Its not an early saver fare..its a guarantee ...and if i could find a way to post the cruise personliser bit on here i would because it very very clearly says
Sitting .....early dining ...Confirmed
Late dining Currently waitlisted
In the bit above where it has preferences it also says Early Seating
Theres nothing in any of the paperwork i saw which said "subject to change etc "
When i hear what the outcome is i will post it
I do know they met other unhappy passengers who had late dining as Confirmed on their cruise personliser who onboard found it changed to early
There was a queue of people at the dining room all in same boat so something must be wrong with Cunards system ...it will be especially difficult for anyone with medical conditions who have to eat at certain times and who cannot eat late because even if you go to dinner at 8.30 we all know you wont actually get your meal till 9pm
I am fairly sure that there are only two types of bookings, CUNARD FARE or EARLY SAVER.
Where you say "Its not an early saver fare..its a guarantee", a guarantee merely refers to the fact that a cabin has not been allocated at the time of booking. I think it is more than likely that this booking is an Early Saver Fare, which has little to do with the actual time the booking was made.
As for saying confirmed, that can be changed at any time up to receiving the on board dining arrangements, which is a card in the cabin giving the dining arrangements. It seems likely they have been bumped in favour of a Cunard Fare party, who take precedence.
Early Saver Bookers
Early Savers receive 2nd priority for dining. We will attempt to accommodate your request but this is not guaranteed. Dining will be allocated on board and cannot be changed. To register a dining preference please click on the below link.
