OTOH there might be a night when you want early dinner and the early show and off to bed so you can be up at 5 AM to watch the entry into Glacier Bay where whales are often encountered.

As far as the Sabatini's menu ... the waiter will say, "Just pick out your entree. We will bring you ALL the rest!" It is basically a tasting menu with a small serving of everything on the menu. We have never done lunch there but it should be fun too. The only thing is you will be busy on port days, and on sea days it will book up fast.

Have a GREAT cruise!
Oh, I see! Thanks!

I have only cruised with Carnival before, and there was no "anytime" dining. If I change to that, where do they seat you? Are you seated with another group that comes at the same time, or alone? Someone I work with told me they got a private table each night with "anytime".

We enjoy meeting new people, but would rather see the same faces each night. (assuming we like them and vice versa)
