Seventeen days too long for a cruise? I certainly don't think so.

We've enjoyed several in the 14/30 night range. We haven't gone longer, as the Missus does not want to be gone for more than 30...

I don't believe there is any call or need for compensation for the problem, as outlined.

I do think some people have an unreasonable sense of "entitlement".

The anchor dropped (released) on Ryndam was the stern anchor, and its machinery etc are aft, not on the foredeck.

Be that as it may, it was a restricted area, and a very dangerous "stunt".

Purser's Desk will make change, and I presume the Casino would also.

We've been on both Celebrity and Crystal.
