Default Dinner time

Mariner Mexico 5/10

any idea what the early and late seating times are? I can't decide between MTD or early. There are 8 of us and my girls love to get to know their waiters so I am thinking early but MTD sounds interesting also.

Sorry but I just can't seem to find this on the web site.

Early dining is 6:00 PM and late dining is 8:30 PM. Be advised that with MTD, you have to prepay your gratuities before you sail.

I don't mind prepaying. One less thing to worry about. What does bother me is having a different waiter each night. I really enjoy getting to my table the waiter remembering to have my ice tea. Just some of the special service you get. Do you feel rushed at MTD if we had a standing reservation say at 7 maybe we would get some of the little perks. Our waiters last time really got to know our girls and brought them chocolate milk with out us asking. It was a special service.Nice pampering. But 6 just to early like to have a sail away cocktail and 8:30 way to late.

Stay with assigned dining times. If you like to have the same wait staff, and have them remember what u like; u will not have that with MTD. Also, with MTD when u show up to eat, u will still have to wait to be seated; depending on how many people show up at a specific time and depending on how many are in your party, u could wait up to 15 min to be seated.
