Going again tonight one last time because he will be making that infamous Calamari Pizza and will ask for his name and report back to you all on here.
ST: do find out his name and ask him if he learned from Jerry! Rosburgh is right and i am a huge pizza fan also. I usually love gourmet pizzas of all types and particularly the calamari but Jerry's crust is so good that the thin crust pizza he makes with just tomato and cheese is like eating candy! This guy needs to teach the recent patio grill people on Quest and Odyssey. Maybe you can find out a little of his background. Thanks.

Just came back from the Patio Grill and the guy's name here onboard is Arnold who BTW, Jerry did teach him as well. I made it a point to mention this guy to the Hotel Manager that it is the BEST tasting PIZZA I have ever had on land and/or sea for thin crust Pizza. This new guy is Philippino and puts so much passion and love when he makes these pizzas you can see he enjoys what he does honestly.

Yes, you are right....maybe that is next step. I complained (nicely) a few times and then gave up because I could see they just didn't get it. The lady that was in charge of the Patio Grill tried to please, but....I quit saying anything because I know she cringed when she saw me coming. If they have two fixed, maybe there is hope!! Seabourn, are you listening????? (I do wonder how it will be on the smaller ships...I haven't been on one since "Jerry" but it's coming. It would be a great signature for all the ships.

Are the pizzas available on the smaller triplets or just the newer trio?

What is your work-a-day occupation that you can spend so much time on Seabourn? We who are green with envy would love to know.

purpleally;

For the first cruise May 4th, 8 days I booked a CAT SA on a GTY and the May 12th cruise I booked a CAT V1 on a GTY because the CAT's A's, A1's and V1's were all the same price and I got my cabin assignment yesterday and they were very kind too me again and kept me in the same cabin for both cruises and upgraded me to a CAT V6 Midship!

Sure, we should meet and have a drink!

As I would say " I do as little as possible" with a straight face on!
I can do my work anywhere providing that I have a satelite connection and telephony as well.

You can get the same pizza's sort of on the Triplets but only a Pizza Margherrita from Room Service which is thin crust as well but not baked in the same kind of Pizza Overn's as they have on the larger Ships.

Default Day 15: Arrival Barcelona, Spain

Day 15: Arrival Barcelona, Spain

Good mroning for one last time from "Sleepy Seabourn Sqaure" here on the Sojourn. We have just taken our pilot onboard out here past the breakwaters of Barcelona and are making our way ever so slowly towards the city coastline. We are scheduled to dcok at the International Trade Centre instead of the Port of Barcelona or Puerto Adosado (where all the cruiseships berth).

Kevin just handed me my last choclate muffin and double espresso americano for the last time (well at least not for the next 7 days). The weather forecast for Barcelona is calling for 40% chance of rain and high of 22C or 72F. Let's hope that changes.

Will be going up for breaskfast by 8:00am and getting off the ship by 9:30am and heading to our Hotel.

More to come later this morning from the Sojourn about to arrive in the beautiful city of Barcelona.

Default Arrival, Barcelona

Arrival, Barcelona;

We have just arrived and are now tied up alongside our pier here in front of the International Trade Centre right beside the W Hotel which I can see in the background from Seabourn Square windows. The sun is just starting to rise here in Barcelona and I hope the weather forecast is wrong!

I have been informed that everyone needs to be off the ship by no later than 9:30am since they are turning the ship over to the Charter clients Sanofi-Aventis for 10:00am.

More to come later this morning here in Barcelona, Spain on the Sojourn in our final hours onboard.
