  1. I would love to see a "sampler" size or 1/2 portion option - you know for when you want to try 3 or 4 entrees, but you've been hanging out at the Windjammer all afternoon.
  2. Escargot, Goat Cheese and Tomato Tart, Duck A' L'Orange, Lamb Shank, Rack of Lamb, Hazelnut Chocolate Cake, Grand Marnier Souffle, and Cherries Jubilee.
  3. With Princess cancelling until mid December, I'm surprised that NCL is only cancelling through October. The 6 week difference just seems off to me when all the big lines have stayed so close in the dates they have been pushing out so far.
  4. Not to derail the Covid part of this topic...but did anyone else notice you can do the rescheduled Star Trek and 80's charter cruises as a B2B? I just told my husband I'll go on the first leg with him if he'll stick around for the 2nd leg with me.
  5. I'm sure this was brought up at some point, but I missed it. Not complaining (okay maybe a little), just offering my experience as something you might need to consider when Lifting & Shifting... We decided to Lift & Shift our November 2020 cruise to October 2021. I tried to modify my travel insurance policy this morning, and basically I'm stuck with a policy that we'll never use. Allianz will only modify a policy up to 770 days from purchase. Our new sail date ends 772 days after purchase so they won't make any changes. I'm past the cancellation period so I'm just out the cost of
  6. On the rocks with salt when I make them. Depending on the restaurant it's frozen with a swirl of sangria.
  7. I can't ride in the backseat of a car without getting sick, can't go on roller coasters, and I have to wait to get on a plane until right before they close the doors because everyone walking down the aisle to board is too much for me. Forget watching the kids play a realistic video game or a scene in a movie than pans over the top down view of land or sea. I take a non-drowsy Dramamine every morning of the cruise though, and I am fine. I double up if we are going on an excursion that day which involves a smaller boat to get to the site such as a snorkeling excursion. Maybe her mom could pick s
  8. That's great news! Thanks for letting us know your experience.
  9. I just got on to check on our L&S options for our November cruise, and July and August are no longer on the calendar - for Galveston at least. Sept. 18 is now showing as the first sailing back.
  10. The CDC runs the Vessel Sanitation Program which falls under the Public Health Service Act. They inspect and keep track of health issues similar to the way the Health Department does with restaurants on land. You can see health scores and inspection reports for ships that operate in the US on the CDC's website. https://wwwn.cdc.gov/InspectionQueryTool/InspectionSearch.aspx
  11. Royal has a note about it on their website now. Announcement coming next week.
  12. Could have been embarrassing! Fortunately it was just my kids...who unfortunately overheard a nice set of new vocabulary words. I'm sure they'll wait to repeat them until we're at grandma's.
  13. I may be making them again tonight for this very reason. Woke up to a fridge that had stopped working, and this afternoon my shorts got caught on a kitchen cabinet door handle...ripping it right off the hinges. On the bright side, yesterday I got a $2000 price drop on our January cruise. Bring on the drink package!
