  1. Well, the thing is, there are Caribbean cruises scheduled for Jan-Apr of 2021 on HAL's website. All of the other cruise lines are taking reservations for fall/winter 2021. Plus, HAL is offering cruises to Europe, S America, Panama Canal, Hawaii and Mexico for Nov 2021... but no Caribbean.
  2. I have been waiting to book a Caribbean cruise for Nov 2021. Still no cruises listed on HAL website. Anyone know what is going on?
  3. Thank you all so much for your replies,,, I feel much better. I don't know how to pull a quote from another thread, but post #30 from "Thoughts about Suites" is what worried me: "Luminae on Equinox last year was wonderful. However, with the terrible new menus, it seems that Miami has changed the serving process in Luminae. Just finishing up a 10 day cruise in the Penthouse on the Reflection. Luminae was very poor. EXTREMELY slow service. Seems they have cut the staff. The “runner” who used to get orders from the kitchen no longer exists. The waiters now do it. Hostess is now cleaning and resetting tables. maitre’d was serving bread. Makes for a very slow service. Along with the new menus, Luminae is no longer worth visiting. " On second look, I see that the second Luminae experience mentioned is on the Reflection, so there's that. Anyway, from all of the above reassurances, I will put my fears to rest.
  4. OK, I guess I wasn't very clear. I've seen the actual menus, but I was looking for opinions about recent dining experiences with the new menus. Quality of food, quality of service. That's a helpful link, though. Thanks.
  5. We have booked our first suite ever (a Sky Suite) on the Equinox mainly for the Luminae experience. I saw a post recently that reported the new menus (starting in Oct 2019?) are not nearly as good as the previous menus. Now I am having second thoughts about spending all the extra money if the Luminae dining experience is a victim of more cost-cutting. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
  6. OK, so I am the OP and am on the Reflection and there was NO prime rib in the MDR on the first night. It was on night 3 ad will be on the last night. What a surprise. So we went to Tuscan the first night to get the discount,
  7. Thanks everybody... that helps with my dining plans.
  8. Can anyone on Reflection tell me if the MDR still serves prime rib on night 1? Will be on in 7 days!! Thanks.
  9. Is the dining trio package (2 specialty dinners and one lunch) for $100 available onboard? Or does it have to be purchased online ahead of time. Thanks
  10. Does anyone have a guess when the fall-winter 2021 Caribbean schedule will be released? Thanks
