Default Offer a 7:30 Dinner seating

6:00/6:30 (main) is too early as it makes one rush back from port activities and miss the sail away.
8:30/8:45 (second) is too late for many of us Americans

7:30 would be great (possibly as a third choice). That would give one enough time to return from the day at port, shower, and make it to the dining room.

That would be great, but everyone would want that dining time. Also you wouldn't be able to get everyone in and out of the dining room in time for 3 seatings. It just isn't do-able.

RCCL European sailings have 2 seatings, each with 2 times for a total of 4 different dinner times. There is 6 and 6:30 main, then 8:45 and 9:15 second seating.

9:15pm??? Good grief! You'd be done eating at 11 at night That worked fine for me in Spain 4 years ago, but now......I'm SO not into eating a full dinner that late. In fact, the "dinners" in Spain are very light and more like lunch.

I think 2 main dining rooms each with 2 seatings and 1 of those should be the 7:30-ish time frame. Definitley good suggestion in my opinion.

NCL and Princess have this option for you.

NCL has freestyle dining and you can reserve a table eack night for 7:30 if you wish.

Also on Princess many of the ships offer smart causal bewtwen the hours of 5:30 and 10:00.

So I think you might already have it but not on all curiselines.
