I personally don't think this new dining option is going to fly. Why do people need so many options? Think of all the years that cruisers had two choices-early or late seating in the dining room. That was it. It's nice that they added the alternative casual for those who were late getting back to ship or didn't feel like getting all gussied up for formal night. Then they added specialty dining which we've never tried. If I'm reading this latest news release correctly,then passengers can make reservations as late as 9 p.m.? Will they have yet another shift for the already overworked waiters?
Cruise lines appear to all have the "keeping-up-with-the-Jones" mentality.
I'm sure this new dining option isn't because die hard Celebrity passengers want it-it's simply to attract new customers from other lines, particularily NCL with their 24/7 dine wherever whoever whatever thingy. IMHO, this takes away from Celebrity's cut-above reputation. Time will tell
