Are you joining in on the hula or ukulele classes?

Did you get some shaved ice?  With ice cream at the bottom?

So far no to the shaved ice and to the hula/ukulele lessons.

In Kona today. The ship’s tenders are shuttling people ashore. We were told to expect 2 hour wait times for the return to the ship this afternoon.

 

Hilo tomorrow, then we start back with a stop in Ensenada.

Very excited for your review! I am not sure if it will be done in time for me (I am planned on Splendor June 1st) but I have loved your reviews in the past!

Yes, the sea day brunch is still in  effect. Breakfast is served in the Gold Pearl dining room starting at 8:30 and continues till the brunch starts around 11:00.

We had to skip Kona due to high surf. 😞 I'm glad you got to go. What did you do there?

On sea days they are alternating. One day sea day brunch from 8:30 till 1, the next day open seating breakfast from 7 to 10, then open seating lunch from noon to 2.

Our glass bottom boat excursion was cancelled due to high winds and rough seas—drat!

Sorry that happened to you. The tender,  sorry, water shuttle ride was a little bumpy. We did the historical tour which was pretty good. Now sitting at the Paradise Bar & Restaurant across from the tender pier while Patti shops. Probably be on one of the last water shuttles back. 😎

Is it the new brunch menu or the old? Any loose slots you’ve found? I’ll also be on the ship 6/1 and eagerly awaiting Jamman’s review! How has the blackjack been Jamman?

Not sure about the sea day brunch menu since we haven't made it there yet. As for blackjack, I'm about even after the first four sea days. The continuous shuffling machines suck as I'm sure you know. 😎

Glad you’re sitting about even. I know you’ll come out up, you always seem to!

 

Oh how I despise those CSMs! Do they have them on all tables or just low limit tables? I’ve really only cruised fantasy class ships (with the exception of Victory) and on my recent cruises on Imagination and Inspiration they had the CSMs at the $10 / $6 non super-fun tables only. Hoping that’s the case on Splendor too. Though I wish Carnival (and land casinos) would do away with them completely. I know, I’m dreaming 😆

All I've seen are CSM's. That's the way of the world today. Gives them more hands per hour and takes away card counters. ☹

Yes, really... we have had a little success in the past on ships, one cruise in particular after hitting up a machine a reviewer had recently mentioned. Though I do prefer to spend my time at a blackjack table.

Oh that hurts to hear! Better that I am prepared for it though. Thanks for taking time out of your cruise to respond. May you enjoy the rest of your cruise and do well in the casino!

Question for you: How was the internet and TV as you sailed to Hawaii? I have heard stories from the Splendor that Internet was not working at all, and that the live TV stations were no longer received?

 

Thanks for your reply!

There have been periods when the internet (value package) has been very slow or non existent. When we got to the Islands both the television and internet and cell service got markedly better, there was about a 3 day period out in the middle of the Pacific where there was no television or cell service. Satellites don’t need to broadcast to the fish I suppose.
