    Hi! Two more questions! I'll ask separately. 1. If our request isn't honored about having our own table in the dining rooms (we are a party of 2) and we don't eat there or even meet them, do we still have to tip the servers?

    Welcome back, Hazel!

    I believe you only have a few more weeks until you set sail with Disney Cruise Line! You must be checking off those last minute items and getting the suitcases ready to be packed! Isn't it exciting! I love watching the countdown on my Disney Cruise Line Navigator App on my phone as it shows me how many days, hours, and minutes left until cruise day!

    If you've requested a private table, though they cannot guarantee that type of request, I'm pretty sure you will get that. My family and I have requested private tables on every sailing, and have always had that honored, even when it was just my husband and myself sailing, or last week when just my daughter and I took a Mother-Daughter cruise. We enjoy having that private time together to reconnect after a fun-filled day of activities! If you're still concerned when you arrive, check your Personal Navigator that first day to see where the Dining Assignment meeting is for dining changes. You can always swing by there (usually 12:30 - 3 p.m. that first day) to check to be sure you'll have a private table.

    Whether you dine at your assigned Rotational Dining restaurant or not, you will have the dining servers' traditional gratuities charged to your stateroom account toward the end of the sailing. Since these servers are assigned to you for the duration of the cruise and rotate with you through each restaurant, it's wonderful because they get to know you and your preferences and you get to know them. We always have the most fabulous team and love seeing them each night. I'm sure you'll find the same.

    Have such fun on this adventure on the high seas, Hazel!
