Royal Caribbean Steps Back from "Dynamic Dining"


With Dynamic Dining producing more glitches than beneifts, Royal has a new plan ...

Posted by: ucv

Royal Caribbean is taking a decided step back from their new "Dynamic Dining." Unveiled on the new Quantum of the Seas, it eliminated two fixed seating's in large dining rooms in place of an innovative system that introduced four smaller, themed restaurants, for which guests could make advance reservations or simply walk in. It did not work as Royal had hoped.

Dynamic Dining was created to bring more complimentary dining options to guests, along with flexible schedules. However glitches befell the new system such as dropped reservations, long lines and missed shows. Royal could have learned from Norwegian Cruise Line who pioneered flexible dining. Through their own growing pains Norwegian now champions Freestyle Dining. Norwegian implemented electronic screens around the ship that display restaurant availability describing them as either "full," "short wait," "filling up," or "empty." This system keeps hungry diners flowing instead of congregating.

Instead, beginning in April with the launch of Quantum's sister ship, Anthem of the Seas, Royal will introduce "Classic" dining, borrowing a page from Disney Cruise Line. Classic will combine the elements of traditional dining with the ability to dine at a different venue each evening.

Diners will be allowed to request early or late seating as always, as their choice throughout the cruise. These guests will rotate nightly through each of the four complimentary dining rooms, attended by the same wait staff each night. They will dine at the exact same table each night, but in a different dining room. In addition, Royal has removed the cost to dine at Devinly Decadence, adding an additional complimentary option to the table.

As a result of the glitches Royal has postponed the scheduled spring roll-out of the Dynamic Dining concept to two of its biggest ships, the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas. Implementation will be delayed until later in the year according to Royal.

At ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION we encourage guests of these ships to make reservations in advance for at least the majority of their nights onboard.
