  1. Perhaps someone at Captain's Club can explain why Zeniths can no longer have lunch together with Concierge Class upon boarding as has been the practice for the last few years?
  2. Sorry but my health is nearer the end than the beginning.. The future just ain't what it used to be.

  4. I've been confused for a long time why Cruise Critic changed the name from Connections to Royal's Mingle. However on an upcoming cruise...

  5. Captains Club Celebration was a major production involving the musical talents of all the groups onboard.
  6. I have not seen any posts on Park West... a great way to waste time and money on "great" art.. They are great at making a presentation to a dozen or so people while preventing everyone else from using the sky lounge near the windows on sea days.. They will even arrange the seats so that trivia players will have to move them if they would like to play in teams.. Those participating in trivia will then be asked to rearrange the chairs for Parkwest whose presentation is hours later... (sorry a real pet peeve about who really matters in occupying prime real estate onboard).
  7. Yes! One of the cabin stewards was called over an all he could do was warn people getting on and off the elevators until further help arrived. I showed my picture to the GRM but she did not seem too surprised.
  8. Captain Nick is supposed to deliver Flora to Ecuador and then takeover Reflection. I believe there will be a temporary assignment to takeover from Captain Skylogianis until Capt. Nick arrives. However past postings have changed with little warning and affecting a whole bunch of dominoes. Captain Kate's replacement on Equinox has not been announced as yet either.
  9. Recently on Reflection, the large dog had a blanket reading service dog in training, would jump up as any friendly dog would when greeting strangers. The trail led all the way to the corridor to the elevator.
  10. Captain Theo Zakkas may soon be back as master .. perhaps Millennium. He was one of the captains that stayed with Century when it was sadly moved to the China market.
  11. I have never seen prices like this before. Now if I could only find a safe plane to get me to the port. A few airlines may not have the capacity to get you there.
  12. Please get her to use Celebrity's email data base to reach members as her predecessor did. I have yet to receive any information from her. I would like to see another level between 3,000 and 99,999
  13. Read this right after I made up the chart.... Thank you for the update.
  14. I can't imagine living without my wife and cruising partner. Our sincerest condolences. While on Reflection recently they played a song every day that never failed to bring a tear or two. I don't know if the lyrics will be removed but the title does not reflect the mood it inspires: " "If We Were Vampires" It's not the long flowing dress that you're in Or the light coming off of your skin The fragile heart you protected for so long Or the mercy in your sense of right and wrong It's not your hands, searching slow in the dark Or your nails leaving love's watermark It's not the way you talk me off the roof Your questions like directions to the truth It's knowing that this can't go on forever Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone Maybe we'll get forty years together But one day I'll be gone or one day you'll be gone If we were vampires and death was a joke We'd go out on the sidewalk and smoke And laugh at all the lovers and their plans I wouldn't feel the need to hold your hand Maybe time running out is a gift I'll work hard 'til the end of my shift And give you every second I can find And hope it isn't me who's left behind It's knowing that this can't go on forever Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone Maybe we'll get forty years together But one day I'll be gone or one day you'll be gone It's knowing that this can't go on forever Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone Maybe we'll get forty years together But one day I'll be gone or one day you'll be gone"
