A regular yellow cab will do just fine but make sure the doorman at the hotel gets you a big one so that all of the luggage fits in the trunk and the backseat has enough leg room. Some of he newer...

I receive a pager at Panera Bread but never at a real restaurant that offers linen table service and menus. Cheapens the entire experience in my opinion.

For a solo male passenger, anytime dining is a death sentence as few parties willingly accept a solo male to their table. This leaves one sitting alone and receiving sympathy comments from the staff...

At this point in time it seems that the horse has been beaten to a sufficiency. The new code does not go into effect until the middle of June so any comments about present behavior are moot. The real...

Evidently quite difficult for many. And that is why Cunard has dumped the pretense of formality in favor of those who find it difficult to wear a suit.

Just a theory from one who will greatly miss the ambiance of a ship with a strict dress code.

I believe that these people have heard about the wonderful ambiance, the romance of ships from the...

Usually your table will remain the same but depending on where the rest of your table mates are getting off, you may have all the same folks or a mix or 100% new faces. On my last B-B TA I had a mix....

Well said. Sadly the vandals are at the gate and we have no defense other than to flee.

As I have not received this survey I wonder if you might either post a copy or a link. The last one I received a while ago had the questions worded in such a manner to obtain answers they appeared...

In response to your question. I am a solo sailor- male - I did not cruise for the ports, I cruised for the ship's overall ambiance that I can get obtain in a sustained quantity nor quality here in...

-" Let's not judge, ignore the others and have a good time" and so it goes through out all of society on most all things. relax and ignore and then we get all upset when someone does an horrendous...

Does it really matter. The passion shows through and we, those who sail for the ambiance that requires a full compliment of well attired (not uber casual) passengers both during the day and during...

While the posting numbers of 509 and 29,446 views are not a lot in the overall scheme of filling close to 9,000 passenger spots every day of the year, they are one of the largest threads on this...

Certainly not smart casual at Augusta National, The Breakers in Palm Beach nor the Greenbrier but then that is no longer Cunard's market.

Well stated. One can listen to the singing of Handels Messiah by a highly professional choir and orchestra or one can listen to the Messiah sung by the local 8th grade class with 8th grade orchestra....

Well dressed, civil passengers are those who create the demand for intelligent entertainment. Lose those people and you lose the entertainment. NCL used to have enrichment seminars on all of their...

You allow way too much time. It only took NCL two to three years to go from a decent line to a seriously under market event.

Interesting that Cunard has retreated from their own Facebook page and is no longer trying to defend the indefensible as more and more people post their dissatisfaction over the changes in ambiance...

As it has always done. I remember when I was a youth my father could only stand about 1/2 hour of "MY" music before he would yell shut that d thing off. and the world kept spinning. Then along came...

You are 100% correct. I realize that my desires are but a tiny piece of their business and they really do not care. What I find most interesting as an observer of society particularly in the US how...

I cancelled my December 2018 back to back transatlantic cruise. No need to spend 14 days on the seas among a sea of jeans and other less than inspiring attire both day and night. I can obtain that...

Right now I would venture that most of them are hiding somewhere as they as all "younger" marketers never imagined the storm they have created. Many long term loyal passengers are cancelling and they...
