Thanks for the live thread, hope you are enjoying your cruise! I'm boarding the Royal in October for the TA cruise back to Florida! I've been on the Regal but not the Royal, can't wait!

A note about Anytime dining – I am not trying to be “DebbieDowner” --- BUT the lines have been enormous for people trying to get into anytime dining! I am not sure if it is because of club class dining, but we saw the same thing happen on the Island when we were on it for 15 days in February of this year. I saw this huge line snaking around the deck and wondered what everyone was in line for so I asked and they were all waiting to eat. Not good!
What time are you targeting dinner?

On our last Royal the lines were there especially if you eat early(but not super early).
They had one room, V early fixed, then anytime, when we checked that often shorter/no line.
If both a bit busy just went a bit later when they had gone.

We are doing traditional dining so it has not affected us, just have heard from those doing anytime!
