  1. No guarantee on the accuracy but this is what I found: https://www.howtopronounce.com/pichilingue Roy

  4. Thank you for the report. For those wondering about Pichilingue the Koningsdam (at Pichilingue) is probably actually closer to the town of LaPaz than the Oosterdam. The ship next to the Oosterdam is the Sebourn Sojourn. Roy
  5. Do you by chance remember when I did a thread here "2018 Crystal World Cruise as seen by a Four Star Mariner"? Didn't turn out anything like what I had planned but one of the unexpected highlights was "The Cookie of the Day". Celebrity Chef Jon Ashton is part chef and part comic and he's doing a cooking "demo" each Sunday. Here's today's video for a steak dish: https://www.facebook.com/crystalcruises/videos/176847387076961/ On a more serious note the recipes are given here: https://blog.crystalcruises.com/sunday-cooking-with-chef-jon-ashton-chimichurri-steak/ Roy
  6. Thank you for the report. A beautiful day here in Maryland. I had hoped to offer a nice recipe from "Crystal at Home" but was unable to get it to play. Roy
  7. Do you know, did she come onboard before Fremantle, and if so is she still on board? Roy
  8. A cooperative effort of many cruise lines. With 70 entertainers, just 2 I recognized, a CD from Royal Caribbean I encountered on a 4-day cruise 8 years ago and Mark Merchant (second from right in bottom row in the preview. Roy
  9. Here's the video. So many entertainers and I only recognized one. Roy
  10. It works for me. I had a bit of a problem yesterday, but that may have been due to pausing it for long periods as I was also preparing dinner. Roy
  11. It should either clear or be very close as Francis Scott Bridge in Baltimore has a clearance of 185 feet and Serenity has been here. Roy
  12. Thank you for the report for this traditional Memorial Day. Like many others, I've had plenty of water here. I was a bit busy this morning as it was my church men's group breakfast on the last Saturday of each month (on Zoom of course). At least the Maasdam is finally at her ultimate layup space; not sure of what other ships are done with their roaming. Today is also hopefully going to be rocket launch day. Roy
  13. When I did Crystal World Cruise in 2018 I did a companion thread on the HAL forum with some comparisons. One post was on pricing which is probably more information than I want to duplicate but I'll quote it here and perhaps be able to remove some of the fluff: I will mention that the extra suite benefits on Crystal are really minimal, so aside from the extra space there is really little need to go beyond the basic cabin, especially for a solo. Sea days on Crystal are extremely active with usually about 3 lecturers per day and many other things. The lectures are also all recorded so if you're busy when they happen they are readily available at your convenience with "lecture on demand" on your stateroom TV. Roy Roy
  14. Can Serenity get under the bridge there? I haven't seen anything definitive about why Symphony isn't visiting the US but if it is a problem then it would need to be Serenity. In a vain attempt to get back on topic I wonder if that would be attractive to snowbirds. Roy
