I've agreed with you on most all your posts (except maybe the one about the speedo - to put it lightly, I am not a fan) and value your opinion, so I'd like to ask you about a dining etiquette situation. Just curious about what you think.
Last year on the Millennium we received an invitation one evening to dine not with the captain, but with a social host. There was an RSVP number "for regrets only" on the card. It turned out that we had already made reservations to dine in the ship's specialty restaurant, the Olympic, for that night. Therefore, I called the number and declined. Did I commit a breach of etiquette? Should I have cancelled my Olympic reservation and accepted the invitation to dine with the social host?
