Dinner times were 6:00/8:30 or 6:30/8:45, depending on port times. It varied daily.

Two years ago I'm pretty sure it was 6:00pm and 8:30pm. But they were pretty open to late comers. If our excursion got us back too late for early seating, they still allowed us to come in and dine. In Naples we didn't get back to the ship until 7pm. So we thought we would just grab a bite from room service or on the pool deck. But our awesome server was actually watching for us in front of the restaurant in the atrium. As we were riding the elevator up he waved to us and motioned for us to still come to dinner. So we did. Great meal and no rush at all. We went in September and the ship was only 60% full. So that may account for the flexibility.

OK, did a little research, this is the dinner schedule for our cruise in Sep 2010:
Day 1 Barcelona 6:00/8:30
Day 2 At Sea 6:00/8:30
Day 3 Malta 6:00/8:30
Day 4 Tunis 6:00/8:30
Day 5 Naples 6:00/8:30
Day 6 Civitaveccia 6:00/8:30
Day 7 La Spezia 6:30/8:45
Day 8 Corsica 6:00/8:30
Day 9 Villefranche 6:30/8:45
Day 10 At Sea 6:00/8:30

So, generally, the times were 6:00 and 8:30. On port days that were late, they adjusted the times.

We did the cruise both in 2007 and 2010 and the head waiter did a wonderful job of getting us into dinner when we returned late from our excursions. We had early dining and never missed a meal. They really do a wonderful job of getting you to dinner.

Agree with all the above posters. We had early dining on the Med and Baltic and we never missed a meal in the MDR.
