Items to Remember

  • While some cruise lines offer more flexible dining options without requiring reservations, dining schedules, seating assignments or dress codes, others may have a specific dress theme set for dinner each evening, such as casual, semi-formal, formal or island wear. We recommend checking your ship’s schedule before leaving home to make sure you pack the appropriate attire.
  • In addition to the main dining rooms, several cruise lines also offer specialty or fine dining restaurants onboard. Just note that these dining options most often require reservations and an additional per person rate. If you’re so inclined, it’s wise to book early, as peak reservation times can fill up quickly.
  • Remember, you aren’t required to eat onboard. We definitely recommend being adventurous and checking out your dining options on shore to sample some of the native tastes.
