Enchanted Garden Booths

Who gets those cool curved booths I see in the EG photos? Are those the best seats or too hectic?

I don't know how you get assigned it as your regular main dining room table (except perhaps to request it ahead of time), but they're up for grabs at lunch when EG is open!...

And breakfast. I believe they only sit 4, though.

Be careful getting in and out, there is a step.

I've heard, and experienced, that concierge gets them. We had one, and it was disappointing. Small and cramped and it turned out I would rather look at them than sit at them.

We got one and did nothing special to get it. It was just luck of the draw. And another family in our Dismeet got one also.

We got one too, but didn't do anything special to get it. While kinda cool to sit there, I don't know that I loved it. It seemed kinda cramped, especially with all 4 of us, and all our plates, drinks, etc on the table. Well, my DH did almost always order 2 entrees though, LOL!

We received one ... we didn't request it and we definitely weren't sailing concierge. It was pretty neat though and my kids were super excited (actually, so was I ... LOL!).

We got one of these in 2012 as well (not concierge) and were a party of 4. We loved it especially with the view of the changing flowers above us.

We also received the booth on our very first cruise, the Dream and also were not concierge. We really enjoyed it and there was plenty of room for the 3 of us but I can imagine that with 4 it might start to feel a little tight. We also did not request it.

We have had the round tables twice and worked fine for the 4 of us. I thought our rect. table at royal court felt more cramped.

We had one of the booths on our last cruise and we were not concierge and were not celebrating anything. I think it is just luck of the draw - and only having 4 people or less.

I had called DCL to request it for the MDR's because my almost 2 year old wouldn't sit in a highchair since he was a year old. We request booths at restaurants. He also doesn't like booster seats.

We did NOT get the teacup booths during MDR's. Instead we really enjoyed EG for breakfast instead of the chaos of Cabanas. We eat breakfast early enough & got the request every time. By the way, we are a family of 4.
