Sunrise - Your Time Dining / Hub App

Recommended Posts

On the Sunrise can you make your "Your Time" dining reservation on the Hub App?  Will the app then notify us when our table is ready?  I know this works on some of the other Carnival ships, but wondering if it is up and running on the Sunrise?  TIA

Food & Drinks: A comprehensive list of delicious dining options, dining-related events and dining menus, enticing refreshment venues and beverage-related events. On select ships, you can make dining reservations and check-in to Your Time Dining. Purchase from the app CHEERS! and Bottomless Bubbles beverage programs once on board.

I would be interested in this information for Carnival Inspiration. I loathe anytime dining and think being able to reserve through the app may make it more tolerable.

I think the dining reservations refers to the for pay restaurants (Italian, Asian, BBQ, etc).  They actually started using the Hub App to check in for YTD and it worked great.  No more waiting in line.  I will never do set time dining again.  Always felt rushed and missed activities.

To reiterate what Moondog said, with YTD you are not making a "reservation," you are checking in just as you would if you were at the desk.  The only difference is that the app will alert you when your table is ready without you have to physically walk to the desk to check in.  In-app reservations are for specialty dining venues.

 

I can't wait to try the HUB app check in on my next cruise!

We were just on the Vista 2 weeks ago and used the App.  You are basically "requesting a table" which is checking in.  Once it assigns you a table, it sends on the App a notice and you have 10 minutes to arrive at the restaurant to the desk.  So, you must be dressed and ready to go.  We found that by the time we did this, and then left our room and walked to the dining room, we would get the notice and Table number.  You then just show your phone to the hostess, they read the table number and off you go with a waiter just like normal.  No standing around in the hallway waiting.

 

However.... we did see lots of people who still showed up at dining room without doing this, standing around.

Also it says RIGHT ON YOUR S&S CARD - go to check in at the desk on Deck 4 by Pixels studio.  You are not supposed to go to dining room like every other ship...  you have to check in first.  Its easier just to use the App, we found out.

We're on the Sunrise now and love the app. As stated, you need to be prepared to be there in the 10 minutes once you get your Table Ready notification

All great if you can book well in advance, unfortunately, I usually book close in.  Often YTD is all that is available.  Trust me I am only relegated to it, I do not choose it.

Interesting, because from my experience YTD is the hardest one to get if you book late

Does anybody know if the YTD check-in via the Hub app is available on the Pride?

This is a cool new feature.  It didn't exist 12 months ago when I was on the Sunrise, or at at least I wasn't aware of it.

Thank you! very helpful! 
After you check-in via the app and have the table available, do you just go to the dining room then? 

Also, are you able to make requests via the app (specific dining team, table size)? 
TIA!

On the App you check in how many people you have, and then request table.  It does not ask table size or area in room.  You have exactly 10 minutes to arrive and claim the table or it cancels.  So you need to be dressed and walking that way before you do the App.  If you want to request a certain area of dining room, dining team, you can't use the App.

I assume that you were on the Sunshine ... the Sunrise didn't exist 12 months ago 😉

 

You're right.  It is a cool new feature.  I hope that they have it on my next cruise!

Don't worry--we were on Sunrise just over the weekend and forgot about the app for YourTime dining!  😆We used it to check our account, FunTimes info, etc.   But for dinner we walked up to the desk on deck 5, after the few people in line we got our table right away and went to dinner.   This was around 6pm.

And you will love it.  It totally sold me on YTD.  I wasn't a fan before but am now.
