When we prebook excursions online, do we pick the time too?

Our last DCL cruise was in 1999 (me and my then boyfriend, who is now my husband of 12 years) and I think we booked everything via our travel agent or even when we got on board the ship.

We our taking our 1st family cruise (with DS9 and DD7) this July on the Fantasy (7 day Western). Super excited! Anyway, my question is in the title: when we prebook excursions, activities, and dining online, will we be able to select our desired time as well? Hoping there are still a lot of openings!

Also, can anyone tell me if I prebook for the Castaway 5k or do we sign up on board the ship (or just show up when they tell us to)? Thanks!

Dining time in the main dining rooms is assigned when you book your cruise.

When you book Palo or Remy the reservation includes an assigned time -- you have your choice of what's available.

Most shore excursions are offered only one or two times, and you choose one of those times when you sign up.

Yes, you'll pick the excursion time too. I don't know anything about the 5k though.

Also, no pre-register for the Castaway 5K. Just show up at the locale and time specified in your Navigator. It's unusually in one of the pubs.
