I'm still a relative newbie to cruising, only 2 under my belt and both of those were on Carnival. Can someone tell me how I book appointments at the beauty salon and also at the alternative restaurant ocean liners? Will there be someone in the lobby area or do I go to the places directly? How soon can i do this? For example, if we start boarding at noon, should I make a mad dash at 12:01 for Ocean Liner's and the beauty salon? Any advice is more than welcome.

Thank you!

If wanting a special appointment to get hair done for Formal night, make it ASAP, that seems to be the most busy time for them. As for the Specialty restauarnt, depending on which cruise line, they have different areas to sign up, either do it at the restaurant, or at the front desk in lobby, and Celebrity you can call from your room to book just about anything.
