Default Cut Backs

In an earlier question, a poster remarked that his wife was disullusioned by what she viewed as "cut backs" by the cruise lines. What do "cut backs" mean?" We haven't sailed since Nov. '02.

lol Richard. I am not the expert on this, but cruised on Princess, which we love, and found there was a midnight buffet only one night. Now, we did not need the food, but wanted the experience. I believe that was one cutback. Certainly not enough in my mind to create a problem.

I, personally, am glad that the cruiselines have cut back on the midnight buffets. To me they seem like a tremendous waste of food.

Cheers,

Michelle: I'm surprised at you. You must know the midnight buffet food gets reincarnated until it's gone!

Eg: Whole steamed lobster becomes lobster thermidor becomes lobster bisque.... and what's left over the crew eat.

Right, but when you see people stick their fingers in the food just for the heck of it, you don't want to eat the reincarnated leftovers!

Cheers,
