Default Late dinner/late sail away

Fireboat's question about the drill just prompted a question in my head that I hadn't thought of until now . Our AK cruise sails @ 9pm. We are booked for late dinner. Hmm-what to do--going to dinner the 1st nite so you can meet all your table-mates & then sail away party. What are we going to do?

I would plan on going to dinner that first night, chances are the drill will be before that.

When we sailed on The Constellation out of New York in Septembet 2004 we were supposed to sail @ 4:30. For reasons unexplained, the sailing was delayed and ultimately we didn't sail until around 6:45 or 7:00 pm. We had early dinner seating so we were seated at the table at the time the ship sailed. However, I had every intention of seeing the Statue of Liberty as we left New York harbor.

Here's what I did... I said "nice to meet you all, I see were sailing & I want to see the Statue of Liberty as we leave the harbor, would anyone like to join me." and I left the table. No problems. After all, you are on vacation, and theres no reason why you shouldn't do what you want. There was 12 days to sit and chat with our tablemates over the course of the cruise, but only one chance to experience NY Harbor upon sailaway, why would I miss that for dinner?

Yeah, I would have to agree. It's YOUR vacation, do what you want to, don't worry about anything, that's what vacations are for. 8)

Also, seeing the Statue of Liberty on the way out of that harbor was very nice, many pictures.
