Palo on Eastern Fantasy (San Juan)

Does anyone have any insight on when I should book Palo on our April 20th Eastern itinerary that includes SJ? I believe this is an itinerary that has not been sailed yet. I had this all figured out for our Dream cruise last May but now I'm completely confused on how I determined the best date. We would want it on a night that repeats a dining room and not on Pirate night. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Since you're on a 7-night cruise repeating isn't an issue. You will hit all three MDR's twice and one three times. Pirate night will be on St. Thomas day (Tuesday).

Any of your last four nights on a 7 night will be a repeat of a dinning room.

We did night 5 because we wanted to hit the MDRs the first 3 nights, wanted to be with family on night 4 (pirate night), night 6 is semi-formal, so wanted to be with family and wanted to be together on night7, final dinner. So, 5 was the only real choice.

We did this itinerary 11/17 and had raeraer (we had requested another rotation but didn't get it). We had Remy booked for night 5 and missed the animation show at AP which is done on the 2nd time you're in that MDR.

This helps so much. I'm going to start a thread requesting navigators from this itinerary. I wasn't sure if SJ had been sailed yet so glad to get this feedback. Thx!

Night 5, 6 & 7 are possible nights for the second show in AP. That is one that I would not miss. I chose night 3 for our Palo night on this itinerary in March. We don't want the first or last night, neither formal night and not pirate night. That left night 3. Nights 1, 2 & 3 are possible nights for the Crush show in AP. Frankly that is neat for the one table that Crush stops to talk to in your section. It really wasn't a big deal for us because we were not that table. Nothing you don't see at Turtle Talk at Epcot. The second show was much better IMO because everyone's drawings were used a few times.
