I am attending a 5 year anniversary dinner of a friend that they're putting together. While I thought it was simply a get together among friends, it seems like they might be fronting the bill. Though it wasn't clearly stated, I suspected it may be the case after they asked my choice of entree.
This brings up a few questions...
1. Should I bring a gift?
2. What kind of gift? Cash might be a bit gauche?
3. What if I misread and they aren't paying?
Advice? Are anniversary...
Anybody got any good pressure cooker techniques and recipes? I just ordered one awaiting delivery. There's a few interesting ones from seriouseats I'm looking forward to trying (stock, risotto), as well as doing BBQ ribs in them.
Oceania considered 'upper-premium', which is a step between RC, Princess, Holland America and the full-on luxury segment of Regent, Silversea, Crystal, etc. In terms of price point and amenities alone Oceania's travellers should be quite different than Royal Caribbean.
Mid-sized luxury brand name ships and cruises such as Oceania, Regent, Crystal, Silversea, Seabourn should have the size and amenities of a larger ship without the Royal Caribbean/Carnival crowd.
They should also have decent food options with restaurants from Pepin (Oceania), Nobu (Crystal) and Keller (Seabourn), often which are included with your cruise or with a relatively small additional surcharge.
