I first heard news of big changes to Dynamic Dining tonight on one of the Facebook cruising groups I participate in. Later, I saw the same news on royalcaribbeanblog.com (not the company’s blog) so I’ll repeat it here. There are indications that Royal Caribbean is already making an adjustment to its new Dynamic Dining program which debuted on Quantum of the Seas and move to a “rotational dining” concept. For those not familiar, rotational dining is a concept employed at Disney Cruise Line. You dine in different venues each night, but rotate among the venues along with your same dining staff.
Apparently, this news came from a Royal Caribbean VP while speaking to travel agents aboard a 2-night cruise previewing the recently renovated Freedom of the Seas to travel agents. For the record – I liked Dynamic Dining in concept, and mostly in practice during my December 2014 Quantum of the Seas cruise, and did not experience any excessive waits, crazy lines, or major issues that have been reported on the cruise message boards. I’ll be reaching out for official word from Royal Caribbean, but I’m inclined to believe change is in the air with Dynamic Dining.
