I am unashamed. I am a cruise-a-holic and planning is part of the fun. Maybe it is a female thing - planning the details so far in advance. I want to get the excursions booked within the next month so I get all of my 1st choices.
Do the married male cruisers on this board take
part in the planning of the details (room
location, wine arrangements, excursions, dinner
service, etc) or do your wives do this?
My husband doesn't do any planning or booking of holidays. Leaves it all to me. I don't mind tho because then I get to book what I want!!
He just pays for it!!
Yeah, works out well for both of us. He doesn't do it because I'm so fussy!!
The last time he arranged something was six years ago as a surprise for my 40th birthday. It was to New York. Unfortunately, the trip took place just after 9/11. A very sad time.
Perhaps we will return again one day.
Anyway back to topic. If we have wine at our table and we don't finish bottle, can we take it back to our stateroom to finish. Or is this a no no.
I have never seen a bottle of wine being taken away from the dining room by a passenger. I wouldn't think the management would like uncorked bottles being walked through the ship. Perhaps an unfinished bottle can be delivered to your cabin? That would be great.
What does happen to the unfinished bottles? Is it served as glasses of wine on the next cruise. Surely it does not end up down the drain?
Finally getting back on a Dam ship, Nieuw Amsterdam Nov'11 (My Mom's 80'th B'day cruise)
Navigator of the Seas 2010
Serenade of the Seas 2009, 2011
Not to worry; it certainly does not go down the drain--and it dosen't wind up as glasses on the next cruise.
You bought the wine; it is yours! Usually your waiter puts it in a cabinet with your name on it and serves it to you the next night or nights, until it's gone.
And I have seen people taking unfinished bottles out of the dining room with them--sometimes to the showroom or another lounge. The "management" may not like it but I've never seen anyone challenged. And when you think about it, is there really any difference between walking into the dining room with drinks and walking out of the dining room with drinks?
