  1. This post came at the perfect time. We booked last minute cruise leaving July 27 and this helped answer a lot of our questions, thank you!
  2. What is it with cruiseship pies? I have yet to find a decent apple pie and have been on Royal, Norwegian and Disney. However surprisingly the Carnival desserts seem to be better, good apple crisp on the buffet. But the food, not so much.....
  3. Well we cruised in Feb and sorry to say Tandoor is indeed gone, we were very disappointed. Not there is no Indian food at all except a veg option at dinnertime. Nothing on the small buffet either. You could request a special meal in the dining room the night before but that’s it.
  4. Glad to hear this. Especially since there are usually a lot of Indian employees on board, the Indian cruise ship food is usually pretty good.
  5. So for us the dining room breakfast and Sea Day brunch was fast, almost too fast. They were wanting to take the order almost right after we sat down. Funny how we all have different experiences.
  6. We sailed the Breeze last month and the dining room is open every day, Sea day brunch on sea days. The food was a lot better in the dining room, we didn’t like the buffet much. Always ridiculous lines.
  7. Pig n anchor, it was also open on at least one of our port days because we ran over there around 11:15 and ate before leaving the ship for St.Thomas.
  8. I loved the jewel toned colors throughout the ship, Spinnaker lounge and Martini bar. The lounge is at the front of the ship with big glass floor length windows, beautiful to watch that Alaska landscape go by. We enjoyed the Indian food on the buffet too. I have a full review posted if you go to my profile.
  9. Ahhh the casino. My hubby (the gambler) said payouts were awful, but I realize that is also luck of the draw. He seems to do better on NCL in general. Someone on the cruise did win $12,000 on slots though. The casino sent us a plate of good cookies and a coupon to order items off the steakhouse menu in the MDR. At the end of the cruise they gave us a casino rate of 35% off a future cruise. The kicker is that it had to be booked by March 19. The NCL program seems to be much better, I can just call them at any time and see what we qualify for on any given cruise. No date restrictions or booking due dates.
  10. Passengers? I was pleasantly surprised, lots of families and a wide array of ages. From babies to seniors and everything in between. Like I said, didn’t see any bad behavior. There are usually a few on each ship regardless of the cruise line but we didn’t see anything this time. I would not travel the college spring break time (March) on any line, I assume you will see lots of drunk 18-21 year olds.
  11. That's good to hear! I think trying different cruise lines is important so you know what you are getting for your money and to see what you like and is most important. Everyone has different tastes. We really hated the lines but we still had fun.
  12. I have only been on Royal once in 2013 (Brilliance of the Sea) but my parents cruise with Royal more usually the mega ships.
  13. I want to try MSC and the pizza! How did you like the cruise?
