  1. I won't be shocked if it cancels. My only risk now is a $100 FCC deposit. I probably won't pay the final pay unless Hawaii sends the all clear signal. Lots can change in next 5 months. For better or worse. I am hoping for better!!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. How do you prepare your lamb chops? I have never done them at home. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. Thanks for the tip on Fleming's. I will have to pay them a visit!! The Tomahawk steak was $36 a pound in San Diego. Any idea what Costco charges? Has to be way less TOMAHAWK TUESDAY Join us every Tuesday for a 3-course meal for two featuring our 35 oz Prime Tomahawk*, two salads, two sides and two desserts | $135 https://www.flemingssteakhouse.com/promotions/tomahawk-tuesday Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. I may have to join Costco. I probably could have saved some money. Agree- Reverse sear is the best. More here https://www.seriouseats.com/2017/03/how-to-reverse-sear-best-way-to-cook-steak.html I also get good results with Sous Vide on smaller filets. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  7. I am a sucker for the giant Tomahawk "Presidents Cut" style steak. I couldn't resist buying this today at my local butcher shop. I know they don't serve this in the Pinnacle grill any longer, but that is where I had my first taste of this monster cut. Not sure how well I will be able to create the "home version" of the Pinnacle Grill, but I am going to give it a shot. I have the cook books!!!! Any other ideas for creating the "home version" of cruising? I am looking for "day of the week" door mats. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. We have a deposit on a Nov cruise to Hawaii from San Diego. Another on a Singapore to Tokyo Cruise next January. More booked next summer. Then the 2022 world cruise. Can't wait to get started again. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. We are also on this cruise. Great ship Great Itinerary!!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. We booked the Koningsdam for the 18 day San Diego to Hawaii RT on 3 November. I am confident we will sail with normal loading and traditional distancing. Your Mexico cruise in Dec should be fine. If not? Then I will book the next one We are ready to go. If they cancel. No big deal. It's not like I am using my rent money to go on cruises.

  11. My guess is they will cnx the 2021 world cruise and run the current 2021 itinerary in 2022. I am pretty optimistic but I think any cruise over 14 days will be considered high risk for a while. I suspect they will run more round trip "bubble" cruises in 2021 rather than long point to points. Probably nothing longer than 14 days. They need to think how they can better firewall their ships if there is another flare up. Might even restrict sailings to citizens of the departure port for a while. That way it would be harder for FLL to refuse entry if ship is 100pct US citizens. Or med cruises are nothing but EU citizens. Already hearing that Australia and NZ are building a travel bubble.

  12. I received my refunds in form of FCC - my choice- about 60 days after cnx I am all caught up. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. I agree, that would be perfect. When I was on my Crystal/Seabourn cruises, I wasn't taking full advantage of many of their wonderful offerings. I liked the formality on Cunard, but that is probably a bridge to far - I wonder if Cunard will be able to keep that tradition alive.
  14. I think that the old HAL may now be called Seabourn. I heard Orlando say once that if you want Seabourn sized ships be ready for Seabourn pricing. Nevertheless, I did one Seabourn cruise and while the smaller ship, unlimited beverages, bigger cabin and higher quality food per plate was superior to HAL, the individual service from HAL crewmembers, from the beverage staff to the waiters was superior on HAL. The mainstage on HAL is big enough to produce the shows I like and there are enough people to have some action in the Casino. Seabourn's small ship means a small stage and less extravagant shows. The casino on Seabourn was mostly empty and they didn't even have a poker table. I like the current HAL value proposition and find the ala carte pricing to meet my requirements. For those who prefer the old HAL, I would suggest Seabourn or Crystal - both very fine alternatives, albeit more expensive. As far as what to bring back? The HAL Cast production shows. I have seen them all, love them all and never miss a chance to see them once again.
  15. Can you confirm it was based on 100% of the base cruise fare?
