Specialty dining package question

Recommended Posts

We received a 5 dinner SDP for our transatlantic cruise on the Pearl as a booking incentive.   I just tried to make reservations and see that Cagney’s, Le Bistro, and La Cocina all indicate that pricing is “a la carte”.  Only Moderno and Teppanyaki list $0 in the pricing.  They are all listed under the SDP options.  Can someone please explain how this works? Thank you!

Your meal at Carneys, Le Bisto and La Cucina is also covered by the SDP. The reference to a la carte is because that is how it is charged if you don't have the SDP. You are limited to one entree in Cagneys or Le Bistro and there have occasionally been some other additional costs (i.e. an uncharge for Shrimp Cocktail in Cagneys) but they will be notified. I believe that the Shrimp Cocktail uncharge has gone away with the recent repricing.

 

Your waiter may say that there are also limits to the number of apps or desserts, but they are wrong. If you order multiples then you won't be charged (based on reported experiences). The T&Cs only mention the limit of one entree.

You can use your package at Moderno, Teppanyaki, La Cucina, Le Bistro, Cagney’s for free. Multiple appetizers, a single entree, and multiple desserts at the a la carte restaurants. You can also use it at the sushi bar for a $7 upcharge.

I originally posted saying that it doesn't, but it may be that isn't the case any more (It didn't used to be included).

 

The T&C's say that you get 4 menu items included.

I've just changed my original post. I may have been wrong. Perhaps someone with up to date info may be able to confirm.

That is a very recent change. We will be cruising in a few weeks (already pulled the cases out) and will see exactly how it works.

I too have the 5 package and wondered what happens if I have more than 5 speciality  reservations.  Does it cover the first 5 in order?  Also, how does it work with Cirque?   Does that reservation take 1 of your 5 options?

Thanks!

You let the know when you arrive how you want to pay for each meal. If you want to pay directly for your first meal then just let them know.
