Last dec, we did the 5 night enchantment cruise. The first day on board, I went to Chops to make a reservation. We ended up booking for that first night. The hostess said it is less crowded, and more casual, cause not everyone has all there luggage yet. We wore a typical outfit we would wear for the dinner in the dining room. The extra money was worth the wonderful service, and steaks. We bought a bottle of wine, our bill was about $80. Hope this helps.
