Hello everyone.  For the current Alaska cruises out of Seattle, is the Windjammer open for dinner? 


Thanks.  

Do you know the passenger capacity for your sailing. Richard Fein stated on his last interview that Windjammer dinners would come back at 50% capacity.

I am ready for the Windjammer to come back. We usually eat dinner wearing shorts, and until we can go back to the Windjammer... the dining room, including "formal night..." is where we will eat in shorts and sandals.

I don't have.  We actually have not booked.  Mrs Ldubs was looking at a cruise in Oct and my job was to scope out onboard options.   

 

Thank you everyone for the replies.  This is very useful!

I read Ovation had over 1900 passengers last week so getting closer to that 50% mark. I'm onboard on Friday and as per everything I've read, Windjammer will still be closed for dinner. Would be a welcome surprise if it were open.

Just off the Mariner. Windjammer open only for breakfast and lunch but there were plenty of people wearing shorts and sandals for dinner in the dining room.

We board Harmony on Sunday. It’s a PITA having to pack extra clothes suitable for the MDR especially as we’re flying to Barcelona so therefore have luggage weight restrictions. Keeping my fingers crossed that it’s open on Anthem for our cruise on her next month.

Shorts have been and still are acceptable in the MDR including formal nights. This is not an act of defiance on your part. It is acceptable.

Your casual clothes will be fine...no need to pack clothes just for the MDR.

For a cruise to Alaska, your toes might get cold 🙂

Too late, we flew into Barcelona this morning with our extra MDR clothes 😁. With a bit of juggling between both suitcases we managed to come in just under the weight allowance so all’s good. Had a lovely afternoon and evening in Barcelona, now looking forward to boarding Harmony tomorrow.

What hotel did you opt for .... we've only stayed at Hotel 1898 & The Jazz.

August 27 Ovation sailing was 1432 occupants with 300 top tier included in that number. Windjammer closed for dinner.

Why feel the need to say there were 300 top tier passengers onboard..........As far as I know they put their pants on and crap just like I do?

Do you think they would open the Windjammer if there were 1000 top tier passengers on like it made a difference?

I think they were just stating numbers and that WJ was closed. Nothing else implied.

and why would anyone care on the numbers of top tier passengers?
