The room was quite large. I think it accommodates 100+ people. Theyt may put your group in the back, which is where we were.It was only the two of us, but there was a group of 12 people seated in the same area. It is a great area. Don't worry as they always advertise on RCTV that they will accomodate all party sizes (obviously within the capacity). 35 people will fit well in the room. Just book it once you get on the ship!! The service is fabulous and the food is absolutely delicious! FYI - if you make a reservation and have to cancel within 24 hours, there is a penalty per person (I think it is $10).
