictures (gr-r-e-a-t pictures of course).

You can also attend a great Las Vegas style show, either before or after your dining experience.

Normally, cruise lines assign seating per your request, but request are subject to availability and not guaranteed. Generally, you will have no problem getting what you want. However, you can waitlist if your preference is not available when requested.

You may also request seating with traveling
companions by providing all the reservation
numbers of those participating.

Usually, cruise lines divide meal times into main and late seating. In recent years cruise lines have begun to offer more flexibility. Check the itinerary of the ship for policy and specific times.

If you like sightseeing or to go on shore tours, consider late seating in order to have plenty of time to return to the ship, shower and dress, without having to rush.

If you are an early riser, perhaps early seating is better for you.

Additional information to know is that cruise lines provide for special diets, as well as special dining options.

Note that special dining options may involve an additional expense.

Finally, if possible, enjoy at least one midnight buffet.

And,

Since there are no additional charges, pamper yourself and enjoy the 24-hour room service.
