CA... I can't recall which line or ship I was checking out online, but as I checked I found , as u, that both early and late dining were "sold out" or "not available". It gave me a bit of a chuckle, as I wondered about having dinners in a lifeboat.
Since actual seating arrangements are done onboard, they likely slot people into each seating, and then review requests for changes as they do the actual seating placement process.
I'd bet you'll have little trouble getting the seating you want... just may have to go through the time eating process of seeing the Maitre D.
i don't know about being oversold, but they have only cs and penthouse suites available, i inquired about moving up to better outside with balcony, and had one cabin on hold for 24 hours. we are staying where we are...how can the dining be oversold???
CA, i'm looking forward to finding you onboard...19 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes til departure for millie...YAHOO!!!!
