What time to book Palo?

Hi I will be sailing on the 4 night Bahama cruise on the Disney Wonder. I was wondering what time would be a good time to book Palo on the Pirate night. I figured that would be a good night b/c we will be repeating that restaurant anyway. I don't want to miss the show or fireworks.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!!

We are booked for 7pm. They show a movie that night for the entertainment so we figured we could hang out a little longer on deck. Maybe catch the sunset before eating. I am told you will be out in plenty of time for the fireworks.
We are late seating which is 815.

Late dining is 8:15. On the Wonder there is only the late deck party, which gets started around 9:45. The fireworks are around 10:10/10:15.

If you want to attend Pirate Night, I would suggest making your dining at Palo a little earlier than your MDR time. We like to take our time in Palo and find that we are there longer than we are in the MDR.

In part it depends on how long you might like to linger in Palo. For us, a Palo meal is about 90 minutes, but we don't do coffee or after dinner drinks. Somewhere between 90 and 120 minutes would be typical.

Anything 8 pm or earlier will have you out of Palo in time to enjoy the show....but you won't be hungry for the buffet.

Thank you everyone for your help!

Unless you are on a 3-night cruise, the "show" in the theater that night is a current movie.
