  1. Yes that's true. They are paid a salary on top of their tips. Chief stew Kate Chastain earns between $62,000 and $75,000. Not bad for that kind of work.
  2. That's exactly what I thought. Some kids now a days don't know what it is like to really work hard. If I was 25 again, I would do it in a heartbeat. The fact that they are getting $1100-$2000 in tips for 3 days is mind blowing. I would not mind scrubbing the deck in the Caribbean for that kind of money.
  3. From what I have researched that's not the case. Read this about behind the scenes. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/29/style/below-deck-bravo.html Never the less there is some very uncomfortable drama that occurs between the crew that can make it hard to watch.
  4. I have succumbed to reality television watching "Below Deck" on Bravo TV. The million dollar yachts, incredible locations such as the Caribbean, Tahiti, Thailand and the chef cooking amazing food draws me but the drama of the crew keeps me coming back for more. I've watched "Below Deck" Seasons 1-7 and now on "Below Deck Mediterranean." I have also found I have learned a lot about boat terminology, and just what it takes to run a yacht of that size. Very interesting stuff plus you get a train wreck of a crew.
  5. It wasn't t-shirts or trinkets for me but my bottle of Blanton's bourbon that I got at the duty free shop on board. It made my suitcase overweight and cost me $75 making it $150 bottle of bourbon.
  6. @TuomasV Thank you. I am interested in good champagne but more importantly my love for good bourbon's and whiskeys.
  7. First time looking into Sea Dream. I understand that most cocktails are included in your fare but that there is a top shelf liquor menu and at additional cost. Any one have a screen shot of that menu that I could see? I'm curious to what whiskey, bourbon and cognac are on that menu and approximate costs. Thank you for helping me out as I could not find any information on their website.
  8. I wonder if this has something to do with Royal getting in the resort business and not just doing cruises?
  9. @chengkp75Thank you for your input. I was hoping to hear from you on this,
  10. I'd be curious how many people does it take to run the ship without passengers? I'm not sure how many officers, engineers, maintenance, cooks and medical they have to have as a minimum.
  11. Allianz has several year round policies. We just get their one trip insurance per cruise. You can see more of their "All Trips Prime" here. https://www.allianztravelinsurance.com/find-a-plan/alltrips-prime.htm
  12. I couldn't agree more @twangster. All the speculation and Monday morning quarterbacking does no good. Your spot on assessment of these simple facts are the root cause.
  13. and that he has to eat in his cafeteria (kitchen??) I never heard someone refer to their kitchen that way. How big is his kitchen? Windjammer size???
  14. We flew in Orlando, and stayed at the Radisson at the Port which picked us up at the airport. It worked out great.
