    On a 7 day eastern cruise, which day is usually the character breakfast. I don't want to book the bruch for the same day (did that on the western cruise)

    Well, I certainly want to help steer you in the right direction so that you don't miss the Palo brunch on your Eastern cruise. It's a truly delectable experience!

    On my most recent cruise (early February), my character breakfast assignment was on Sunday morning after dining at Animator's Palate the first night. DCL assigns guests a day and time to attend the character breakfast. Your assigned day and time will be on your dining room tickets which will be in your stateroom upon arrival. The wonderful Servers will also remind you the night prior to your meal as they will be taking care of you at your character meal too!

    Your character breakfast assignment correlates to your dining rotation. If you have Main seating for dinner, you'll be assigned the earlier character breakfast.

    I would suggest that if your Palo brunch reservation conflicts with your character breakfast that you consider inquiring with Guest Services and most importantly with your Servers regarding an alternate day and time. I have heard of families asking their Servers for alternate arrangements and they were able to help them! Not all passengers attend the character meal which leaves some empty seats at each meal.

    Some families take the kids to the character meal, then dine at the later brunch seating at Palo. The character meal takes about 45 minutes. Even with the 10:30 a.m. seating at Palo, your family should be able to enjoy the character meal in Parrot Cay (parents save your appetites and just enjoy a beverage) then proceed to Palo.

    Have a magical voyage!
