Ultimate Dining on Independence

Recommended Posts

We will be sailing on the Independence in less than 40 days.  We are considering a dining package.  I have read so many different reports about the ultimate dining packages.  We are taking the trip in celebration of our 20th anniversary, completing my master's degree, and a high school graduation.  There are 4 of us, 2 children (ages 17 and 12.)  We have sailed many times and many ships/brands (RCCL, Costa, Disney, Carnival.  We want this to be special and we are foodies.  Can anyone one answer a few questions to help me plan?


Can we use the ultimate dining package to attend the Galley Brunch?  Cupcake Decorating Class?


If not, can I purchase 5-night dining package and these two be included?


Is Johnny Rockets included in the Ultimate Dining Package?  Does this include milkshakes?


When adding a dining package online, do I reserve a spot for our 12-year-old or wait until we board?  I have read different posts about this.  The fine print says something about paying for the dining package and then they apply the overage as OBC.


Since the boat is just coming back to Ft. Lauderdale, does anyone have the 5 night daily itineraries?  How am I suppose to plan meals if I am not sure about showtimes?  Are showtimes always at the same time?


Is there a formal night on a 5-night cruise?  Is lobster served on 5-night cruises?


Crazy question, does the hibachi at Izumi serve white sauce or yum yum sauce?


Our ports of call are Labadee and Falmouth.  I would love any recommendations for these 2 ports.  

Thanks in advance for any info.
