Sunlover I would appreciate knowing what day/time the repeat passenger party was on your sailing if you know.
Thanks

I'm sorry I don't. This was our first Carnival cruise. It seems to me, it was on a sea day. Our table mates went before supper and we had the 8:00 seating. They said it was very nice! Sorry I can't remember what night it was!!

Thanks anyway.
Sounds like you must have been in the Silver dining room??? Which level upper or lower was your table. How was the wait staff and did you feel much motion there?
Thanks for answering all my questions. I couldn't find your revieew.

Yes, I am disappointed the review has not been posted yet, said it would be in a couple of days, but if not soon, I'll post here.
Yes, we were in the Silver, and a lot of motion.
In fact a lot of motion, and one night real bad, I got sick. I will definitely get a patch for my next cruise. Many were sick the one night.
The staff in the dining room was pretty slow the first night, but from then on it was fine. Very overworked. They had a big round table(10), big square table (14) and 2 with 4 in them. It was a lot for one waiter. Ours were very nice. The rest of the staff on board could not have been nicer. We had Victor for our cabin steward and he was top notch!!!
We were surprised at how much movement the ship had. They said the week before we went was really bad, even the crew were getting sick!
Have a good time, and I will answer any more questions you have! Have you been on the Destiny????

My group is suppose to have the round tables of 10 on the lower level. I didn't know there were tables for more persons. I wanted one for 12 so will have to see once on board. Who were your waiters if you remember?
One perk about being a long time loyal CCL guest (this will be my 15th sailing with them) is that I can request a bunch of stuff and some will happen. I did get a reservation for 36 of us at the supper club the first night. I have always found the first night to be really busy and more disorganized than the rest..
I did sail on the Destiny in 2001.
You can e me at rdonte@cox.net for any info
Thanks

If memory serves me correctly, the party for repeat cruisers was on Thursday @ 5pm for us. We had 5:45 dinner time in the Silver upper level. There were four adults and two children at our dinner table and room for at least two more people but we had the table all to ourselves the entire cruise. As a matter of fact, this early seating proved to wildly unpopular as the dinning room never seemed more than half full and on some nights maybe only about a third full.

It was also Thursday evening that we hit the rough seas and it was most noticeable in the dining room. A lot of vibration and rolling going on back there. I somehow contracted stomach cramps that evening, not nausea or anything related to seasickness. These stomach cramps lasted well into this week. I guess I just ate too much.

Thanks Roscoe for the additional info. Currently I have my groups cocktail party scheduled for Thurs, after Tortola 530-730. I had tried to get CCL to give me the info before the TA set this up but they said the repeater party can be any day/time the ship wants it. Oh well if we miss it no big deal.
We have late seating and have requested 4 tables of 10 and 2 table of 2.
We also have all the aft stern cabins on deck 6 so hope the motion won't be too terrible back there. I did have one of those cabins for the Europe sailing and it was wonderful so hope for the best in the Caribbean.
