  1. We always looked forward to the last night dinner, which (in the GDR) typically featured roast turkey with the trimmings or Wiener schnitzel as entrees. My husband loved good roast turkey and really enjoyed it, but I don't know if all the purported changes have done away with this tradition. Donna
  2. Non issue. As you guessed, the unacceptable sandals are beach wear, especially flip flops. Dress sandals are fine. Donna
  3. I have long had a rule to step away from the boards for a while when it begins to influence me that heavily. And in 8 O cruises, I have never found it to be as horrible as some of the most dramatic reviews would say, just as it is probably never as fabulous as the most glowing reviews say. Take a breath, it will be okay. just my two cents worth. Donna
  4. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with bringing your Beverages into the restaurants from the bars. In fact, waitstaff are usually there with trays to assist you. What a nasty snipe. Donna
  5. Dredging up this old topic because i just received an email promotion for Canyon Ranch Spa for our Sirena cruise in January. My understanding from this thread was that CRS was "going away" at the end of the year. Has anyone heard anything different? The subject line read "Wellness at Sea During your 1/13/2020 Cruise." Confusedly yours Donna
  6. One more vote here for *not* eating in the Terrace. Did not like being shoved around by impatient and impolite people. The food was fine. The servers tried their best. But on every ship, every time, one trip to the Terrace was enough. It was the passenger behavior that became exasperating, Strictly my personal opinion, to each his/her own.
  7. Oh, come on! I love trivia, played on every one of our cruises, saw no blood. The only problem I saw was on our last cruise a team was openly using a cell phone to cheat, which is VERY aggravating. Sometimes there is sime teenager-like cattiness, but overall, fun! donna

  9. Cannot praise our TA highly enough! She has smoothed the way for us - and now, for me - in countless ways. I treasure her. Heartily endorse the advice to get a TA from the connoisseur club or whatever it is called. Donna
  10. This is inconceivable! There was always at least one sugar free ice cream selection per day. I cannot imagine this!
  11. We did this last year. Waiting for customs to clear us took a long time. Scheduled disembarkation was like 8 or 8:30, but we didn’t get close to the gangway until after 10. I think you might be cutting it close. Donna
  12. Marvelous review. It just made me happy to read it! Donna
  13. Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but concierge and above are entitled to hot breakfast on room service. It’s a nice touch!
  14. I thought I would never cruise again, but am so pleased to be on one of these Caribbean cruises in January on Sirena. I know it will be better than January in Illinois! Even if I just get to stroll around in the port areas, enjoy the string quartet and an occasional Big O Martini, and have a reunion with an old trivia teammate, it is worth it. The sweet memories of cruises with my late husband are a bonus. The prices are pretty sweet and I am ready to go! Dan, have fun in Barstow! 😎 Donna
