I thought it was staggered from 5:45, 6 and 6:15? We will be on the Fantasy and I requested to have Animators first. We had second dining but was changed to main and have BBB appts at 5:15 that were made previously to dining time change.

We had ERAERAE and we loved it Typically on the Eastern cruises the first two nights have the most ship movement and we started off midship deck two. Also on the second night is Formal night and we were in RC which is a short walk to take pictures in atrium. One of my DD's went to BBB earlier that day and felt like a princess in the dining room.

Pirate night is in EG and made for a great background in the pirate pictures at the dining tables and again just a short walk up the steps for photos in the atrium.

The last morning is in EG and you can leave your luggage just outside the restaurant if you eat breakfast there and then an easy walk up the stairs to deck 3 and off the ship

Every rotation is great because you are on vacation.

Just wanted to throw out there that the Fantasy Dec 29 sailing formal night is on NYE. (I was told by DCL.) I believe that the formal night is on a different night on the non NYE sailings ??

I called the first day we could book excursions and adult dining - this is our first cruise, so we are the last of the ones able to book stuff, and we still were able to "make a request" for your preferred rotation. Hope this helps!

A vote for AREAREA. We did Palo on Night 5. Perfect. Loved it.

I would skip both nights in Animator's Palate and do Remy & Palo on those nights. Too noisy to hear and couldn't see the shows...wished we would have scheduled Remy & Palo on those nights.

No the times aren't staggered. There is an early dining time and a late. You may have seen different times because they vary on the different ships and maybe even from season to season. Early was 5:45 on my sailing. a 5:15 BBB appt will be very rushed if you want to make dinner on time unless the early seating time has changed recently.

I don't think that is a valid rotation

Do you mean AERAERA or ERAERAE?
