Default Dining Room Table Location?

Does anyone have any advice for the best table location in the Dining Room?

We'll be a party of 10 (including kids 6yrs-14), on the Exlporer in June.

I've heard that a window table is great but then someone mentioned a waiter dance/show on the grand staircase that you don't want to miss???

Any advice on how to actually get the table once you know what you want?

Thanks, Kelly

On a different cruise line, we went directly to the dining room upon embarkation and checked out our table assignment. We had a party of 12 and they could only fit 10 there. They were able to add a small table on the end to accomodate all of us. I didn't like having 1 long table. I would have preferred 2 tables for 6. Our table was the first table when we walked in the dining room.

That is a good piece of advice.

If you think that you might have a special request or just want to verify that your table is to your liking, get to the dining room early. The lines can get really long very quickly.

Is the location of the table really that important? Any thoughts...

I have noticed that the higher status CandA and State room category generally gets better table locations. Depending how full, the ship will depend how they will be able to accomodate a change on board. When booking, get your TA to suggest you may prefer to be near the center location. Sitting near the entrance can be really isolated, however it is also quiet. Sometimes when full, they will open a side lounge (which is very isolated), this is very quiet.
