Am I able to request a private dining table onboard Voyager of the Seas? I am not the best conversationalist in the world, so I would be happier to sit with just my folks. I'm not being rude, honestly, it's just the way I am.
You can try to request a table for your party only, just call your T/A or RC directly. It is not guaranteed however.
My first cruise I felt the same way also, but as time passed, choosing a larger table was the best decision that I made. We had the best tablemates and now I will continue to request larger tables. It is nice to make new friends on board. If you are seated with people whom you can't get along with, ask the Maitre'D to be moved as soon as possible. They will try to accomodate you the best that they can.
We requested a large table and wound up with a table of 4. The "newlyweds" changed to the earlier seating and we were alone for dinner for the remainder of the cruise (4 nights). It was fine dining alone but we missed hearing about other people's excursions and life stories.
