  1. I did get it, but I didn't do anything, always hoping it would improve. I know what to do, I just didn't could kick myself now. Believe me it won't happen again.
  2. I don't know about the champagne, I guess it's a good way to lure people in the first day.
  3. OOPs made a slight mistake he is on the Reflection. I was looking at booking the Silhouette and guess I had Silhouette on the brain. Norma
  4. The Imade I know is on the Silhouette, sorry, I will post a pic of the Imade I know.
  5. Can't believe I am back home and the cruise is over so quickly. Leaving the ship was simple and quick. They used facial recognition. No line to grab a cab to the airport. Charge was $14.95 plus tip. Check in was quick an onto the United lounge. Flying home United, flight was 1 1/2 hrs late leaving, I had a 3 hr layover and was able to make my connect, but many others on my flight missed their connections. Going to outline a few things I felt were misses and then I will do hits. 1. Service was very slow in Cafe Al Bacio. I felt they were under-staffed, and the staff that was there really didn't seem like they were just overwork. It pains me to say that because I have always had great experiences in Al Bacio. 2. Same holds true for the Martin Bar. There were times 2 and 3 people deep with only 2 bartenders. I can not count how many times people left with no drink or went to another bar and then came back with a drink. Very disappointed. Once you got the bartender's attention they made a decent drink. 3.Three of the bathrooms I used on a regular basis has a light outside the handicapped stall when in use. In all 3 bathrooms this light was not lighting up. I notified the bathroom attendants on multiple occasions however the lights were never fixed. Not the end of the world but annoying when you think the stall is empty when its actually busy. 4. Soap dispenser in bathroom by the ensemble lounge broken for days, never fixed. Again not life changing but if you wanted to wash with soap... had to use the other sinks in the main bathroom. After the first few days of poor service in Cafe Al Bacio and the Martini bar, I should of spoke to the bar manager. It was my bad I didn't, I just kept hoping it would improve. If they don't know there is a problem how can they fix it. Now for the hits. 1. Excellent service in Murano, Tuscan and Sushi on 5. 2. Excellent food in Murano, Tuscan and Sushi on 5. 3. Shout outs to Marko and Michael in Murano, Diego and Ryan in Tuscan. 4. Bar service in all other bars was excellent. Ship overall including my cabin was in decent shape, I had good water pressure and hot water in shower. If anyone has any questions I am more than happy to answer. Here are a few more pictures to wrap up my trip. Thanks for following along it was fun.
  6. Friday Nov 1 Where does The time go. This cruise has just flown by I blink my eyes and two or three days of gone by I have never had a cruise that is move this fast. So many nice people I have met and so many lovely conversations I have had I couldn’t ask for a better cruise as far as other passengers have gone. Below are today’s dailies I’m just getting ready to hop in the shower and head to the martini bar for our last night on the ship. Luggage is about 95% packed and I chose to use the luggage valet service this time it is $25 and they’ve brought all of my documents and I put my suitcase out by 10 tonight next time I look at it I will be getting off the carousel in San Francisco.

  8. Halloween, Oct 31, last sea day😢 I had a great day yesterday, so much fun to relax and chat with friends new and old. still now sure why the Martini bar is only staffed with 2 bartenders during one of its busiest times, to be fare I think the service has improved slightly. Still seeing people giving up and leave, then see them return after going to another bar and getting a drink. Well Enough of that. We had dinner with six new friends last night and Murano they sat us in the wine room which was nice and private so we could really get to know each other. That service and the food we’re both excellent. It’s hard to figure out how time can slip by that fast we were there almost 3 hours. View from the Tuscan was so so beautiful this morning pic below
  9. Haven’t been able to find a bartender named Singh, sorry. Took a bit of doing to get it but I persisted, here you go.
  10. I think because they had to go to a different port to do the refurbishment they didn’t have enough time to do everything, all I can see that they’ve done is updated the bedding, carpet and furniture Appear to be the same. The only place I’ve noticed the change is the Sunset bar has new patio furniture and stools.
  11. Sky lounge still nigh doesn’t appear any changes of been made in the sky lounge.
  12. I think we are going to pass have eaten at sushi in 5 once, Tuscan twice and Murano 3X, we still have 2 more nights left, I think lunch will send us over the edge ha ha.
  13. We haven’t eaten in the dining room. I know I. The past you could do this I will try to find out tomorrow. My daughter texted me saying power is back on, however she had to fly to LA for business today, quick trip had to put the dogs in doggie daycare. Didn’t feel comfortable leaving them home alone.
