I can't understand why one must replace the other...

Our last cruise, we booked Palo the earliest possible time (we had late MDR dining)...we went to Palo and then to the MDR to say hi to our servers and "taste" the menu....

Yes, we were full, but we didn't want to miss out on any of the menus, plus I scheduled it for an EG night, which I thought would be my favorite dining room...it turned out my fave was AP on the Fanstasy anyway!

I plan on doing this again our next cruise in Nov. 2014..

We had AERAERA rotation and did Palo on day 5, missing Prince and princess night. Worked well for us.

For us on a 7 night Fantasy cruise, we always book our Remy & Palo dinners for the 1st night (1st night is always hectic in the MDR, with folks trying to find their assigned tables & others complaining they didn't get the correct table) & then on Pirate night, just not our cup of tea. If time allows on the 1st night we try to hit the MDR for dessert or coffee & basically to introduce ourselves to our Serving team & Table mates.

The only negative to going to both Palo & the MDR the same night, is that it means you will miss the show that night. Now, if they have a matinee [only offered on sea days but not guaranteed] that would solve the issue. If you have kids, I wouldn't miss the main stage shows.

Unless you are going to Costa Maya, this is the show schedule for the Fantasy.

Eastern Schedule:

Night 1 - Welcome Show
Night 2 - Aladdin
Night 3 - Wishes
Night 4 - Movie
Night 5 - Entertainer
Night 6 - Believe
Night 7 - Farewell Show

That's what we did as well, Palo on Pirate Night. I also do not dress as a pirate, so wearing a jacket and tie for Palo was a nice change that night. The deck party is always super crowded, and we had a starboard aft balcony, so we watched the fireworks from there and the view was excellent.

This is the normal schedule, but could also change. On our 11/30 Fantasy cruise, the Believe Show and the farewell show (An Unforgettable Journey) were reversed due to technical difficulties encountered during Wishes (which delayed the show at least 20 minutes in the middle of it).
