I'm confused. On Dream you have the choice of early or late traditional dining.. and its in the same dining room. How is this not two sittings? I did the Magic not Dream, but they are sister ships and we had two sittings.
I lean toward RCL and dont consider myself a traitor. I get free wine nightly on RCL and not on Carnival .. but I can drive to Carnival which is great and how I got to be platinum on Carnival. I call it platinum by accident, not that I was trying to get there. Carnival just had the cruises out of the port I wanted at the right price. RCL deserted us Texans and only has them in the winter. I petitioned them to consider bringing back year round.. oh well.
I find the food on both similar .. as in I get enough of both and neither are outstanding enough to comment on.
