I just read on this website's News that Carnival is initiating a new flexible
dining program beginning with the Imagination, and fleet-wide by 2001. By
offering FOUR sittings, passengers will only have 45 MINUTES to eat their
meals!! In my opinion, that is outrageously a short time to eat! Talk about being
rushed! I am very unhappy about this! How do other fans of Carnival feel about
this????!!!!! This is crazy-- whatever happened to the pleasure and fun of
leisurely dining and enjoying our tablemates and the food? Will this also be the
end of the dining staff's sense of fun in their "mini-shows"??
