I have heard that when you are on the late sitting they re-heat the same food that was prepared for the first sitting, did any of you experience this.

Good question....We always pick the later sitting when there is one because we find the early too early. Others like to eat earlier and say that the evening is better because of it. You may be able to change before you sail if you wanted to but if this proves to be impossible, don't panic, queue to see the Maitre D' when you get onboard and normally he will effect a change for you along with loads of others. It will probably be the next day before you get a change because the system works better that way. Hope that helps.....Id.

Just had a look at your sailing times on the MSC website, apart from Tunis, they sail at 7pm or later at the rest, so I'd say it would be less of a rush to get ready fro dinner if you were on the second sitting. However if you then want to go to the show, you are not going to get to bed much before midnight 9which personally suits me fine as I don't like to get up early in the morning), However if you are going to be getting up early and getting off the ship at the earliest possible time, you might be happy to head back to the ship well before the final boarding time and have time to get ready for dinner. (You will only have 2 gala/formal dinners in any case, the rest will be informal or casual.

We were on early sitting last year, but wished we were on late. There were many nights when we had to rush back from being ashore or even just enjoying sitting in the jacuzzi watching the sun set. We have booked for late sitting this year.
