Did you do early dining or second seating?? We are going with our four year old and have second seating... weren't sure if we should try to switch?

For us, the early 5:30 p.m. seating was perfect. We ended dinner each night between 7 and 7:30, with time to enjoy more activities. We converged on our stateroom each afternoon about 4:00 to rest/nap/get ready for dinner and found it was a good way for us to break up the day, and all get through dinner with alert/good behavior. The late seating was at 8:30, and went until about 10, allowing you a more leisurely afternoon and time for a potential long nap before dinner. (You can use the Oceanneer Lab or Club to drop off kids while you eat, if you'd prefer that option too.)

After dinner, we were all awake enough to hit more activities. One night we took our son to see the 45 minute Aladdin musical, another night we attended a character dance party and photo opp, and caught a movie in lounge chairs up on deck, which the Kiddo LOVED watching a movie outside in the dark. Another night we dropped him off at the Oceanneer Club for a bit after dinner.

One thing to note, though, is that the Pirate Party night didn't begin until 10:30, so that was a late night and gave us a lot of time to fill between dinner and that. (Which is actually easy to do with so much to see and do on the ship!)

If I had to do it over again, and could choose, we'd stick with the early seating, but would just adapt our usual schedule if we were eating later. . .like by sleeping in each morning. ;-)

Have a wonderful cruise!!
