Does Specialty dining package require using it on first night?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have first hand experience on 1st night being required?  I am sailing on Allure in January 2019 and have 5 night specialty dining package. 

 

Overview on Royal sight says....   "First courtesy dinner reservation will be made for Day 1 or Day 2"

 

If they book me for first night, can I change it to second night as I have time conflict with a surf lesson on day 1?

As part of the booking process you select night 1 or 2 and the time.

To:  Ourusualbeach....... Thank you for info and quick response.

 

Before I received your response, I found that I had booked day 1.  I called Royal Caribbean and was told that I could modify my day 1 booking in "my calendar" and change it to day 2.  However, day 2 is showing "sold out".  Will try to change when I get on ship.

We just got off Symphony. We had the BOGO and the 5 night package,  we picked day 1 at 8:30 for BOGO and night 2 as the 5 nighter on the cruise planner.   Once on board we were told that the first night is no longer assigned because of the huge amount of changes.  We went up to wonderland to make all our reservations for the cruise.  We picked day 3 as our first night without problem.  After we picked all our nights we were told that if we went to Izumi we could get Habichi Grill on a slow night and just cancel the corresponding reservation.  If this is the new norm please post when you get back.  Our Diamond drink vouchers were good in all Specialty restaurants and MDR and we were ordering 15 minutes or so after leaving the end of happy hour in the lounge and going to one of the specialty picks.  Have used the packages on many cruises and have always changed the first night as we like to meet our stablemates on day 1. happy cruising

The BOGO did they require you to eat at any certain restaurant?

We were on the Allure in October and they only allowed the BOGO to be used at the Brazilian and Giovannis.

You were not able to use at Chops or 150.

thanks
