    That makes sense. When I wasn't able to book Palo brunch a few days ago I wondered why they didn't just have longer hours for Brunch. I wouldn't mind eating earlier and I'm sure plenty of people would be okay with eating later as well. Sacrificing Tea for more Brunch times seems like a good trade-off. If they want to keep Tea, they could do High Tea on port days. Getting back to the ship by 3 or 4 would not be a problem for many passengers.

    I think that is a good idea to extend brunch hours. I also like the idea of may doing the tea on port days.

    Tea has been poorly attended on our last 2 cruises. While I realize that they seat only a limited number of tables, on our last cruise we were one of 3 tables! The server said they didn't know why, but attendance had been down even though the seas were lovely. She said that on rough cruises, almost no one does tea.

    I didn't suggest that the price increase might have contributed.

    Still--allowing more to have brunch makes sense. We liked tea, but at $15 per person it wasn't a good value.

    it makes sense for them to discontinue something that isn't very popular and replace it with an extended brunch...

    however, i'm sad i won't be able to do it on our cruise...
    i was looking forward to trying the tea for the first time..
    i'm very much a tea and scones person, much moreso than brunch...
    oh well...i guess it's brunch for us then :)

    Hopefully they will put some of the goodies in the Cove Cafe.

    Good idea about brunch hours.

    I'm glad they're doing this. It'll make it easier to get a brunch reservation plus it'll open up later dining times for brunch which will work better for us. :goodvibes

    so now that they're going to extend the brunch hours, what time do you think is the ideal time for a palo brunch?

    Oh, how sad! We are going on our second cruise in November and since we missed out on our first (no times available) I was hoping to do it this time... we can do brunch at any number of places where I live but no one does high tea. I looooove doing it in Canada whenever we head north so I thought I would really enjoy it... :headache:

    It's funny about the lack of attendance though ... last year we did High Tea on the Dream and there was only ONE other table ... so a total of 6 people in the restaurant. We thought it was great because we had lots of food, they gave us a big plate to take back to our staterooms and they took pictures of us. :thumbsup2 However, upon returning home, there was a post from someone here on the Dis that was on the same cruise that I was and they said they weren't able to get High Tea ressies onboard as they were told it was full. :confused3

    So maybe something in the ressie system is messing things up. We were only on a 4 night cruise and brunch wasn't coming up at all when any of us tried to book it. I think DH would appreciate the brunch more, so for sure we'll try and secure that for our Fantasy 7 night Eastern next year. :goodvibes
