Default Dining question

My husband and I along with my daughter and her BF are booked (in separate cabins) on Elation for March 8. How do I make sure we get seated at the same dining table? We have separate booking numbers so I don't know if in the Carnival system they are linked or not. There is so much knowledge on Cruisemates I thought someone might know.

Ensure that your travel professional i.e. Travel Agent, PVP, or whomever is aware and that they have linked both reservations so that you will be seated together.

As soon as you get on board, you will either have been given a dining room assignment card during embarkation or it will be in the cabins. Check that you are all assigned to the same table. On the slight chance that you are not, go straight to the maitre d'.
But, usually, they are good about this, since lots of people travel together and want to eat together.

Both the above posters are absolutely correct. Make sure your two reservations are "Linked", (Either of your agents can, and should do this for you), and if there is a problem go directly to the maitre 'd and request that you be seated together. Check your sign-n-sail card, or boarding card, or whatever, to make sure you're assigned the same seating, and the same table!
Have a great cruise,

If you booked it all at the same time, then no worries. If not, then go to the restaurant ASAP if you have different tables.

Assuming you and the daughter and BF booked through the same agent, simply tell the agent to cross reference your bookings. Easy, and should take care of any problem.
