Both main and late seating have advantages and disadvantages. Main seating for dinner is usually 6:00 PM, and late at 8:30 PM. What time do you usually eat dinner?
Some people like late better because they don't have to rush back onboard from the ports, and they have time to shower and change and have a cocktail before dinner. However, sometimes the main show in the show lounge is before dinner for those in late seating. Late seating diners may not get out of the dining room until 10 PM or later, which cuts down on the amount of time left to enjoy evening activities.
Food is the same for both seatings, except for the rare occasions when they may run out of something before late seating. Some folks feel like the service in main seating is a tad rushed, such that everyone finishes in time for the waiters to prepare the dining room for late seating.
