We had no problem making reservation at both Portofino's and Chops while on board the ship on our last cruse.
Keep in mind that RC just began offering everyone the option of booking the specialty restaurants online before you board. This may result in less availability once you board.
However, you can book your reservation online and cancel up to 10 days before the cruise. If you cancel after the 10 day period, you receive a credit to your account - and $20pp isn't too hard to spend elsewhere!
