Coastal Kitchen/Symphony. Lowly Junior Suite ??'s


Recommended Posts

First time in a Suite (Junior) on Royal and interested in trying the Coastal Kitchen. I know it is only available to us lowly JS'ers for dinner on a "if available" basis.

My questions...

...Is this something we try to reserve ahead of time or upon embarkation?

...Should we try for reservations each morning, hoping for cancellations?

...Should we just show up to the CK and hope for the best?

UGH! First world problems!

If you don’t mind eating earlier, you shouldn’t have a problem getting a table in the Coastal Kitchen. Last October we were on the Allure, for fourteen days, and never had a problem getting a table. We got there shortly after 6pm and we when left, before 7pm,  there were still many tables available. There were a lot fewer tables on lobster night though.

You might have a problem getting a reservation for “prime time” dining. Some nights, after dinner, we would sit in the suite lounge for a drink, and about 7:30, and it looked pretty full.

Agree, be ready to be flexible with eating times available and go to CK 1st day. But though rare at peak travel/Holidays or when many upper tier are traveling a few CC Members in Jr Siites reported they didnt get use CK at all.

I agree with Island Lady..lots of other choices.......I enjoyed the CK setting on Harmony, but the food was just average.  We only ate there a couple times on a B2B cruise (14 days). Buy the 3 night dining package....and think of the money your saving by not booking a grand suite (or higher).

Can non suite guests pay a fee to get in CK? Or is just strictly for suite guests?

 

Nope, strictly for suite guests and Pinnacle level C&A members.  Guests of these groups are sometimes allowed.

Thanks Bob.

 

We are in a suite next time but may have a non suite couple with us. Too bad for them on that night :classic_cool:

 

Ask the host/hostess/concierge.  Your friends may be able to join you for dinner one or two nights.

Presently on the Allure. Pinnacles and Suite guests can bring guests one night for dinner in the Coastal Kitchen.

 

Some of the parents sailing in suites have their older children sailing in regular cabins. Their children are able to join them for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day at the Coastal Kitchen. These children also have full access to the Suite Lounge everyday.

Are the extra guests making CK crowded for breakfast and lunch?

We are in a JS (Emerald)  and traveling with our friends who are in a Grand Suite (Diamond Plus).  We won't have a problem eating together, I hope.  Thoughts?

Your friend in GS should be able to make reservations for your group via concierge
