We are booked on a cruise on Caribbean Princess on
feb. 5th 2005. We usually select Pc dining because we enjoy a table for two for the entire week.
There has been alot of problems that I have been reading regarding PC dining. We enjoy eating early
about 6:00. Would we be able to select early traditional dining and get a table for two?
We have been on the Sun and the Dawn and they did offer tables for two at the traditional seating. We never opted for them, but we did see several tables for two. We are booked on the Star in December and one of the options for traditional seating was a table for two. We prefer traditional seating just because we know exactly what time we'll go to dinner and we like to get to know our waiter. Good luck!

On the Sun, Grand, Island and Dawn Princess we never had trouble getting a reservations for a table for two. Most of the time we have found a wait staff we really like and then get a standing reservation. Have found that there are many more tables for two in the PC dining rooms than the traditional.

Helen, I have read that on the Caribbean, the traditional dining room had a few tables for two...empty many nights. I, too have the same concern as you and this is why I chose PC dining. So far from other threads, it seems as if you do go as early as 6:00pm in the PC dining room, you won't have problems getting your table for two.
