We just booked on the Sea for May. I was just reading about the nightmares of open seating on the Dawn. Can anyone alleviate our fears of having to wait 45 minutes to be seated for dinner. Are there plenty of tables for 2?
My wife and I have been on the Sea twice. We always had a table for two. We waited once for 10 minutes. I love freestye, its the only way to go. When your at port, you dont have to rush back to make your seating. You can eat anytime you want.
Four of us took the Sea at end of Jan.
No problems whatsoever in getting seated. Usually no waits at all, longest was about 10 minutes (I think that was for breakfast on the final morning).
Don't remember seeing a lot of tables for two. Usually four, six or eight. Bigger tables are good because you get to meet new people every meal.
If you're firm on a table for two, you may well have to wait a while.
Freestyle cruising turned out to be exactly what we wanted.
Can't wait to do it again. And would have no qualms about cruising the Sea or NCL again. The only thing even slightly disappointing was the weather.
