I told my TA to change the dinner seating to the first one and she said she did but then the tx we received still reflect the second seating. Should we worry about it - or double check once we get on the ship?
Ela: As soon as you board the ship check in your cabin to see what seating you have been assigned. It will most likely be on a card on the desk. If you want it changed, then find where the maitre d' is set up (usually the lounge) for seating changes and try to get it changed. We have never had a problem changing when necessary. If things are really tight on your desired seating a discreet tip to the maitre d' may help, but we have never had to do that.
Happy sailing (and eating).
Ela...maybe the change did'nt get to Celebrity before your tx were made. You could call your TA now and see if the change went thru or take the good advice given by artichoke and david. Good Luck and happy cruising.
Ela... I cruise a lot... maybe 10/12 times a year, for business... over many years. I cannot recall ever embarking on a ship when, at the earlies possible moment, I did not visit the Maitre d's location to check on my seating... not just for time, but also for location, table size, etc. It will be time well spent!
Ernie's advice is excellent. When we board I always cruise the dining room to see where the assigned table is. This serves two purposes. One, I can get it changed if I don't like it; Two, we can find the table!
Unless the cruise is jam-packed, there shouldn't be a problem with a change if it hasn't already been reflected in the ship's documents.
The rear of the dining room is not a terrific place to be if vibration bothers you. It only lasts for a few minutes when the ship is leaving port, but in those few minutes, hang on to your glass and your silverware!
