Well you didnÂ´t mention what ship you are on, but usually there are not too much tables for two available in the dining room. When boarding the ship you should see the Maitre DÂ´ as soon as he is available to request your wish. He takes the requests usually at embarkation time and his schedule is posted in the Cruise compass. You can also get the information from the pursers desk.
It might be that if he is able to change you at all that you are stuck with your table of four for the first night, as the changes sometimes are not possible for the first night.
Give it a try but donÂ´t let it ruin your cruise expreience. Have fun.
