Dinner seating for two on the Magic

Is there ever an option for two to be seated alone at dinner? DH and I booked the 4/7 for just ourselves. We have never had the chance to go away alone together so maximizing our time is kind of the point. Any chance this is possible or will we definitely have tablemates?

You can call and request a table for yourselves, but it's just a request and not guaranteed. You'd probably have a better chance if you select second seating.

It will depend entirely on how full the cruise is. The smallest table size is a four seater so if the cruise is not to capacity they can put you alone on a four top, but obviously if the cruise is completely full they might not be able to have two seats empty. I believe couples are most likely to be put on tables for six alongside two other couples.

if you're not sitting at a table by yourselves, ask the head server (basically he's a maitre'd). We forgot to request that we be seated alone and did so that first night when we got to the dining room and it was not an issue, they moved us to a new table (we were 5 and the table sat 8) and that was our new table number each night.

We have done 4 magic/wonder cruises by ourselves and have requested our own table and each time the request was honored.

Good Luck.

We've only asked once, but it was honored. We had it noted on our reservation, and also verified when we got onboard by going to the designated place for dining changes right when they opened. It was already taken care of, and we hope to keep doing this on our next cruises.

With the exception of my first Disney cruise (I met up with friends) I cruised solo for five more times with Disney and requested my own table and got it each time.
