    Wine is very personal. 
    When I have the drink package I often spend a few extra bucks for a better glass of wine especially in a specialty restaurant.  Sometimes when I don't have the drink package the cheap wine that is covered by the diamond happy hour tastes pretty darn good.

    Think of MTD without reservations like going to an Applebees or Outback restaurant in your home town.  If you go at peak dinner hour, chances are you will have a wait.  If you go off-peak, chances are you will be seated quickly.  Like a land restaurant, the My Time MDR  isn't big enough to hold everyone showing up all at once.  I always use My Time and I make reservations before sailing.  Most of the time I stick to them but if there is a pretty sunset or a show or I'm just into what ever I'm doing, sometimes I miss my reservation.

    You guys were too nice.  I would have at least messed with him for a bit, telling him it's a special kind of kidney bean only served in the MDR.

    This cooking your own meals on land sucks.  I so miss being on a ship.  Ugh.

    twangster got a reaction from Carlos A. in My Time Dining   
    The My Time reservation has a +/- 15 minute window.  They try to place you with the same wait staff each night in the MTD sections.  They'll hold tables to accommodate this concept but if the line is out the door they have to let them go to folks without reservations at some point, so the +/- 15 minute window is a compromise. 
    In theory if you show up 30 minutes late they may treat you as if you don't have a reservation.  I try not to do this out of respect for the system knowing there are folks without reservations potentially waiting for my empty table if I don't show up on time.

    twangster got a reaction from Garnet21 in Solo Dining in MDR   
    I cruise solo often but I am also a frequent business traveler and for years I've grown accustomed to eating alone on business trips. 
    I tend to go with My Time dining in the MDR.  I've never asked to be placed at a shared table.  I am always seated at a table for two but by myself.  Generally speaking the two seat tables are pretty close to each other so it's easy to start a conversation with tables around me.  Sometimes those people are not into that, sometimes they are.  On Serenade I was given a bottle of wine for issue I had in Chops and I shared it with the couple at the table beside me in the MDR.
    I generally look at the menu and decide if I want to go to the MDR that night or eat in the WJ.

    On OA class the lifeboats are guests, liferafts are for crew.  They have a slinky like tube they descend down to the water level.
