    I note that some of the long standing members think they *own* this site. They do not and they are cyber bullies who pick on newbies. I am going on a cruise and I can frequent here whether you like it or not. Long standing member does not instantly command respect.

    Lets hope you learn some respect before you go on your cruise or you may find yourself put ashore at the next port

    In the past we have always opted for early sittings, mainly because the children were very young when we started cruising.

    This time we decided to try mytime dining on IOTS, and I think that, despite the very big positive point of the flexibility to choose the time we ate, we prefer an early or late sitting for the following reasons.

    I really missed having table companions and the great chats we would have at the end of the day, talking about what we'd done, things we'd seen, funny stories, and ship gossip.

    I also missed getting to know our waiters, and them getting to know our personal likes and dislikes at the table. That is not to say that the waiters we met on mytime dining were not attentive at all, but we only met them for a couple of hours.

    I think that it is worth the inconvenience of being tied to a given time, and to choose early or late sittings.

    What do others think?
    We prefer the (anytime dinning) as we call it. This type of dinning does not mean you have to have different waiters every night. If we like a particular waiter or waiters we ask can we be seated at their tables. Also you meet many different people at your evening meals. It works very well for us. Some times being seated at the same table every night could present a problem if you happen not to gel with your table companions (this does happen).

    We have always done set time and enjoyed it too,being led to the same table to enjoy our mixing with other passengers.
    The last Cruise we did was last Aug on the Oasis of the seas with all our family,our daughter got married and we had 4 grandchildren with us all on a huge table togeather.
    We pre-booked the shows too so it was not too late for the kiddies....and our waiters were excellent,and they made a huge fuss of the little ones.
    I remember our first cruise we ate at the second sitting,allthough it was nice....eating and still eating untill around 9-10pm was far too late ,all we wanted to do was sleep.For our next 3 we are booked for first dining with a large table in the hope we meet some nice people and enjoy their company,as I am sure we will.

    some call me Mrs Early Bird......:p

    both have their good and bad points.

    I like traditional dining and getting to know fellow passengers and the waiters but do not like the times 6.15pm or 8.30pm. one is too early and the other too late.

    I have tried 'my time dining' and 'select dining' on RCI and Celebrity. we were able to have the same great waiters every night on RCI but not on Celebrity but found all the waiters professional and all very different. I like choosing when I want to eat. we were seated at the times we had pre booked.

    don't want to work, just want to cruise.
