I am so glad that I am reading this because my first cruise was a Princess cruise. I chose anytime dining and I love to see the shows. However, it did seem to me that I couldnt quite get my timing down between eating and the shows. I thought it was me. I am cruising again next month on Princess and one of the mental notes I made to myself was to better coordinate dinner and shows. Anyone have any tips on this? I generally like to eat later rather than earlier.
