We did anytime dining and it worked out a lot better than we thought. We made reservations the first day when we boarded and asked for a window seat. We arrived at the specific time 5:30. We liked our table and waiter so every day we made reservations for the next night asking for table #__ and so had it all week...except for one night we had a late port day....Also, eating at 5:30 we finished just in time to make it to the 7pm shows!
If you make reservations for same time/table it defeats the purpose of "ANYTIME DINING"
We prefer to eat when we are hungry so times vary with the port or other activities of the day. We prefer not to be locked into a time slot to eat.
