I think you could be right about traditional dining times going away in the future as the older generation starts cruising less and less. Along with the not wanting to get dressed up on formal night, the younger generation appears to want a more relaxed atmosphere while on a cruise. And since more and more cruise lines are requiring either pre-paid gratuities or automatically charging them to your account, this also does away with providing gratuities in cash like we use to in the past.

So, for better or worse, I tend to agree that the times, they are a changing.
