Thank you in advance.

Music is as personal as dining.  

Yes, taste in music is a personal preference - just like many other things. It is impossible to please everyone - especially when the group is large and of various ages.

Then there are those of us who were NEVER into rock ... it doesn't have to be a matter of age ...

Last cruise on Nov 15th, it was Freddy - not sure of last name.  Very personable and approachable.  Maybe Orv can ask if Freddy is still on.

Actually I was doing it from memory, instead of looking at the sheet.

I think it's the same one, but I thought his name was Farid. But then we see how my memory is. 

 

One thing I didn't mention is that the tenders now have curtains and matching cushions on the seats. When we were on Marina they didn't have this, maybe part of the refurb. 

 

They also have introduced the new menu at Waves, as of yesterday . I'll  post a picture later. There is also a grill with skewers and other things, as well as a table of sandwiches and salads.

Are the sandwiches pre-made or made to order?

I personally have a problem with pre-made ones as they often contain tomatoes and they cannot be simply removed (unlike, say, lettuce could be). Hence, made to order sandwiches would be much more preferable to me.

This makes me happy.  Hope they roll it out on Marina too this week.

but the difference with food and music is that you are never really forced to consume food (I hope) and there are choices, but piped music leaves you with forced consumption with no choice

Premade

not fond of premade sandwiches either

I guess it depends on how long they sit  there waiting  for someone to pick them

And what kind of sandwich? The bread can get soggy quite easily.

Unlike Paul, I like tomatoes. However, I dislike totally unripened ones, so therefore would rather see them first before deciding to take them!

 

We’re only aboard for lunch on sea, and the GDR is open. Starving is never an option on Oceania!😂

Well, we'll find out in 5 days.  It's entirely possible they will screw it up, I'll wait 5 days to find out.  I like fine dining as much as anyone else, but one of my main beefs with lunch is that..." sometimes all you want is a ham sandwich"*.  I did not like the little sandwich slices they had in the Terrace.  Or baristas for that matter.  Or the Concierge lounge.

 

*with acknowledgement to Mark M.

Shh, now don't tell anyone...but when we were on the 100 pax Hurtigruten ship in March, a couple of times I took a slice or two of meat and cheese from their breakfast buffet and made a sandwich for my lunch! (Who is Mark M.?)

Oh no. As is typical outside the US, breakfast buffets frequently have meats and cheeses. But they didn't have them at lunch and I didn't always want a 'hot' lunch. I think I did it twice. Our dining stewards liked the idea 🙂

Freddy is the restaurant manager, not F&B.    Very nice man.
