Default 45 Days booking for show question

When does it open exactly, midnight? What time zone? Are good times/dates booked immediatley or can we take our time that day to book? If we are traveling with four other cabins of family members do we all have to book separately? Also, one cabin is a Haven suite, do they have to prebook at all or are they automatically guaranteed seats? Mosty trying to organize for Blue man as traveling with kids so need early show.

Booking becomes available sometime in the morning. It's best to check when you get up. You will be able to reserve dates/times for the people on your reservation. Others will have to make their own. Suite passengers are not guaranteed a seat. They need to make reservations as well if they want a specific date and time. They can, however, choose to be escorted to the show by their concierge and sit in a special area if they want.

Hope that helps

You don't need to worry at all.

I booked the Blue Men on the first day that bookings opened, as I shared the concerns you raise about certain shows being booked quickly, but as far as I know there were places available for just about everything even after boarding the ship.

It's worth booking what you know you are going to want to do, even if only to avoid having to do so once onboard, but there is no panic to get it done immediately, 45 days out. Just check in sometime on that day and you should be fine. I'm sure someone else will chip in if this info is wrong, and there have been cases of things booking up.
