Default I'll bet I'm not the only one

For years, I've wondered why aren't there any doughnuts on the (fill in the name) cruise ship? Now don't get me wrong. I think the variety of foods available for breakfast is terrific. And all of the pastries! Wow! But wouldn't it be great if there was a Tim Horton's and/or a Cinnabon counter on board? Oh how I would love to have some Timbits or a Cinnabon cinnamon roll with my morning coffee. I'll bet I'm not the only one that's thought about this. Hmmm. Wonder if I could get a franchise started on one of the ships?

fllady, which ship? Although it's not a high priority, it might help decide which ship to book for our next cruise?

RTALLEN, you must be Canadian if you crave Timmy's so much!
I could do without Krispy Kremes, never liked those greasy things, and the local one went belly up because apparently most people shared my disgust!
Give me a Tim's doughnut any day!

Nope! Not Canadian. Actually, we're from Ohio. Just happen to really like Timbits. (And their bagels are pretty good too.) And I don't know if you have Cinnabon there, but if you (or anyone else reading this) has ever been past one of their counters in a mall or airport, it's almost impossible to walk past without craving one of their cinnamon rolls. Just think about it. Sitting on the balcony in the morning, cup of coffee in one hand, Cinnabon cinnamon roll in the other. Calm seas, perfect weather, warm sun. Life just doesn't get any better than that! (Except maybe hitting a big jackpot in the casino.)

RD, I share your low opinion of Krispie Grease....... I do love Dunkin's cake donuts though and Cinabon as well.

Timmy's all the way....Tim Horton's is now in several States, especially the ones closest to the Cdn border. I know Michigan and New York have them.

I want to open a Tim Horton's franchise in Florida, but coming up with over 1/2 million $$ to get the place going is not likely to happen.
