Were going to do a few things differently on our idea why, just kinda popped into our heading for the buffet 10 minutes after boarding (after guest services that is), no trying to get into our cabin b4 they announce the wandering waiting for the muster silliness in whatever room they hold it in, none of that...we'll show up fashionably late like a lot of folks...dinner in a specialty instead of the MDR's..that's the first day....we'll work on the rest as we go heheheh…..what would y'all change just to shake things up???

Some good and devious suggestions. You could also hold up the buffet line by choosing and selecting your choices slowly. That should go over well and reuse yor plate- might get a response or two.

I'll leave holding up the buffet line to the true professionals. This trip I want to see how few times we actually go there...theres enough lines elsewhere to make up for it tho..

Enjoy the changes, maybe make a new pattern?!Wink

If it's on a Celebrity ship for the Muster Station part, good luck trying not to meet there...they take attendance now!

Its NCL< and they take attendance too.....didn't say we weren't going...just not in any big hurry...they don't seem to care, and neither do we, as long as they tick off yer name...

Just make sure that you show up to muster with something tall cold and has a straw sticking out of it Wink

Carnival won't let you do that. Princess also take attendance.

Well where be the fun in that?

You go to Guest Services as soon as you board the ship? I’ve always seen a line up and wondered why. Do that many people use cash for their onboard accounts? I can’t think of any other reason to go.

Several reasons to go....we got 5 specialty dinners...3 for booking it and they can be reserved online, two others for status, they need to be made on board...along with checking up to date menus...and there is another reason, which shall remain a state secret, but it has something to do with an available feature on these particular ships....first come first served....and for the record, we don't use cash...
