  1. Nice picture! Do you know how many total Captains they have at X?
  2. Agree - I would hate to say that they can have more than one, though probably some have received an extra one, if they asked. You must like Fine Cut as much as I do - I've eaten there 3 times as well. πŸ™‚ I can see why they change $20 more for a second entree as they serve some prime and 30 day dry aged cuts of meat. That wasn't on the original menu (I don't remember the $20 surcharge in Nov or Dec, but did see it in January - I imagine that they wanted to be consistent, when people asked). Murano serves some great things as well so I would think they would limit the entrees. There is no way I could at more than one - I usually have to choose between the cheese cart and dessert and the cheese cart usually wins since they always have some amazing cheese that I have less opportunity to taste.
  3. It's hard to say (we did it once a few years ago and I can't remember), but the wines are pretty nice, so I assume 4 oz pours. They may refill though - doesn't hurt to ask. πŸ˜‰ I found a few pictures: Heirloom tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad: Chateaubriand: Lobster Prepped at Table: The Amazing Cheese Cart: Les VI Etoiles du Murano For Two Assorted Gelato and Sorbet: A more complete dessert list:
  4. I wonder if it is possible, but not a definite yes. I imagine you could ask for a small entree as an appetizer to be able to try something else, if an issue. I know of at least one specialty on X that charges for a second entree (Fine Cut Steakhouse).
  5. I didn't think of that - might be a good use of the delivery service - also maybe when watching a movie at the outdoor movie area. Don't shoot the messenger, folks, but what a great thing for chair hogs - people would not need to move all day, except for quick bathroom breaks. πŸ˜‰
  6. It made me hungry for the goat cheese souffle, table-side prepared lobster, the cheese cart and chocolate souffle.πŸ™‚ Goat Cheese Souffle:

  8. No, you will get the second page of the menu that is attached above - a wonderful menu! They just discount the first night. πŸ™‚
  9. They do have a Five Senses menu with wine pairing for $89 each (instead of usual $50 without wine), or I should say the last time I was there that was the price. They will have wines that fit the Classic Package and the wine steward will help you pair with the courses. If you want to splurge on a bit more expensive wine, they will charge you the difference + 20% grats. Enjoy! My favorite celebrity restaurant! celeb-murano-dinner-menu.pdf
  10. Same here. Love cauliflower soup - not a curry fan (or it is not a fan of me πŸ˜‰). Would love to do the "hcat Art Walk."
  11. I looked at it - I am scheduled to work a couple of days during that cruise....
  12. It is your Blue Chip Club level. πŸ™‚
  13. I know. I went through all of these cruises this morning to try to make one work with my work schedule, but would have to make a lot of swaps so will just have to pass. There are some great deals!
  14. I looked at the remaining S3's - the ones on 6 and 11 that I wouldn't like as much, but many I could potentially swap, if got one of those (deck 12 is the worst and booked already - they still had availability on 9 and 10). The S3's I saw were very nice - the views were very good, if not perfect, and balconies 103 sq ft - only thing I might miss would be the bed facing the ocean, but wouldn't be laying in bed much. πŸ™‚ I did mock bookings of the guarantee and the S2's and liked that I could get into a Edge suite for about $5000 for two. Alas, I will be home cooking a turkey ...πŸ™‚
  15. That's right, they aren't going to feed ME curried cauliflower! πŸ˜‰ No, actually it was a work-related issue - unfortunately, I will here working while other lucky people are eating curried cauliflower...
