Susie

I would take the earlier time. My kids are 19, 15, 12 and 10 and we've found the late seating is just a little too late for the 10 & 12 year old. We found by the time we finished dinner when we had the late seating it was 9:30-10:00 p.m.. If we were getting up to do an early excursion we felt like we just finished dinner and it was time for bed.

early.. there are usually some activities ( if ur child decides to do them) after the early dining.. if u choose the late dining your children might be missing out on activities!

WE always opt for the "early" even with or without kids...It just works for us, most of the time you are leaving ports around 5:00 anyway, so it has not been a problem to get dressed and ready for a 6:30 dinner, then you have time after dinner for the shows, gambling, etc....works for us.

Always the earlier time -- there is so much to do, they will be exhausted and mine have been known to pass out during dinner -- even the early seating!

Enjoy!
