Default Canadian Thanksgiving

I'm debating whether or not to cook at turkey next weekend ... is there any chance of a turkey dinner on Oasis on the 14th of October?

I imagine the cruiselines celebrate American Thanksgiving ....will there be a token turkey dinner for Cannucks at sea?

Make the turkey. I don't think they will be celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving with turkey and all the trimmings on Oasis.

Take care,
Mike

nope Canadians are used to it. We very rarely sue anyone. We'll just say "sorry" and move on

[SIZE="3"]We sailed once over Canadian Thanksgiving, on Princess. There was no acknowledgement of the holiday whatsoever, however we made our own celebration. We ordered a big champagne breakfast, invited my sister and cousin to celebrate with us on our large balcony. Make your own Thanksgiving and enjoy!/SIZE]

So, there was no turkey dinner on Monday October 14 (day 3 of our cruise). Turkey dinner came Day 7. Would have been nice if they switched the menus around.

The captain did make an announcement on the Monday to wish all Canadian passengers and crew a happy thanksgiving.
