Strange -- I never heard of a TA giving away dinners for the Canaletto -- just the Pinnacle.That's truly a shame, KK. We only experienced Canaletto on the Oosterdam in 2010, but it was so good that we ate there 3 times. We tried to make reservations last year on Veendam but it was booked solid.....or so we were told. Then again, we were told by the Maitre d' at Pinnacle that they shouldn't let travel agents "give away" dinners there because they don't have enough tables per cruise to equal the chits that passengers have. I told him then, and I repeat it now, that is not the TAs' responsibility but HAL's. He just looked at me and huffed! :madd:
We plan on going to Canaletto's at least twice next month....assuming the first night is good.
