Default dining times on Zuiderdam

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what time the dinner seatings are. We are assigned early, but we prefer late. I was wondering how early is early on the Zuiderdam.
We don't leave port until 7:00pm at one port. So a later seating would definitly be better in that case.
many thanks

How do you know what dining time you have? We never find out till we check in.

Shantel, this is straight from HAL's website:

Although Holland America offers open seating for breakfast and lunch, there are four sittings for dinner on our ships. * Dinner times are 5:45 pm (First Upper), 6:15 pm (First Lower), 8:00 pm (Main Upper) and 8:30 pm (Main Lower). For all Alaska cruises, dinner times are 5:30 pm (Early Upper), 6:00 pm (Early Lower), 7:45 pm (Main Upper) and 8:15 pm (Main Lower). You may request any sitting time, table size and with whom you wish to sit. All such requests should be made in advance of sailing through your travel agent. Requests will be confirmed or waitlisted at the time of booking.

Hmmm, in the booklet marked travel documents, the contract portion says
confirmed: early dining
waitlist dining: request main
so I guess we just ask the mait'trd (sp) and hope he can fit us somewhere? or like the 2nd poster said wait til they tell me?
Anyway thanks for the input, I didn't think to look on their website, how dumb am i? I just seach the stuff you guys put on the boards and ask if I can't find it. I have always found the answers with your help.
Thanks again.
