My last two cruises i have opted for freedom dining this being with Princess and p@o.Princess gave us the opportunity to dine when we wanted and to be seated at a table size which suited or mood for that evening and at a time of our choice all in all it was succesful.P@O however were not so good times and table size not as well organised.In conclusion i prefer freedom, any time, or my time dining as it provides opportunities to meet many new people and allows conversation with the pre dinner drink without having one eye on the clock for a fixed sitting. Live life on the edge try it once you might like it.

If you like going to dinner at the same time, and sitting with the same people every night - then stick with Traditional Dining. Personally I dislike the rigidity of it, I am on holiday and I want to eat when I want to and I welcome the opportunity to do MyTime dining! And to correct your husband, RCI have introduced this as a response to public feedback that more people want flexibility. If you look, all major cruise lines (except X) now have some sort of MyTime dining, and all the 'high end' lines all offer this too.
