My two cents...I much rather enjoyed the champagne reception that we had on our last sailing in the Vista Lounge as opposed to the brunch. If I were someone who had many more days and were on a landmark sailing, I would have probably missed having the opportunity to be recognized in front of everyone. These folks have spend many many many dollars on HAL sailings and should have this recognition if they want it, but IMO this type of brunch takes this opportunity away from them. I just know that we were just amazed at the number of days that many of the passengers have sailed on HAL on our last sailing. What a wonderful loyalty...and I certainly understand why...and hope to be there myself sometime soon.
