  1. It was offered x 2 on my recent Rotterdam 32 day cruise. Was scheduled for lunch, seated like a Mariner lunch. I think there were 4 courses, but I have developed an intolerance to very spicy food, so liked the appetizer plate, and small amounts of the rest, which had good flavor. I didn't think to take a picture of the menu. I enjoyed the décor & Indonesian outfits the staff wore.
  2. The ship & Lincoln Center Stage musicians played with the BBC Program on the Rotterdam ( I debarked 11/20/19) and they really made the program. I appreciated the new updated Lincoln Center Stage area and the string quartet + piano replacing the Adagio Duo. The little lights on the tables in the MDR look silly.
  3. I called this AM to order a tree - they have the small one, plus 3 taller ones and a wreath for purchase. No pictures available.
  4. I just disembarked the Rotterdam on 11/20/19, 32 day cruise. There were lots & lots of loungers over & above the Lanai ones. I usually found one at the stern. No problem finding them......
  5. I remember last December that there were comments re. small trimmed Christmas trees (artificial) that could be ordered for individual cabins. I looked online at the Indulgences and Flowers sections, but didn't see anything. Has anyone done this, or should I plan to tuck a tiny one into my luggage (no lights). Thanks for responding.
  6. Each to his own - I would never consider any megaship -they look like an apartment building on it's side. Yes, Hal has deleted some amenities, but still love boarding one...
  7. Thanks for your reply. I choose to only sail on the smaller ships and always pick a cabin on Lower Promenade so I can spend time on the teak deck. So an Upgrade wouldn't be interesting to me unless it was an upgrade to Lanai. I do ask for fixed late dining, and I have never had to wait for seating at breakfast or lunch in the MDR. Think I'll save my $$$,
  8. Ho hum, disappointed to see the EXC lectures being shortened
  9. Any way I can see the "Big News"?
  10. Actually I was asking for specific benefits of CO that would be beneficial for me over & above the 4-star benefits. The ones I have read are not worth much for me. Thanks
  11. Since I will be boarding Maasdam in December, I'd like to know what benefits will apply to me as a 4-star mariner. Most of the ones I have seen do not interest me.
  12. Our ship was the Britannis - inside cabin below water line. But it was very big, lots of closets.
  13. December, 1990. Chandris cruise line (to become Celebrity) Fantasy ship. 5 day Caribbean, $499.00 I think.
