Thanks for the input. It's amazing that in just about 20 minutes, that window I was looking for was booked. I suppose if we request a seat, that might even delay our seating to closer to the 7:30 time slot I wanted. I wonder though, doesn't everyone want a window? They must hate that request. I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask. And if I think about it, that 10 minute difference in timing probably doesn't make a huge difference. At least I hope not. Still not sure if I want to watch fireworks from in restaurant our out on deck. Have you experienced either and which do you prefer?
