Have another question regarding the traditional dining, actually more like a survey. Between the 2 times for dining 6:30 or 8:30 anyone have a preference or pro's or con's for either. I am trying to see which one we would prefer better. Thanks for any input.

It really depends on what you want to do in the evening, and when you want to do it. We like the late seating because it gives us leisure time in the early evening - which means we don't have to rush around at the end of a port day to get ready for dinner, or can linger on the open decks during the sea days while the early seating people all leave to shower and dress.

But, early seating is good for those who wish to get dinner out of the way and can then have the whole evening open to hit all the clubs or the casino. Those with young kids usually opt for early seating, but we found that our son actually is a late eater and so we have been late seating people for the past ten years. We prefer it that way.

Dining times really varies as Dave mentioned.

Personally I always do 2nd seating or personal choice & eat after 8:30pm.

I find that the early seating cuts into your day. Being a sun person I spend all the time I can soaking it up. You'll be amazed how early 6:15 rolls around.

You did not mention your age or if you are travelling with children. But, I do find in general those with small children will have 1st seating, or the older crowd. Of course there is always the group that takes 1st seating so they can eat again later.

Enjoy your cruise.
