Royal Caribbean tries their best to accommodate the dining arrangement for all their guest. However, there is a protocol. Requests are taken and giving to the appropriate staff on the ship. You can request a seating time and the table size through your travel agent, or when you book a cruise on line. You're not guaranteeded to get just what you want, that's why they make changes the first couple of days on the cruise. I don't put much thought into worry over dining provisions--I haven't been disappointed yet.
I just wanted to follow up and let everyone know that our dining room seating request was granted.
The email address that I sent the request to (see post above) worked!
We had a table for 6 (our family only) next to the window. It was a wonderful table and a great location.
I also double checked our table location when getting on board the first day.
We however had non-attentive waiters who lacked greatly in customer service. Past cruises we had overly friendly service, which we loved, and waiters who took the time to learn our names and constantly watched to see if we needed drinks filled or anything else. Unfortunately this was not the case at all with this trip. We were extremely disappointed, but realize it was probably just the luck of the draw with the wait staff that we received. (We watched other waiters and saw great comraderie and service. We also had wonderful service when we visited during breakfast, where we sat at different locations in other dining rooms)
If you experience that kind of service you should let the Head Waiter know about it so he can make sure you get the attention you deserve. That's what the Head Waiter is there for, to make sure everything is to the passengers sanctification.
We had met the head waiter and actually contemplated speaking with him about it, however, decided that we liked our table location and weren't sure that they could even find us another table somewhere.
We didn't want our waiters to be reprimanded for lack of service and then have them angry while serving us the rest of the week.
