  1. Here ya go - the curtain covers well I believe.
  2. Yep that's how they did it with us - when they asked if there was anything I don't eat I jokingly said "Broccoli" (I mean, I don't like it but I can eat it) and sure enough, there was a course that had a filling that normally contained broccoli but the chef made mine with something else. It was delicious. I tried a bit of my wife's regular preparation and it was delicious too. Chef's table is pretty amazing.
  3. That's pretty much exactly what he said the week before last on the FFS#3 cruise during a Q&A session. Side note: It was a terrific cruise and we really enjoyed meeting him. 🙂
  4. I don't wear pants to elegant night either - I wear my kilt!
  5. there's a whole youtube video dedicated just to picking the right cabin. Of course, it is based on the guy who did the video's preferences but he does point out some things that would be useful no matter what your preferred area is. Not sure if it's allowed to link to it here but it's by a guy called Cruiseadmiral. (If this gets deleted then we'll figure some other way to get you the info)
  6. They did that last week on the Conquest. It was a quick run-through but they did it. I want to say it was on the second elegant night but I don't remember for sure. It was delicious too!
  7. Thanks! I'll definitely be looking for this in February.
  8. Dewars eh? not my favorite blend but technically it is part of the family (See my Buchanan tartan avatar). I will look for this in February on the Conquest.
  9. bad money has stripper sweat and cocaine on it. I mean, so I've heard...
  10. ahh well that explains it. I had read it was something to do with travel agency backing the site but didn't know who it was.
  11. I'm one of the ones that has a PVP who answers emails - he's never more than a few minutes usually but it could go up to half a day if I ask him something at a weird hour late at night. We've talked on the phone too but I like email best and he accommodates that.
  12. Well I am happy for you left-coasters but we'll miss the Miracle here in Florida. I'm glad we got to sail on her out of Tampa. Love the ship. And now I'm even more interested in possible Alaska cruises - I have no frame of reference as I've never been farther west than Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas but I feel like I would love to do an Alaska cruise (already on our bucket list) out of San Francisco.
  13. yeah, I-4 to Tampa is a mess. We live in Orlando and I think we got on the Miracle out of Tampa about the same time we got on Conquest out of Fort Lauderdale - both times driving down day of cruise. We'll be driving to port of Miami next February but I'm seriously thinking about going down a day early this time. I've been in Miami traffic before but not to cruise so not sure how bad it will be on a Saturday in that area. It's pretty bad the rest of the time everywhere else though...
  14. That's what we do too - my wife needs the extension cord by the bed for her CPAP. And I have a pretty long cord for my phone so we can lay in bed at night and charge phones and still use them.
  15. If all five of you are in the same cabin then yes, both of the adults must buy it but if you have the kids in one room and the adults in another AND you don't want to buy 2 packages, just book one adult in a cabin with a couple kids and the other adult in the other cabin with the rest of the kids and then only one of you has to buy the package. They do not care which of the cabins anyone sleeps in but for Cheers purposes it only counts which adults are booked where. You can go to guest services to get extra room keys. You still cannot share the package but at least it's only half price.
