Alright, I can't believe I am telling you all about this but on my next cruise, I booked a speciality restaurant every night. Why; I love the attention I/we get in this smaller venue. I like the quieter atmosphere, the detail to finer service, the "clear" distinction of the wait staff, the offerings on the menu. I am not and never have and never will be a "stand up and whirl your napkin above your head kinda guy".
I am not rich by any means, but I like to be pampered and if it costs me a few extra dollars, I think I work hard enough to deserve it! I actually have more of a problem with scheduling a 50 minute massage, having to wait for her to come back into my room, getting 35 minutes of actual massage and 15 minutes of trying to sell me potions and lotions.
