As Gary D. said, you can do what you want. It's your vacation, if you choose to order room service or maybe try one of the specialty restaurants you can, no worries. My husband did NOT want to eat with strangers, wereas I will talk to anyone, but on our last cruise he had a really good time. Two of our table mates were from Germany, didn't really speak much english and the other two were from England. We have a great time with all of them. When we booked our next cruise they asked us if we wanted a small intimate table or a large table and he said LARGE! Go figure, whatever you decide to do for dinner will be fine and you are about to experience the BEST vacation you've ever had... just my opinion. Have a great time.
