menu selections

In response to review, DBG says ...

I agree there was too much gourmet food, this was my first time cruising and I too would like have seen a bit more average food choices. Where was the spaghetti and meat balls and burritos? I too heard a lot of complaining about the lack of midship elevators, I just ignored the complaining and dealt with this.

My major complaint was the art auction I went to. I know now I will definitely not go to another one. The auctioneer which I greatly enjoyed listening to during his talks previous to the auction was nothing more than a salesman. Trained well to pull you into buying art that were "not" always originals". But merely pieces of art you can buy at any home store for a small price. I feel bad for anyone who has gotten fooled! I have been a graphic artist for the last 30 years. My advice is to do your research before you fall into his game. Go if you want to be entertained by a con artist. One last note, sitting up front directly to the left of this fellow we watched him run his fingers across a " $500.00 " painting, something you never do if you understand how you treat art!

Apparently your knowledge of art is more sophisticated than your palate is refined.

I do agree with you about menu selections.  Many times we have to ask what exactly the dish is.  We actually did once buy art on board but did not buy it at the action.  We purchased it ahead of time for a negotiated price.  I usually stay away from the art auctions.  I rarely see any art work that fits in with my decor at home.

 

I too find the elevators crowded especially after a lecture or a show.  So, I don't use the closest elevator - but walk to the next bank of elevators. 

 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with all of us.
