HAL - "Open Seating Notification"

Jump to last reply

We are scheduled to sail on the Eurodam in mid-March. We selected "open seating" as our dining option.

This morning we reached this message from HAL:

We would like to advise you of a change to the open seating option offered in
the main dining room aboard the ms Eurodam sailing on March 11, 2017. Open
seating will be offered as normal; however, due to the number of guests
requesting to dine at 8:00pm, available seating will be limited after 6:00pm.
Should you wish to dine later and space is not available in the dining room,
complimentary dining is always available in the Lido Market after 5:30pm, or
for a nominal fee we invite you to make reservations at our Canaletto, Tamarind
or Pinnacle Grill Restaurants. We regret any disappointment this change may
cause.

This is only our 2nd cruise so we are rather inexperienced cruisers and are not sure what to do in this situation. Our 1st cruise was a 14 night Baltic cruise also on HAL. We had open seating and generally ate around 7:30 or 8:00 in the MDR. Actually our delightful server reserved our table for 2 on a window for the entire cruise on our first night of dining in MDR. We were very pleased.

We were looking forward to a 2 top probably around 7:30ish and don't feel we should have to pay a supplement to guarantee this. Any experienced cruisers ever encountered a similar situation? Any advice? We called the 1-800 provided but the office is closed on Saturdays.

We appreciate your help.
