On May 27th my partner and I are going on our very first cruise (Costa Favolosa). Two of our friends are also joining us, but due to complications when booking had to book there trip independently.
Assuming I have understood all that I have read, dining times and tables are allocated once you embark? Will we have the option to request a table with our friends or will we be separate?
Also, regarding suitable attire. I tend to be a smart jeans and shirt type of person. Will this be acceptable in the dining areas?
Many thanks in advance from one rather confused cruise virgin!
