Default Can you request a private table for your family or group?

We cruised on the Glory in Jan., just the wife,my daughter, and myself, somehow we ended up with a table to ourselves at a table for six.

well out of the 7 cruises i have been on only twice was my family of 4 seated with other people..except on the conquest in 2004 there were 6 of us then at a table for 8. then next cruise on the conquest in 2005 it was the 4 of us again at a table for 8 and we loved our table mates. my little sister had a crush on a little boy that sat with us. it was sooo cute. but most of the time our travel agent puts in a request for us to have a personal table.

You can request any table size you like. But keep in mind that is a request, but they'll do their best to honor it.

At the time of booking you should let your travel agent know your preference.

I book directly with Carnival and asked about requesting a table size and was told they no longer do that.

I usually give the maitre'd a big, huge smile and they always honor my request. I kid you not.

Sounds like you ended up with a private table.
