Hi, We were given "open seating" and the agent said it was because there was nothing else left.
If it is so popular that people book early just to get the "fixed" seating why are they changing it? Maybe they should keeep the fixed seatings and have a dining room ( i.e. the $$$ one )just for open seating. How many use the $$$ dining room on any given night? How would they know that this is what peole want? Just because there are a lot of people using the open seating dining room does not mean that all of them wanted this option, but maybe they are there just because this is the only place to eat other than the lido buffet. Maybe a survey should be given to the guests to get the true feeling on this change they are undertaking.
