I just received a notification saying that there was going to be a wedding cruise catering event coming up. I would like to start stacking some dishes. What do the cruise events typically ask for? Thank you for your time.

Final reward:


Once finished with the cruise ship, Alejandro, the groom will start showing up like Nefertiti and dropping cake toppers. Once you collect enough of the toppers you can bake the wedding cake which gives you gems, just like the pyramid cake. Another opportunity to get gems.

Obviously can't guarentee it'll be the same.

Also, clear the following off your counters, since the cruises so far have never asked for them:
Seasonal dishes (potato pesto pie, deviled eggs)
Specialty oven dishes: Valentine's day oven, pizza oven, probably the new BBQ grill

Thank you�� fatbearsecondary! I need to start cooking!

The good news is that the first few days are usually relatively low stress. Use that time to build up your stores and let dishes that aren't helpful fall off your counters. Also, we usually get a few days of leeway on the start date (the event will start but not force you to start for up to a week), so try to time the last 3 days such that they'll fall when you have a lot of play time.

Good luck to you!

Either way, that is 36 or so hours from now. Hope it starts Friday! Will look for an update in case we need it to access the cruise. Yay!! :-)

I received it as a push notification on my iPhone right before I posted first post. It just said coming soon it didn't tell me a date that I know of. I jumped on it so quickly that it could have and I didn't see it. I went right to the game but saw nothing, I then tried to pull it back up in my notifications right after but it wasn't there.

Glad to hear both iphone and android are getting the notification for it. I have those turned off, so that's probably why I didn't see one. I'd expect the cruise to start tomorrow (Friday) afternoon, since that's usually when we get updates to RS2, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. Nice to get some notification so I can try to clear the 1000's of deviled eggs off my counters!

The catering event is 10 days, though we will have several days before it starts automatically.

Kooky, can you confirm when it will start automatically?

That said if it is Friday where you are, if you start today your last day will fall on next Sunday. Similarly if it is Thursday today, which it is here, then the last day will fall in Saturday.

I see the cruise ship, and I've started making dishes they've asked for, but there is nothing in the space behind the shoppe- usually there is a stage and four catering dishes and the two catering helpers. There is nothing there.
Edit: ha! Never mind. I cleared the app on my phone and went back in and it's there now.

I'm going to really enjoy this event! I've managed to complete every one thrown at me in the past few months ;) my only question is do you think the recipes we learn like the appatizer plate etc. will be able to be kept after the event? It would be pretty stressful to try and master those and complete the catering event lol!

infinitelove19

I have one thing that says 13 days and another that says 10 days.

The cruise does not start automatically, but once started there are 10 days to complete it. Presumably, in 3 days it will start automatically for those who didn't start it already.

Once the cruise has started (whether you click start, or in 3 days time it start automatically) You have 10 days to finish the cruise.
Each day at midnight (PDT) the "next" day unlocks and can be accessed upon completion of the previous day's orders.

So, 5 days after cruise is started, you can access days 1 through 5 and once all are completed you have to wait until midnight for the next day to unlock. If on day 5 you skip ahead using gems and complete days 6 & 7, you will either have to keep using gems to skip ahead or wait two days for day 8 to become available.

Based on all previous cruises, each day is progressively harder, therefore it is wise to try to save up 4-coin dishes on your counters. You can reduce your number of chairs to slow sales rates to regular customers, though I would not recommend blocking your door or customers' access to seating as this has been connected to glitches of food disappearing completely!!! It is also wise, ESPECIALLY for low-level players and ESPECIALLY on the last few days, to queue-up 4-coin dishes in the event page BEFORE delivering the last item needed to complete the 'current' day's order requirement.

Please note, it IS possible to do these events at all levels, but low levels have the added challenge of being asked to cook dishes they cannot learn without spending gems to buy equipment, or do not have the coins or pantry space or shop stocks to easily cook items or fill ingredient orders. Upgrading one's pantry, stocking up on peppers and onions and beef, upgrading the shops, unlock the street market are all helpful.

Good luck everyone! :-)

If you start Friday, after midnight Pacific time, It will end Sunday at midnight (Pacific Time) not sure where you are, so maybe that is 2am (technically Monday morning, central time, I think)

If you are at all unsure use a time converter before you start, and to give yourself the most time, do not start *before* midnight, Pacific time, start AFTER midnight, Pacific time. In the last 2 days, especially, pay attention to the in-game clock, as it will tell you exactly how long you have left to complete the event. Good luck & have fun!

Just the 30 minutes it takes. Refresh away!!!

The only advice I would give is to not refresh *just* to get a higher value dish. If a 1-coin dish is asked for that can be cooked quickly and with ingredients that refresh quickly OR that you have in abundance, just do the dish and save yourself 25 minutes. ;-)

They made it so the goal would not expire before the catering event expires, so it doesn't matter that *you* already pressed "Start" - it is 13 days for everyone, so that no matter when they start the cruise (or if it starts automatically) the goal will still be there! ;-)

Sounds good! It is good to weigh the pros and cons, like it seems you are doing. Another problem with a main ingredient like beef is you might get a better use for that beef, like a 4-coin beef dip, which would also take 6 hours, *but* would only use 4 beef, not 10.

If you have enough parts to upgrade any of your shops, you can also be strategic when the cruise asks for ingredients. That is collect the ingredient, then immediately upgrade making that ingredient available straight away at a higher amount. Also good to check the street market, but without a lot of slots you can't rely on it too much.

Ginger chicken and Surf n Turf are going to take awhile, since both use chateau stove (have only one) and I put on split pea soup right before I started the event...

Ah, yes. I *almost* have enough gems to buy either a second chateau stove or a second chateau oven. :-)

See if I can remember my orders exactly thus far:

Slot 1: 10 apples, quiche, tuna casserole (4-coin dish for tomorrow)
Slot 2: 10 milk, chicken noodle soup, stew (4-coin dish for tomorrow)
Slot 3: cheesecake, 10 milk, stuffed peppers (will finish off today)

So all of my dishes completed for day 1 were all 2-coiners, and it looks like tomorrow will go quickly, starting off with two 4-coiners ready to go! If I can I will actually save one of those for day 3, but we will see.

Question: if I buy the extra slot or extra cook, will it stay in my game for future cruise events? If so I'm down to purchase, but if not, that's a lot of gems to waste!

I'm glad you thought it was good! Mostly, I was archiving all your terrific advice so it didn't get lost in the old threads no one looks at anymore. :P

Also, for those curious, the 3 new recipes. It looks like the cupcakes are permenant; the appetizers and steak are not. However, be careful: the cruise event never asks for these temporary dishes, so you probably don't want them taking up your counter space.

They did this with the last event, too, with the shawarma and kebabs. I guess it's a "thing" but an annoying one since we have a cruise going on! I'm going to save the steak for mostly after the event (looks like we should have 4-5 days if we start the cruise on time) and use a lot of mastery spice. The appetizers I'll just throw out as I make them, the ingredients are so cheap who even cares...

Absolutely! The first cruise I did on my lower level accounts they were around the same level as you. Just be methodical and strategic. Set timers so that as you cook or refresh items, you are on top of it, particularly for the last few days. Use these first few days to accumulate some food items in your counters - baked potatoes, french dip come to mind - and then don't be afraid to learn recipes *if* you have the coins just so you have more to cook and less to refresh. Good luck!

The next day unlocks at midnight, Pacific Time, and the last day will end at midnight (Pacific time) regardless of what time you start the cruise.

The only difference it makes for what time of day you start is how long you get before day 2 begins. The first few days are quite easy compared to later days, so it probably won't make much difference. However, if you start the cruise 30 minutes before day 2 unlocks and do not realize you have to make up that time, it could wind up biting you in the butt later.

Sometimes for lower-level players it will give 4-coins for dishes which are later only worth 3 coins. For instance, Lox Bagel or Antipasto Platter.

cuted1011
07-18-15, 11:51 AM
The good news is that the first few days are usually relatively low stress. Use that time to build up your stores and let dishes that aren't helpful fall off your counters. Also, we usually get a few days of leeway on the start date (the event will start but not force you to start for up to a week), so try to time the last 3 days such that they'll fall when you have a lot of play time.

Good luck to you!

Does this mean that my event can start and end a different date than everyone else if I don't click start for a few days?? I never understood it that way. Thanks.

Also, I am a bit confused as to the timing of the event... I'm on CET, so the "midnight" of the game usually is 9am for me. I had the cruise open for me at around 7am on friday and I started on it (it had not been there the previous evening), but when I finished day one around 10am, the game had already progressed to day 2, which started right away... Since the first few days are fairly easy I didnt mind, just wondering how this came to be...

New day unlocks at "midnight". Since you started the first day two hours before "midnight" when you finished 3 hours later, day 2 was already unlocked. If you had started just after "midnight", you would have had to wait 20+ hours before day 2 unlocked.

As for recipes requiring mushrooms, I have previously been asked for tuna casserole, veggie pizza, mushroom risotto AND stuffed mushrooms. Only once each, aside from tuna casserole. I think there must be some algorithm and some dishes are asked for less often, statistically speaking.

That's what I figured, I was just wondering why the cruise would unlock just hours before "midnight" since it has never done that before. Still, I'm not complaining that I got to cross the first two days off in a few hours :)

Mushroom
Mushroom Risotto - 2 (Chateau Stove)
Supreme Pizza - 3 (Pizza Oven)
Tuna Casserole - 3 (Commercial Oven)
Veggie Pizza - 1 (Commercial Oven)
Stuffed Mushrooms - 3 (Commercial Oven)
Coq au Vin - 3 (Chateau Oven)

It'll never ask for Supreme Pizza, but I've been asked for all the rest. Generally, I don't think Stuffed Mushrooms and Mushroom Risotto are worth it; they're both 2-coiners which is rough for such a valuable ingredient. And my Coq au Vin is spiced too, so I feel your pain; I'd only do it on the last day...

If it's any help they way I make my food last longer on my counters is that I place my hostess as far away from the door as possible. I place only 1 table and chair as close to the door as possible. Then I block all my counters EXCEPT 1 which I place as far away from that table as possible. This guarantees that the entire process to feed 1 customer takes as long as possible. Also if you log in routinely you will be able to catch Cid or the other special customers come in and you'll have time to put an extra chair out for them to collect your special item. Just remember to pull away the extra chair. You can also try putting obstacles to make them take longer paths but it's just too much work IMO. Below is a pic of how I set it up.

But, if I deliver a 4 COIN dish when I only need 1 COIN DISH to finish the day, that means that the 3 extra coin that dish has will be lost... correct? The extra 3 coins will not be applied to next day of cooking that starts at 3 am for me, correct?

But, if I were to wait and not deliver anything until after 3 am, would it take 1 coin to finish today and apply the 3 remaining coin to the next day of cooking since it would have been unlocked at that time?

I just hate to waste a 4 coins dish when I only need 1 to finish!

But what if I wait until the next part is unlocked? would they just apply the left over to the next section? If NOT this is so unfair. It's hard enough to get those 4 coins dish.

Yes, it does. If you can try to get as many three or four ship dish orders right before you sent the last order to the ship. Send the last order and once everything is greyed out, start cooking the three or four ship orders. Just for't serve them until the day resets.

QUICK QUESTION...

I need 1 coin to finish my level of cooking for today (requires 5 gems to finish it)... But I have lots of food on my counters where I have everything for those 3 (4 coins dish) to deliver. But, if I deliver a 4 COIN dish when I only need 1 COIN DISH to finish the day, that means that the 3 extra coin that dish has will be lost... correct? The extra 3 coins will not be applied to next day of cooking that starts at 3 am for me, correct?

But, if I were to wait and not deliver anything until after 3 am, would it take 1 coin to finish today and apply the 3 remaining coin to the next day of cooking since it would have been unlocked at that time?

I just hate to waste a 4 coins dish when I only need 1 to finish!


Spend the 5 gems to finish the day, use the 4 coin dish tomorrow. It's your best option.

Agreed.

For myself, especially early on, or if I can very easily cook a 3-coin dish, I'll just send it anyways, despite the fact that some of it will be 'wasted.'. It's just the way the cookie crumbles!! The new day only unlocks once you have finished the previous day, so even if you wait until the new day *can* be unlocked, it does *not* mean the extra credit will be applied to it. Good luck!

My understanding is that if you finish that days goal you have to wait to reset to begin the next days goals. Does that mean I am behind because they just keep moving on for me. They only showed up on Friday for me, and I started them as soon as it showed up. I am on step 4/day 4 which ever it is. Am I confused?

How can you tell how many coins you have left to complete the delivery? Is there a counter somewhere I'm missing?

Hi ChicSeekers. Yes there is a counter, it is right beside the bar that fills up after each delivery. It will tell you how many gems are needed to complete. Today for me was day 3 I needed 200 gems. So the little gem counter starts at 200 and goes down after each filled order. In the pic below right beside the helping hands that I will win it shows that I need 15 gems to complete the day so I will fill the 2 coin dish and that will give me 15 gems.

SMH at myself.

30 helping hands is the reward for that day. Just to the right of that is "finish now" for 15 gems. The amount of credit per dish varies by how many 'coins' it is rated. Here are the values for day 4...


Day 4: 250 gems required

1 coin = 5 gems
2 coins = 15 gems
3 coins = 35 gems
4 coins = 60 gems

So to complete the day, you would need fifty 1-coin dishes or five 4-coin dishes. More likely you'll get a mixture of dishes, but it is not the number of coins which is consistent, but the gem-value to "finish now" which is the constant.

This is a fabulous thread which explains all this and more: http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83244-Cruise-Event-Guide

Here you go:
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x380/annjohnbobbyrae/ccdf23195aa3f205f5d3cf87a0c1beea.jpg

This picture was from a previous challenge. In this part of the challenge, the Egyptian head thingy was the prize for completing this section of the goal. So in this snapshot I have 60 more gems to finish now. I had a two "coin" dish and a three "coin" dish to deliver to the cruise ship. The 2 coin dish was worth 15 "finish now" gems and the 3 coin dish is worth 35 "finish now" gems. Once I deliver them both the "finish now" gems required to complete this section of the challenge will drop by 50 (35 +15). So the gems needed to finish the goal would be only 10. I would only need to cook two 1 coin dishes, each worth 5 gems each, to finish this section of the goal for the day.


Day 5: 250 gems required

1 coin = 5 gems
2 coin = 15 gems
3 coin = 35 gems
4 coin = 60 gems

Oh thank you for doing this. I'm all caught up now with the days it seems and just wanted to make sure the goal was really on Day 5 and that I wasn't behind anymore. Lol.

I haven't finished a cruise event yet.

But I concentrated on upping my store levels and pantry level after the last event.

It has made all the difference!!

Being able to have 3 or 4 of food items is the best help.

This is event so far I am finishing each stage and having to wait for the next stage, which I didn't even know we had to do!

Just keep going, do you best, but collect parts and save you money for store inventory expansions. You'll be glad you did!!

I have to agree :) i managed to finish the last cruise event after upgrading mi general store and veggi market, it's unbelievable how much of a difference being able to collect 1 more item helps on the events.

What I do is that, when I am just a teensy weenie bit away from completing a daily goal to get the reward. I hold it off, refresh the catering event requirements until it fits what I already have hoarded in inventory or what I already have cooked. Or sometimes when I feel like I wanted a four circle requirements which would harvest more goal XP.

Then, I hit the ones that I think would conclude the daily requirement and start the countdown for tomorrow. So when tomorrow starts, I have a boost of what is required since I already had it prepared yesterday =D

Do the extra coins flow into next day when you complete that day's task? E.g if I'd need 5 coins to complete and I have 4-coin dish ready? Does it make sense to submit it or to refresh and wait for additional 30 mins in case you'd get a more suitable one?

no, coins don't go over to the next day, if u only need 10 gems to complete the day and u use a 4 coin dish, u will loose the other points.

DONT refresh a 4 coin dish near the end of the day, if u are able to make it, save it for the next day to have that boost ready :)

Hey, Inztrekfan. I believe the washed up love decoration only belongs on the wall, so if you haven't tried it there yet, that is probably why it shows up red where ever you try and put it.

Dear Gilachaya:
Thank you very much for the info. Now I do not have to master the three dishes which I thought I have to. For the gems, I was asking how many gems to achieve the goal for each day, like day one it requires 75 gems, day two it requires 150 gems. We already know that day 6 requires 300 gems, but how about day 7, 8, 9 and 10? It would be nice if you can try to remember the amount of gems that are required to complete each day's task. Thank you!!!

Day 1: 75 Gems Required
Day 2: 150 Gems Required
Day 3: 200 Gems Required
Day 4: 250 Gems Required
Day 5: 250 Gems Required

Dear Shaumlin,

The first two times he dropped 2 figurines, and the third time he dropped one. I played 3x since my first post. I used gems to speed it up to get the first cake baked.

the cupcake is on new appliance and will stay available even if u don't complete event, the appetiser and steak are just bonus dishes, and will disappear after the timer. U don't need to master any to complete the cruise event. :)


If u do decide to do the steak and appetiser mastery lvls for both are :

Have a problem and wonder if there is a solution. For past events I could load up (add button) all my 4 coin dishes prior to finishing the daily goal so everything would be ready for the next day. However for this event as soon as I load even one item that contains enough coins to fulfill the daily requirement, everything greys out and won't let me load (add button) anything else. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks

You have to load but not deliver, once you deliver everything for the day you can't load stuff anymore. Is that the problem? And if not, can you screenshot it?

I've looked through the thread and haven't seen the recipe cards for the event appetizers. Has anyone learned these? I am interested to know what the coin rate is for them both. I haven't yet because I have no counter space. Does anyone have a screenshot? Thank you for your time :)

You are correct. This is what I use to be able to do. I can't post screen shots. Sorry. But now for this event say I only have 15 gems left to finish for the day and have two 4 coin dishes and one 2 coin dish. I use to load up the 4 coin dishes first then load and deliver the 2 coin dish to finish the day out with the two 4 coin dishes ready for the next day. Now if I load any of those dishes, the whole thing greys out and won't allow me to load any of the others.

Thank you nmishii! Can't believe those little things take an hour and a half to cook! Do you know how long the steak appetizer cooks for?

I'm glad you thought it was good! Mostly, I was archiving all your terrific advice so it didn't get lost in the old threads no one looks at anymore. :P

Also, for those curious, the 3 new recipes. It looks like the cupcakes are permenant; the appetizers and steak are not. However, be careful: the cruise event never asks for these temporary dishes, so you probably don't want them taking up your counter space.

can you see these? Should be the recipe cards for all 3. And the mastery for the appetizers and the steak (the two limited time dishes) are 6/9/12. The app ingredients are so cheap; I just cooked them during the early days of the cruise and then threw the whole counterful away!

When it greys out, does it deliver the last dish you loaded up to complete the day (e.g., the 4 coin dish?).

Not exactly sure what is happening, but maybe load up the 4 coin dishes before you get down to 60 gems or less, then use the other slot to cook until you hit the gem limit?

That can't be right... Does it grey out, but still say you have 15 gems left? Is whatever item you loaded last still there, or is it possible you accidentally hit 'deliver'???

Did you accidentally 'finish now' and spend 15 gems?
It just doesn't make sense otherwise.
Hope you figure it out, or else I would suggest sending an email to TL support & have them look into it.

What I really absolutely definitely do not like about these cruises is that in the last 2-3 days, and seemingly this time the last 3 days for me, the ship almost always only asks for 1 or 2 coin dishes. I had two 4 coin dishes and a 2 coin dish to start the day off and since then, it's only been 2 coin dishes for me...

I have to say it. I HATE Prime Rib! Cruise has asked me for it every single day for the last 4-5 days. For the two days before that, I kept it sitting there so it wouldn't pop up again. That said, I've been pretty lucky so far for the distribution of dishes between appliances. Getting into the thick of things on day 8. Good times! :-)

Alejandro didn't visit my restaurant but I started the cruise event. I don't think that's normal as the tap Alejandro task has not been completed and I'm not sure if there's any other way to get him to visit so I can tap on him and continue with the cruise event.

You have to finish all 10 days of the cruise event before Alejandro will visit. Most of us, who started right away, are on day 8. Good luck!

I'm the first one to complain when I have issues with S8 events, but I'm also fair so like to give praise when I'm happy with something. ;)
I can honestly say that this is the best event ever! I find it totally fair and balanced and the prizes are lovely!
I've been playing RS2 since December 2014 and this is the first long event that I've been 100% satisfied with lol :p

Wow! I didn't even realise that they asked for that dish! I have tons of it stacked on my counter and I've not been asked for it once! :rolleyes:

hahaha! Guess that's the way it goes. I've got lobster bisque on my counters, and each day have prepared Ratatouille for each new day. I imagine if I switched and prepared prime rib, THEN it'd ask for Ratatouille! I'm normally not much of one for conspiracies, but it is like they know what I have and ask for what I don't! Hope they ask you for it today, instead of me. ;-)

I was so surprised! I'm sure it won't happen again soon though! Congrats Xialio!

I have a question (sorry if this has been asked):
If the ship asks for a recipe that hasn't been learnt yet, if I learn and cook it, will the serving still go to the ship?

I could be wrong here, but I think I had this situation in the last catering event, and the 'learning batch' of whatever the food was did go to the ship. Don't hold me to that though! :)

I'm in the same boat. Today and yesterday have yielded an overwhelming amount of 1-2 coin dishes. I'm starting to fall behind!
