Linked Dining Reservations

We are cruising in March 2014 and have requested linked reservations for 4 cabins, 12 people total. We recieved a note back that we would be guaranteed the same rotation, but they could not guarantee that we would be at the same table. Have any of you been able to link up 12 diners and were you able to all sit together? Thanks!

We had 18 people, 6 cabins linked. They put us at 3 tables, grouped beside each other, with the same serving team. You could be flexible as to how you group at each table.

We had 27 linked on our cruise. We were all in the same area with each family having their own table and three couples at a table for six.

Not a problem at all. We have had a table of 12 on the Magic & the Fantasy. On the Wonder they offered to have us sit at one table, but we asked for two tables -- one for the adults and one for the kids.

We were told the same thing. We sailed on the Dream over April break in 2011 with a group of 12. We were seated together with no problem at all. Enjoy your cruise!

We have 44 people linked on our cruise that leaves this Saturday. Of course, we won't all be sitting at the same table, but we will be in one area of the restaurant. We've always linked with a fairly large number of people, and if I remember correctly, we were able to sit 13 at one table one time, so I don't think you should have a problem with 12. Good luck!

We had 11 all at one table, with a chair left over so we could have had 12. This was 11 people split between 4 cabins on the Dream.

Big test is April 8. 15 of us from 4 cabins on the Wonder.

My father in law is taking the family on the Dream in May. We have ten people in three cabins. I assume our reservations are already linked because when I log in to the DCL site I can see my in laws info. Will DCL automatically seat the ten of us together for dinner or will we need to make a special request?

We had 5 cabins and 20 people on our last cruise and if you talk to your head dining person the first night they should be able to get you all together every night. They were very good wih us and were able to seat us together every night and even at breakfast the morning of the last day.
