There is a new Cruise Ship Event! :D
You will need to be on at least level 10 to have this event.

Cruise Event Guide (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83244-Cruise-Event-Guide)

Prizes: iOS users will get an appliance with recipes and a ghost chef.
Android will get the appliance and recipes but no ghost chef.


Walt;1193977']Sorry for the confusion! We've reduced the timer for the Catering Helpers, so you'll be able to collect from them once an hour. Additionally there is a chance to get up to 4 Cruise Coins each time you collect.

Looks like first day is 75 gems worth and is following similar pattern of coin/gems.

4 coins = 45 gems (I delivered 10 onions)
3 coins = 26 gems (I delivered 10 lemons)

I am very disappointed that the catering helper I bought in the last event for 250 gems is not permanently unlocked. That is a ripoff.

Love the whole idea of the ghost stove and the pirate ship the only issue I have is by the time we complete this event Halloween will be over and we will just then get to start making the new recipes on the ghost stove. Just wish this would've come out earlier in the month but again I do love the stove and new recipes so thanks S8:)

I'm going to be out of town for 6 days next week so I won't be starting the event for awhile so that it will end a few days after my trip. So can someone post the prizes for the event so I know what I shouldn't buy? Thanks.

Also, two new recipes were released that are available for 15 days:

1) Ghost Cupcakes on the Diner Oven (7 hrs to learn)
2) Candy Corn Cheesecake Pumpkins on the Commercial Range (2.3 hrs to learn)

I haven't waited for it to start automatically, but I think 5 days. That would coincide with the 2 recipes finishing in 15 days. I'm going to wait for it to start automatically this time so will know for sure in a short time.

Okay, I have a question. Let's say I start my cruise, and I cannot complete the orders before the game day is over (let's use midnight for convince), then I complete them later, does my game automatically go on to the next day, or do I have to wait for midnight again?

Yes. All days automatically start at the same time each day once the event is activated whether or not you complete a day. So if it takes you two days to complete a day, the next day will already be unlocked when you do finish that day.

Just an FYI: twice now I've started a recipe and when I go back, there is nothing on the stove and I have to start over. This is not the usual sync issue. I've played this game for close to two years and know the difference. So be careful everyone. If you find the same thing happening to you then you May want to go back into the game 5 minutes later to be sure what you are cooking is actually cooking.

This should be much easier with a larger pantry and the street market, neither of which I had for the last cruise. But all the 4 coin dishes I've gotten so far are either not unlocked or require something I dont have yet, like the deli. So I am stuck with the 1-2-3 coin ones again. :mad:

It says "can" not "will" so it won't give you a quick serve every time. More likely won't get one. I got one in 12 servings.

Honestly these events are so frustrating for new players like me. I'm level 22 and can't progress normally because everytime there's an event it automatically takes the food for the ship. I do click "later" when it tells me about an event, but I guess it doesn't work.

I don't know, but can the stove be purchased with gems after the event is finished? The recipes look too adorable.

I'm not sure if I'm understanding you correctly. You don't have to participate in any of these events. Just ignore it. It will automatically start on the last 10 days. But if you don't load any of the ships, it won't take anything and will expire after 10 days. So yes you can proceed normally.

I started feeling the same way about two cruises ago. They actually get harder when you have more. Makes no sense. You would think it would get easier.

Can you only play this in the Halloween edition of the game? The cruise event is not showing up in the zone where they normally have it set up. I have opened and forced closed it a couple times but nothing. I did see that I had the option of buying the ghost stove for 2000 gems. And two new recipes on stove and oven but no cruise.

if u do t want to participate in the cruise and keep all ur food going to counters and not the ship, refresh every dish ship asks for till u finally get 3 u can't cook, then leave them sitting there :) all food goes to counters and ship will depart on time with hungry passengers lol :)

Small question... Just reached level 27 and would like to do the cruize event but after getting the salad bar and seafood shop, I only have 10k coins left and havent unlocked any ingredients from the seafood shop. If i did the event, would some of the food that I was required to make be of items I didnt have yet... Like any ingredients from the seafood shop? I have 6 dishes left to learn across my appliances aswell... Would I be able to complete the event at all?

I'm helping my friend's level 25 character play the cruise, and I haven't even been able to get the seafood shop nor the commercial oven. To tell you the bad news, yes they'll still ask for stuff that's available to your level even if you haven't been able to unlock them yet, tough luck.
Not sure how far I'll be able to take her character through the cruise, but so far we are doing fine, and so is my own level 55 character as well.

No, they don't ask for orders of anything tpbeyond 8 hours, so salmon and onions are fair game but never lobster, butter, mushrooms, the ship just doesn't request them. So don't stock them up!

Don't ever have all of your chairs and tables out at once! Always keep just one pair, the food is going away in such a slow rate you will never have a problem either with the quantity of food to send to the ship or problems like the one you just had!!

Stove is a prize for completing an event so I really don't think you will need to pay for it, just to make sure you completed all 10 days.

Never from the pizza oven, Valentine oven or celebration stove. None of the previous quest dishes (as in, if the dish was a prize of a previous quest) will be asked for either.

Started late so I'm behind a day (so that I could stock ingredients and load up on 3 and 4 coin dishes). So far, I've been able to complete each day within a few hours (I finished day 6 in literally 10 min with a stroke of luck). I'm hoping my luck continues until the end and that I get asked for these dishes I already prepared :)

Ok as soon as this is over I need to save up for a deli. Breaks my heart to keep refreshing all the 4 coin orders that require the deli to get a 1 coin sugar cookie or hamburger order. It's going slowly because of that but I'm still finishing much quicker than I did on the first cruise.

I'm afraid I'm going to level up during this cruise & start getting asked for drinks from the drink maker. Does anybody know what the drink maker costs? If I can't afford it I'm going to be refreshing a lot! Thanks.

Just a recommendation: It can actually be faster to cook one and two-coin dishes than refreshing. Plus it gives you some progress. Especially if it uses items with fast refresh times. Good luck!

I like those events and i pile food on my counters. I run in the problem that i run out of counters and have to dump food. I think we should get a NEW TYPE of counter. Like a FOR SALE counter where you could put on it food that you want to sell FIRST and only sell that until its gone. This way i wouldnt get in a situation where the darn server grabs a dish and then i am short 1 to deliver when its needed. So please let have an event or something where we can get a FOR SALE counter that would allow us to decide which of out food should be sold first. After all this is my restaurant and i should have control on what food sells first. Thanks for listening

I levelled up to drinks maker midway during the previous cruise. I though i had to do refresh a lot of drinks but it wasnt as bad as i thought. I couldnt remember how much was the first drinks maker but the second one costs 480,000 coins. I managed to finish that cruise and bought the drinks maker after. i could afford the drinks maker during the cruise but i needed more coins for unlocking ingredients and learning recipes. So I bought it after the cruise instead of during. Now its servicing me well for this cruise. Good luck to you. :)

I like those events and i pile food on my counters. I run in the problem that i run out of counters and have to dump food. I think we should get a NEW TYPE of counter. Like a FOR SALE counter where you could put on it food that you want to sell FIRST and only sell that until its gone. This way i wouldnt get in a situation where the darn server grabs a dish and then i am short 1 to deliver when its needed. So please let have an event or something where we can get a FOR SALE counter that would allow us to decide which of out food should be sold first. After all this is my restaurant and i should have control on what food sells first. Thanks for listening

I love this idea!

I'm afraid I'm going to level up during this cruise & start getting asked for drinks from the drink maker. Does anybody know what the drink maker costs? If I can't afford it I'm going to be refreshing a lot! Thanks.


Hi! The drink machine is 320,000 coins! I haven't bought it yet but it is unlocked for me. I wouldn't worry too much about getting drinks to serve I get a couple each cruise but just refresh.

Day 8

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

edit(KP) added to Post 1

hey yugaxi (or anyone else that's ahead of me on this cruise), would you mind adding how many gems are required for each day? it's just nice to know ahead of time how much you'll be required to do, so you can plan ahead... though, of course, I guess we can just assume that each day is more gems than the day before.

Edited to Add: actually, i checked and it looks like this cruise has the exact same requirements so far that the British Cruise had. So here's the link, if folks want, so you can look ahead and know what to expect. I haven't checked, the previous cruises, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're all the same...

Can someone please explain to me why this game steals ingredients from you. I had 8 beef 1 hour ago. Just logged back in, it took 5 waiting to be purchased away and started the 2 hour timer, leaving me with only 3, and prime rib to cook for cruise. This action is so wrong on so many levels. I get this is a ploy to get me to spend money on gems, but come on TL..totally unfair to take away something that was already given and worked for.

It happens to most of us. I've lost beef, onions, mushrooms, etc. the game refreshes for no reason due to bad coding. Never had the issue with any other TL game. Sometimes the food shows up again and sometimes it doesn't.

I find that this happens when you leave the game running in the background and when you return to the game, its not probably syn with the S8 servers and I lose things. I avoid this by force closing the app and starting it before i play. Hope this helps.

Just wondering if I'm the only one who "accidentally" bought a catering helper? I have no clue how! I'm guessing I was accidentally hit "Buy" when the ad pops up in the beginning! I'm pretty certain It never asked me to 'verify' or click yes a second time! EXTREMELY frustrating considering I have been saving gems for months and they're now gone! Not to mention I never receive more than 5 coin dishes! It's totally a waste unless you have the time to collect EVERY hour!! Ok, rant over!!

So far, my friend's low-level character that I'm helping to play for this cruise, has gone from level 23 or 24, to 28. Currently almost halfway through day 9!
Upgraded pantry from roughly 35 or 40 to 65, upgraded general store to 3 (this may have been just before the cruise though), upgraded veggie to 3, expanded to expansion 6 and built seafood shop then upgraded to 2.
Also bought the deli just before the cruise, and bought commercial oven and salad bar during the cruise.
Learnt a bunch of recipes eg Greek Salad, Cobb Salad, Baked Salmon, Stuffed Peppers, Lox Bagel...and mastered the Candy Corn Cheesecake too!
Feeling rather pleased with myself, really. :)

Ok no fair....4 coin dishes were worth 100 gems yesterday and they're only 75 today. Not as much of a head start as I thought I would have. And this is the second cruise (out of the 2 I've done) where I had 501 as the starting total on day 9 instead of 500. Do the values change depending on level?

I've seen some of my neighbors have finished already. Good luck to everyone on the last day!

I'm the same way with the deli. The only 4 coin orders I've gotten today have been for deli items. With 7 hrs left I'm at 240 gems still needed. I think I can do it as I have some 3 coin orders in progress but it has been slow. Good luck to you!

I have tried all the cruises from the beginning and have not been able to complete any. Last time I was very close but it stopped earlier than I thought. This time I am far from completing. I am going to ignore future cruises or maybe just stop playing.

Oh gosh , guess it is just not my day. the last day of cruise had been cruel to me , keep asking me for dishes that i hvnt stocked, use ingredients that i havenot saved up.
after delivering bacon, order for pepperoni pizza, n BLT just show up afterwards. Order for Cobb salad keeps coming up, as i did not have empty counter, i hv to cook twice to fill every order.
Lobester dishes keeps coming after i used up my stock end of day 9.
as i level up during the event, there is a new drink on drink machine for me to learn, order for it did not show up in previous day, but only on the last day. It takes 17 hr to cook! By the time i finished learning , cruise event will be over. After refreshing, this order still keep showing upin order slot..

Might be because of Low level? My first cruise before this I was only 10+ I have never even gotten any food like onions, green pepper.. sugar n beef n potatoes are the most time consuming... My max cap is 30, n stock was only 2 but it is so much easier.. Imagine steak was always appearing n it is a 4 star dish n yes it is more than 60gems once serve..

Now I am lvl 30+ Cap is 75... My stock refresh is 4 ... I am having so much difficulty :p

Lovejayne: I just came to tell everyone that I just found out the hard way after killing myself for 9 hours that after the dog you still have another whole 'day'. For me I wish I wouldn't have played this event having just spent so much effort. Not worth it. It isn't like I get behind... It just keeps asking for things I haven't unlocked. I guess good luck to everyone still chugging away. It didn't help me any.

It's true, these are harder since you can't get any kind of help and the recipes are so random. If we knew what was coming like the adventures or had help from neighbors like community events, it would be better. There are not enough quick serves to help out and there is no telling what recipe is coming next. It's not fun, it's grinding. The only help is catering or buying another recipe slot but I don't know if it's worth it.

I felt the last 2 days of the cruise is really hard... 500 n 600 gems total... I be honest I came prepare n yes I have a life n work... But I am not going to lie the last 2 days do make me pay attention more... At the start

Day 1 at start I already start to stock up any dish that is 4hrs n above... Potatoes, onions, green pepper. I always stock up 5-6 range
At the end of the day, I make sure I have 2x 3 or 4 star dish to bring over..

I only bother to cook require dish during events... So my restaurant is always without food, I make eggs although I have already master 3 stars just to serve n pick up tools n stuffs.. N come back 1 or 2 hrs later... My inventory is full of stock

Although I have 4sugar or cream I do not make dish or replenish because of space obviously... I just WAIT n serve require dish.. Yes there are times I skip 1 or 2 star dish or I do not have the server to make them..

Only the last 2 days is really hard... I am hit always hit with 10x green pepper or potatoes n tuna dish.. I even serve 10x green pepper n later dish was quiche refresh came back later 10x green pepper.. Imagine that when I have flour, sugar beef stock up ...

Not gonna lied the last 2 days if I do not bother to log in every hour I would not have gotten the stove

Thank you for your response. I've played and finished several cruises using both styles, stacking and not stacking. The not stacking due to the glitch that put 1/2 of us at the disadvantage by taking away our ability to stack. I did finish but barely. But the last two cruise events, for whatever reason, have gotten much harder. I finished the first 8 days in the first few hours but on day 9, 90% of my orders required lobster or were 6 hours on a stove I only have one of. Spent most of yesterday refreshing to absolutely no advantage and had to use a chunk of gems to finish the day after my last day had already started. Then the same thing today. Just like the last cruise, I'm literally only 2 or 3 4 coin dishes away from finishing.

Last cruise event I used up 80 fast serves and am down to 9 and have been unable to get any more so I was forced to wait out every order to the final second. Without the quick serves I find it nearly impossible to finish a cruise. But add on continuous orders for things I can't make like onion rings (don't have the new oven/fryer), or long cook time orders and I keep falling short.

The coin amounts must be different due to my lower level. Today they were 7, 19, 44, and 75 respectively. Though I only got one 4 coin dish I could actually prepare. That's why it took so long...all those 2 and 3 coin dishes. And they all required broccoli...I hate broccoli! :p

You are SO RIGHT, when I played my first cruise lvl 10+ it is so easy I did not even use diamonds or quick serve mind you.. Because as mention every steak dish is 4star lol... N the diamonds factor is more maybe 100 per 4 star dish I never even bother to refresh ...

I ended today at my second cruise lvl33... 70+ max stock inventory n +4 restock I am already feeling crazy at the last 2 days I use all 40 quick serve I have been saving from 24hr events..

I cannot even imagine if I got to higher lvl like u when MUCH MORE dishes unlock n stock like lobster... The higher lvl we got up is more crazy for cruise events

I would really suggest for high lvl like yrself.. Maybe storm8 should class or let us select the 4 star dish or stock... 1star to 4 star let us pick a random stock/dish for us before we start cruise... Seriously I might even think this is my last cruise event as Long as I am level up with more dishes unlock

Btw I really respect u guys who are high level completing cruise events, good job n happy Halloween

Hi fellow caterers ,I am lv 47 and this was my first cruise Ship. I managed very well without a catering helper or buying gems but the last two days was impossible and after 8 days of dedication I did nt manage to get the stove and absolutely refuse to pay the astronomical fee of ?39.99 to buy the required number of gems to purchase it. Why is the price so high?
Thanks for the info you all post, as I will be more prepared for the next cruise.

Just wanted to pop in and say ty ty for the advice. I finally finished my first cruise. :) I took out all but one chair and kept counters stocked. Did great the first 3/4 days but the last several got very difficult to complete. I still feel like there are bugs to be worked out. I had a couple times where it would ask me to collect for example salmon and the other two slots were both recipes that required salmon. I did a lot of refreshing(refresh times need lowered too) and got mostly one and two coin items. I also feel like it shouldn't give u things u haven't learned yet. I leveled up 4 days into the cruise so I continually got lobster sandwich popping up. I had to refresh it because I don't have 100,000 coins to unlock the ingredients needed and then learn it. I also had beef stew pop up for 4 coins and got kicked out as I was collecting a needed ingredient. I came right back and my beef stew was gone and quiche for 2 coins was where the stew had been. I have a feeling these are gonna get harder for me as I am entering the higher levels and now have the lobster recipes available. Guess we shall see with the next one lol.

So, it's my last day of the cruise (on level 40 account), woke up an hour ago, checked my game, all is in order, exited and force-close, came back and ALL MY FOOD is GONE. Disappeared in two minutes, gave me no coins, all my counters, which granted only had enough items for the cruise, a few thousand french dip, antipasto platter, and various others, but UGH!

No my door wasn't blocked, I had always had at least one chair in place... had actually just put out a few more chairs as all my counters were full. Hope I can still finish. Game just asked for prime rib, which was also on my counters. Hope nobody else gets this during the cruis, especially not on their last day. :-/

I've just successfully finished my first cruise event! I was feeling pretty pleased with myself for planning it out so the last two days fell on a quiet weekend, and for taking advice I'd read about previous events to make sure I had maximum food and ingredients to fill the orders.

BUT ...

I play on an Android device, and had no idea that my prize for all that planning would be a green stove ... with no recipes to cook on it.

There was really no point in me doing the event. I could have put all the income I've lost to the event towards expansions, pantry upgrades etc instead of sending it to the cruise ship and losing it.

So instead of being happy at completing the event, I am beyond disappointed.

Course, I come over to the forum to check the thread for the event, see if any others are having this problem, thinking it's a glitch, and on the first page of this thread it does say that the prize for Android users is the stove only. Which is fine for folk that regularly check the forum but I'm sure that there was no mention in the game itself that for Android users, the stove would come without recipes (which is a pretty pointless prize). If there had been, I wouldn't have bothered doing the event.

I'd rather have been told that there was an event, but it wasn't for Android users rather than go all the way through just to be so disappointed at the end.

Lesson well and truly learned. Always read the fine print!!

I've just successfully finished my first cruise event! I was feeling pretty pleased with myself for planning it out so the last two days fell on a quiet weekend, and for taking advice I'd read about previous events to make sure I had maximum food and ingredients to fill the orders.

BUT ...

I play on an Android device, and had no idea that my prize for all that planning would be a green stove ... with no recipes to cook on it.

There was really no point in me doing the event. I could have put all the income I've lost to the event towards expansions, pantry upgrades etc instead of sending it to the cruise ship and losing it.

So instead of being happy at completing the event, I am beyond disappointed.

Course, I come over to the forum to check the thread for the event, see if any others are having this problem, thinking it's a glitch, and on the first page of this thread it does say that the prize for Android users is the stove only. Which is fine for folk that regularly check the forum but I'm sure that there was no mention in the game itself that for Android users, the stove would come without recipes (which is a pretty pointless prize).

The stove does come with recipes. For android the stove comes without the ghostly chef who just looks like he is cooking the recipes but is just cosmetic as it makes no difference with or without him.

I have a question if I have added stuff to ships order but haven't pressed delivered will those items be lost and gone forever?

So, it's my last day of the cruise (on level 40 account), woke up an hour ago, checked my game, all is in order, exited and force-close, came back and ALL MY FOOD is GONE. Disappeared in two minutes, gave me no coins, all my counters, which granted only had enough items for the cruise, a few thousand french dip, antipasto platter, and various others, but UGH!

No my door wasn't blocked, I had always had at least one chair in place... had actually just put out a few more chairs as all my counters were full. Hope I can still finish. Game just asked for prime rib, which was also on my counters. Hope nobody else gets this during the cruis, especially not on their last day. :-/

I've always found that "your door was blocked" nonsense to be S8 trying to blame us for their glitchy coding. The food disappearing bug, as far as I know, is unrelated to the door being blocked or not, but they don't want to fix the code so it's just the excuse they use. There's always something the user is doing that they can use to deflect responsibility for what happened and continue on w/o doing the work to make the game function properly

Not sure why I'm so bitter about all this today, but I'm sorry to hear they got you, infinite...

I found from bakery story to never block the door in these games.

Just leave one chair out and make the customers walk far to get to it. This means the food will sell really slow. Even put the greeter really far from the door and then the table near the door so they have to do plenty walking before they can eat.

500 gems left and only 7 hours...
I'm not sure I'm too bothered, the recipes don't look *that* great.

Well, up to you what you decide, but always cheaper to make the decision *before* the timer expires. Afterwards,e they charge you that outrageous 1300 gems or w/e.

And you can still make it. Good luck!

Are there any extra prizes for getting 3 star mastery on Ghost Cupcakes or Candy Corn Cheesecake like there were in the recent Halloween series of goals? I just finished 1 star mastery on both and was curious if anyone else is bothering with mastery on them. If so, does anyone know how many of each is required for 3 star mastery?

I wanted to say 'thank you!' to everyone who posted tips for the cruise events. This was the first cruise I was able to complete, and I did it by following all the good advice in these threads.

Also, I've really loved the Halloween theme. 😀

I finished the cruise both for my own level 55 character and my friend's level 25 (level 29 by the end of the cruise) character. For her character I even managed to open store, upgrade stores and pantry etc during the cruise. It's really not impossible!

I've loved the Halloween theme too, and I agree that as you level up cruises get even harder! Although I have a larger pantry, I also have many more ingredients to stock, as well as recipes that call for ginger and vanilla, so I have to keep those on hand too. Ultimately, with 6 minutes left on the clock I used 90 gems to finish the cruise so I could get the Ghostly Stove.

For the curious, here are the details on the recipes I've unlocked:

Salmagundi: Yields 2,500 coins and 500 servings, cook time of 3 hours. Ingredients are 2 egg, 4 beef, 4 tomato, 2 salmon.
Spooky Candy Apples: Yields 2,400 coins and 1,200 servings, cooks for 1.5 hours. Ingredients are 3 apple, 5 sugar.
Spider Bread Bowl: Yields 400 coins and 200 servings, cooks for 1 hour. Ingredients are 2 tomato, 2 bread, 3 potato.
Cheese Pumpkins: Yields 350 coins and 50 servings, cooks for 1 hour. Ingredients are 2 cheese, 2 bread, 4 cream.

I don't think you get any prizes for mastering those recipes. People master them to get more mastery starts and the poster:>
I try to master seasonal recipes because I like having extra mastery starts and also the posters (I put them on the walls sometimes). But if you don't really care about it, you really don't have to get out of your way to master them!

Well I managed to finish with time to spare. Lots of two-coin dishes and ingredients. Still totally unacceptable to lose everything, but I guess this is to be expected...?

I've never finished a cruise yet. This was the closest I got. I work, and just couldn't make it happen.

I'm going to delete the app and use the memory space for something else. Not out of anger, but logic.

Why keep a game with impossible goals for people who can't log in during work hours?

I do still love castle story, at least.

Do we know if the new stove is permanent or temporary?

Although I think the recipes are cute, Halloween is over.
And they can be used next year to fill counters.

it is impossible to finish these quests unless you pay attention to the game all day or use and purchase a lot of gems that are never discounted anyway. Please think about shortening the next one so those of us who work have a better chance of completing them. Thanks for your consideration.

I've been refreshing dishes for 3 days now and haven't gotten one that is loaded on my counter. Chalk me up as someone who is giving up too

New stove and recipes on it are permanent.
