    We are doing the 3 night Dream in May. We have second seating I believe to be around 8pm for diner. However, my kids usually eat aroud 6, Are the other places to eat open later in the afternoon to grab snacks or does room service come at any time?

    Welcome aboard, Stephanie! My family always goes back and forth about which seating to choose each time we cruise because there are such great benefits to both!

    One thing you might not realize about the second seating is that children are served their meals first and then about 45 minutes into the seating, counselors from the Oceaneer's Club and Lab arrive at the doors to each of the three main dining restaurants to take children up to the clubs to play while their parents enjoy the rest of their meal on their own, should they choose to do so. It's a nice way to have some family meal time, but end it with a bit of adult time too.

    If your kids get hungry before dinner, you are always free to stop by one of the food spots near the pools for a quick bite, stop into Cabanas buffet to get a snack, or what we like to do is order from the complimentary room service (do bring some small bills for tips though). It's so nice to have some snacks delivered to the room to nibble on while we get dressed for dinner each night. You might enjoy that too!

    You'll be setting sail very soon, Stephanie, so let me know if you have any other questions!
