¿Cómo saber si los restaurantes tienen disponibilidad en los barcos donde no hay turnos fijos de comida?

Hay varias opciones, incluyendo pasar por el restaurant a la hora que quieres comer y registrarte al frente. Ellos te darán un “pager” o aparato electrónico que te avisa cuando tu mesa está lista. Por lo regular la espera no es mucha.

Muchos barcos tienen pizarras electrónicas, donde puedes ver disponibilidad.

Una buena alternativa es no ir a la hora que los abren, tienden a estar más llenos, si no en horas intermedias.
