  1. Hi H, We liked our several cruises on Celebrity at least as much as we did our cruises on HAL. Ira Except for The Prinsendam
  2. Hi All, Finally, after spending 2 sleepless nights mulling over the pros and cons, I have decided that I shall ........................ drumroll ........................ go with The Ruby. Ira Unless, of course, you have good reasons why I should choose The Grand Princess 🙂
  3. Hi All,. Thanks for your great observations. I am now waffling between The Grand and The Ruby. 🙂 🙂 Ira Alfredos, Adagio, Share, Sabatini's........
  4. Thanx to all who have replied so far. Ira
  5. Hi All, We are planning a cruise to Hawaii, either aboard the Grand out of LA or the Ruby out of SF. Same cabin - C753. Is one ship preferable to the other? Thanks Ira
  6. >I would have told them that this area is a 'quiet zone' and could they please lower their voices. < Since they would continue on, I would repeat that in a louder voice. Since they would continue on, I would repeat that in an even louder voice. Eventually, it would get through to them and they would take offense at being yelled at, but they would shut up. An alternative is to throw a bucket of cold water on them. Ira
  7. On a different cruise line, I recently saw a 30-something fellow purposely bump into an older man and just walk away. A few days later, that same person bumped into me while I was standing still waiting for an elevator. He said, "Excuse me". As if that would make it alright. I replied, "No. You are not excused. That was very rude of you". He said, "Watch where you are going". Oddly enough, I did not see him again for the next 9 days. Ira
  8. We liked Chops when we dined there earlier this month aboard The Serenade OTS. Found it superior to the Pinnacle Grill on HAL. Ira
  9. > Here are the bulk Marmalade and Jam containers in the Lido ... Bring your own serving spoons. Wear gloves to handle the containers. Ira
  10. Hi L, I'd just go with the TA. Enjoy your cruise. Ira
  11. Hi CaC, > I am not planning to be late. I'm just wondering in the event that the plane is delayed how much time I have to work with. To be safe, why not arrive the day before and stay at an hotel overnight? ((I))
  12. > wondering if very many men wear nice shorts in the MDR for dinner? Yes, if by "many" you mean a small fraction. However, you also have to wear a baseball cap turned backwards and have at least one tattoo. Enjoy your trip. Ira
  13. > In the US, the fat content of 1/2 &1/2 is between 11% and 18.5%. Unless you buy "fat free" Half & Half. https://motherwouldknow.com/know-ingredients-fat-free-half-half/ Ira
  14. Back in the old days, we would pluck a reed from a stream and use that as a straw. Ira
