I would say that we dine mostly in the MDR with a visit to the speciality venues as available (last cruise one was fully booked at times we wanted for the whole 28 nights..no I didn't believe it either!) some more than once if it was good, some never again too. Buffet a couple of times especially P&O's curry nights, sometimes you need to book a table for them! We like to have a slap -up breakfast a couple of times in the MDR but it often closes too early, we have had lunch in the MDR just once, English type roast beef + trimmings on Arcadia coming out of Gibraltar. We enjoy the formal type of dining, by formal I mean the service, hopefully with good company that we look forward to meeting every evening to exchange experiences of our days. Next cruise.. fixed seating lates, same the one after, then back on Azura where we are trying the freedom style.
