    Hi Moms! We are planning a cruise and I keep reading about people making reservations, I thought there was a restaurant rotation? I realize you have to reserve for Palo, which we most likely won't go to, but are there others I need to reserve as well? Th

    Hi Michele,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  You are correct, your main dining is rotational (you are assigned your nightly dining location, and your servers and table mates rotate with you), and therefore reservations are not required.  The adult-only restaurant, Palo is the only restaurant that you should make reservations for - and there are a few other things that it would be smart to book in advance.  For example:
    • Flounders Reef Nursery - For children up to age three, it is recommended that you make advanced reservations.
    • Vista Spa Services - The spa services can be booked in advance, and I highly recommend it, especially if you would like to take advantage of the spa on the busier at-sea days.
    • Port Adventures - If you have a specific adventure that you want to do, you can book these prior to sailing as well. 

    Keep in mind that your cruise must be paid in full before you will be permitted to make any advance reservations.

    Hope this helps!
