This question is specifically for anyone who has been on the ship recently. I tried to scrounge up the answer and it seems that it changes as CARNY "experiments"...We cruise NCL...a lot..but we decided for an assortment of reasons to give CARNY a shot...haven't been on one of theirs in years. (mebbe 8?+) ..
We prefer "anytime dining" or "your time dining" or whatever its called lately. We generally eat very early, so we can catch the early show and then head for a bar or late snack. On NCL, and given our status, getting a table, even a window table, is normal. No wait, no line, no fuss. And yes, we always get a table for two.... I understand that on VISTA, one dining room is used for "your time dining". True? (not that I care, all the MDRS serve the same food..) But I read somewhere that theres a "process", involving some kind of "pink slip"....or not..which you have to get in another location??....its a short enough cruise, and some nites we'll do specialties, but man I hate bureaucratic nonsense, especially when I don't expect it or understand it.
So if some kind soul who has sailed her recently, AND I guess actually done "YOUR TIME DINING" (preferably with a table for two)...would explain it, I would be more than happy to buy all kinds of refreshments next time around!!!
