Dining Question

I'm sure this has been asked before so I apologize if I'm repeating but I had a question regarding which night to book Palo on my upcoming 4 night Bahamian cruise on the Dream. I had originally booked it for our at sea day but upon doing some reading I realized the rotation is usually something like RAAE so I would be missing a MDR. Am I better off to book for the second or third night? I'm still missing either a regular menu for whichever MDR we get in the middle of the rotation or pirate night. Would love to hear some opinions on the matter!

That was my rotation in February. I usually like Palo for the first night, so that's when I booked it, not realizing I'd miss Royal Palace - not my favorite, but I like it lightyears better than Enchanted Garden. I'm very weird on here in that I LOVE Animator's Palate and I liked the Pirate Night menu.

I think most people on here will tell you to go for the third night in Palo and skip the Pirate menu regardless of your dining rotation.

The Main Dining Room that's repeated will be the one that you are in for Pirate night. So one night would be the Pirate menu and the other night would be that MDRs Signature menu.

I'd suggest having a look at the menus, and making the decision as to which you don't mind missing out on. Although you won't know specifically which MDR you will be in those two nights as you won't get your actual rotation until you check in at the port.

So, you basically have to make a blind choice.

But, if you want to have a look at the menus, you can see them here:
