It would be neat if someone from here was going to be on Triumph, Western Carribean 5/14-5/21.

I have a seating question. Triumph offers 4 seatings. With the long day at Cozumel and 2 shorter days (ending at 4:30) at Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman, which dinner seating is best?

I think we are in the 5:xx seating at the suggestion of our travel agent.

I am curious of your thoughts and experiences with different seating times and how they enable or make difficult getting to shows, etc.

Thanks!!!
Lyle

I always prefer the latest seating available. I like to experience the day turn into evening and then take my time getting ready for a social period before dinner. I am not much on shows, so this works great for me.

Jut my opinion.

My husband and I always eat early at home, but on a cruise we choose late seating. We're pretty active, and make the most of our days in port, and the last thing we want to do is rush back to the ship to shower and change for dinner, we do enough rushing at home!

If you find you hate your dining time, ask the maitre d' if he can move you to a different time. If it's just the two of you, it is sometimes possible, and it's always worth a try.

I'm hypoglycemic and really get shaky if I wait to late to eat. I like the early seating but I think 5 Something would be TOO early. That's just my opinion though. We do enjoy the shows so it works great for us.

My digestive system really doesn't like going to bed on a really full stomach. Therefore I usually choose eating earlier. I haven't usually had too much trouble getting to the shows. If we are in port for a long day, we may just eat in the buffet for dinner, to allow ourselves more time off the ship. With Carnival you have the choice of 4 seatings, which may help.

I think I will leave it for now- you all make great points though! I did not see a place to change the option on carnival.com - does anyone know that it exists and I missed it?

Thanks!

Did you book directly with Carnival? If you did, then just call them with your booking number and make the request for dinner, if you booked with an online agency, then go back to the sight and try to find a customer service number and make the request with them. If you can't get in touch with them, you can try calling Carnival directly and asking for help on your reservation.
