Make your specialty restaurant reservations as soon as you board and get into your stateroom.

Ask to attend the Wine Makers Table at your first dinner. Also, you can order bottled water (we had 24) and a canned soda package through room service and keep them in your cabin refrigerator.

I thought the buffet eating arrangement (which we used for breakfast and lunch) was much better organized than we experienced on other ships. They had separate "alleys" for different eating. One lane for pastry, one lane for sandwiches, and one for carving and hot foods. Created less confusion.

On this cruise we ate dinner at Sabatini's (5). Crown Grill (1), Seafood Terrace (2), Crab Shack (2), MDR (2). Alfredo's (3). We like this arrangement, if the MDR or another venue doesn't pan out, one has a lot more to choose from.

Explanation of how to turn on the lights and find the hairdryer would be nice.

Make your specialty dining reservations upon boarding the ship and I would suggest Anytime dining so you don't miss any evening shows and you can call 8am in the morning and reserve a table as well. We never waited and it was a lot of fun sharing a table so be sure to do that.

Coffee cards are now usable in the gelatoria. A sundae or 3 scoops of gelato are one punch.


Feb 26, 2016

Reservations for dining, even anytime dining should be made at the beginning of the week. Especially if you like to eat before 6:30.

If you have never cruised and have pre-purchased a drink package online, be sure there is a sticker on your stateroom card.

Watch for good sales near the end of the trip. Feel free to ask any staff member any questions at any time.

I would recommend traditional dining. Heard from some that they had to wait awhile to be seated for "anytime" dining. Early reservations once on board for specialty dining rooms are a must. Same goes for reservations for popular excursions.

The dining is exceptionally good both in the dining rooms, the specialty restaurants , and the buffet . As well as the hamburger stand, pizza stand, and the ice cream/popcorn stand. You will definetly enjoy every meal (and snacks) and the pastry section is a real treat.

If you are a person who relishes a good meal in the dining room, forget the Regal Princess, you might as well eat in the buffet. The specialty restaurants are thoroughly forgettable as well. Do not waste your money.

Ship is very big, so elevators could take a while (too full). But, no problems finding deck chairs for the movies and no waiting for food/drinks.

Anytime dining is the best option / Franco the manager of Crown Grille is very friendly and professional in his attention to the diners / JayR and Milos were great waiters in the Symphony dining room

Pipe all public address info into the staterooms. You might be providing important information that we would miss. Consider providing doughnuts. What a simple, inexpensive pleasure. As you do bait and switch so often, one must find the specialty shop and pay extra for even a simple doughnut.

Even if you pick "anytime dining" and you want just a table for two you should make a reservation each morning for dinner that evening.

Get to the theater early to get a good seat.
