Welcome aboard goodies

 

It's a long way down here

So I get why they stock it up cases at a time

But the nefarious side of me wonders if this isn't the crew hoard for the drydock

 

We got fresh snacks as well

I requested the cherry peppers. They are really good

Berries came while we were at lunch

FWIW, I was hoping to gt some more food for sail away, but Jay said they aren't doing that anymore.

No more room service on day 1 before 5:30

Seems odd, but I didn't push it

Believe you me, Mario Envy exists as well.😉

 

Some Pins are just unpleasant. I try and not be.

Mr. loyal to Royal Pin on Deck 17 has eight more days to be grumpy about this cruise before the next one, and the next...

Not yet, I'm sure Mr 1750 wishes there were.

 

Need to find out what cabin he's in and thank him for the kind words last night.

I’m thinking most of those boxes would be or should be checked off

I’m curious wondering what cabin type Mr 1750 resides, for research reference only.

I'll try and dive into all that later, so lets shelve that for a while

You must ask for Stoli Elite.  Let your Genie know and ask to speak to the beverage manager.  They took very good care of me on Symphony and they should take good care of you as well.  Ask them to stock these items in the bars you frequent and they will do it.

I may know who you are talking about.  There's talk of someone who made a big scene in CK over this.

I do need to stop by VOOM desk and see why I can't do two logins. I should have one for being in a suite and one for being Pinnacle.

 

Curious how this works out, two accounts or two device plan or sorry no can do.  Let us know.  In theory two accounts is against their terms and conditions but those may not apply to *.

Now for Top Tier and the lunch/dinner, they may have multiple times in order to fit the hordes of members eligible

 

There are different times.  My top tier for example is earlier on the same day.

I wish they would just add Kahlua already. Its no more expensive than Baileys, and there are generic alternatives.

I've had it in Schooner, but thanks

I’ve never done a TA.  Why do they change time at noon instead of during the night?  We did the Vancouver to Hawaii repositioning and they changed at night.  Is it just some tradition?

Usually at noon eastbound, midnight westbound (gain an hour of sleep).

So the crew doesn't lose an hour of sleep.

This looks like an apartment I live in and pay 1800$ a month. 😞 incredible suite. How many people does it fit? Maybe I should just spend all my life cruising? Find a work on board and just stay in the seas? 🙂 I dont think they got many cabins like this one on board. Probably for newly wed only

You're getting a DEAL!! This suite probably costs in excess of $1800 PER NIGHT! 😆

Stopped by VOOM desk and they made my account a 2 device plan.

 

FWIW, we had 5 VOOM letters in the suite

2 each for Laura and I, plus 1 for Patrick.

I agree this is for the benefit of the crew.  But it is ultimately “Captain’s Choice”.

 

On this twelve day the timing of the clock change may not be as much of a bid deal since the changes are more split up.  But on a seven day crossing it is more critical.  Crew losing an hour of sleep 4 or 5 days in a row is hard on the body! Katherine

It's my understanding that Pinnacles can only reserve 3 nights in CK due the large number onboard.  This was also done on the recent 50th birthday cruise on Symphony
