Dining time question

We have booked our 2nd cruise and the early dining was full so we chose anytime dining. On our first cruise I know you had to be done by a certain time so they could prepare for the late dining. What if we are there and not finished eating, are they going to hurry us out? Loved the main dining room but don't want to be hurried. Anyone have experience with the anytime dining on Carnival?

I sign up for anytime dining on just about every cruise that I take including the one in January 2019. I am never rushed. In fact eating in the MDR mostly is too leisurely for me.

All the other lines stole the Free Style dining from NCL. :) They had it long before any others. RCI is the same now. We book a table shortly after we get on the ship. If we like the staff and location, we book ahead for other nights, assuming we know what time we want to eat for those times. No problems.

Just returned off of our first RCL and we had my time dining and loved it. Anthem of the Seas has 4 MDR. 2 for set time dining and 2 for my time all with the same menu. When we walked up for seating we never had to wait more than 1 or 2 minutes. We were always asked if we had a dining room preference and or preferred waiter. In order to expedite things that would also seat my time diners in the set time venues if the tables were not used. It was great.
