Default dining question

Hey, can anyone tell me if I am on the waiting list for the main dining seating what are my chances of actually getting on that seating time? I am traveling with my young son and mother and we prefer main seating but got the second seating and put on a waiting list. Thanks for any information. We are sailing on VOS 03/12/05.

Slim but you can try to change that with the maitre d on board.

A lot also depends upon where you are on the waitlist. If you are say number 2, you might have a good chance, but if you are number 312, your chances are slim to none. Try late seating,you might like it. The key to late seating is to eat something light like a sandwich or salad in the late afternoon and take a nap after sightseeing and being out in the sun all day long. If you try it and find that you do not like it, see the Maitre D and see if any table are open for early seating.

Go and see the maitre d right away when you get on board and they will try and accomodate you the best they can. I changed a few times and had no problems. I agree with LisaK try it you might like it. At home I am usually in bed by 10:00 but I find with an afternoon nap on some days I stay up a lot later. We have done both times and we actually prefer the late seating.
