Yes, both nights. You'll find, however, that the first night is considerably more "relaxed" and "informal" than any other night aboard ship, because they know that some folks, especially at early seating, haven't received their luggage yet, and might have to come to dinner in the clothing they wore, to board the ship in. No problem.
Have a GREAT cruise.
I usually eat in the MDR every night, but I have noticed that when I do skip it is usually the first night.
"Eat well my friend".
