Decisions of course change as they are re-evaluated by Corporate; however, at the point of time of these two voyages, this was the information presented to me.

Moreover, I doubt Royal Caribbean would ever issue a press-release specific to menu changes in the dinning room.
I also heard of this while on the Liberty. :evil:

I wish RC would do more 4-5 night cruises that leave on a Wednesday or Thursday so that you don't have to eat up a week's vacation by leaving on a Monday!!

How could you confirm information from a cruise in March on a cruise that is still 2 months away in September? 9/26/08? Was this just a typo or am I reading this wrong?

To me it sounds like it was confirmed on his 3/1/08 cruise that there will be no lobster on his 9/26/08 cruise.
Which means I might not have lobster either on my cruise. :evil:

I guess I can always prepare lobster at home dress in formal and sit in the dining room of my house and pretend I'm on a ship.

Sorry about that the date is incorrect I confirmed on Voyager of the 6/27/08 cruise, that was a typo.

In addition, based on the design and technology they are putting into Oais, it will actually be more fuel and cost efficient than their smaller ships.
You see...I don't understand this...they are charging us the passengers fuel surcharge try and off set the cost of higher fuel....why continue to penalize the customer by taking away something that most people look forward too...maybe limit to 2 tails per person...??? I find this so ridiculous....their rates are the highest out there...

Lets hope they don't replace the removable showerhead with a non removable showerhead.

With the showers so tiny the removable showerheads are better.
Although the picture above is a Handicapped larger bathroom.

The removable showerhead is good for rinsing those hard to reach places.

Methinks that if they cut out the towel animals I might look elsewhere ! Any truth to the rumor that Celebrity is charging for entertainment ("Cover charge")

Recently came off a TA in May on Celebrity and they were not charging for entertainment, except for Bingo. There was one thing though during the whole 14 days, there was not one towel animal in our room. I hope they don't think that is a cost saving issue.

No towel animals sounds like a laziness issue on the part of the Room Steward.

Maybe this is why they have the towel folding class during the cruise maybe down the road we all will have to make our own towel animals. :evil:
