Q: How and when do I find out about making reservations?
A: Information on reservations for all restaurants will be available through a new planning and reservations tool on May 15, 2014.
Q: I am already booked for the early/late seating in the main dining room. What do I do?
A: Guests already booked on Quantum of the Seas℠ will be able to use the new planning and reservations tool to customize their dining experience, so you can still eat early if you choose, you’ll just have many more choices.
Q: Do I have to make reservations prior to the cruise, or will I be able to make reservations once onboard?
A: In order to satisfy all guests’ preferences, we encourage guests to make restaurant reservations prior to their cruise. However, once onboard, guests will have the ability to make and edit reservations.
Q: Are reservations made on a first come, first serve basis?
A: Yes, once a restaurant is full, an alternative restaurant recommendation will be made. We encourage guests to experience a different restaurant each night.
Q: What is the difference between traditional dining and Dynamic Dining program on Quantum-class Ships?
A: Traditional dining consists of two dining times (Main and Late) in a Main Dining Room. The Dynamic Dining experience encompasses the entire landscape of 18 unique dining venues. The new philosophy is simple: Give our guests more options, more flexibility, more control over their
dining experience. The Main Dining Room has been reimagined as five main restaurants, each with their own distinctive menu and ambiance. There are no set dining times, no strict dress codes, no assigned seats.
Q: Who can dine at Coastal Kitchen?
A: Coastal Kitchen is exclusive to our top suite residents (Grand Suite and above) and their guests.
Q: What if I want the same waiter every night?

Q: What if I want to dine in the same restaurant every night?
A: Dynamic Dining allows guests to make reservations in the same restaurant every night of their cruise if they wish, but we recommend guests to experience a different restaurant each night.

A: Each restaurant has its own distinctive menu and ambiance that remains consistent throughout the sailing. However, guests can certainly experience different selections off the menu each night.
