Dining
Onboard dining experience
If eating incredible meals is one of your favorite activities, rest assured that you will be more than satisfied. There are plenty of food and dining options available, and most are included in the cost of your cruise*.
You will be assigned a set dining time for dinner but you have the flexibility to dine at a different table each night within your assigned dining time. Guests in 1st seating will have dinner at 5:30 pm and guests in 2nd seating dinner will have dinner at 8 pm. If you do not have a medical reason to dine early, our recommendation is to select 2nd seating where you can attend your evening show and then enjoy a relaxed dinner. Guests in 1st seating sometimes hurry their dinner to line up for the show because seating in the show lounge is limited.
