I agree. I think there needs to be a clear distinction made between people who don't follow the dress code and those that do. Wearing cargo shorts on formal night is not in compliance to the dress...

It doesn't matter to me much, as long as there is availability when we want to eat I don't care where we sit or who serves us.

Maybe I need a bit of clarification: If you have traditional dining, you CANNOT walk-up for "anytime" dining? How much of the regular dining room capacity is reserved for "anytime" dining folks?

I'm glad to see the cruise lines keeping up with the times. Our society is adopting more casual dress, and eschewing formal dress, not as a childish reaction, but as a carefully considered decision....

Traditional is already fully-booked for our cruise next February, booked just yesterday. We're not concerned. We had dinner on our last cruise two nights at the Windjammer (this was RCI), and we...

I abhor self-focused, extreme judgments, in either direction. So that means the lout who comes to Formal Night dressed in bluejeans and a t-shirt is wrong, but so is the lout who condemns anyone who...

Re: windjammer's evening menu

It's buffet, and most of the choice are identical to that which was offered that night on the dining room menu. Certain items, lobster especially, never appear on the evening menu at the Windjammer,...

Re: Re: food budget

True. By the same token, some people are expecting five-star cuisine, and regardless of how much bulk you buy in, you're not going to get five-star cuisine for so little money.

BTW: I did the...

The President of Carnival Cruise Line disagrees with you.

Re: Re: Re: Tipping on RCCL

The Windjammer is the buffet on RCI ships, not the dining room, Carol.

Re: Tipping on RCCL

The quality of the food isn't really a reflection on service staff anyway.

With regard to tipping, the rule of thumb is that if you patronize the dining room, then you should cover the expected...

Re: T-Shirts and Jeans in the Dinning Room? NON-Formal nigh

I bet they're tired of you too! <grin>

Seriously, I think all these arguments can be wrought either way. People who want a casual full-service dining experience has as much of a right to what...

Re: food budget

Most cruise lines are publicly-owned, and food is a line item in their SEC filings.

RCI spends $10 per day per person. Carnival, just a bit less, and Princess and Celebrity, just a bit more, if I...

Re: Re: Is Johnny Rockets free on the Voyager?

High standards surely have financial criteria. It isn't rational to expect champage cuisine on a beer budget.

Personally, I'm happy paying so little for such decent food.

Re: St. Johns excursion

Surely no rainforest on St. John. It's a bit dry, if anything. Lots of scrub pine, AFAIK.

Re: Windjammer restaurant

We did go to the dining room all three nights of our recent cruise, but if we were to do it again, at least in that case, we would have gone to the Windjammer all three nights. The dining room was...

Bleh. Not extraordinary.

We most likely wouldn't do another Majesty of the Seas cruise. It was okay, I suppose, and I have to admit that the fact that I had a broken toe and was coming down with something that weekend...

Re: closet space on Majesty of the Seas?

We didn't find that there was all that much room in the closet for much. YMMV.

Re: Re: Is Johnny Rockets free on the Voyager?

No offense intended, but if you consider $10 per person per day for food "big bucks" then I think you need to adjust your expectations. If gourmet cuisine was a priority, I would recommend...

Re: Something nice for the wife?

I bought her some jewelry, to go with some she bought on our last cruise. I plan to give it to her just as we're taking off on the flight down to the port (if I can hold it back that long!)
