  • Cruise ships feature a variety of dining options

    Cruise ships feature a variety of dining options
    Variety is definitely the spice of life aboard today’s cruise ships (a far cry from the dining situation in the 1970s when Jeraldine Saunders wrote her book, The Love Boats, and the subsequent movies and television seriesĀ  The Love Boat based upon her work came along and were credited with popularizing cruising). Back then, there was typically only one restaurant for dinner onboard –bored or not, take it or leave it!). Now ships have multiple restaurants offering different menus and ambiance to suit different moods and tastes. Here are dining offerings on four ships, in four categories (moderate, premium, upper-premium and ultra-luxury) that feature at least half dozen eateries onboard (and in one case, two dozen) so if passengers so wish, they can dine at a different venue every evening of a seven-night cruise (with one of the nights being room service dinner –24-hour room service is available on all these ships on a complimentary basis).

    The 21st century comes to old Munich

    The 21st century comes to old Munich
    MUNICH — This is one of those towns that seems friendly but isn't. It offers beer, but its heart is cold. Personally, I like the real Munich better than the jolly stereotype. I like the incredible modern museums, the overly complex rules and...
