  1. When I first read the initial post I thought “how silly”! But when I think about it.. if you are not outgoing it is really difficult to start a convo with a stranger It’s probably similar to thinking ... what do you mean you can’t swim? Just get in the water, spin your arms and kick yer legs! Then that water splashes you in the eye so you get scared and get out of the pool as quickly as you can! i was shy until I was given one little gem of advice. Don’t worry about what people think of you.. because the irony is they are only worrying about what you think of them!!! Do your own thing first and make sure you are interesting to yourself you want a friend... ? get down early to get a good seat at the quiz or the show. people will want to join you. Go to the dance lesson. Sit at the bar with a soda. Smile at people. Say I like your dress... if you see them again say Hi, another lovely outfit!

    Does "All inclusive Bar" have a $ limit? if it does not, why would a person want to upgrade from that to the Premium Package which does have a limif of $10 on it? thanks for posting. I hope you are having a great holiday.

    Thanks for the great review and photos. Looks like you had a great time! You can’t have a drink in the theatre though!!! I never knew that! Still, the shows are short or so I believe! So I will manage haha! Thanks again.

    What is take away ice cream in a cone or cup? Is that the gelato people keep talking about?
  7. I had a piece of golden triangle... never knew it was called that. yummy. I stole it off my husbands plate! haha! I cant imagine they are very healthy... but for there to be "healthy choice" there has to be things that aren't healthy. that's just logical. I had an omlette in the MDR. wouldn't order one of them again mind. tiny one egg effort. 3 mouthfuls and it was gone :(

    Main Stream compared to Luxury Class

    I see where you are coming from cruisemom. This is why it’s difficult to say what is value and what isn’t. From my perspective, the Med is WAY overpriced . But that’s because I live in Europe and can get to Rome etc very cheaply. Also, there is the fact that when something is on your doorstep and you have been there too many times you get bored of it and don’t see it as others do? Then sticker shock kicks in when you see prices have doubled in the last year on Med itineraries! No doubt people who live in Fort Lauderdale or Miami etc think the same and wonder why I get so excited about going to Nassau and wonder why it is such a big thing for me? But purely from a bottom line price perspective, itinerary aside, I was very surprised to see The low price on Regent.

    We had a brochure come through the post yesterday. You can fly Uk Miami have a 14night full AI Cruise, veranda suite. Drinks, private transfers, 2 nights in coral gables WiFi, dining, your trips, grats for 3 and a half grand. Regent Seven Seas Voyager Or or you can have the NCL AI package on the Jade 11 night fly UK Rome then round Europe in June for 3 and a half grand. Depends what you want from your ship I guess

    Park West art auctions?

    These things used to be good fun when they used to have raffles. I remember one time I won a day in the spa, a key ring, a t shirt a photo of the ship, a casino match play and a few other things. now they keep you prisoner for ages and bang on and on about the ”Painter of Light” AKA Thomas Kinkade, the wonder that is Peter Max, and then there is great excitement when they bring out the painting of the tree.... you can hang this upside down and it’s a different tree!! Havent done a decent raffle raffle in I don’t know how long. If you are lucky you might get a picture of a lion or something. I do enjoy them though for the people watching experience!!! (when I studied art history we were told the painter of light was Rembrandt!).

    Mandatory Tipping ant

    Quite agree. Avoidance is not Evasion. I live on an island that is powered by tax avoidance schemes! I think that’s why I found it funny.

    Mandatory Tipping ant

    So basically it’s a tax avoidance scheme! Haha!

    MSC status match

    MSC status match

    I do think the “welcome back” type events should be kept to those who are actually coming back. I see black card holders get a free dance lesson? I can already dance... I will give 2 dance lessons for a chocolate ship if anybody wants to trade!
