  1. My wife loves Pelligrino, and has several per day. That helps justify the upgrade! 🙂 However, to the OP's point, there is a decent selection in the Classic Beverage Package, we just get more satisfaction of the Premium package options.
  2. Murano for sure! We dined 2x on our Silhouette cruise, and absolutely loved it. On a different cruise on the Constellation, we went to Tuscan on an evening when they were featuring their seafood night. Lots of food for sure, but kind of "meh". However I do know others love Tuscan. You cannot go wrong with Murano.

    Thank you, I realize this was 2 years ago. We are on Oceania Riviera with a stop here in June 2022, and was wondering what there was to do. Looking at ship tours as well (and may see if a private variation can be had).
  4. Agree! Sometimes I read a review, and I am like....whaaaaaaatttt????
  5. New to Oceania here (first sailing is 6/2022), but have been on Celebrity most recently (3 cruises), and MSC (out of Florida). I love to read the reviews, but have decided to "balance" what I read there versus actual board forums. Many reviews seem to be written by people who can't wait to get off the ship and write about a bad experience. I think I heard that regardless of the product, many more people will write bad reviews whereas the people who were happy will not write a review. My DW and I always board with the anticipation of a great cruise, and that expectation has alw
  6. Good information! Will be on Riviera in June 2022, and our group of 3 (me, DW, and SIL) are early coffee/tea drinkers. 🙂
  7. We were on Connie in November 2019 for a Venice-Rome (Italy/Dalmatian Coast) cruise. The prior ship we were on before that cruise was the Silhouette, which is gorgeous, of course! Yes, this is an "older" ship, however we did not see any deferred maintenance, and she was very clean, per usual Celebrity standards. The only thing she didn't have was all of the "latest and greatest" options, including he additional specialty restaurants. We felt the food quality was the same as our prior Silhouette cruise. I would not hesitate to sail her again.
  8. We ate here on the Silhouette in 2018. Thought it was very good, and the meats were well prepared. The portions were huge. Definitely would share the appetizers. We were offered this at a discounted price, and would probably do it again.
  9. Have to agree with others about the escargot. You can have it every night in the main dining room. The food, in general, is a step up from many other lines. It's too bad the Millennium does not have Murano, as the S-class ships have.
  10. Loved our 2017 Infinity Pacific Coastal cruise with the SF overnight!
  11. Yes, that should be fine. But, I always like to bring at lest a couple of long-sleeve button down dress shirts for Evening Chic. Yes, shirts with patterns are ok.
  12. Our experience on 3 cruises - Pacific Coastal, ABC Islands, and Mediterranean...have all been the same menus. This is speaking from 2017 through 2019, though. However, it was all good. We did not mind the repetition.
  13. Agree! We've purchased on board, but usually from a bartender (Martini Bar). They give us fantastic service all cruise long!
