Dinner rotatio

Can you pick your dining rotation? How do you know which is best? We are on the 7 night out of Galveston 10/12. Can't seem to find navigators for 7 day Galveston cruises. How do you find out which night is pirate night etc.
Thanks so much for the help!

We find that if we allow the DCL staff to place us instead of making requests they feel they need to accommodate (at the expense of other factors) that we end up with better tablemates and/or better servers.

I would much rather have excellent service and good conversation than a particular restaurant on a given night.

You can put a request on your reservation for a specific rotation, but it's not guaranteed.

There really isn't any difference in the rotations, as everyone onboard will eat in all the MDRs, with the same menus, during the cruise. Some people feel it's important to be in a more "formal" dining room for formal night, but I've found it really doesn't make any difference. We've done formal night in Animators, Lumierie's, and Parrot Cay.

Have you checked the Navigator link on the Stateroom tab above? There's a 7 night Galveston set there. Pirate night is night 4.
