I have a concern, just read an older review of the Radiance and would like opinions on dinner seating times. this review said that there are alot of announcements throughout the afternoon and evening that annoyed this passenger and that the late seating is too late and they were really hungry and wished they had booked the earlier dinner seating. So are they still having these annoying announcements that you can hear in your room and also at the dinner table and I am thinking of changing my dinner to the earlier one. Any comments?
I'm not sure I understand the relationship between on board announcements and the early or late dinner seating.
If you prefer to have your dinner around 6 then choose the early dinner and you can always have a snack later in the evening.
You could choose the late seating and if you're hungry around the traditional dinner time, you could grab a light snack before your dinner.
It comes down to what you prefer.
It sounds to me like the person who wrote that review enjoys complaining.

actually it was two questins in one - but related because supposedly there are alot of (loud speaker) announcements on this ship during the day (disturbing people while taking naps in their cabin) and disturbing people at dinner (seems around the late dinner hour) and the late dinner seemed later than usual because of the 8:30 time frame. Just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced these annoying announcements on the Radiance?
The dinner times are awkward. I would prefer to eat around 7:00, but since the only options are 5:00 and 8:00, you have to pick your poison. My husband and I went with late seating, and we liked it. Even our waiter told us late seating was better because on port days, early seating personnel are rushing to get ready for dinner in time. Late seating gives you plenty of time to get back on the ship, relax, take a shower, changes clothes, etc. Like previously mentioned, you can always grab a snack. They have free pizza and cookies on the promenade, or you could grab a little something from the Windjammer.
