    Here is one just for you (sorry off topic) Royal Promenade IOS

    Stunning, Delboy. It looks like a painting.........and I can see some drinks in the picture

    I guess it's IOTS. I've never tried RCI as I'm not sure it's what I'm looking for......and I don't want to 'waste' a cruise. The ships are certainly big enough for me though.

    Perhaps I could try a mini-cruise.

      Foodstagram is just a 'name' - a noun - just a derivative of Instagram from Apple/iPhone.

      It's just a 'name' and no more an adulteration on the English language than the made up names Neil Down and Ida Down.

        Hygroscopic (absorbs water from the air)
        Decimation (killing a group of people).

            Whilst it's easy to post 'big' words but it's quite a different skill to use them in the proper context. Must admit - I had to look up 'hygroscopic'.

              Can you think of a better way of destroying a word than to fill it full of water then decimate it?

              Come on lads ....keep up, isn't that we do to food so why should we not do it to a contaminant description?

              By the way there are other meanings of the word "Decimate" Taffy unless you are only using the Welsh Authorised of course when a lexicographic analytical description would take too many pages .....Neil

                Me personally, I've got better things to do while dining than to take photo's of food, some people must live strange lives.

                  I seem to recall that the vast majority of members show their appreciation for Restaurant write ups.

                  I mean to say, what would be the point of writing about a restaurant and not showing the food?

                  But in answer to JC's OP, this particular restaurant...

                  Travel Reviews, Hotel Reviews, Mature Travel Advice, Silver Travel Forum

                  ...was more than pleased with both my photography and the write up. They have offered me a 50% discount on the food element on my return.

                  And of course, a picture is said to be worth a thousand words.

                  I'd say that the only restaurants that are against photography, and I haven't come across any yet, are worried about something.

                    Good try Neil changing the word from the original Decimation derived from Roman times when as a punishment they at random picked 10% off a population to kill as a punishment and can be used in the context of reducing the total amount.
                    Not being Welsh I would not use a Welsh Dictionary .
                    Same old stuff nowt new from you Neil.....Taffy

                      I just wonder how many word now have the same meaning or connotation as they did in Roman times? Might be a few I suppose.

                      Not Welsh, well there’s nice innit? With a handle of Taffy too.

                      Now I do like the sound of that…. “Taffytoo”… “Taffytoo”… “Taffytoo”
                      maybe if I tweeted that enough it could become a bespoke euphemism, what do you think?

                      Regards. ….Neil
