NOTE: There is a bug that doesn't allow us to load food from our counters onto the ship. FrozenTurtle has let us know that the engineers are onto the problem and a new update fixing the bug will be released soon. 8/20

So if I understand this. They are saying cook now instead of serve which will prevent us from using what we have on our counters and we can't stack our dishes. This may force me to close this game for good!

Precisely the issue!

I force-closed and restarted my game.
I deleted and re-installed my game.
It is still telling me to 'cook' items and not giving me the option to LOAD when I have more than enough on my counters.

I have emailed support@storm8.com, got an auto-response, but no idea when I'll hear back.

My best guess is that this is NOT intentional, so hopefully they will fix the bug and we will all have the option again.

just finished cooking Lox Bagal for boat, with 720 on mi counter, thinking that maybe if cooked what it's asking for it may allow mi to use from counter too. Just a thought, as obviously TL has decided that they need to make it even more difficult to complete these cruise events. But nope, 320 in boat, still 720 on counter and needing to cook again to complete order.

If this is not a bug then mi for 1 am disgraced with TL as this makes it impossible to actually complete these events without paying through the nose for gems, so players like myself who literally do not have hours upon hours to sit in a game or do not buy gems are unable to complete it.

I struggle to complete these cruise events as it is, now without being able to use food from counters I have no chance of getting anywhere close to completing cruise......and to be honest I don't play them for the gems the cakes give (although it's a bonus) I try complete them for the recipies.

Catering page looks 'normal' except for the two items I have on my counters, instead of saying 'load' it says 'cook' - unlike previous cruises.

That is the question. As I understand it, S8 can submit the update, but it can take up to a week to be processed and released by apple. Please correct me if I am wrong, and "up to a week" can mean as little as a few days, but impossible to know for sure.

If I had not already started the event, I would definitely wait to start for at least a few days to be closer to a fix.
The first few days won't be so bad, but further on this could become very problematic!

If the ship has requested a certain dish, once you cook it and serve it, it will automatically go to the ship. Check your ship to see if the servings went to the ship.

Yes, I think it's possible.

When I finished previous Wedding Cruise, I did not know yet about this forum - and sooooo many usefull tips from you all.
I have no idea about stacking counter. My strategy is manage the storage and appliances, use Helping Hands (reward on day-3), use gems about 20 (install any ads games for this rewards), buy from street markets - and finished just 5 minutes before timeout.

I think rather than complain can not using the last strategy, may be it will more challenging to find out new one for this new rules... At least there's something new to learn.

Yes! My other half tells me that removing most of the chairs and stacking food on the counters is cheating and he doesn't do it. He only cooks what the ship orders, his customers just get the leftover portions.

The only time he uses gems is to pay a few (usually 5 or 6) gems to finish the day so he can have 3 or 4 coin orders in all slots ready to give him a good start the next day.

It's hard work and time consuming compared to my method and I hope they fix the bug. It should be possible to complete the event if they don't though.

NB. He is level 45 now. I guess it'll be a lot harder for lower level players and those who've recently levelled up to unlock a new store.

If we cant use food from the counters, I think at least time to refresh an order should be reduced! It's ridiculous ship asks me at the same time for carrot cake, pepperoni pizza and quiche from the very same oven!

I think it's possible, I finished the first cratering event with no food stacking. It was a nightmare though! You have to check the game constantly, serving food right when it's ready to put another dish to cook. Even with food stacked it takes game checking, you just save time on 4 coin dishes (well I personally stack only 4 coin and few 3 coin dishes). I have free time now so I would probably able to complete event even even they won't fix the bug, but I just think it wouldn't be fair to people who don't have that much time on hands.

It does work with coin decor, I bought a chalkboard sign 30 coins just for this goal.

I bought a chalkboard but it doesn't work... so i try with other coin decor and it doesn't work either... i didn't want to use gems because i was afraid to lose them, but finally i try with the sunflower and it does work.
But nice that coin decor works for you :)

Not that this is a really big deal or anything but I'm on android, and when I tap the cruise ship it doesn't do anything but make the horn sound.... my orders dont load so I have to tap on the countdown timer *10 days* or whatever it is.

Sometimes a promotional goal will only be available to iOS or Android players as not all games are available on both platforms, or they receive updates at different times.

On iOS if you get a promotional goal and complete it by downloading and playing the game that action unlocks another goal, that will reward you the same number of gems as Android players. I think I once heard that this was because of restrictions enforced by apple, but I can't remember when or where I saw that, so I'm not sure whether it's accurate.

A few S8 staff have said that Apple (and Android) don't allow us to get rewarded directly for downloading an advertised app, so S8 reward you through another goal triggered by downloading and playing the new app.

It is also terrible for those who don't have any space available on their counters because its completely filled up with existing orders. Because the system only requires 1 1/2 servings for each order, 1/2 of the food is stuck on stove or oven and prevents you from using it until one of the counters becomes free. UGHH...so frustrating.

That's strange - the excess food only lands on my counters if there's available space. If all my counters are full the excess food just goes towards the cruise order as well

I play on an iPad, and always get gems for the new game downloads. You must first download and play the game. Return to your original game and do what it requests for the award. It is usually cook something or buy something. Once you do this, you should be awarded 30 gems. Often it continues with "reach level 15" in the new game for another 15 gems.

Sorry new to this game level 26. I've done the wedding event now working on Alaskan event. I use an Android device. Couple questions. Where in the goal do you have to use gems to complete? And I've completed day 2 received the second prize (sled) now it's making me wait almost 12 before I can load more food. Is this typical?

After you have completed your day it will lock until the next day.
I believe they are referring to another Pop up goal called Delightful Decor that uses gems and not the Cruise.

It means you don't have to start the event right away. My guess is in day 10 it will automatically start for everyone.

For the reason ariffraff said and also, I think you'll need to cook the Baked Alaska recipe using the ingredients Sesi drops (if you complete the event) before the 20 day timer runs out. I think this happened with Nefertiti and Alejandro in previous events but I'm not certain, I looked through the threads but couldn't find no definite answers. If I'm wrong someone please correct me!

If you've completed a day early and you are preparing food for the next day, do not serve them! Maybe everyone else knew this but I served my tuna casserole thinking it would go to the ship. I knew that I wouldn't be able to count towards the next day (because it was still locked). Instead, it went onto an empty counter. Onto the counters that we can no longer load food from. I just wanted to cry! My precious mushrooms. :( Now I have to cook 3 batches instead of 2 :rolleyes:

I really don't stock up food for the cruise events except for orders locked from the day before but am happy when an order comes in for food I do have on my counters. I think they would have fixed the problem with the food not loading from the counters by now if they really wanted to. If the problem benefitted us, say the daily gem total was changed to coins, and it required an update, it would have been fixed real quick.

Just realized that none of my food on the counters are counting towards to cruise ship. All my counters are full with thousands of dishes and I can't empty the stoves to cook new orders. I was afraid of this. As soon as we share tips and strategies on here, it always gets taken away from us.

Just realized this too. Plus all my counters are full so I can't empty the ovens to re cook everything. If this isn't a glitch, someone should have let us know beforehand that the cruise events have changed. I'm stuck with my only options are too throw away thousands of dishes or get behind and wait an entire day for food to clear.

I don't think it's intentional. Frozen Turtle said that the fix will need an update and it takes a few days for update to show up in the App Store, so even if they already fixed it we won't see an update right away. It's sad, but I think it's not really good for their business either coz happy clients always willing to pay more money than mad ones haha.

Then when it refreshed to Cheesecake I have 340 Cheesecake on my counters yet it's not prompting me to add from counters. I uninstalled and re-installed and still nothing. I cooked the Cheesecake and then it would let me add yo the order but still no prompt to add from counter. I hope it's just a bug since I could load the Lobster Sandwich.

I did not update to the latest version and started the Alaskan cruise by accident. The first thing it asked for was the lobster sandwhich. I set two up to cook and then I saw a little ship over the plates. I clicked on it and it prompted me to load from counters. I clicked the button and it loaded. I'm on my second day and it is still loading from the counters. So it seems the glitch was loaded into the game with the last update. So if you want to play the game and haven't update I would suggest waiting to do the current update. Now if there is a way for you to roll back to before you did the last update I wonder if it will fix anything. Just my thoughts.

Have a blessed Saturday.

I primarily play on my Ipad. But decided to check the game on my Android phone. It loads the food from my counters on android, if that could help anyone who also has access to an android device too.

Otherwise, I look forward to something else that allows me to cook it for gems. But my gosh, my sugar and cream supply will be stretched even further. Speaking of, why is cheese in the dairy and cream isnt? Why is regular rice in the dairy but that sushi rice was near the meat?

Nerermind! Let me stop asking questions that make sense. Good luck, everyone! Lets make some baked alaska together.

I saw posted that it was a glitch in the update, as I did not update I thought I would try and cook my item for tomorrow because I'm locked up for the day. Unfortunately I misscounted my gems this morning and didn't set up my orders great starting off tomorrow. Here are two pics. The first shows my three orders and at the time I did not have anything on my counter after reading it was a glitch in the new update I decide to cook both of the orders the first one is done and I served it onto my counter. I have the option to load from counter!

I think TL said that engineers is looking into the problem, but it will need another update through App Store to be fixed. So it might take a few days. I think you should wait a bit just in case. I started event already and first few days is usually easy, but I have no clue how I'm gonna finish last days if there would be no update at all... :<

Sorry about this! Our engineers have investigate the issue that's preventing you from loading existing dishes on your counters to the catering event. Unfortunately, it looks to require an app update to fix this issue. We're very sorry for the inconvenience!

Here is the official response we have had. They ARE fixing it, but will require an app update, which unfortunately means several more days because they submit it to the App store, then it gets processed and released usually after a few days. (((The time the App store takes to release it is completely out of Storm8's control))).

Hoping it is quick, and managing to cook orders as they are asked for in the mean time.

See above post for info from Storm8. If I were you, and I wanted the most advantage towards successfully completing this event (especially if you are at a lower level), I would wait to start the event either until the fix is released, or until it starts automatically, whichever happens first

For those of us who have already started, we need to switch gears, and cook things to order. Use the 'refresh' option strategically.
The first few days aren't too difficult at all, but the further along we get, the more of an issue this glitch will be. But sometimes life is like that. <3

personally I don't think it is a glitch, I think that it's an addition with the new update and it's being played off as a glitch so TL don't look like the bad guys. I have mailed support and have still not heard back from them and now almost 3 days in and still nothing. normally I would be just about getting ready for the next day by now but not being able to load from counter am still 75 gems off and everything it's asking for I already have on mi counters, but can't use.....really really annoying lol

Yes! My other half tells me that removing most of the chairs and stacking food on the counters is cheating and he doesn't do it. He only cooks what the ship orders, his customers just get the leftover portions.

The only time he uses gems is to pay a few (usually 5 or 6) gems to finish the day so he can have 3 or 4 coin orders in all slots ready to give him a good start the next day.

It's hard work and time consuming compared to my method and I hope they fix the bug. It should be possible to complete the event if they don't though.

NB. He is level 45 now. I guess it'll be a lot harder for lower level players and those who've recently levelled up to unlock a new store.

How is it cheating? Im sorry, just asking. Points arent given or taken away from doing what you can in whichever way, to get to the last day and win the recipe.

We wont get more or less gems once we cook it, based on how we play.

Its a pest but Im alterating between playing my 2nd account for gems and loading my main account on my phone so I can switch food over.

I think its lame how the goal is still rolling considering only andeoid users can play it, how its normally done. Otherwise you have to use something short of sorcery to get through the days quickly on ios.

I removed all but 8 chairs. My counters are stacked like Dolly Parton and im trying to make every dish I remember them asking for. To keep myself from getting annoyed im doing the goal line where we can win that cute fountain.

They acknowledged the issue with the bug and know we arent making it up or its not so random. So it would be in good taste to postpone it like others have mentioned. Or give us the darn recipe and just go another event or something with a 2nd recipe once they fix the problem.

Each cruise has long times between goals. When I use gems to try to get ahead in fear of not being able to finish, I am penalized by longer times between goals. I feel like if we pay to get ahead, we shouldn't be penalized. Can't Storm just get rid of lag times between goals and let us keep playing? This is ridiculous

I'm just curious are these 'challenges' just as hard for everyone. I'm level 23 and they ask for potato soup, baked potato, and potatoes themselves... It would take me 2 weeks just to collect all those potatoes. Just wondering if its the same for everyone. (I liked the Bon festival it was manageable, these cruises are in achievable)

If the cruise ask you too muck potatoes, you can refresh one or two orders, so you have less potatoes to get.

I think he's mostly just teasing me because I stack food and it makes completing the cruises much easier for me.

He does say that it's playing by the letter of the law, but not in the spirit of the law.

That's just his opinion. I didn't mean it as a criticism of anyone who stacks food, I usually do! I think I'll still be able to complete the event, but it'll be harder work than normal. I'm glad I've upgraded most of my stores to stock 4 since the last cruise!

It's day 4 for me and I'm struggling to get the requirements done without the ability to stack. Not necessarily because of the cooking time but because my pantry is near full so I can't prep enough ingredients ahead if time. My pantry is full because I can't use ingredients to pre cook/stack food, can't pre cook food or my counters get too full and can't pre cook because I'm stuck cooking all day for the cruise ship one dish at a time waiting for ingredients because my pantry is full!

I have two of almost every stove but can't use them because of the above issues. Please fix this ASAP. There's no way I'm going to make it through the last few days of requirements at this rate.

Is it normal that everytime I get a reward, the cruise stops and blocks everyting for 11 hours and say ''enough for today, wait until other goals are unlock'', then it asks for 200 gems to keep going...

I mean that's kind of unfair, I feel like they'll do anything to take money out of you or stop you from getting rewards or finishing the cruise

Yes, that's how all the cruise events are. If you skip a day or two then you can avoid that because then two or threes will be opened at one time. However you then take a chance of not finishing the event on time if you fall behind. The event is exactly 10 days once activated.

I don't think it's unfair, it's just a mechanic of the event that you are given one day to complete the orders and get on the next day. If you finish earlier you have to wait. I mean it might be hard but otherwise it would be too easy. You can pay gems but it's not like you have to, on higher levels you can finish the event without spending gems, even low levels was able to progress really far and even get through the last day. It might be harder now coz you can't stack food on iOS but otherwise I don't really see how they trying to get money out of you.... Some people are willing to pay and they give that option for those people and I think it's fair.

If he wants to play blindfolded and an arm tied around his back - then by all means do so! However, where would we be in life if we ALL did everything the exact same way? There would be no winners in marathons, baseball games, no innovation, and certainly, can you imagine how boring art and music would be (just to name a few examples)?

Ahhhh, I see now. Thanks for answering! He likes being kept on his tippie toes, thats for sure. At least he wont be bored waiting until those hours wind down for the next day. Although im exhausted already for going back and forth between android and ios.

Im not worried about the dragon tourney, whatever the fishing foolishness was on farm 2 and am barely finishing the fantasy forest storybook goal.

Someone mentioned they dont think this is a glitch. I believe it is. Otherwise this would be another ios and android discrepancy they would have caused.

precisely mi thinking too :)

yes we all know that an event that's too easy is no fun at all, but the cruise event is difficult enough to complete even with using food already on the counters and we ourselves have no control over what dishes the ship will ask for, so we are still cooking blind in respect of these events, we can anticipate but we can't know lol. the players of the game are themselves freely giving help and advice for other players to help achieve the goals, this in itself should be great for TL but nope......once we seem to figure out a system that works for all players to some extent it's changed....

Has anyone figured out a way to revert back to version 1.7.3? In this you are still able to load from your counters. It appears to only have changed in the be updated version. If you can figure out how to roll back to the previous version until TPB can get the "glitch" or "bug" fixed, then the game state doesn't change. Hope this helps. I have not done the August 17 update and this is why I am still able to load from counters. I have iPhone 5s

The same thing happened to me the other day with my 2 California Roll's and we all know how long Salmon takes to buy again!
The constant refreshing in the game is a joke, and it's always way worse when these events are on.
People have been complaining about this issue for ages now and still nothing is being done about it. :mad:
As Fran mentioned, it's always good to wait a few minutes until the game settles down which I do do, but something the refresh still steals food at random times and there's nothing you can do about it, or prevent it :rolleyes:

Current game version does not allow anyone to load dishes from their counters, only direct from the appliances.

I see that not being able to load pre-cooked food is a known bug, but right now it is killing me. Not realising there was a bug I have run out of Lobster after making the requested Lobster Thermidor and they are back for Surf and Turf . I have what the need, but they want fresh cooked. :'(

9 hours until I get more lobster, so I am hoping after 30 min. I have a request for something I can make!

Has there been info on when the fix is going to happen? My game is at a complete stand still. If I can't pre cook or stack then I can't make anything to clog up my counters or use up ingredients. Once I'm done with the ship order for the day, my game sits idle. There's less playing now than before the event started.

There are no plans to extend this event, but we will be addressing the issue before the next catering event. Sorry!

So more than half the players playing may not be able to finish? Because this bug cant get fixed in time and you all wont work with them to make considerations? That stinks.

I thankfully had rice for 3 coins, with onions and bell peppers on deck. Im waiting the 2 hours to load the onions and peppers and hope that helps me get off to a good start with this new day. In the meantime, Im cooking long hour food on my 2nd account, so help me log in easier for my main account.

If im a player that has food from the counters not counting, Id keep making a fuss to see if they will give you all the chance to collect ingredients from to make the dessert.

I have never completed an event prior to learning about stacking. Always missed on the last two days. Once I learned about the stacking, coin dish worth and slowing customers I finally finished an event. I'm really upset that some of us are at such a disadvantage while others are not. It should be a even playing field. It's just not fair.

I just started playing rs2, kinda giving it another try. I didn't like it when it first launched, so I started again recently and still not sure. Anyways it's my first event. I just open seafood shop yesterday and pantry is still small. So far I'm struggling every day, I doubt I can make it at all to the end. It seems it's easy only if you have a bottomless pantry and expanded all shops to max quantity and at higher level. IMHO these events aren't meant for lower levels or others like myself who is struggling despite playing for many hours. I guess it's just not fair like you said.

Has anyone completed any event by not stacking food and not using gems? Ie cooking when the order comes? Any good advise for a newbie?

I've never completed an event without stacking food, but there's a few things I've had to do this time round which seem to be working so far.

Ditch basic ingredients - I've cleared my pantry of all chicken, tuna, seaweed, cream, sugar, and even garlic, basil, ginger and vanilla. I can use this pantry space to stock up on much needed ingredients with long refresh times like mushrooms, peas, salmon and the likes. I only buy back those basics when they are needed.

Constant refreshing - If I think a dish isn't worth the coins, I refresh straight away! Some recipes use up ingredients that you want to stock up on like peppers, mushrooms, salmon, lobster to name a few. I just got a 2 coin order for stuffed peppers, which would use up 6 peppers. For just 2 coins (18 gems)?! Refresh.

Use the street market as much as possible - Inbetween visiting neighbours or waiting for a new ship order, I will check the street market every 10 minutes, again looking for those ingredients with long refresh times. Although the costs can be high sometimes, shelling out 500 coins for some lobster can help you get that tomato bisque worth 4 coins cooking a good 10 hours earlier.

Only cook what the ship requests - You don't want waste your ingredients in dishes that have no purpose. During the event, your main focus (if it was) is no longer to make money or keep counters full. If you want your counters full, by all means, turn your chairs/block the doors or however you want to do it. During these events though, even more so now we can't use counters to our advantage, I only cook what I'm asked to.

Save 4 coin dishes! - Once I get at least past the halfway mark, I keep my eyes peeled for those 4 coin orders. You can begin working on them, cooking the dish or collecting the requested item, but we won't be sending them off to the ship just yet! Try to finish the rest of the day using the other 2-3 slots (depending on if you've bought the extra slot). If another 4 coin order appears, do the same! Then you'll have only 1 or 2 slots left to finish the day with. Doing this will guarantee you at least one 4 coin order ready to send off to the ship the next day. Who doesn't like a head start? Remember, only try this if your day has a few gems left to finish (I start this around the 100-75 gem mark) as you'll have less slots to work with.

I really hope these little tips can help anyone struggling. I'd hate to see someone not get through this because of a mistake on S8's part. Of course everyone's strategies are different, this is just how I've got through the last 5 days. Best of luck :)

Thank you LonePudding. :D Your advises are very helpful esp for newbie like myself. I ditched all basics, keeping only things that take more than 5hrs like peppers potatoes. I refresh all the time mainly cos of seafood dishes, I just open seafood yesterday so haven't learn those dishes yet. Umm no market street atm. And definitely cooking and using the ingredients when required. I guess I am struggling cos my pantry and shops aren't at max size yet. It takes days just to collect 10 peppers.. I guess maybe tl is discouraging lower level players like myself from events. Maybe they like us to gem thru it. Idk. So far I'm swimming upstream to Alaska. Lol :D

You're welcome :) I managed to win my first catering event around level 28 (the Egyptian Escapade), and I wouldn't have been able to complete it without my game glued to my hands! I was literally playing every minute! They really do make it difficult for those of us just starting out :( When the event is over, focus on upgrading your pantry, vegetable and seafood shops. They'll be a big help in the future

For sure I will focus on those you mentioned after this. If I survive lol. Many thanks for your advise, much appreciated. :D

Good luck to all. :)

I am playing without refreshing nor stacking, plus was at my grandma's funeral for the past week and will be busy till after the cruise ends. So far I'm still doing well!

I started stacking ingredients soon after the Bon festival and that has helped sooo much. Any ingredient I know takes more than 2hrs I stack everything else can be used as needed. No cooking outside of cruise request until the event is over. Use up any spices that's taking up space. If any request asks for a recipe I need to master I use my mastery spice on the second round of cooking it as the first one goes straight to the ship so just in case it doesn't count.

Same as lonepud any thing that is not worth cooking from the cruise request gets refreshed especially if the ingrediants take long to restock. 4 coined recipes I always make sure I have enough ingredients to make the two batches. I check the market to see if the ingredients for the second batch are there, then I start the first batch and buy from the market.

Also what's helped me once I'm almost complete for the day I do most of the 1 coin and 2 coin recipes to finish but before I do I make sure at least one or two of the remaining recipes waiting is a 4 coin recipe ready for the next day and I have the first batch cooking. Or if it's a 4 coin request for eg peppers I make sure I have 7 and by the next day I collect the other 3 and that 4 coins ready to go immediately. Not sure I'm explaining very well. That has helped a lot!

Those are great tips! I just finished day 6 leaving 2 4 coin orders and a 3 coin order. French dip, tuna casserole and 10 broccoli. I have two French dips cooking and two casseroles cooking, with the next batch of 4 vegetables completing the brocolli order. At the beginning of this event I bought my 2nd commercial oven, it's been a great help!

Perfect! Meaning by tomorrow your well under way to tackle what might be requested, which is what has been saving my bacon lol or else I'd be swamped. Wish I figured this out sooner but hey you live and learn. First cruise ship I'm enjoying and not panicking about nor glued to my device for...happy days :)

Has anyone completed any event by not stacking food and not using gems? Ie cooking when the order comes? Any good advise for a newbie?

I have completed all the events without stacking any food or using gems. With all my shops giving 6 items per refresh and having had all recipes unlocked forever I probably don't count in these equations anyhow lol. Once your shops are giving at least 4 or 5 items per refresh you'll find it much much easier!!

I never stacked food as well... Not in the fortunate situation that my shops at all at 6 or knowing all the recipes... But doing exactly like described in the last posts...

What also helps me a lot is to be patient... If I have a dish ready which would help me finish the day but there are two orders with let's say 3 or 4 coins available I cook them already... So the next day I have at least 6 coins worth of coins ready to go and only have to click deliver

Hopefully we all come through and can serve another pink cake... I love all the cakes and pies we earned the last events :)

Good luck!!!

I'm definitely in the same league... So much so that I had to resort to challenging myself extra to finish. :P ok stop bragging, now!

I have always had a problem keeping my counters full, so each event I have done without stacking. It's a bit time consuming, and I make sure the four star recipes are ready to go the next day.

So far doing ok.
Haven't finished a long event yet, but not losing hope.

Really love that colorful sky wallpaper, but not willing to drop 70 gems on it

Added a section to the Cruise Guide about what to do when you can't stack your counters, with LonePudding's excellent advice from earlier in the thread. I'll add anything else I see that would be helpful for what to do when the event bugs like this.

But i have no money in it and cant get cid to drop the right items. But happy to say the bad one is one the coins and good one almost done with todays... i was not able to keep up last cruise with either account but learned a lot from yall and it seems to be working.

Wow 6 items! That seems like a dream to me atm. :) I can't wait to cruise fast and easy on power boats like you guys. In the mean time, I shall keep rolling with my baby oars in the big ocean. :D

I would like to upgrade all my stores but I don't have enough hammers. I haven't had a hammer drop in at least three weeks.

I know the feel... Didn't have any hummers in a while, can't upgrade anything pretty much. So annoying...

Any word on when they are fixing the bug? They said soon on the 20th....soooo should I wait or what?

Also, could we address the reloading that the game does? It sucks when you put something on the ship and the game reloads and your food isn't on the ship or on the appliance. It's just gone and that makes a sad sad day for me.

Yes, back on topic, Kooky, when is this bug going to be fixed? It's ridiculous that this game has such quick events, such fast turn around, we so quickly lose opportunities to buy decor, and yet when we do what we're "supposed" to do and quickly DL your new updates, we're penalized by bugs that interfere with these events and no recourse in sight. Makes playing a game extremely frustrating and no fun. Why has this not been fixed or at least addressed?

...and for anyone wondering when the event would automatically begin, that would be yesterday.

I was hoping the fix/update would be released before starting the event on my two lower-level accounts, but alas, no.

Unfortunately, the only thing we know is that it will be fixed by the next event. This, to me, doesn't sound like they're in any rush to get the fix out anytime in this event :(

they are in no rush to fix it coz they are hoping players will buy gems to complete this cruise event due to thier error, benefitting themselves....oh well the players suffer and loose out while they sit doing nothing to help fix thier error.......saying it will be done by the next cruise is of no help to players, who play ur games to chill out and relax, not get even more stressed due to incompetence and unwillingness to give something back to the players.

I just got those as well but they are all old tasks that I've already completed. As soon as you click on them they are completed! Except expanding restaurant. And I have like three of those! Also I have to cook a bunch of things like French toast, sugar cookies, chicken Alfredo's and stuff like that but it will have to wait until after the cruise because my counters are full.

Cruise related: These new decorations are so cute! I wish I could afford the Northern Lights wallpaper for 70 gems! Just finished day 6 and have 3 four coin orders lined up for tomorrow!
