On one voyage, we had three (yes 3) table changes in the MDR.
- The first was because no one else at the table spoke English so there were always at least two conversations going on at the table on any given night so it was rather loud and uncomfortable.
- The second was because other people at the table were keeping Kosher. I give them props for their devotion but as a non-kosherians, the trail of trash it required was mind-boggling. Every food item came specially wrapped, paper plates, plastic utensils, etc. The table ended up full of used aluminum foil and paper containers. There was barely enough room for us to have a place for our dinner rolls.
- The third was because of a couple who came to dinner stone drunk and disruptive two nights in a row.
We left the dining room early on each of those evenings and took it as our cue to make reservations in the smaller venues for the remainder of our voyage. We laugh about it now but for all of that to happen on one cruise was the most improbable comedy of errors we ever had to live through.
