Royal Caribbean launches online dining reservations
MIAMI, February 16, 2010 - Royal Caribbean International today announced Daily Reservations, an online reservation system for guests enrolled in the My Time Dining program. Through Daily Reservations, My Time Dining guests can make nightly reservations in the main dining room for themselves, as well as include other guests at their table. Guests can access, request, and review their Daily Reservations in advance of their sailing through the Pre-Cruise Planner or Cruise Enhancements section of RoyalCaribbean.com. Daily Reservations is currently available for Oasis of the Seas sailings, and will be deployed fleetwide throughout spring 2010. More information can be found at www.RoyalCaribbean.com/MyTimeDining.
“Royal Caribbean continuously explores new ways to leverage the power of technology to deliver the Royal treatment to our guests,” said Lisa Bauer, senior vice president of Hotel Operations, Royal Caribbean International. “Daily Reservations offers guests greater convenience when it comes to enjoying all of Royal Caribbean’s wide variety of dining options and renowned service. My Time Dining guests should take advantage of Daily Reservations to give them complete flexibility as they plan their evenings, particularly for the first few nights onboard.”
Guests selecting My Time Dining can make main dining room reservation requests for each evening of their cruise via RoyalCaribbean.com and reserve their dining times under Daily Reservations in the Pre-Cruise Planner or Cruise Enhancements section. Dinner reservations can be requested for an intimate table for two or a larger table accommodating up to a total of 10. Guests can request reservations for the same time with the same people nightly or a different time every evening with different companions. If a particular time is unavailable, Daily Reservations will suggest an alternative time that is closest to the request. Guests will then be able to review their daily dinner reservation details in an easy-to-navigate calendar view, as well as request changes for their dinner reservations through RoyalCaribbean.com.
My Time Dining provides guests with the flexibility to enjoy dinner in the main dining room whenever they wish during dining hours. Guests choosing My Time Dining will not have a preassigned table, but will be seated in the ship’s main dining room; order from the same dinner menu; and enjoy the same impeccable Royal treatment for which Royal Caribbean is known. To ensure a smooth and undisrupted experience, no additional guests will be seated at a table once dinner service has begun. Guests choosing My Time Dining must prepay gratuities and enroll in advance through www.RoyalCaribbean.com, their travel agent, or the cruise line’s reservations department.
Among the 24 dining options that Oasis of the Seas offers, guests also can make dinner reservations in four of the ship’s specialty restaurants, including Royal Caribbean’s signature Chops Grille steakhouse. Oasis of the Seas also exclusively features new specialty dining concepts that require reservations, such as Italian family-style dining in Giovanni’s Table, exciting healthier fare in the Solarium Bistro, or the sophisticated dining experience of 150 Central Park. Other select Royal Caribbean ships offer the cruise line’s signature Portofino Italian restaurant.
Royal Caribbean International is a global cruise brand with 21 ships currently in service and one under construction. The line also offers unique cruise tour land packages in Alaska, Canada, Dubai, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand.
