  1. Well 4-Star and 5- Star Mariners do not get to eat breakfast in the Pinnacle Grille unless they paid for a Neptune or Penthouse suite. We are 4-Star Mariners and we get a Neptune suite.
  2. To "Miss G" ... People could be in the cheapest cabin on the ship and pay for Club Orange ... not nearly as much as people paid for a Neptune or Penthouse suite. So should they get the same perks? No. I recently took a Queen Mary 2 cruise where all dining venues are based on what you paid for your cabin ... not "social strata" ... but what you paid. Those paying the most dined in the best restaurant.

  4. Question: So HAL is not changing the Pinnacle breakfast on the Nieuw Amsterdam? Good to hear! Love the Pinnacle. We eat there every night.
  5. Prior, ANYONE who paid for a Neptune Suite was offered breakfast in the Pinnacle ... a perk for paying hundreds of dollars more for a cabin. If we're paying $8000 for a Neptune Suite it was something nice HAL did for us.
  6. Yes, whoever wrote the reply is correct. The wonderful Pinnacle Grill is still there (yay!) and open for lunch and dinner on the Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam but suite guests now eat breakfast at Club Orange. I'm always in a Neptune Suite so I, personally, hate this change. Club Orange is not elegant like the Pinnacle and you're with a bunch of people who probably just paid for Club Orange. In actuality, Club Orange is where the Culinary Arts Center restaurant was (which tanked). Rumor has it they are going to offer Club Orange on all the ships ... don't know on the older ships if suite guests will still get to eat breakfast in the Pinnacle.
  7. It does not replace it (we are 4-star Mariners) but Neptune suites guests can no longer eat breakfast in the Pinnacle Grill on the three new ships. I hate this! We always get a suite and love this perk. The Club Orange dining venue was not nearly as nice as the Pinnacle Grill .. more like a cafe.
  8. They have no choice! No longer is breakfast served in the Pinnacle Grill for Neptune Suite guests. A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT FOR SUITE GUESTS. The Club Orange venue served a decent breakfast but was nothing out of the ordinary. The location has huge glass windows where people are walking by. The room service menu only has a few additions. Hate this change.
  9. We DID NOT like Club Orange at all. We pay extra money for a Neptune Suite and so enjoyed are breakfasts in the Pinnacle Grille. This cafe is far inferior.
  10. I TOTALLY disagree. As a Neptune Suite guest one of the nicest perks was having a quiet breakfast (just for suite guests) in the Pinnacle dining room. Now we have to eat in Club Orange -- a very casual cafe built where another restaurant flopped. And now others who pay for "Club Orange" are added to the mix. As a 4-Star Mariner I am not pleased with this change.
  11. The Club Orange dining venue is not that great.
  12. For those who have taken this cruise from Amsterdam ... how long does it take to leave the ship and get to the airport? What is the earliest flight you could make?
  13. We will be on the QM2 to Canada/New England on September 8. Will there be two themed balls? Which ones? How do I find out this information ... can't find it on Cunard's website. Thanks!
