Dine My Way℠: Food rediscovered on cruises!

Enjoy a world of culinary options at the touch of a button on your next cruise

Dine My Way is all about personalizing your cruise experience. You can choose your dining times for each day, whether you make reservations for the main dining room (which is included in the price) or the specialty restaurants (at a small additional charge). You can dine at the same time each night or change your meal times to suit you.* Once you're on board, you can order food and beverages through OceanNow® to be delivered to you wherever you choose. More options at your fingertips means less waiting and more time to dine to your liking.
*Reservation times are based on the capacity and availability of the venues.

Main Dining Room and Specialty Restaurant Reservations 


The main dining room and specialty restaurant reservation services of the Dine My Way experience are not available to all guests at the time of booking. Please see the specific requirements for use below:


Prior to the cruise, only dinner reservations can be made. 
Onboard guests may make reservations for breakfast and lunch.

Elite and Platinum guests will have access to reservations for the main dining room and specialty restaurants as part of Dine My Way ( no full payment required) at the time of booking.

Elite and Platinum guests also have the option to reserve the main dining room for other members of their travel group (Travel Party). A travel party is a group of people with whom the guest is traveling. This travel group can only be specified prior to travel through The Princess® Cruises App.

Guests who are not Elite or Platinum Members will be granted access to reservations for the main dining room and specialty restaurants in Dine My Way upon full payment of their reservation.  

Upon full payment, guests will also have the ability to make meal reservations for other members of their travel party. 




What happens when I select Anytime Dining?

I selected Anytime Dining.
What will be the dining time?
Guests who have selected Anytime Dining will not be assigned a specific time.  Once Dine My Way becomes active, you can log in (depending on access) and either create a trip length plan or book different times for different days. 


You are traveling with a group?

Yes, I am traveling with a group.
- Will we all get the same meal time?
We automatically transfer all existing restaurant and specialty dining reservations into the app and try to accommodate your original request as much as possible. You can select travel companions in The Princess® Cruises App to coordinate dining together.
- We don't want separate times. How can you change that?
If you would like changes, you can adjust your Dine My Way selections accordingly if you are a Platinum/Elite member or after your cruise has been paid in full.

Is a reservation required for the buffet?

Is a reservation required for the buffet? Does this also apply to breakfast, lunch and dinner?
The buffet is operated like a restaurant. Guests can make reservations for some areas of the buffet via The Princess® Cruises App . Guests will see available buffet seating inThe Princess® Cruises App, similar to making a reservation for the main restaurant i.e. for each available time slot they can choose between the main restaurant and/or the buffet. Guests will be notified via The Princess® Cruises App in the same manner as they would for a main dining room reservation.

Do Club Class guests need to make a reservation for the main dining room?

No, Club Class guests will be notified via the app of their dining room and general times available. We assume that Club Class guests will not want to make reservations - they will be manually met at the dining room door.
