How do we know which dining room is the MDR?

Ok, dumb question, we are sailing on the Carnival Fantasy November 30, 2019. Our past cruises we only went to the MDR a few times (different ships) This time, we are doing "your time" dining (first time), my question is, if there are 2 dining rooms, how do we know which one to go to? Also, everyone is raving about "sea day brunch" and "breakfast in the MDR". There is "the jubilee" and "celebration" dining rooms. Please help :)

As for the first part, don't worry, they will let you know. You should also be able to find it on Carnival's website for that ship. Also, try Google or YouTube, which has tins of cruise videos.

Not so dumb..but the answer is they BOTH are...on deck 8, separated by the ships galley...both seat 650+ each...might have slightly different for bkfst, brunch on seadays, closed for lunch on port days etc etc..and no, I have NEVER been on that ship, and the point is it doesn't matter...JB is exactly right...a quick look at CCLs deck plans for that ship, which even includes descriptions of the different areas, will tell you everything you need to know about wheres what...especially whats around your cabin. you can even look up the menus if you like...telling you you're "overthinking" this is a waste...because we remember some of the things that confuzzled us in those early'll be fine...suggest you bang some keys and surf'll know more than at least 50% of the folks on board who look dazed and confused all the time...good luck, relax, and enjoy!!!!

They have a designated area for YTD, you will have the dining room and deck printed on your sail and sign card. We didn't go to the sea day brunch but did enjoy breakfast in the dining room. One of the areas will be open for these and it will be listed in the Fun Times (your daily paper) and on the Fun Hub (the digital version for your phone). Relax it is so easy.

As others have said, it'll be printed on your Sail and Sign card, and listed in the daily Fun Times.

Thanks everyone
