Help please. Grandeur Show times and dinner time decisions...

Recommended Posts

Itinerary:  9 night this summer out of Baltimore to Bermuda, CocoCay, Nassaua

 

We typically eat on the earlier side with My Time Dining, say 5:30 - 6pm, but would like to try dining later to maximize our afternoons at the pool, etc...  We would still like to see the late show for the headliners or Royal's own entertainment.  Anyone know the typical times for the early and late shows on the Grandeur for this type of itinerary?

 

Thank you in advance,

Dan

Shows are typically scheduled based on main (5:30) and late (8:00) seating times.

 

Main seating show is after dinner.

Late seating show can be before or after dinner.

On Grandeur shows are scheduled for early and late seating.  The main shows are all scheduled that way.  If late seating is at 8, shows are usually at 7, early seating at say 6, show for them will be at like 8 or so.  We always do late seating so most shows are before dinner, with an occasional one or two after depending on the show.  My time has to work with what works with their dining time.  If you eat at 530 or 6, you can see the show with the early diners if you eat later, you have to work around timing depending on when you go.  Most of the time, one of the show times will work with your dining time.

There are some variations, but on most nights the shows are at 7 & 9.

Thanks all.  Looks like around 7ish for early show and 8:45-9:45 for the late show.     That later show time still works and we could have dinner around 7 PM which would be just about perfect.

Realize that some nights, there is only one show.  Equally inconvenient for early or late seating.

 

Also, the later show may be a bit more adult oriented, so if you have kids, you may want to hit the early shows.

 

One reason we do MTD.  But eat more often in WJ than the MDR.

Thanks for the advice SRF. 

 

This cruise is without our kids so at least that won't factor in.

Been in Grandeur times to know.....eating at the 5:30 seating, app, entree, desert with cappuccinos still left us time to meander over to the theater and catch the first seating of the shows.  We did cheat a little by sending the kids over first to save us a good seat....but there was still plenty of seats when we got there too.

We had MTD at 6:45 on the nights when there was a show at 9.  Worked fine. When there was only one show it was a little tighter.  One show at 7:00 made a crunch for MTF reservations at 5:30.
