Hello,
We are taking the inside passage cruise (vancouver) in July on the Wind. There are two families going and there will be a total of 7 people. My only concern is the "freestyle cruising". Never done it before. I picture long lines of people waiting at various places. Also, with traditional cruises it's not a problem to "book" a table for 7 but I wonder with freestyle cruising if we will run into problems of accomadating both families at one table. Would you please share your experiences with me.
Thank you

You will have problems, as most tables sit six or less. But, there is a very easy solution for waiting in long lines for a large table to become available, and that's to reserve your table ahead of time, even at the main restaurants.

Freestyle Dining means you don't have to, never-the-less, it doesn't mean you can't.

You have the option, and I highly recommend that you do.

Thank you for your input, Ron. I also read some of your (& other's) suggestions on freestyle cruising (on other posts).
I've come to one conclusion and that's plan in advance for our group and make reservations!!!
Thanks again

I have sailed on the Dawn Three years in a row,wehave always been a family of nine each time. Freestyle ding is great especially with little kids. Your best bet is to make a reservation each morning for the place you want to eat at night. They will set up for you in advance. You can make the reservation on your room phone or at the desk
