Default PC Dining & Show Times?

1st cruise...on Sapphire....is coming up! We have chosen PC Dining. How much time should we allow before a show we may want to catch? Thanks, Kay

Two hours just to play it safe and get to the show
early enough to get a seat.

There are normally two shows, identical. After your first dining room meal you will be able to figure your time. See the "Princess Patter" news paper which will be delivered daily to your mail box outside your door (along with a bunch of other stuff) while you are asleep. You can try, but you cannot go day and night! we try to pace ourselves but theres just toooo much to do. Have a great time. Jim

Thanks Jim & John!

If there's a show we want to see, we'll plan to eat 2 hours earlier. Is there a chance we wouldn't get a seat? Are the theatre shows that crowded? No matter... It looks like there's music, dancing etc in lots of other places to keep us occupied.......not to mention hot tubs!!??!!

mkj, if you can't get a seat at the first showing of a show that you want to see, you can always go to the later show, and they do repeat the shows during the week.

Not being a fan of PC dining, I find that it causes the first show of the evening to be oversubscribed. All the early PC diners and first seating people try to get in and the ship can not accomodate everyone - just as they can not accomodate every PC diner that wants to eat at 6 PM. The result is closed doors with signs to catch the later performance.

As a first seating person, that usually has an early morning shore excursion planned, I won't stay up for the second performance.

I prefer the cruise lines that have only traditional seating as they alternate their shows to accomodate everyone much better than when PC dining is added to the mix. JMNSHO.
