Default A Royal Correction

Royal Caribbean Backs Off Dynamic Dining by Paul Motter | Wednesday, 15 Jul. 2015
Expansion of a new program where waiters to follow cruisers to different dining rooms has been axed

OASIS CLASS – DINING UPDATE

The revolutionary Dynamic Dining concept was created with the debut of Royal Caribbean Quantum-class ships. Dynamic Dining allowed passengers to select a dining time and table size and they would be assured that as they went to different dining rooms each night that they would have the same tablemates, table size and the same waiters as served them in different restaurants on previous nights.


Paul, This needs to be corrected, as you described (Dynamic Dining) as "Rotational Dining" which is a concept by Disney, not the NCL "Freestyle" concept, which Royal has put onto its Quantum Class vessels.

1. You make different reservations for EVERY meal.
2. You have NO table-mates as you are put by yourself, or sometimes with complete strangers.
3. The menu at each restaurant DOES NOT change, for the full cruise.
4. Your servers DO NOT stay with you, for the full voyage: often you will never have the same twice.
5. If you don't make (miss) your reservation time by 15 min, your reservation is dropped.
6. Showing up without a reservation can/will often lead to you being forced, to the Windjammer Buffet.
7. Often the shows and meal times will interfere with each other and you will miss your shows.

Bottom line: based on MY experience both Royal/NCL's dining program is about as much "freedom of choice" with one's personal scheduled, as Magic Kingdom/Disney World at Christmas/New Years...meaning little to none!!
