  1. Has anyone experienced the problem of trying to book a Dining Package online through the Cruise Planner for a child at the adult price? We live in Sydney, Australia and are cruising from Brisbane, Australia on Quantum in January 2023 and want to purchase the 3 Night Dining Package through the cruise planner for 2 adults and one child, however we want to pay the adult price for our 12 year old daughter because she wants to be able to order from the normal menu. The Cruise Planner does not provide the option to pay the adult price for a child. The child's price is a lot less because they are only able to choose meals from the Children's Menu and not the normal menu. We have been told that it is possible to pay the adult price for our daughter, however we can only do this when we get onboard the ship. The problem with this is that by waiting and paying onboard we are not entitled to the discount that is offered by paying through the Cruise Planner. This will result in us paying for 2 adults through the Cruise Planner at the discounted rate of $179 AUD and having to pay the onboard non-discounted price of $233 AUD for our daughter which works out at $54 more. Has anyone else experienced this problem and have any suggestions as to how we can avoid paying extra for our daughter. This is an anomaly that Royal Caribbean need to address. There should be an option on the Cruise Planner to enable a child to be paid for at the adult rate so they can choose meals from the normal menu. It would not be hard for Royal Caribbean to do. I'm sure there are a lot of 12 year olds that do not want to eat from the children's menu.
