Thanks in advance

Each ship's maitre d' makes their own policies.Yes, you are so right ... it varies from ship to ship!
Some only offer reservations at a couple specific set times.
Some will only reserve tables for two at either opening time or 8:00 and later.
Some allow you to make the next day's reservation when you leave dinner each night, some only the day of.
As suggested above, just call the Dine Line and take your best shot.
Should not be allowed. TD should not be allowed in at all. Turn up when you want to dine and take your chances with the wait, They should have lots more two tops so you aren't forced to share.I totally agree. Making reservations defeats the purpose of AD and is a rude way to get to the front of the line.
Dine line (DINE) opens promptly at 8. Call at 8:15 and they might not have any more reservations available. If you get a fast busy dial again. If you get a ring, hang on. Sometimes it comes back that you are in a queue - hang on.8:15 ! Don't you mean 8:01.
Or if you like to eat early just get in line 20 minutes before the dining room opens. If you like to eat after 7:30 you almost never need a reservation but might get a beeper on busy nights (just like a shore restaurant).
To a newbie, it sounds as if the simple solution is have a slice of pizza around 3 and then go to the dining room after 7:30. Easy-peasy.Yes, but if you want to see the main show in the show lounge, it kind of messes up the evening's schedule.
Rodger Dodger.....totally agree...it is really an abuse of the system that Princess mixes ATD with reservations....
I say do away with reservations & get there when you want to eat. If a certain time is that important, try traditional.
