And this is the Queen's Grill Dining Room - your table is yours - you can arrive when you wish for dinner between 7pm and 9pm - no set times for those who book Grill accommodates - a very nice perk.

No really, those are great pictures!

Great thread!

Can anyone tell me the difference between an obstructed view balcony and an in hull balcony? Or are they one in the same? And how obstructed is it?

This is in an "in hull" balcony cabin. It's very private and you're very protected from wind and sun.

The obstructed are pretty obstructed with views of the lifeboats, unfortunately, I don't think I have any photos of that type of cabin, I never booked one.

Thanks Nick! The in hull balcony looks like a better choice. I did find a picture on cruisestateroom.com of the obstructed view, and it looks really obstructed.

You're welcome! And, yes, the only time an obstructed view isn't a huge deal is if you're taking a transatlantic.

OK, my turn... Can someone explain the Kings Court dining area? Is it open for lunch and dinner? Is this a casual alternative or is formal attire required here in the evenings as well?

King's Court - unique to say the least. During Breakfast and Lunch time it's your normal buffet area just like you have on any other cruise ship. Dinner time it transforms into 4 different restaurants. You can dress down compared to the dress code for the evening for the dining rooms but, reservations are required.

Dinner Time in King's Court:

Lotus - Asian Fusion
The Carvey - Carved meats
Piazza - Italian
The Chef's Galley (my favorite) has an open kitchen where you watch your meal be prepared in front of you

I should add that after dinner, King's Court is transformed again and late night snacks through the wee hours of the morning are available.

The alternative restaurant on-board is Todd English and that is open for both lunch and dinner. I believe Tina and Nina are making arrangements for at least one group dinner for us there. The food is utterly outstanding.

Also, I want to add that at lunch time you might want to try the Golden Lion Pub they serve traditional pub food such as Fish and Chips and it's very good!

Thank you, they all sound good! What is the reservation process? Do you pick possible days/times and book on the first night, or do reservations open up each morning for that evening?

Also, I'm still kind of confused by the dress code... since I read that the dress code is expected to be maintained throughout the evening. So, if we chose to go to Kings Court, let's just say Lotus for dinner on a formal night and DH wore a sport jacket and I wore dress pant outfit, is that appropriate for the evening?

Iv also read that The Chef's Galley is about a 3 hour dinner, be prepared to go for awhile. Sounds intriguing.
