How do I go about making reservations for the main dining room for my time dining on Royal Caribbean's website? I cannot figure it out. I can see how to make reservations for the up charge restaurants though. Can someone please walk me through this? Otherwise, I'll be visiting the maitre'd as soon as we board.

You signed up for My Time Dining when you booked right? (rather than one of the preset times) If so...

Go into the cruise planner, and then hover over dining, then there should be an option for My Time Dining. Click that. Then click "Add to Cart", Then choose your guests, then choose your day and time. and go through the process of checking out. It's free. You'll then get a confirmation email.

If I remember correctly you have to scroll all the way down past the upcharge restaurants.
I could only do one night at a time - checkout - then start over. I’m sure there has to be an easier way. Lol

The reason I couldn't see "My time dining" is my dining got switched to Late dining when my reservation was moved into a group through booking agency this spring; I didn't know. I got it switched back and was able to make my reservations for this Sept.. However, I, too, had to completely check out and start over for each day, could not "continue shopping." If someone knows an easier way, please let me know, as I have another reservation in Jan. to make reservations for. Thank you.

That's the only way to do it. One day at a time.

Actually on the page with all of the dining options just below the featured dining options and above the “Sort By” button, you can click “Plan All Cruise Dining” to set all of your MDR reservations at the same time. Hope that helps!

Sorry for the noob question, but I wanted early dining, but couldn't get it because it was sold out for my sailing. I made 5:30 PM reservations for every night. Is there any difference between YTD with a 5:30 PM reservation and early dining? Do you get sent to a different MDR? Is there a difference other than decor?

Yes, different Dining Room. MTD they will seat you usually different table/Waiters each nite. But if all same times every nite you may be assigned... Regular Main Dining same waiters and table number assigned on your card and only 2 seatings

This has been puzzling me. We have booked My Time dining but if you need to reserve beforehand, surely that negates the flexibility that My Time brings? Also, there are only two of us but we would be more than happy to share - in fact we would prefer to. Is it possible to book tables for sharing in advance?

You don’t have to make reservations ahead of time. If you don’t there may be a bit if a wait for a table.

With can only request to be seated at a larger table when you show up for dinner. They may or may not be able to accommodate that request, it will depend on if others showing up at the same time as you have also made that request.
