When do you sail?

On larger Royal Caribbean ships where it’s recommended that you book your dinner reservations and your shows at home before you sail is usually 90 days before you sail.

Generally, folks who cruise know that doing their homework from the comfort of their home online is clearly the way to go. You can book shows, dinner reservations, tours, all kinds of stuff...if you wait, theres a better than even chance you won't get what you want, and then stand around in a line on board hoping to get seats, or a tour...probably complaining about it all....true, some things need to be paid for when they're booked, but at least you got it...and...hopefully, based on reviews from real folks who have done it, not some nonsense from cruiselines or TA's...

Nothing opens until after final payment day and then everything opens and fills fast
