    Zurück in New York {Bayonne}

    December 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Nach einer ruhigen Nacht am Pier haben wir leider erst um 8.45 Uhr das Schiff verlassen, ich musste noch mal zum Guest Service und musste ein Problem mit unserer Rechung lösen.
    Wir haben unsere Koffer selbst mit von Bord genommen. Am Immigration Schalter wurde von uns nur ein Foto gemacht, innerhalb von 2 sec. hatte man uns in der Fotodatenbank gefunden und ein OK leuchtete auf. Das Gerät wurde von einer freundlichen älteren Dame bedient.
    Draußen stand ein Shuttlebus nach Newark bereit, und ein Mann mit einem iPad mit CC Lesekopf: 57 $ für 2, für 30 min busfahren, only credit cards, no cash....

    Unsere Pläne noch nach Manhatten ins Moma zu fahren haben wir aus Zeit- und Stressgründen verworfen. Stattdessen sind wir mit einem Busshuttle 10 min in die benachbarte riesige Mall The Mill Jersey's Garden gefahren und haben uns dort die Zeit bis zum Abflug vertrieben.

    January 22, 2014 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 -10 °C

    Eight of us booked a table in Giovanni's last night, as we get a bogof deal on the first night of the cruise, so it's $25 for two instead of each.
    It was a disaster though, the food wasn't that good on fact in Sheila and Sues case it was downright bad, Sheila had a T bone steak which was all gristle, and Sue ordered a medium well fillet, which came to the table still mooing in pain and dripping blood.
    Maz ordered a T bone and got a fillet which he doesn't like so he sent it back.
    But by the time his correct meal came we had all finished ours so he sent that back also.
    We complained to the manager but didn't get much response out of him, he just said sorry and promised it would be better next time, well I'm afraid there will be no next time for me, not on this ship anyway.

    Bayonne New Jersey

    February 4, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ -5 °C

    Back on the ship for the second cruise.

    We had a brilliant surprise today.
    Out of the blue we received an invitation to dine with the Captain.
    Apparently the guests in the royal suite had to refuse their invitation, so I think they must have felt sorry for us and invited us instead, lol.
    Anyway it's not really my kind of thing the dining with the Captain stuff, but it was nice to be invited and it was a very pleasant experience.
    The food was beautiful and the service second to none, which it being the Captain's table was only to be expected.
    The executive chef came to the table to say hello, his name is Gary Thomas and believe it or not he's a Scouser. Only problem is he's a red! Lol.
    It was funny as we met him the night before in the concierge overflow lounge.
    He was talking to Sheila and she said to me, "Gary's from Liverpool, I said have you asked him the most important question?" Sheila said "what's that" and Gary knew, quick as a flash he said "blue or red" lol.
    I said "exactly".
    Turns out he's a red :-( lol. But despite that he's a lovely guy.
