  1. You got a fantastic deal for 14 days in the YC. I predict that you will be more than pleased with MSC Yacht Club. Bon Voyage!
  2. No one here has mentioned anything about potable water. The theme of this thread is the shutdown of the vacuum toilets.
  3. Getting back to the original theme... The last thread I read that involved a water shut down was the result of some moron pax who had flushed a wash cloth down the toilet. Most of these shut downs are from stupid pax flushing the wrong things into the system.
  4. I don’t believe we have ever seen a report here on CC that denied YC benefits when pax received an upgrade. Correct me if I am wrong.
  5. Safe travels home Bea and all the best to Mr. Bea.
  6. There were exceptions to the bland buffets. The Germans (Hapag Lloyd) had a Gala Buffet once a week and it was spectacular. There was lobster, prime roast beef, smoked pork, crab legs, all forms of German delicatessen and Buluga Caviar. When Regent Sea first set up business they had Apollo Catering and they put out a weekly Gala Buffet that included a 150 lb roast pig as well as all the best beef, sea food and poultry...a true extravaganza and really good to eat. They also had themed buffets throughout the week and they were all excellent. Their deli buffet was stellar. They had homemade corned beef, roast brisket, pastrami, chopped liver and much more. Even Chandris Line had super buffets when their Celebrity Line was first started. They had very fancy offerings that were high quality and delicious. Our dietary and nocturnal habits changed so the midnight buffets disappeared.
  7. If it’s great burgers you want then you must try R.F. O’Sullivan’s on Beacon Street. They are truly legendary. They will give Frankie the O’Sullivan treatment.
  8. Frank, LOL...LOL...LOL... I had the same thought...lol. Hi Bea, hang In there things are bound to get better. Glad to hear Mr. Bea is on the mend.
  9. Dear Bea, We all hope that Mr. Bea will be up and around soon. Sending you best wishes and good thoughts.
  10. Hmmmmmmm...me thinks that Bea just kept pouring the Veuve.😜
  11. Hi GK, I love to cruise but I find my cup is full after 14-16 days. Too much of a good thing I guess. I have never wanted to go on a world cruise but would have no problem with a segment.
  12. Hi Bea, I am so J-E-L-L-O...you are onboard Cview. And then you have the audacity to tell me you are in the TSL wasting everything down with the Veuve! ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!! At any any rate I am in my captain’s chair and rambling along with you...😊 BON VOYAGE BEA AND MR. BEA!
  13. BRAVO Fox...well said and so true. A reasonable person should be able to figure out that the dishwashers, cleaners, food prep people and maintenance people are the ones who work 12-16 hours a day for months at a time. Many of these people are the prime earners for their families and elders at home. Unfortunately, where some here are concerned, you are whistling into the wind.
  14. I start crying “UNCLE” after 14 days!
  15. It all depends on the line you are going to sail. Some of the evening buffets are very good. I have friends of mine who sailed on Oceania and never went into the MDR. They preferred dining in the buffet every day and night. I know other friends who did the same on Princess.
