Fill 1st page with waitlist posts

Welcome to America 2009. Instead of trying to help themselves and try and find an answer (which requires some reading) most folks just start typing (wanting someone else to do it for them).

 

You are exactly right, with 10-20 identical posts on the front page, WHY would anyone start any more ?? Go figure !

I can answer this one.

 

Because, when folks like myself, who just discovered the 'waitlist', use the search system, instead of finding the simple answer to the question/mystery, we have to plow through rude comments, smart alecks listing the links 'to all the threads', and all kinds of flaming.

 

So, I continue to read all this nonsense, still trying to find the answer.

If you truly are still looking for the answer, nothing has changed in your dining request, except the way it is worded on your documents.

 

You are never guaranteed a dining time unless you are a Platinum cruiser. It is only a request. Even though it used to say "early" or "late" on your documents, that did not mean you would get that time for sure. You find out when you get to the ship and get your S&S card. If, at that time, you don't get what you requested, you can go to the Maitre D' and ask him to try and change you to the dining time you want. He will try to accomodate you.

 

Some say this is a computer glitch at Carnival, others say it is just the new way they are doing things in order to prevent people from getting upset if they don't get the dining time they asked for.

 

Happy cruising! :)

It's not just you - it's just ridiculous! I too have read alot about the waitlisting ! I think if the web page was changed to read "requested dining preference" or something along those lines, it wouldn't panic people. We ALL know that we're waitlisted for our preferences, but I think seeing it in print make people think something is wrong.

Amen brother (or sister:D)!

 

Magic City Cruiser: Right on! This complaining about mispelling, and why don't people search first, blah, blah, blah. If you can't be helpful, don't bother to post, just move on with your bad self!:rolleyes: That's what I'm doing after this post!:p

With all due respect to you, I figured out what was going on with this new waitlisting by reading about 4 posts on the 1st thread I saw a couple of days ago.

 

It isn't that hard !!
