On all of my cruises i usually always do main dining time but only late dining was available on this cruise. Will it be any different then main dining? Do many people do late dining and will we still have table mates?
No, late dining is usually around midnight and you eat with the staff. Generally they serve you leftovers from the buffett that has been sitting under a heat lamp since noon. They will vacuum the dining room about the time your wilted salad arrives. Enjoy!

It will be pretty much the same. I prefer late over early. Fewer kids.

Always have selected the late dining and the main reason is that on port days you will be able to relax and have a casual drink before dinner and sometimes you will attend the main production show before dinner. Few kids the second seating hooray!
