    Aloha Rob,

    It's called 'Shaka' and is a gesture of greeting. I guess they were just so pleased to see me.

    Malama pono.

    Cannot disagree with you on that one Richard

    On the Internet I found this by Aunti Marie (Radio Show in Hawaii)
    Quote `Hawaiian words...Hawaiian language...such mysteries!
    As for "malamapono" as a salutation -- here in the islands it's used as "take care", often as "malamapono a hui hou"..."take care, until we meet again". ``

    take care

    Did you work out what their fingers are saying as they must convey a message

    Ah yes, 'the value of some of those events is priceless'

    This one was a just one such Cunard organised visit, to the Govenor of Hawaii's residence for tea and entertainment. The house, incidentally, is not open to the general public.

    I've been following the Cunard World Voyage blogs and what to me is astounding is the events Cunard puts on for you as a World passenger outside the trip itself, the value of some of those events is priceless.

    Cheers /Rob

    Good morning JVS.

    Trust me, loyalty does pay, but it is not necessarily always based on the past number of cruises.

    I'm sure that, as a member of the Cunard World Club, you have attended their Cocktail Parties. Usually they give an indication of what loyalty is all about.

    By the way, it is most certainly Cunard that give the 'upgrades', not the travel agents.

    Just caught up with your comment Old George, must have slipped through my net.
    I must admit that any reason as to why a message is not getting 'over to Cunard' is because complaints like yours are few and far between.
    Indeed, without exception in the case of breakfast, all food is cooked individually in the Grills Kitchen. I care not to remember how many nights of Grills accommodation I have had but never once have I had cause to find the quality of breakfasts below an excellent standard.
    Anyway, regarding the service, here is one dish you will want served warm

    Head Waiter Sanjay preparing Crepe Suzettes at a Grills Dinner table


    ...and one definitely better served cold...

    The Maitre d' preparing Steak Tartare at a Grills lunch table

    Morning Richard
    About to call it a day then I can chat in the afternoon better.
    Now, that picture of the 'Tartare' seems to be making its rounds. Do hope you have not had it in the sun for a long time otherwise raw steak can attract critters.
    You are truly correct in the Cruise Line decides upgrades but certainly the Curnard rep who they booked thru on the Web needs to be trained a bit better in the answers and more helpful as to how to ensure you are getting the right rate.
    Over here they tell you all prices are the same but you need to have your prior membership number available and all of a sudden the members only price appears
    Your breakfast picture is wondeful and that type of service just makes for one the whole trip a classic experience.

    I know I sound like a moaner, but all of our cruises are for 2 weeks +
    so one complains to the head waiter(very nice man) he says he will look into it, and nothing changes, so you put up with it. how does one get this over to Cunard, We like their ships, We think their staff are great, take your own advise, and vote with your feet, sail with another company
