Royal Caribbean International is postponing the scheduled introduction of Dynamic Dining on its two mega-ships, Oasis and Allure of the Seas.
The alternative-dining concept had been scheduled to debut on Oasis in March, but has now been put off until “later in the year” according to the line’s web page for Oasis.
Dynamic Dining, introduced on Quantum of the Seas in November, eliminates the main dining room in favor of four themed restaurants that serve about 450 diners each. There is also a separate complimentary restaurant for suite guests.
The main dining room on Oasis had been converted into separate restaurants on each of its three decks during a drydock last fall, but the actual implementation of Dynamic Dining is not yet in place.
The three new dining concepts for Oasis were to be American Icon Grill, Silk and The Grande.
Royal Caribbean said it will continue to offer early and late seatings in the main dining room on Oasis as well as the flexible My Time Dining program as an option.
Allure of the Seas is scheduled for a drydock in 2015.
