This is our first cruise and traveling with four children, 13,11,8 and 5. I signed up for the late seating (8:30) as suggested. We were told your too rushed if you do an excursion for the early meal time seating. We were also told dinner can last up to 2hrs so feed our kids first and go to the late seating while the kids are in the kids program. Any suggesions would be helpful.
