Mine for next months cruise was available at 4AM .....  .....but the opening was about 13 days late from the 120 day mark for no known reason.

US or UK time?

US Eastern time. That’s what time I got up for work but that’s not to say that it wasn’t open a minute after midnight either though.

It will open at midnight (Eastern Time).  For my cruise, instead of 120 days out, it was more like 105 days out!!!

For my last two cruises it has been at midnight eastern time. It might take a log out/log in for your account to refresh, or a few minutes for the pages to update to show the right options.

Was it accurate based on what time the website said it would open? (vs 120 days)

No.  It was supposed to be 120 days out.

I'll add that sometimes not everything seem to open up immediately. When I began making dining reservations for a cruise last fall, all restaurants except one were available for booking. That one opened up about a week later.

I usually try at Midnight Eastern, but like others have noted it isn't always running smoothly then.  At times you will find glitches where a day that has zero restaurants available, or you can only book tables for 1.    Don't worry too much, we have always been able to add or change a reservation pretty easily on the first day we board.  Many more restaurant reservation times are held for booking onboard. 

Also, if you missed getting a main show reservation in our experience there are many seats open due to 'no-shows' for the 2nd show of the evening.

Thanks all for the advice, just to confirm back, everything did open today as expected.
