This is totally your call. Our personal preference is not to miss the MDR at all and we choose to do Palo for brunch. We really enjoy the continuity of service and the time with our table mates each night. If we HAVE to miss one, the pirate menu would be it all the way.

I think I said this in our group, but Pirate Night is Fun!! I don't remember what food we had...but then I only remember ONE thing we ate the entire cruise, so...lol. But just the experience...there's no way I'd miss it!!! :-) I booked us in for a (surprise) Brunch at Palo so that we won't miss any of the Main Dining stuff.

Definitely change to late dining, we have found that we like it so much more...no being rushed back from an excursion to go straight to dinner.

Also, we've done the Western 3 times. Here is my 2 cents:

LOVE LOVE LOVE Grand Cayman Stingray Sandbar...if there is ANY way you can get out there, do it! It is amazing...

We have had nothing but issues in Cozumel with our excursions that we've booked through DCL, and on our most recent western, we decided to NOT do a Cozumel excursion. Instead, we shopped a bit, went back to the ship for lunch and I went to the spa for 2 hours in the afternoon.

Snorkeling on Castaway Cay is fun, but if you do it, go first thing in the morning. The later it gets, the more people have been swimming and kicking up sand, and it gets cloudy. There is some neat stuff out in the water there.

Pirate night menu is actually one of my favorites, but I know I'm in the minority there, and I'll never win the argument. We prefer Palo for brunch, that way we don't miss any of the MDR dinners.

Have a fantastic time!

It's nice to see somebody else say that! Other than Palo, Pirate night was my favorite menu! I really don't understand why everyone hates it!!!

Hi Jordan! So glad to see you're trying out DCL!

Looks like a fantastic plan ...

I'd keep the Palo evening you have now, but when you get on board try to change it to the next night. We've successfully changed our Palo plans on fully booked cruises by asking in the dining reservation place as soon as we board.

I'm not a fan of Pirate night (dinner, the show is awesome!), but I'm less of a fan of missing a Palo dinner!

I would do a snorkle, stingray combo in cayman. We used moby Dick last minute and loved them! The snorkeling is only 30 minutes a d you don't have to get in the water w the rays to enjoy them if your friend is really scared.
I would plan a beach day in cozumel. The snorkling is a average here at best. Instead head to Mr sanchos by taxi and do the pay as you go option. Or if you really want to snorkel here take a taxi to the money bar. We bring our own equipment but you can rent there too. Its only a $10 taxi ride and no entrance fee just buy a couplenof drinks.

Talking Four Wheel Adventure

We just sailed this same cruise a few weeks ago. We very much enjoyed the Four wheeling adventure in Jamaica. It was so much fun even though I had never been four wheeling. It is worth the time and money to go.
