    A question for those recently on the 4 night Dream. Since there is 3 dining locations I am assuming you will have 2 nights at your 1st location - is this correct?

    For example:
    1st night - Animator's Palate
    2nd night - Enchanted Garden
    3rd Night - Royal Palace
    4th night - Animator's Palate

    Is this correct? If yes, I have another question (using the same example above), if the 3rd night is Pirate Night (with the pirate menu) does that mean that we will not have the Royal Palace menu? and have the Animator's Palate menu twice?

    Just trying to plan ahead and decide on my night for Palo's.
    Thanks for you help

    For us the 3rd and 4th night were the same dining room. 3rd night was Pirate so that had its special menu. 4th night was the regular menu.

    When we were on the Dream last month, we got AP as our first night assignment, however, that wasn't the rotation. We had

    AP
    EC
    RP
    RP

    So, they had us in RP the last two nights. We didn't do EC as that was our Palo night, and I'm not a fan of that dining venue. I was hoping for last night in as we had two nights in AP on Fantasy and the second night was the best, where we got to draw, but it was RP for us.

    We had AERR. Third night was pirate night. It was weird having pirate night in such a formal setting.

    The "suggested attire" is ship wide--it does not depend on your rotation.

    The usual rotation is 1-2-3-3 where 1, 2, and 3 are the restaurants. Night 3 is usually pirate night. The suggested attire is usually Cruise Casual, Dress up optional, cruise casual/pirate, cruise casual. EVERYTHING is always subject to change.

    The rotation is A-E-R, with a repeat of whatever number 3 is....so you could have
    AERR
    ERAA
    or
    RAEE based on where you start.

    Our rotation was AERR, but our useless server insisted we needed to return to the Enchanted Garden third night dispite me pulling out my dining card showing him the rotation. So yeah, after talking with the front desk it is always a repeat on the third and forth night.

    As a side note, if you like your server the first night but the Head Server politely asks if you can do another family a favor by moving tables so they can be near the rest of their party, just say NO! This happened to us and turns out the server at our new table was absolutely terrible, I don't think I ever had worse service at any restaurant. I think they really moved us because the other table complained.

    I have a question about the dining also. People have mentioned that the 3rd and 4th night are repeated, but is the case when doing itinerary B? For some reason, our cruise has the day at sea in the middle. I just want to make sure we have Palo on one of the repeated nights. My other question is can you request a rotation if you are staying concierge? :confused3 I thought I read on here somewhere that was possible, but it could be wishful thinking on my part.

    Yes, concierge guests can request a rotation and will get it. And the concierge holds some ressies, so after boarding if you don't like the way your situation lines up, talk to the concierge. They will move whatever you want so that you have Palo, Remy, or anything else lined up with the dining rotation on the night you wish.
