    Louis Cruises Greek Islands

    My husband and I were married on the NCL Leeward (now Louis Cristal) and are thinking about taking a Greek 7 day cruise on it in either 2015 or 2016 for our 20th Anniv. We loved the size of the Leeward and it was the first cruise for both of us. (We got married late in life(51/43) - first marriage for both of us though). Has anyone done the Greek cruise on the Cristal.
  2. [quote name='cruisenfever']Here is a link to a wonderful dining chart that was made up by one of our very talented CC Members [URL="https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8K45qWkduXcc190WU5GcGRQZE0/edit?usp=sharing"]https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8K...it?usp=sharing[/URL] It indicates which dining venues are Casual and Smart Casual with The Grande Restaurant being the only Formal venue.[/quote] Want to thank the person who did the dining chart. It is great. Just what one needs to get through this arduous task. Didn't like Norwegian when they went to freestyle. Back then it wasn't very free if I have to make reservations and plan ahead. At least they have a large main dining room that you can go to without reservations if you want to take a chance. Dynamic dining doesn't seem as flexible. No large venue to have a nice dinner (Windjammer doesn't count):)
  3. We have been experiencing the same problem. We just asked him to clean our room earlier as we like to come back and nap. I also take sticky notes to leave on the bathroom mirror if I have anything I need. We don't always see him the first day so I leave the note when we leave for the Diamond Plus lounge.

    Lost Luggage

    Hi, I'm so sorry to hear about your lost bag. Guess it was good we had a stop you could get some more clothes at although it would have been much better if they had found your bag. We accidentally left one of our hard back bags locked and it arrived at BWI plastic wrapped. We haven't checked it out yet to see if the locks are actually broken or what is missing. Not much we can do about it probably.

    Upgrade Fairy Alive And Well

    [FONT=Fixedsys][SIZE=3][COLOR=Magenta]Hi, Wondering if you are celebrating anything special on this cruise. On our last cruise we had a honeymoon couple who got upgraded from a JS to Grand Suite.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  6. Hey Tuggers, You're on our cruise listing going out of Baltimore on the Grandeur on 30 Oct. Was looking forward to cruising with you again. Maybe next time.
  7. [quote name='PhoenixCruiser']Wow, I've been following that same thread and thought it was pretty negative, until her posts today anyways. ###[/quote] [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=DarkRed]Maybe negative in the problems she has had that aren't necessarily Brilliance related and when comparing it to Celebrity. I ignore food negatives because we are all different in our tastes and I still can't see paying extra to eat in a specialty restaurant.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  8. [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=DarkRed]Hi, I was on the Brilliance Transatlantic last April and I liked it. Royal Caribbean is our favorite cruise line. Debbie & Al[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  9. [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=DarkRed]Hi, The link below is being updated by someone who is currently on the Brilliance. So far she seems to be enjoying the Brilliance.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [COLOR=Blue] [url]http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=684437[/url] [/COLOR]
  10. Hi Gail, Sorry to hear about your luggage problem. Al and I really enjoyed the Brilliance on the Transatlantic cruise last April. Angel is great. Tell her we said hi (I crocheted her a scarf). Thanks for the great updates. Makes me anxious for our next cruise. Debbie & Al
  11. [quote name='Sky Sweet']This thread is about comparing Royal Caribbean to Celebrity, based on a poster's cruise on Grandeur of the Seas. Since Grandeur is an older ship in Royal Caribbean's fleet with less amenities and much smaller cabins than its newer ships, the posts which imply that Royal Caribbean provides an inferior cruise experience to Celebrity can be misleading. I was merely trying to point out the problem of comparing one ship in Royal Caribbean's fleet to Celebrity cruise line in its entirety because the ship itself is often more important than the cruise line.[/quote] [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=SeaGreen]So what did demographics have to do with it. You didn't clarify that statement. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  12. [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]Gail, Enjoyed your posts. Al and I were on this cruise and we enjoyed it. Had no dislikes. RCI is our favorite cruise line. We did a Celebrity cruise in 2002 and found no difference between the 2 cruise lines. We don't recall the cold towels. I found some pictures of you and your group that we took, I will email them to you.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
