Not true. There are plenty of folks who expect the food to be "gourmet" on a cruise. And not being disappointed in that respect is one of the main reasons people choose Oceania.
Which line recommended for great complimentary food, not so dressy, 2 seniors?
If you want truly great food (i.e., a cruise line built on its reputation for the "best food at sea") and no "prom nights," join the many former Celebrity cruisers who have joined the Oceania family....
Dress Code for dinner
So - here's a new twist on this discussion.
We are currently on Insignia and in port at Pago Pago, Samoa.

We generally take "longer" cruises of 3 weeks plus. The several TAs we use will always add significant "value" to the cruise line's best deal - often in the form of complimentary gratuities, onboard...

You are correct that the "book onboard" cruise goes to the TA who booked the current cruise UNLESS you sign a form booking it to yourself. Then you have the 30 days to shop around for a TA transfer....

A number of folks will book themselves onboard O or during an O promotion (e.g., a holiday flash sale) and then shop their cruise around to several TAs to find one who will best sweeten the deal.

Okay - so, note to OP:
Instead of the sea bass in Red Ginger, go for the Crispy Duck/Watermelon Salad. I've yet to meet anyone who didn't love it.

Place to Stop and Stay overnight enroute from Sacramento to Long Beach

I don't know. I'm pretty sure that Connoisseurs Club is individuals rather than overall agencies.
