The sewage smell I could bear, but no Lurpak? Unforgivable!

Those of us embarking on the 18th are going to miss out on having the new 'Diamond' cruisecards - Diamond is replacing Black on Oct 20th:

We've just received our email. Really don't see the point of it at all. It's not the coveted higher tier and no change to benefits. 

And I've no idea how they will distinguish the card, although @thecruisers6 has suggested Swarovski crystals 😂

I think it may have had something to do with how  'Black' was referenced.  I often referred to myself as being 'Black' (though I'm more of a pinky hue lol) or, another expression: 'Black member'  😱 😈.

Nothing wrong with being  Black card member.

Maybe it should have been Swarowski level ... 😂

I bet if you suggested it, they'd change it to that. Swarovski would love the free advertising.

Fair point. If the new cards have diamonds or crystals that might be quite nice. I'm suspecting not though. I guess we'll find out on Seaside in November.

Bea- We're sailing YC on Meraviglia in November and upgraded to the Premium+ package. MSC seems to be getting it and it was very easy to order. Hopefully, you'll have the crew informed concerning the Prem+ in YC on Meraviglia before we sail! It sounds like you were happy with your choice. I'm really looking forward to the Champagne Bar and I'm hoping that someone sailing before us will be able to post a menu. I have searched and searched and not found a menu for champagne by the glass in this bar. I might have to just wait and enjoy the surprise!

 

Loving the wandering discussion on this post.

 

As for the diamond or crystal cards...I'd better go book some more cruises!

My "reviews" tend to "wander" a lot lol 🙄 (and I love that they do ... and the people who "wander" with me).

I'm hoping to post photos of menus  - including the Champagne Bar one (I reckon I'll be hanging out there quite often, enjoying PremPlus yet again 😁) so keep a lookout for the start of my next "review" at the end of next week.  I'm hoping that the internet connection onboard plays nice so I can upload the pics, etc.

Thanks a mil L2F.  It's hard to believe he was so ill only a few weeks ago.  He's now 5 weeks off the cigarettes without any substitutes, nor is he short-tempered or cranky, so a lot of good has come from it lol.

That’s the spirit and the secret to never having a bad cruise! Always look for the silver lining! It’s there, somewhere...

Arrived in Nice, waiting for the boat. Hope we can board early tomorrow in Cannes. Will review the Seaview when back in Malaysia in two weeks.

Well, folks ... we're at the departure gate in Dublin airport waiting for our 4.15pm flight to New York, (where we're planning to meet up with Mark and Jane ... the cruisers6 ... later tonight.  They flew out yesterday).

Floated down, more like 😁  The wine they serve in Dublin airport is powerful stuff, altogether 🤪
