question about booking excursions/dining

My booking and check in starts tonight. Do I have to check in before I can book excursions and dinners? Which one is it better to do first?
Thank you

I think you need to book excursions, etc first. Actual on-line check-in doesn't really become available until a few hours after midnight (EST).

I have never cruised before, but can you book excursions before you do online check in?

As long as the DCL website is cooperating, the window for excursions/adult dining/spa/nursery/cabanas opens at 12:00 (midnight) eastern time. Online check in opens at 3:00 am the same morning.
