MDR time on booking?

Recommended Posts

As a first time cruiser with HAL, can anyone tell me if my dining time - late seating and table size shows up anywhere on my online booking pages?

 

Thanks :)

No it will not, It will be on your Stateroom Card you'll get when you board. Unless you recommended a table size you will be assigned. You can check when you board by going to the MDR.

Once we book a cruise, the confirmation we get from our TA indicates that we are confirmed for Early Fixed -- requested a table for 2.

Same if you book through a HAL, Personal Cruise Consultant.

 

Not sure if you book online with HAL.

We have had the same experience. At booking, we request late seating, fixed dining (usually 8:00pm), and that does show up on our booking record from the TA.

If you don't make that request when booking the cruise, they usually assign you "As You Wish Dining" which is commonly called AnyTime Dining. If you are early enough, you can request early or late fixed dining and specify a table size (2,4,6,8). Closer to the departure date, the fixed dining availability get booked up and they will wait-list you.

Our travel agent summary via email says 2nd seating table size 6 - but it also says:

 

"Dining status summary - status U2WOA"

 

Any ideas?

Never seen that before. All fixed-time dining on most HAL ships is in the Upper level of the MDR. And you have 2nd seating. So, that may explain the "U" and the "2". No idea on the WOA.
