How do yo find out ahead of time what shows are playing on a cruise? Are the shows at different times? Trying to figure how to coordinate shows with dinner times. Thanks for any input.
There are various shows on Princess cruises depending on the ship and the length of the cruise. There are shows in the theater just about every night, usually in the area of 8pm and repeated 10pm, times may vary by 30 mins.. Sometimes there is and early show around 7pm with a repeat around 9pm. Shows are production shows and guest entertainers. If your ship has a Vista Lounge, or on the Coral the Universe Lounge, there can also be shows in that venue, usually comics or singer, but especially on the Coral there is a production show. The shows in these alternate lounges are staggered with the theater, so that you can in theory attend 2 different shows in one evening. But, in practice the venues fill up and it is very difficult to go from one to another. Sometimes comics, singers and magic are in the Explorer's Lounge. All shows are listed daily in the Princess Patter.
All shows are walk in and fill early. Production shows during the 8pm hour start to fill 45 mins. before showtime.
Now for the dining. If you dine early you provide yourself flexibility to plan your evening around the shows you wish to see. If you wish to dine late you can see some shows, but other shows and activities will be taking place during your dinner time.
