    MelKaps reacted to S.Marie in What is your favorite memory from your last cruise you took?   
    It was our 7th wedding anniversary and we decided to take the 2019 holiday cruise on Mariner since we never had a honeymoon. We had so much fun but one of our favorite things is the unlimited dining package! We are foodies so we tried every restaurant. We went to Izumi Hibachi twice because the food was soooo good!

    The card I got from the cast of Grease on the Independence.  I do production photography for the actors and this is the first time the cast did anything like this.  What a great bunch!

    My (then) 19 y/o son did the second leg of my back to back with me back in Jan-Feb.  I encouraged him to go Quest even though I was too tired to go.  He went and ended up being a team captain. 

    The next day we kept running into people he knew from the night before....he was very chatty with everyone, high fives and fist bumps all around....and this is a kid who struggled with anxiety through his teen years.  Ever since that week on Adventure, he has been able to deal with his anxiety in a much more positive way.

    When I first started cruising on Royal Caribbean, I remember they didn't have bread baskets on the table. The assistant waiter would come around and give you a single piece, and you could always ask for more. I know more recently there are now bread baskets on every table. Although I love my bread basket (and usually finish it), I notice how much bread is wasted when it is on every single table. I understand it is less work for the assistant waiters since they are already so busy,  but I believe they should go back to the old method and only provide the baskets on request. I feel bad with all of the wasted food and it hurts me to see all the uneaten bread.

    Odyssey will most likely continue to sail out of Rome to Greece as advertised for 2021. Hoping Oasis is in NJ since it was a big loss this summer. I remember all the marketing and advertising that went towards promoting it.

    I’ll let you know as I’m on Odyssey October 2021 Italy/Greece. I was stoked it wasn’t an “old” ship! Lol

    I stayed in cabin 12197 on Harmony last October. I also usually stay on lower decks, but we didn’t feel any movement. I posted a vlog of our cabin. You can check it out here.

    A few years ago I sailed on Grandeur with my mother. The maitre'd came around to each table on the first night asking how everything was. The couple next to us said it wasn't good. The maitre'd asked what was wrong and how can they make things better, etc. They just shrugged and said it wasn't good food. My mother chimed in and said, "Well I thought everything was absolutely delicious!"
    That couple never returned to the dining room for the rest of the cruise, which was nice because we didn't want to be around negativity.
