I don't blame the CD for the trivia answers because I don't think they
come up the trivia questions and answers. I think those are
"pre-packaged" and bought by the cruise lines from third parties.
I thought the cruise director was fine. This was his first or second
week back at sea after a shoreside job with NCL. I think he said that
was for three years. He just joined HAL. Also two of his staff members
were ill and he was shorthanded. His last gig as a cruise director was
with Princess. I recall having him as a cruise director on Princess

On a six day crossing there are two formal nights, one semi-formal
night and two elegant casual nights. On the semi-formal night most wore
a suit and tie although a jacket was okay with a tie. So only two of
the nights was a jacket without a tie okay.

I find your mention of the Bronx people sailing for Chanukah
being rude a glaring anti-semitic remark.
I've been on this rtc group for a number of years and pretty much know
the people involved. Many people are rude but I object to your\
insinuation and believe you should read that paragraph over again
and think about what you were inferring.
If my feelings are correct, then I would never want to cruise with
your bigoted inferences.

Oh, please, get over it. Really, you need to grow thicker skin.

I want to see those pictures for myself! If they really exist, you and
Charles got up in the wee hours of the night and set the those chairs up
just for the photos...were they rocking chairs?
