I am a Traditional Dining gal and I always request a large table. I've done second seating all but once, and that one time I ended up seated with the most boring "in bed by 8:30" family ever. But then again, in second seating, my table mate luck has been about 60% good/40% get another table and then it's good.
Do you think those stats are any better or worse if I chose first seating?
I ask because on my last cruise I had second seating as usual, but I was also an early riser (7:00am or so) and ended up wanting my bed right after dinner. So, I broke my own rule and selected first seating for my next cruise so I'll still be awake enough to enjoy evening entertainment and digest before bed.
Thanks for your thoughts.
