Our first cruise was also Sea Princess in the Caribbean, and one evening we returned all salty and sandy with very little time to shower and change. Because there was no helpful "Answers" page, we crept guiltily into the (excellent) buffet, to find all the other snorkellers enjoying a hearty meal. That's when we first realised that you actually did have a choice! Now, of course, we have this wonderful page. Enjoy! Jo.

You can eat wherever you want any night. The table booked in the Main Dining Room is there if you want it, but is your choice whether & when you use it, if at all. ...Wilba.

Yes you can eat at the freedom style restuarants and make the waiting longer for diners who have booked this style of restuarant with princess .

Would booking anytime dining not have been a better option.Please bear in mind the numerous diners who have booked anytime dining and are greatly inconvienced by fellow passengers who flit between fixed dining and anytime as their mood takes them.Think of it this way you turn up at second sitting to find an anytime diner trying your table.The buffet and speciality restaurants are available.

No you can only eat in the restaurant allocated. you can if you wish choose to miss the restaurant meal and eat in the steak bar, this you pay a lot for plus a service charge.later on in the night if you are hungry there is the late night buffet on the top deck.

We had booked second sitting on sea princess and were at a table of eight one couple eat in the horizen buffet twice and this was fine to do so.just remember to tell your dinner companions the evening before as they will probably wait for you to arrive.

I would suggest you book first sitting, normally 6.30pm That means you can catch 2 differentshows, if you want to. At most ports of call. Passengers have to be back on board by 4.30pm, so you have 2 hours to get ready.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

One Stop Shop !

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
