    Hello! We are sailing on our first cruise on the Dream in November. What time does the early dining start? If we choose the later seating, what time does the show start? We are considering the later dining. Any advice?

    Hi Kelley!

    In reference to dining, Main Seating on the Dream is at 5:45pm; the Second seating is at 8:15pm.  There are at least two (if not three) showtimes on the ship each evening, and the schedule has been designed to allow Guests more than enough time to see a performance of any evening's live show.

    Personally, I always choose late dining.  It allows us time to watch the exciting live shows and have dinner as a family.  After that, my husband and I drop the kids off at their youth clubs, and we can have some time together to enjoy the fabulous nightlife onboard. 

    Once we pick up the kids, we head back to our stateroom and order Room Service.  We love ordering some bed times snacks such as the Big Island Cookie (DELICIOUS) and milk!  Of course, we're well known to throw in some steak sandwiches!  It's a great time to wind down, talk about what you did while you were apart, and get ready for bed.

    I hope this helps Kelley.  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Have a magical trip!
