Independence of the Seas has one main dining room. However, this huge room has three levels.
For breakfast, the portion of the restaurant on Deck 3 offers both a buffet and table service. It is done on an open seating basis.
Lunch (sea days) utilizes the same level. It is also open seating.
At dinner, two levels of the restaurant (decks 4 &5) follow the traditional dining system with each passenger assigned to a specific table at either the main seating or the late seating.
The other level (deck 3) follows a flexible dining system. Each guest who opts for this system can dine there any time the restaurant is open. There is no specific table assignment so a guest may not have the same waiters or table companions throughout the cruise. However, the ship tries to seat guests so that they have the same waiters each night. Reservations are encouraged but are not mandatory.
