More than one Palo reservation?

Just curious if anyone has had luck getting a second Palo dinner reservation. We're planning an adults only 4-night Dream cruise for the future and don't have much interest in going to the main dining rooms this trip. We're planning one night at Remy and would love to do 2 nights at Palo. I know you have to wait for everyone else to book first but what are the odds that a spot will open up? How do we put in a request?

You go to Palo after you board to be put on the waitlist, or you can call them from one of the phones onboard.

Two dinner reservations at Palo won't be booked on the same cruise but you certainly could be added to a wait list.

We managed it one time a few years back by being called from the wait list the afternoon of the last evening (illness forced a cancel) for a second Palo dinner.

Not in the evening, but Brunch at Palo is an option for another meal there.

Upon boarding, go to the sign up table for Palo and put your name in.

Good luck.

You can book one brunch and one dinner in Palo prior to boarding. It is actually quite common on 7 night cruises to be able to book a second dinner later in the cruise. They will waitlist you on the first day and will actually book it on the second day or any following day. And even if you are not on the waitlist, there is nothing to keep you from calling and asking if they have an opening for that evening--we've been seated that way.

The idea it that thru the embarkation day, they only allow one reservation per adult (for each meal) so that everyone has a chance to get one. After that, their interest shifts to filling the restaurant and they will happily allow extra seatings.
