Tracey...
First off, I'd have the TA forward your request to the cruise line. You can follow that up once you're onboard by expressing your interest to the Social Hostess.

Hope that works out for U.

Regards,
Kuki

Try this, bring a gift for the Captain. Something simple like a nice stationary set, box of imported chocolates, ect. Leave it at the guest relations desk for him.

Worked for me on the Century last year.

Hi,

Just look forlorn and mope around like us, and you will get invited. Actually at the Captaibn's reception, we told him how we had cruises with him before, and we got invited.

Great idea, those Tweety slippers !!!

I have an upcoming piece in Cruise Travel mag about the Cap's table. Don't know for sure when it will be.

My best Captain's experience was when the Captain of Rotterdam VI came to OUR table for dinner. I suppose I should post the photos in the gallery?

oh pamda -- what a lovely idea!! we'll try inviting Captain Bang (notice i didn't call him Capt Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang!?) one night when we're on ship!! Oh, getting that tingly sensation all over -- usually happens when I have a thought that suddenly appears & mysteriously disappears; I'm starting to affectionately call them a "brain fart" moment.

What is the big attraction of sitting with the Captain? Am I missing something?

Bobbie ...

Some people think it's kind of a treat on the bigger ships because so few are asked and it has sort of a cachet.

Usually the people who are asked are in the big suites, multi-frequent cruisers on the line and the occasional lowly travel writer.

There is one bachelor Captain who always has a couple of cute young babes at his table <g>.

It's not a big deal unless you think it is.

You're not missing anything.

Didn't think I was really. He's just another person to me. Thanks, Pamda.
