Dave is absolutely right... If you have an early seating you are going to be attending the later show. If you have the late seating dinner, you are to attend the early show. Carnival and Royal Caribbean have adopted that time structure. Usually, if a comedian is on board, they will also offer a much later "adults only" show. (profanity and sexual references)

I figured that was the case but I had read on another feed sometime back someone saying that due to the time of their dinner seating they were unable to make the shows. We are booked for the 8pm so hopefully we will be able to do the early show and be out in time for our seating. I do like to attend all the shows....good or bad!

Well, after the fifth Carnival "special" drink of the day and your fourth warm melting chocolate dessert, do not expect them to hold the show up for you. (No, this is not from.... errrr.... experience) O.K. so they could have help it up just a few minutes longer. Anyways, you should have no problem attending any of the shows.

Dave, I was going by always having dinner first. I am looking at one from Elation last year and it says Main Show Rhythm Mikado Lounge 8:45pm Early Seating and 10:30pm Late Seating. I have just never seen the other like you posted. Thanks for the enlightenment. What I was trying to say is if one had the early Dinner they would not be able to go a show first. I learn something new all the time. Is this just on certain ships, or is it going to on all now? Thanks

I have no idea what you are saying.


This is not rocket science, Have dinner early, attend a late show, (mind you while the late dinner is eating.) You can't be at the show and dinner at the same time. They coincide, meals and show happening at the same time.

Thank you for setting things straight, Ken. I use to understand all this until I read this thread.

On HAL it was real simple; dinner at 6:00? Show at 8:15;
dinner at 8:00? Show at 10:15.

Unless you dwell in some alternate reality, that should be easy enough to grasp.

So, let me get this straight. I can eat early, and catch a show after dinner? Or, should I catch a show first, and eat dinner later? Or should I catch my dinner and eat a show?

The latter. Drive for show, putt for dough.

That has always been my experience too on CCL. I think from this thread they have changed it.

I don't like it. I like going to dinner late and a late show after. This is going to mess up my nap time between Happy Hour and Dinner!
