  1. Looks like April 23-27 on the Conquest out of Miami
  2. Do they have sugar in the raw packets? We can always bring our own, and I know things can change between now and next April. Just wanted to see if they had them.
  3. Sid... This review has over 1,500 replies and over 117,000 views. I’ll join my fellow posters when I say that WE owe YOU a giant THANK YOU! I’m about 60 pages in on the ATL thread.... and like many here, I feel a connection with you. You are unselfish with your thoughts and your time, and you really welcome the reader into your life... good, bad, or ugly. I would not be that brave! Your writing style is so enthralling.... I have no social media, and I’m generally a patient person... but I found myself constantly checking this review to see your latest thoughts, beverages, and clothing choices! I hope that in the middle of providing a play by play of your vacation, that you actually enjoyed your vacation and that our presence and questions etc did not disrupt your cruise. You allowed us on your vacation, on your dime, and on your time... and we appreciate you!
  4. Really glad you made it home safely, Sid! This was my first time reading your reviews, and you can now add another fan to your already lengthy list! The next one will be here before you know it!
  5. Good morning Sid! Sorry it’s coming to an end, but now you get to look forward to the next one! Enjoy your coffee this morning, and safe travels!
  6. Happiest of birthdays, Sid! I hope you have a great evening on board and a great nights sleep! Thank you again for giving US the presents!
  7. You got to go by the set for Survivor yesterday... while wearing your life vest from the Siege of Tyre in 332 BC. That’s kind of a cool bday present!
  8. That ahi poke looks incredible 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤
  9. Just don’t send me the bill 😜 hahaha
  10. In my opinion, this is probably more for the benefit of the kitchen staff than it is for filling your belly. Think about the thousands of covers they do every day... day in, day out, for months at a time. Meat, starch, veg, repeat. They probably relish (hehe) the chance to show off their chops once or twice a week. I graduated from culinary school and worked in many restaurants, and owned my own business for a while. I enjoyed the times I got to make stuff off the menu and bring my own form of artistry to the plate. I enjoy working with my hands, and I enjoyed taking raw product and transforming it into a beautiful final product. A chef mentor I had when I was coming up used to reiterate... what we do is one of the most intimate forms of human to human interaction you can have. People are literally putting into their bodies what you have presented to them. Take care, take pride, show respect for their trust, and above all, show respect for the food.... I always held this very close when I was in the industry. You trust me to feed you, to employ best safety practices in terms of fresh product and proper handling. The animal that was once living is now in my hands, and I have to honor its life by respecting it throughout my cookery. They love what they do, and their love is clearly shown by the intricate and consistently beautifully plates they turned out during that dinner. Minimalist, deconstructed molecular gastronomy cuisine is not my specific preference in terms of dining or actual cooking. But I enjoyed doing it, and now that I’ve left the industry, I greatly enjoy seeing it from the other side. Off my my soap box now... my wife and I are taking our first Carnival cruise next year (and only our second cruise ever). The first thing I did after paying the deposit was to book the chefs table. I am beyond excited to be a part of it!
  11. Grab a few of those sugar straws and improvise!
  12. That was a heap of rabbit food on that pizza.... but I suppose you gotta ingest SOME healthy calories. By the way... audibly chortled at “squoze” and woke my dogs up out of a snooze! Enjoying the review and your writing style immensely. I’m a new follower, so thank you for opening your life to all of us.
  13. You have a table for 8 to yourself again?
  14. Never too early to start saving for your next cruise!
  15. Coulda carried them in your belly 🤷🏻‍♂️
