Princess Cruises Rolls Out Fleetwide Dining Enhancements

Princess Cruises says it is making a “significant enhancement” to the main dining options found across its fleet. The new options will give guests “the ultimate in flexibility and choice” when it comes to their dining experience.

Princess Cruises is now offering three table service options: Traditional, Reservable, or Walk-in Anytime, coupled with the brand’s industry-exclusive OceanNow location-based “anywhere” service.

The cruise line will designate separate dining rooms aboard every ship in the fleet* to the three table service options:

  • One dedicated to traditional dining offering early and late seating every evening
  • One offering reservable dining times, and
  • A third with open seating to support walk-ins anytime

The three table service options integrate with the line’s unparalleled OceanNow, which provides guests the convenience of ordering anything, anytime, and receiving it anywhere onboard.

The new approach is now available aboard Sun Princess. All dining formats will soon be available fleetwide.

Sami Kohen, Princess Cruises Vice President of Food and Beverage said:

“Our guests have been delighted with the dining flexibility aboard Sun Princess and we’re pleased to extend the concept to all the other ships in our fleet.

“Now whether guests prefer an early seating every evening, or change things up every night, or even change their mind, these flexible dining options ensure that their dining preference is effortlessly accommodated.”

Starting on April 15, 2024, the new approach will launch on Princess voyages departing September 14, 2024 and beyond.

To support these changes and the transition to the new system, main dining reservations that already have been made for voyages sailing September 14 and beyond for any ship except Sun Princess will be cancelled.

Main dining reservations for guests sailing through September 13 will not be affected. 

Starting June 17, booked guests will be able to use the app ahead of their voyage to opt for traditional seating in a dedicated dining room with the same waiter, same table and same time each night.

Guests can also opt for flexible dining, allowing them to enjoy dinner at any available time and table size of their choosing in either the Reservable or Open Seating dining rooms.

This change does not affect guests booked in speciality dining restaurants or suite or reserve collection accommodations, who enjoy a dedicated dining room on Princess ships, where no reservations are required.

* Reservable and Walk-in Anytime Dining will be combined into a single Main Dining Room location aboard Coral Princess and Island Princess.
