  1. Some of the special dinners are gastronomic excess in both the wines as well as the cuisine. If one's tummy can handle such: go for it! I am glad that I did. I enjoyed every one that I did. Except, when my tummy told me: well, that was not a world class idea of yours, was it? Enjoy spending the evening in misery and in the bathroom.
  2. I don't remember ever ordering branzino anywhere. I know it seems now to be a seafood popular item, but I have always been satisfied with Dover Sole. Not a seafood/fish fan? There are so many other options on the menu that you might better enjoy, why are you considering "taking a chance" on a disappointing dinner? What's the "luxury" of having Dover Sole for me? #1: It is unobtainable where I live normally. #2: The service of the Steward in watching him/her deboning the fish. #3: I enjoy the taste; the butter sauce supplied may or may not be to one's taste. #4: I am paying for a "specialty restaurant experience" am I not? Enjoying Dover Sole helps to make that experience worthwhile.
  3. I use both methods depending upon the bills that I need to have paid on a monthly basis. Some are paid by auto debit; some are paid by credit card which is then paid by auto debit. My property taxes are paid by auto debit. I have had no issues and certainly don't expect to do so.
  4. Why does a "steam bun" need to be "fried"? Otherwise, the menu is appealing.
  5. My Anchorage City Schools teacher Nephew has worked for them during the Summer as a tour guide and found the company to be a very good one for which to work. If the employees are happy, that can help make the guests pleased with their tour.

  7. My opinion: this situation would be a major negative for me in deciding which cruise line to book for an Alaskan cruise. HAL ships dock right in the center of where one would want to be in Ketchikan. Don't accurately remember where the ships of other companies dock.
  8. Ohh! I don't! Other parts of a British Pub Luncheon? Quite good!
  9. Many years ago when Holiday Magazine was in print, I remember reading an article written by an experienced travel writer that described her Embarkation Day Lunch on either the Queen Mary or the Queen Elizabeth. Always in the Verandah Grill; always with an order of Caviar, hot buttered toast, and Champagne. Sounds good to me! (And apparently you as well!)
  10. I agree. Often, the "hype" does not match the experience. A major exception to my statement, however, is Rudi's Sel de Mer on HAL ships. Whether a stand alone dining venue or a "pop-up" one evening in the Pinnacle Grill, the experience matches, and may exceed, the "hype".
  11. May I suggest that you book Yacht Club? That will help make it even more special.
  12. Why would I spend thousands of dollars to "enjoy" such an experience when I have to do that at home? Just another "food fad".
  13. I admire your capacity to consume such an amount of delicious food!
