YES!  Unfortunately.  At least for me.

 

Oh, I could stuff myself.  Then, spend the rest of the evening in misery.

 

One learns to order the courses that one can consume.  And, even then, maybe only a few bites of a course might be a wiser thing to than consuming the entire dish.

It is very good, but we found that we simply could not eat that much food; and we left too much behind.  (Is this part of the aging process???)

 

It really is very filling because there is so much protein involved.  I order very carefully.  DH is made of stronger stuff, so he is more up to the task.   The French flair to the menu is very nice, though.  I miss the old days when there was more emphasis on French cuisine.

Question :

So for the 4 and 5 star mariners would the Pinnacle be  50% of $ 39.00 =  $ 19.50 

Plus the 18 % on the regular price  of $ 39.00 service charge                    =        7.00 

                                                                                             Total per person.         $ 26.50 instead of $ 46.00 what 1 to 3 star mariners pay pp

 

The same principle as what they have been doing with us buying the wine packages  ?

You're correct.  As long as your sister is staying in your stateroom you'll both be considered to be 5-star for that cruise.  If she's in her own stateroom, then no - she'd be at her actual star level.

I assume this is correct, the wine package is a good comparison.

3 star Mariners get 25% off. Unless something changed.

Tony, since you apparently are good at math 😉, what does this do for the Tamarind price with the Mariners discount?

Oops - I stand corrected - you bought should get the 5 Star benefits.  I have never experienced this first hand though as we both are at the same level anyway.

Hi Jeroen ,  If the Tamarind is indeed $ 34.20 the Base price would be $ 29.00  so for a 4 or 5 star mariner  the price would be $ 14.50 plus 5.20 serv  = $ 19.70  

 

For a 3 star mariner it would be  $ 21.75 plus $ 5.20  =  $ 26.95

Absolutely correct.  They will both get the 5* benefits.  I have experienced it as DH was a number of days behind me so I was 5* when he was 4 originally and he received all the benefits.

Thanks Tony, a substantial raise in the price of Tamarind, but worth it still!

I do have to wonder if they are in danger of pricing themselves out of the market.  Our experience in Pinnacle is always hit or miss.  Sometimes the meal is great, sometimes not so much.  We have actually had more consistent food in Canaletto (except for the raw chicken parmigiana on the Maasdam).  We get two for free and we will certainly do those but not sure about paying $50 for the two of us and three stars and below it would be $100 a couple.

We’ve found this to be the case as well,  much prefer lunch.

So $36 for the Pinnacle for us 3 stars. I'll take it. Haven't had a bad meal there yet. Usually can't finish it all tbh. This is a heck of a lot cheaper for a full meal than other cruiselines in their premier steak joint.
