  1. Not only that but some have tried the dish and didn't like it - THAT preparation. I've always told my son, if you don't like something the first time you try it, try it again when someone else has made it. You never know if the first taste was not made well. It took me YEARS to finally like okra. LOL I kept trying them all different ways. Turns out I DO like them - but only pickled.
  2. Shhhhhh! Please don't bring up the Yacht Club. It is hard enough to secure space as it is. Please, everyone, just disregard the last post! 🤣
  3. No. No. You totally misunderstood my post and I apologize to those who did. I was referring to a recent post where someone announced their departure. Simply that. I LOVE that we all have different opinions and that we can voice them here. What does irritate me is the drama. Why is it necessary? Did I misunderstand that post?
  4. Right? Not only that but there is no need to announce your departure. If you don't like the ship, the vibe, the marketing, the lack of drink packages, the square footage of the closets, the material the bed linens are made from, the shade of red used for the promotional materials - WHATEVER- and you've decided you no longer want to sail on this line - just go. Be well. Enjoy the things you enjoy. Move on. (Reminds me of the people who announce their departure from their Facebook accounts. Why? Stop posting. There. Done. No drama.) I have no idea if I will really love it or hate it, so we're giving it a try, but if there were things I knew I would not enjoy then why stay and make an announcement. I rather like that it is a truly unique product. There are so many generic, "made for everyone" cruises these days. We'll see. I'm interested in seeing the reviews after a couple of months of sailing. That will give us more real world information.
  5. We won't know for sure until they start sailing, but maybe that is exactly the type of cruiser they want - the ones who wouldn't blink an eye at paying New York hip and trendy pricing for as many drinks as they want each day. There are many types of people in the world and there is a hat for every head, so we will see. It can't be all things for all people - too many cruise lines are doing that these days and it is just so generic and boring. We've booked a 4 nighter and we will either LOVE it or it will be the first and last time we sail, but we're open to finding out what it is all about. I'm OK with not loving it and leaving it for folks who do. Can't wait to find out.
  6. Hello - I have friends who are supposed to leave on the NCL Bliss this Saturday but the wife can't go at the last minute. The husband is still going (they have friends going in other cabins) - I read somewhere that they shouldn't cancel for her because of supplements added to cancellations but will they still get her taxes etc refunded if she's a no-show and doesn't formally cancel? No insurance on the booking. I would really appreciate information from those who have experienced this and not just informed guesses. Thanks so much in advance!
  7. Good to hear! We board her in Southampton. Can't wait. It took a lot to book a different cruise line. MSC Yacht Club has spoiled us. Unfortunately, more people are catching on, prices are rising and cabins are hard to get. It will be our 4th MSC YC cruise in almost as many years. We've done the forward facing cabin as well. The views are great but I much prefer the aft.
  8. We are also booked on this sailing. Our friends, another couple, will be joining us. We each booked a "Sweet Aft Suite - Biggest Terrace". We prefer aft cabins. What a wonderful view. Looking forward to it - it is going to be awhile!
  9. I feel like they would make a TON of money on quality temporary tattoos. I have a permanent tattoo but wouldn't dream of getting one on a cruise!
  10. Call it what you will, my money is on LOADS of complainers on the VV boards who didn't bother to research before booking. I often wonder how people like that get around in the world, but they do, surprisingly. It will be entertaining reading for sure.
  11. YES!! The Virgin Voyages Pearl Society. 😁
  12. Pearl clutching outrage - SPOT ON!
  13. You will have a FABULOUS birthday!
  14. We were considering it but decided to get a suite in September and save the extra few thousand dollars. I'm sure he and his VIP guests will have staff falling all over themselves to impress them, have venues, restaurants, lounges closed for VIP parties etc. I would rather have the staff trying to impress me. I'm making it all up in my head, of course, but just the possibility, the weather and the extra savings made us book in September. I hope I am very wrong and truly hope it is EXTRA special for those who book it!
