Does one have to post a direct link to NCL's website to backup every post one makes?
Q. How do we know where to eat each night?
A. There are no rules as to where you dine or when you dine, so try them all.
Q. Can we still sit at the same table every night?
A. Yes. The Maitre dí will be pleased to arrange that for you once you are on board. Or you can change your mind and sit at a different table in a different restaurant every night of our cruise.
The second FAQ and answer above should answer your question. How else can the Maitre d' arrange for you to sit at the same table without reserving that table for you, at a specific time?
Freestyle Dining means exactly what the first FAQ answers. There are no rules! you can reserve a table or not, you can ask to sit at the same table or not, you can ask to have the same server or not, you can dine early or late, you can dine at a different restaurant every night or not.
My main point is, you decide, not the cruise line! Freedom is the backbone of Feestyle Cruising.
