I am traveling in 2 weeks.I really would like a table in the main dinning room near the windows so we have a view.When I called Royal Carribean they said there is no way to request this.Is this true and do you have any ideas what I could do before we cruise?
They have their hands full even honoring table size requests...I think your best bet would be to wait until you are on the ship! AND...make sure that this is something you really want...we thought we did....but the water moving outside the window made my daughter really sick! We were glad to move away from the windows!
Many times they have to close the curtains because of the sun streaming in. There is nothing you can do before the cruise and probably very little you can do after except to make your request to the Maitre'D and hope he has someone who wants to move from a window. If he does manage to fulfill your request make sure you tip him for his extra efforts.
You didn't say how may people are in your party, but if it's just you and your partner, and you want a cozy table for 2, forget it! I've never seen a small table by a window on any cruise ship. The window view tables I've seen normally seat eight, and tables for 2 and 4 are more in the middle of the dining room. And the other posters are right, if you have early seating, the shades are usually drawn to block out the sun, and if you have late seating, all you're going to see is your face staring back at you.
I agree with the other poster. We were "near" a window once and it drove me crazy. Horizon going up and down. I had to change seats. In fact, they usually close the windows during early seating because of the sun. Again, others are right, it's just dark and black during late seating...............Don't lose sleep over this, you will have fun and a great dinner no matter where you sit....In fact, it is more fun to sit in the interior of the room because of all the "stuff" that goes on during dinner!.....well, unless you get the table I got on Rhapsody of the Seas right by the kitchen door and I won't even go into that!!!!!!!! Have fun
I always ask to sit near the window but it is because I am severely hearing impaired and in the middle of the room the noise is so loud that I can't hear any of the conversation around the table. I always let the company know why it is important for me to sit by the window and have never been refused.
