Default If one wanted...

If one wanted to, how would one go about sitting with the captain at his round table of brilliance and wonderfulness ?!?!

Is it typically the passengers with tons and tons of cruises... or do you actually have to KNOW the Captain?

Dude> You usually have to be invited to Dine with the Master. I have heard those with a lot of sailings are the first invited, but that is not always the case.

A pair of single ladies from our table with no prior cruising experience were invited to the Master's table on my last cruise. I suppose they were there to offset a preponderance of males.... other bridge staff were also at the table that night, and I doubt their wives were with them.

there were several excellent responses on a past thread about this topic..if I recall the responses included staying in the penthouse suite, VIP guest with many cruises with the line, very special anniversaries, the guest hostess invites you to provide balance to the table, etc

The one and only time I ever had the pleasure was in Greece..my then GF and I happen to see the Captain downtown shopping and we stopped and chatted with him to compliment him on the cruise.. I think he was enamored with my GF and the next evening we received an invitation to dine with him..I don't think the captain was too happy to see my come along but he was very gracious, so i didn't have any problems when he danced with her later in the disco

Default Dinner With the Captain

We were seated at the Captain's table on one cruise. I think it was a "pity" thing, since all our other tablemates were eating in the specialty restaurant that night. and we were alone at a table for 8.

On a recent cruise, we played trivia twice a day. The Captain's wife and her parents also played every day. Our team beat them at every event. We were pretty sure we wouldn't get an invitation to his table, and we were right!
