Fantasy Inaugural and Remy observation

So, I've noticed over time that at the beginning of the booking window for Gold Castaway Club members, all Palo and Remy reservations were gone. Now there are open slots for Remy on the first night. They have been there for a few weeks - but only on the first night.

Any thoughts as to why Remy seems to be open the first night? There has already been a discussion as to why everything probably booked up so early (VIPs, lots of Platinums) but for the life of me I can't come up with a reason why Remy isn't full.

Just a guess,
No $ left after paying inaugural price.

Actually there are no CC members booked on this sailing, since reading/experiencing the Dream inaugural.



We're going to give her 5+ months to work out the kinks.

There could be several reasons. They may have had times blocked off then opened them up. A lot of people don't like to do specialty dining on the first night because they want to explore the ship, meet the dining team, etc. It is kind of a half day on embarkation already so people are usually getting used to all the ship facilities. We have always noticed that the first night is least busy for Palo/Remy.

Say what? There certainly are CC members on the Fantasy MV! Not sure what you meant?

OP--I did notice over the past several months that the ship would go from sold out to have a couple of staterooms pop up and then be gone and different ones would pop up. We are on the March 30th Magic sailing, so I would watch the Fantasy MV too as I checked my sailing.

It was a joke, since with the Dreams inaugural there were some issues, so those in the know are waiting til it's all smooth sailing... Kidding of course!

Why dining ressies are available now that weren't sooner? It's possible that there was a large group holding a reservation and they cancelled... That would be my guess... Maybe VIPs?

I'm gold and was on exactly at midnight and Remy was available for most nights. I got Costa Maya night. You are right Palo has been booked solid, all ressies grabbed by concierge/platnium people. They have been calling the platinum guests to try to get them in for their free Palo meal. I actually saw an 8:30 ressie for GC night, and tried to grab it a couple of week ago, but it was gone by the time i tried to confirm it........
