Just think about how much trouble we experience now just getting our choice of seatings. Now they will have to factor in a third option and apparently you have to pick this new option when you make your cruise reservation and stick with it. Under the old system, by the time you boarded the Maitre'd had pretty much made all of the table assignments, with only a little fine tuning done during the first day or two as a few passengers might ask to have their table or seating assignment changed. Now they will have to set up a daily reservation system to handle passengers who might want to vary their dining times and seating configurations daily. There will be a learning curve involved, so beware if you are on one of the early cruises employing this new system.
