I love cruiseing but do not like to stand in lines. I pay for a suite for the perks, but do any of the lines reserve seats for evening shows. I cant see getting there early for a seat and putting up with BINGO MANIA .
Vacations for me are about comfort and not about being a snob. I just cant see waiting in line like cattle.
If there is a show we don't want to miss... by the time we walk/stroll from the dining room to the theatre the first show is just leaving and its just as easy to walk in and find a seat. Now that we have learned the secret of using the handicapped elevator (Parrot Pop uses a rollator) we are able to get right down to the front and believe it or not there are always people in the first row who are saving seats...in an empty theatre
Arrrrrrr.....Ye will walk the plank for that Matey!!!!

I have also arrived five or ten minutes before the show and there were no two seats (that weren't "saved") together and end up in the back.
I have also gone ahead and just sat down in seats where someone was saving an entire row of seats. They weren't happy but the interesting thing is that on the couple of times I've done this only two or three of the people, who the seats were saved for, ever showed up.
I know Royal Caribbean does reserve seats for suite guests and on NCL you can have your butler escort you to the theater and seat you.

We prefer to sit inthe back on the aisle, so we usually have no problem,as we get there ealry and relax....I would have to say, if a row was saved,and I needed 2 seats..our tushes would sit down. and wait for the ball to drop.....

if you book Royal Caribbean, this is what you can look forward to. I have been in a grand suite; and will be in a owners suite this Dec. These enhancements make life and your cruise a little nicer. If u have anymore questions let me know.
