Question Couples Villa and Palo Brunch...Can it be done?

DH & I are celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary on our upcoming cruise and I want the day to be special!!!

Here's how I envision the day going in my head...

I want to reserve the Couples Spa Villa package, followed by Palo brunch. Also, is it possible to request a window seat at brunch? (Am I asking for too much?)

Not knowing how early the spa opens or the times available at Palo, does this sound feasible?

I can tell you nearly all seats in Palo are window seats and you can request it subject to your party size and layout of tables and previous people in

I would say pop by before your brunch at Palo to ask.

Brunch has long hours from 10 am last sitting is circa 11.30 so you would think you can fit one in if there open by 9am but the online reservation system will block out time on any booking so that's where an issue maybe.

Do you know how long brunch typically lasts? Wondering what time the last seating is at Palo?

We have done brunch at 11ish and then did the couples choice in the spa villa in the afternoon. I'm not sure the spa will have times early enough to get the spa villa in before brunch. You definitely don't want to feel rushed during the couple's spa treatment. You will want to be able to enjoy every last minute.

We were seated at a window table for brunch without asking. Almost all of the tables had very good views. You can always stop by and put a request in if you would like as well.

Hmmm, brunch 1st, I may like that idea even better. No rushing!! Although I may roll off the massage table after pigging out at Palo!

Actually you can schedule brunch as late as 12:30pm. I have that slot booked for our upcoming Fantasy cruise.

That being said I would consider doing the 10am brunch and then the spa villa afterward so you don't feel rushed. I'd say you can comfortably do brunch in 1:30-2 hours. Depending on how many times you go back up to the buffet.
