I drift into the dining room on embarkation day to scope out my table number and location.
Good idea. I'll do this on my next cruise.

I agree with breakfast on the balcony; I think that is what has sold us on only this option for our cabins. Plus, I am a before sunrise person and my wife enjoys a little longer slumber so I can be outside enjoying the views, etc.

I don't have a balcony so I'll just head to the WJ.

We are leaving on the Radiance in early November. We opted to do the Preferred Dining or Open Dining so we could eat whenever our schedule allowed. Was that a good choice? Should we change. Will we have to wait to be seated? Thanks for your advice in advance. It's been a while since our last cruise.

Tigermom,
If the open dining meets your needs better than it was the right choice for you. Whether you have to wait to be seated will depend on how busy the dining room is at the time you arrive and if you want a table by yourself and or want to share. Peak dining times will be busier.

It'll be like it is for breakfast or lunch and will depend on whether you want a table to yourself or are willing to share.

I'll be doing the regular dining.

Our first cruise we traveled in a large group and had a long row of inside cabins. Two of the ladies were elderly and in the morning they got room service breakfast. They propped their door open and sat on their beds eating in their robes. As the rest of us went by to the various dining locations we called greatings to them and they seemed to find this a delightful time of connection for them. I think strangers going by greeted them as well!

Do it all! Room service for breakfast is heavenly...that knock at the door, sitting on the verandah. You can also write in any items that they don't have listed.

Lunch in the dining room is a nice change of pace...sitting with new people can be nice but we find the small talk to be a chore sometimes. (We are in the hospitality industry so we go on vacation to be alone!)

Many times, we are by the pool and we bring food out from the windjammer. On the larger ships there is also the cafe where they have some great unusual sandwiches.

Johnny Rockets is also a great choice...although you may have to wait for a table...great cheese fries!

Mix it up and try it all!

By the way, we have had issues the last 3 cruises with our tables. We always check on the location, etc. on the first day. Last year, we had requested a table for 2 and they put us with this couple...let's just say the guy had issues! They were eventually moved to a table with their family but we always book our cruise a year in advance...so what else can we do to get a private table?
