Hi Everyone!

I once traveled with other friends and we had 12 at our table which included two children. I would hope DCL would accomodate any size family and adjust tables accordingly.

Usually 8, but you can request. On our Alaska cruise, the table next to us was a family of 12. We are traveling with 16 next summer, and I put the request in. The assured me they would do a big table, or 2 of 8s. Just call, they will try to accommodate you.

We have had 14 and 11 for early seating on two cruises. No issue. We did not request, we only linked our reservations.

One note here - IMO, if you sit at table larger than 8, it's difficult to really carry on a conversation. I'd suggest with 16 you break into 2 groups of 8. Each service team serves an 4 top, a 6 top and an 8 top. By putting the 4 & 6 together, you could be seated with the same dining team. You can switch up which table/people you dine with each night, if you wish.

Good suggestion . We switched seats each night so we could visit with everyone. Never seemed to be an issue for service team. Had a great time. We love to travel with a group!

One cruise we were 14 and it was one huge table.

Our recent July cruise we were 18. We had 11 on one table and 7 with the other. Close together and we had the same server/assistant server. One evening my table of 11 - 6 were not there (4 Remy and 2 Palo) so the remainder of us all set on one table for the evening.
