Hey Y'all! I am taking my first cruise on July 22 with my parents, my daughter, and my brother and sister in law. We are going to the Western Caribbean on RCI Freedom of the Seas. I am currently doing pre-cruise reservations and came to the My Time Dining option. Does anyone know if that is strictly for the main dining room or is that also for the Windjammer Cafe?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated as I am not only making my reservations but also my parents.
You'll never forget your first cruise...you WILL have a wonderful time.
Windjammer is buffet style dining..you eat and sit when and where you want, when its open. They open early for a buffet breakfast...then close briefly for lunch set-up..then there's lunch...they close again for dinner set-up...then dinner.
Food is overall good to very good...but you will also want to eat in the dining room.
FirstSail, welcome to Cruisemates......I sailed the Freedom and loved the ship....I know when you come back, you will have eaten your way all around the ship Please come back and share your thoughts.....nothing like your 1st cruise...I hope you make great memories every day.
Trip, with her book & tea!

My Time Dining only applies to the Main Dining Room. The Windjammer is open seating for all meals and is a "buffet" type option and the there is no real dress code in the Windjammer. You do need shoes, shirts and cover ups over swimsuits.
If you do select My Time Dining you will need to pre-pay your gratuities.
I know you will enjoy all the Freedom of the Seas has to offer and enjoy the cruise. It is a large ship and you will not be bored.
