Default Late Seating, have things changed?

As many here know, we were just on the 12-22 sailing of the Zenith through South America. We had late seating which turned out to be 9:15 every night. I enjoy dining on the late side, so it doesn't bother me.

I have recently heard and read about a few other ships with later-than-normal "late seating" times. Is this a trend in the industry, or is it just a few flukish cruise itineraries?
I'm just curious...

I would hope it isn't the norm. I'd be asleep before the meal was done if I dined that late. We always take early but if late becomes that late it may be more difficult to get early since more will want to eat at a reasonable time. I would think that this would make something like Personal Choice on Princess would be a good thing.

I wouldn't like dining that late in the least bit. We used to get late seating (around 8:00) and found it absolutely impossible to stay awake during the show. The late night comedy show was always out of the question. We started dining early and napping afterwards and the late show was always much better and we enjoyed dancing in the disco until the wee hours.

Regards,
Thomas

Hi, Chuck ...

Could it have been, I wonder, because of shore excursions?

I think the lateness of the second seating may have been due to the itinerary. When we sailed out of Aruba a few years ago, there were a lot of South Americans on board, and our seating was at 9. We were told it was because South Americans dine later than North Americans, and 9 was the norm there. Haven't seen that time since then, so it may be just the itinerary.
