I just read a review on this board that sounded like if you are assigned early seating for dinner (6:15p), you will miss the captains welcome aboard party, the past guest party, and possibly the farewell party ? On other cruises the Captains party was set so both seatings could attend - early seating party was 45 minutes prior to dinner, late seating 45 minutes prior to their seating.. Anyone have any more info on this ?
That's been true on all of our cruises until this one. On this one, only one Captain's Receptions and one Past Guest party. Not sure why, but it's true. Several of our friends have called Carnival to complain and have been promised some compensation. Hopefully they'll get this fixed, but it was true on the 10/24/04 sailing!
On our last two cruises we had the early seating for dinner and if I remember correctly those past quest and captains parties are scheduled for before the 1st dinner seating. You shouldnt miss any of those.
