Sigh... we are contemplating switching cruises AGAIN!!! We were on the March MR, then the March Western, now an August Med. BUT(first some background info) we are concerned about DD (will be 4 at the time) making the trip across the pond overnight to Barcelona. Flying is nothing new for her (we fly every couple of months) but when she is off schedule she tends to puke and if it is turbulent it also happens... DS was the same and "grew out of it" at age 5 so that mixed the fact that she would not even remember this trip we are thinking saving some $$$ and taking the Alaskan cruise might be a better option (we live in Montreal so flying across Canada is easy and cheap). SO, The problem is that the only dining times for all cruises when we can go from late July through August only has the second dining seating, which can also cause DD to puke, so what are my chances of getting an earlier seating if we book one and ask at the bar when we board?
