Yeah, you always want to go for the earlier seating. Nothing ever happens up until 8 anyways, so the early seating is perfect...it took me 2 or 3 cruises as a teen to figure that out...

I always ate at the later seating. Then I don't have to rush in from ports and try getting ready fast. I can also stay on the deck and watch the sunset , or watch it from my balcony. I don't know I just feel less stressed if I have later dinner.

i normally have first seating cause i always thought that there would be more teens at early dinner than late.
alot of the people i meet though have later seating so in the end, it really doesnt matter what time your dinner is cause you'll all end up together later on in the night.
the only thing with second seating is that most shows are after your dinner so it'd start at like 10-1030 and end late. if you have early seating, you can eat then go to the show at around 8, and then meet up with friends who have the second seating cause by that time they should be done and hopefully dont want to watch their show.

Personally I like late seating, I've always had it on my cruises. Except on Princess where you could go whenever you wanted but I always went later. I like having dinner later because you aren't so rushed back from the islands especially on formal night. The first night I usually skip dinner to head to the teen thing. But I go all the other nights..most of my friends Ive met had late seating. And you dont miss any of the teen stuff because on my cruises it hasn't started until 10..and dinner usually finishes around 10 or a little after.

i also have early and i love it.
we usually get back from the island at around 4, so it's perfect. it only takes me about an hour to get ready for dinner. plus i always eat earlier at home, i would not be able to wait that long to eat if i had later.

Sorry a little late to reply on this topic, however I believe a couple of different factors are crucial in deciding the importance of your dinner seating time.

Firstly are your parents going to force you/do you want to go to formal dinner everynight no matter what time its at, as there are other alternatives such as eating at the windjammer or ordering room service

Is the ship curfew going to be enforced strictly, in this situation this can leave you with only 2 and a half hours after dinner before 1am especially on formal nights

Are your new shipboard friends on first or late sitting, on the summit this past easter, no one was really around between 6 30 and 8 30 but quite often Id go and watch the film on in the cinema.
