My wife and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on the Victory in April and we were wondering if it is possible to have a table for two each night ?

Default Re: TABLE FOR TWO ?

We always take a table for two, unless we are traveling with family or friends. Be sure your t/a has requested it with the cruise line. Immediately upon embarkation, go to visit the maitre d's... and check to be sure you've got one. If the sailing (or seating) in not too full, they may give you a table for 4, for 2. If this is the case, be sure the waiter removes the two additional settings before you get un-welcomed company at the table. AND, ask the waiter to be sure to only set for two for the rest of the cruise.

Ernie, I was wondering if you were trying to get a table for 2 would it be better to request early or late seating? We've tried in the past but never got a table for 2, even though it didn't really matter to us and enjoyed the other tablemates.

i don't think it really matters which seating you choose, tables for two are limited no matter what. Get your request in early and confirm your request as soon as you get on board, make sure the cruise line knows it is your anniversay celebration, and you wish a table for two.

That early visit to the Maitre d'... immediately after embarking that will do it. (A $20 tucked in your palm won't hurt either... and will get you some good attention in the dining room as well). Early or late really doesn't matter, as Lisa has said. If they don't have any two's available, as for a four, set for two.
