My husband and I never thought we would enjoy Personal Choice dining, but after trying it, we do like it in certain circumstances. If it is just the 2 of us cruising, we will pick Traditional Seating specifically to meet people. If we are traveling with another couple or group, we prefer the freedom of changing the dinner time depending on how things went during the day. In addition, there is nothing worse than being assigned early seating and missing every Sailaway. (And late seating is too late for us.) With Personal Choice you can enjoy every sailway with a cocktail and amble down to dinner anytime you want.
