(shhhh -- they mayo was for Cheryl)

 

I'm more a kraut/mustard/onions person ... or the occasional chili/cheese/onions/mustard.

 

Which is amazing, as back in the day - ketchup went on everything (no more)!

Funny, because my husband was fussing because no where in any of the restaurants that we went into in Seattle waiting for our cruise did they have Mayo.

DARN - just realized that we didn't pick up our Ship Pins last week, darn it!

 

That's ok, we'll be back before year's end.  🙂

When you go to get them be sure they give you the Platinum/Diamond pin with the ship name on it. They gave me the Gold one with no name on it and I didn't notice till I got home.

This post could be titled "I didn't know that," or, "live and learn."

Just got off the Mardi Gras again today and learned two new things.

1. Prior to my first Mardi Gras cruise I learned from cruise critics that Diamonds were each provided $25 free play in the casino but you had to have it loaded on your Sea Pass card by the casino cashier before playing. We did that this time, but, instead of playing the slots, we played roulette. Instead of using our free play, they charged our account $25 + $1.50 fee. When we questioned that at the cashier it turns out if you want to play table games, the cashier will give you $25 fun chips which you exchange at the table.

2. We had the cheers package for both cruises. My wife enjoys screw drivers but doesn't care for the OJ used by the bars. "It doesn't taste much like orange juice." So, the Havana bar offers fresh squeezed OJ. Ordered two fresh squeezed and added a shot of vodka. Got billed 5.89 each. When I questioned this at guest services, it turns out fresh squeezed orange juice is "food" not "juice."

 

Still learning after cruising since 1971!

It says in the fine print of Cheers about the different items not included such as the fresh squeezed OJ, floaters, beer tubed, fish bowls, etc.

The pour your own draft on the Lido deck is now included on the Mardi Gras since the Mardi Gras has the pour your own soda which is covered by both Cheers and bottomless bubbles.

I didn't see the fine print. In the list of inclusions and exclusions "juice" is not mentioned. "Food items" are excluded. Who knew any juice would be a food item. In listing items so you know which program to choose, " juice" is the second item listed for both Cheers and Bubbles.
