We will be on the Vision of the Seas for the week of Jan 29.

I'm wondering about arrangements for seating at dinner. We are scheduled for the second seating (wait listed for the first seating). Is there anything we can or should do to make sure we get a good table and/or our preferred seating at dinner?

Also, we are driving to LA the day before the cruise so we can get to the ship any time. What time would be best to arrive for boarding?

Thanks!

I'm finding that Royal Caribbean is letting people start to board in Florida ports around 11:30am, and I wonder if it's the same in L.A. Boarding early really gives you another "day at sea," as it were.

As soon as you get on board and drop off your things in your room, go see the Maitre d', who is probably sitting at a table outside the dining room (ask at the Purser's Desk where he is) and see if there is any room for you in main seating. Your table assignment is made in advance and will be on your SeaPass card that you get when you check in, but if you see the Maitre d' personally, he may be able to switch you.

For two people its better to make a change. But we have tried it for four persons and it was not possible. First seating was full, second available.
We also met the Maitre dŽin the Dining Room, but even he was not able to arrange something.
But we got seats at a table for 10 person, got three wonderful american tablemates and the other three never came to have dinner with us.

So, just try it.
