Default Seating for Breakfast and Lunch?

I guess I pictured going to the Windjammer on RCI for breakfast and lunch. Now I started to think maybe they want people to sit at their assigned tables in the dining room? I know we always have choices but what is the deal for breakfast and lunch?

Normally breakfast and lunch are open seating on the main stream cruise lines.

Just show up and they'll seat you.

OR you can go to the Windjammer, just like you were thinking.

Have fun!

Like Kuki said, breakfast and lunch in the dining rooms are open seating. The breakfast menu is the same for the week but the lunch menus change daily like they do for dinner. This is a great way to meet fellow cruisers. The Windjammer can get crowded and we always ask if we can join others at their table, another way of meeting people.

Breakfast and lunch are open seating. Its a nice change to eat in the dining room for breakfast or lunch, especially if you want something more than basic cafe, buffet type food. Eggs, Omlettes are much better in the dining room.

I have been on three cruises and never ate breakfast or lunch in the DR but plan on it this November. With fall and flu season coming, I figured that it might be safer to eat where everyone is not touching the utensils over and over again. I am glad to hear that the food is better and less crowded.

I never thought about the germ thing but they do show how buffets are bad for that! I appreciate all the experienced cruisers advice. Two more days and I'll see what the crusie experience is all about for myself!
