I saw it too. Probably will come within the hour. I can't wait to find out what the recipe will be! Would be lovely if it didn't require the same sugar, flour and cream. I know they need basic ingredients that folks of all levels have or can unlock easily, but maybe a pasta dish? Or something with chicken and tomatoes.

I'm stretched thin people! And can't upgrade buildings with those things anymore.

I have 6 million saved so don't need the coins but I'm cringing at what I'll need to get rid of. Because I've been making stuff with high XP and hard to come by ingredients to reach level 60, getting those last two recipes. Already got my prime rib cooking and have been making tuna casserole again since yesterday. Just put some ginger tea on and racking my brain to recall everything they usually ask for.

I'm about to have some angry customers too. Because chairs are about to be turned around!

Thank you. But I don't hash trouble with the cruises. I always finish early, never use gems to skip or complete a day and have completed them all except the Alaskan one.

But ask and one shall receive! So happy, a new recipe that does NOT require our precious sugar, cream or flour stock. Looks yummy, can't wait to cook it.

Good luck, everyone! And don't hestitate to remove some chairs, to help your food sell slower. If you know which dishes pop up more.

I've already gotten annoyed, because the winter crumble popped up and I've never had a recipe from an event come up for a cruise. Ever! And it just had to be the only one I didn't learn. That sucks!

Yes.

So would it be better to start after that time to get the most time for the first day? Last cruise I started right away, but was unaware that the day ended at 12 am pacific time, and I barely finished for the first day. I thought if you weren't done with all of your stuff by the end of the day you were screwed. How do you make up days and still complete it.

Yes it's best to start after midnight. If you don't finish your day 1 within 24 hours, you can carry over to day 2 or 3, but it eats into the time you have for day 2 and after. Remember you have 10 days from start to end. I plan my last day to fall on the day when i have more time to play. Good luck with your cruise. :)

Yep, rynetory2 is right. I only started tonight because I wanted everyone on the forums to know what the prize is. Plus I'll be honest I always start on the first day because I like to be one of the first people to get the final prize :D

Just my opinion, which I'm sure no one else will agree with, but here it goes. I prefer to start my cruise right away because the first day is always the easiest and I usually get it done within an hour or two then I can jump right into day two immediately instead having to wait a full day for day two to start. I'm not a patient person :-)

The first day is only 75 gems. That's only a few dishes. If you already had some stacked on your counter, your first day could be finished in mere minutes. If you get harder recipes you can always refresh and get new one in 30 minutes. Even if you did this a couple of times you could still finish the first day in a few hours. As the cruise progresses, especially from day eight one, that no longer is possible.

I did this the last cruise cause it was my first one and I couldn't wait to start. I'm actually itching to start now lol, but I want to try it this way for this one and see if I like putting off the start.

I feel like I just finished a cruise! That marshmallow event kept me on non-stop every 2 hrs and even interrupted my sleep so I could get enough marshmallows from my yeti! But this cruise decor is soooo cute!!! I think I will be using a lot of my gems that I've saved up on them! Hope I have enough��
Thank you AlexKippy for posting what the prizes will be each day! I won't start my cruise for a couple days until I've cleared what is on my counters and fully stocked up for the cruise but I love to know what the rewards are!

No. You have 10 days to complete it, whether you only do 1 day or all 10 days, you have the entire 10 days once you start. However, at midnight CA time a new day opens. So say you start the cruise at 11:30 pm (CA time) you will have 10 days to complete that day, but 30 minutes later at midnight your second day will open and be available to you. Then when you finish your first day you won't be locked out for any of the new days deliveries because it will already be opened. Another example: say you start your first day at midnight, then finish 4 hours later, the event locks and you will have to wait another 20 hours, midnight the next day to unlock day 2.

ETA A: I would suggest not falling behind or taking more than one day to finish that day's requirements. Each day progressively gets harder and longer and if you already fall behind it will become more difficult even impossible to finish without a ton of quick services and/or gems. So try to finish each day on the day it opens

ghjvcucjb
01-14-16, 08:58 PM
Just a reminder for those who are new to the cruises. If you use gems to open your next day early, once you finish that extra day you will be locked out the entire time until your event catches up to your original days. Unless you use more and more gems to keep opening up days early. Be careful of doing this.

I think it depends on how much you have progressed in the game and what your future schedule looks like. I know I stressed over the last cruise because I started right away and had family coming to visit over the holidays. I still finished, but I wished I had waited to start. I literally was taking my ipad into the bathroom with me so I could check my dishes. So wrong! Please tell me I am not the only one sneaking some game time!

No, you have a long as it takes. The next day won't unlock until you complete the day. The end of the event won't change. The only day you really have to complete before the start of the next day is the last day.

You'll be ok! I just finished my first day 10:25 Hawaiian time and it immediately opened up my second day. It's only the the second day and I already forgot what time the new day resets! Lol. That doesn't bode well for me for the rest of the event. I was hoping for a couple of hours break. Now I'm waiting for lobster salad and some fish dish on the grill and a refresh so I can go to bed.

The game play is different for low level vs high level. The cruise does get easier as you progress further with the game and collect more upgrade tools. At higher level and/or more upgrade tools you can:

1. expand pantry - you can store more items ahead of cruise without having to think twice or thrice what to throw out. You can even store 10 of each long hours items or even extra items like spices and herbs.

2. upgrade shops - you can easily collect more ingredients within the same amount of time needed. (e.g. collect 2 onions vs 5 onions every 7 or 8 hours)

3. more variety of dishes - you will get more recipes available as you level up, so you will not be constrained by those few 1 or 2 coins dishes at lower level. The cruise frequently asks for 10 onions or peppers cos there arent many 4 coins dishes available at lower level. Even if you sent them, you may find the new request immediately asking for another 10! You will find that you can finish your day of 75 gems faster at higher level whereas at lower level you tend to get more 1 or 2 coins dishes or those impossible 4 coins asking for 10 onions which slows your progress or you keep refreshing.

4. open street market slots - you can open more slots to get a higher chance of buying the items you need for your cruise.

So dont give up. Try to collect more upgrade tools to expand your pantry and shops. Good luck with your cruise. :)

If your cruise asks for say 10 onions and you have 5 in your pantry, they will be gone from your pantry once you click deliver. If your veg shop has more available for buying, you can buy and deliver again. This way you can free your pantry. Before you deliver, it's best that you decide if you want to refresh this order due to the restocking time. Sometimes it's faster to refresh instead of waiting for the restocking especially if your shop isnt upgraded much. Hope this helps.

I just realized why we got the campfire stove. The game has asked mostly for dishes made in the campfire stove making the catering event more difficult. In the past, I had it easier because I have 2 of everything else to cook. Just now 2 of the three items on the board to cook requires cooking in the campfire stove. Very disappointed.

I usually get through cruises well as well. I won't start it just yet just taking a few days to cook & stock up first.

That's definitely a first for me as well that a cruise asks for event items so that will be interesting for sure. Luckily I do have all those dishes unlocked from the campfire stove. I used quite a bit of gems buying the needed marshmallows because I couldn't get enough from the drops. Luckily I have a few gem recipes unlocked so used those gems I slowly saved up for such emergencies. A tad disappointing it's asking for those dishes from such a difficult event though.

Yes I'm thrilled the new recipe from this cruise finally doesn't need sugar or cream!! I tend to fall way behind on churning out the gem recipes when other events are on that have very high sugar demands.


Oh no......more 3 coins dishes choice, more difficult to decide which pre-cook. Wish I have more counters....ummm :-(
Yikes! Yes decisions decisions..
I think I will prioritize pre cooking the one I only have 1 appliance of and the items that have long restocking times. That saves the most time.

They are gone forever if you click them to deliver. If you change your mind to refresh the item, in the past for me they were gone the game did not restock the pantry.

Refreshed the second dish requiring the campfire stove, waited 30 minutes and the new item requires the campfire stove. Looks like I will be doing a lot of refreshing this time around....

I have a question about the cruise. Could I "give" 9 onions but then not finish the delivery today? Then I could free up pantry space and finish the first day using my other two slots. Tomorrow I would only have to give one more onion and I would have a 4-star delivery immediately. Will this work? I surely don't want to lose my 9 onions haha.

Yes you certainly can. In fact I do this to free my pantry. :) As long as you dont submit your last dish for the day, you can keep adding items. ;-)


If your cruise asks for say 10 onions and you have 5 in your pantry, they will be gone from your pantry once you click deliver. If your veg shop has more available for buying, you can buy and deliver again. This way you can free your pantry. Before you deliver, it's best that you decide if you want to refresh this order due to the restocking time. Sometimes it's faster to refresh instead of waiting for the restocking especially if your shop isnt upgraded much. Hope this helps.

You actually can GIVE the entire 10 of the item. Until you hit DELIVER they're not in your pantry, but have not been sent to the cruise ship. I do this all the time to get a head start on the next day.

Ummm that was what I said and meant. We can continue buying and giving as long as we don't deliver the last order and close the day out. Once we gave 10, then submit the last order to close the day. Sorry I don't get you. :confused:

I usually stack food that have the longest prep time. I'm not sure which recipes are unlocked at your level, but go for those that have 3 hours or more!

Once you have successfully completed the entire event, the character will show up in your restaurant. You will have a limited time, usually 12 days or something like that, to tap on her and get your first special ingredient to make the gem recipe. The recipe will be opened to you when you successfully complete the entire cruise. Once you tap on the character and make the recipe for the first time, they both become a permanent part of your restaurant

I pre stack most of the long cook or long ingredient wait time. However this is the first event that, for me, has been mostly requesting items from the new special event recipes, which I dint pre-make a now it's very slow going for me. Once my day is finished and locked, I plan on stacking those recipes.

Just a suggestion. If you do stack, I would recommend putting away 1 or 2 counters for insurance sake. Sometimes you end up with too much food and full counters and can not clear your appliances to cook for the cruise and will have to discard your food. Having a couple of counters in storage has saved me in the past.

Well, I no longer have a problem with not having enough counter space. A few hours after my own character started the cruise, the system decides to help me out by emptying all my counters - I don't think I even got the money for the servings :mad: and no, my chairs were all out as normal.
This will be the first cruise EVER that I'll need to remove chairs!

Hey :) I'm level 44.

I stack: Tuna casserole, lobster thermidor, baked potato, fajitas, lobster bisque., ginger tea (unlocks at your level). (There's more, can't think right now. I'll edit with more later.)

I also try to stock up on these ingredients: green peppers, onions, peas, broccoli, rice, mayo, lobster, salmon.

So glad to have another chance at a cruise event, especially with my knowledge now. Sadly bad timing as I'm quite sick, but I'll give it a fighting chance!

One darn marshmellow from learning second to last recipe last event. Maybe it was meant to be not to waste gems on the others as I had them and was ready so more gems in my pocket for something better! :)

I really hope this event goes smoother for me. I play these games to take a break from being sick and I hope to get that break and some enjoyment this week :)

Curious, which dishes are you stacking on your counters? I am at Level 42. I just found this thread and I've learned many useful tools that will help to succeed in cruises. Thank you guys for sharing!

I'm level 55 and I'm stocking this cruise with:
All dishes from fryer (6), lobster Thermidor, lobster bisque, lobster sandwich, salmon sushi, mandarin salad, ginger tea, strawberry smoothie, tuna casserole, French dip, stew, prime rib, winter crumble, campfire fish & campfire chicken. So, I go with meals that I have 1 appliance for, take a long time to cook, have ingredients in them that take a long time to restock, and ones they have asked for a lot in the past.

My pantry is at 120 and all my markets are at a 5 refresh, so I try to keep at least 10 items ready for almost all items. I try to keep more of onions, potatoes, peppers, mayo and salmon because as soon as you get a request for lets say baked salmon, sure enough right afterwards you will get a request for 10 salmon and probably lox bagel too. At least that seems to be how my cruises go.

ellyse99
01-16-16, 12:15 AM
I've chosen to stock salmon rather than stack salmon dishes. 10 salmon is worth 4 coins. Salmon Sushi, Baked Salmon and California Roll are only 3 coins each, and they don't take that long to make.
For beef, I'd rather stack its dishes as French Dip, Stew and Prime Rib are worth 4 coins each, but 10 beef is only worth 3 coins.
So...stack dishes that take a long time to cook, but stack ingredients that take long to stock but don't necessarily take a long time to cook. Am I making sense?
I'm level 59, pantry is at 200, and all stores are at 6.

I have a question regarding counter food and I'm not sure if it has been answered before...

Let's say I wanted to keep certain food "behind the counter" and not sell them because they are harder / takes longer to cook, and I want to keep them "hidden" for the cruise only. Is there a way to do it? I tried putting dividers to separate those counters from the rest of the restaurant area but that doesn't seem to be working...

I can't just turn the chairs around because I ran out of counter space so I want to sell of the easy-to-cook food for more space. Also, since I'm a low level player I don't have enough money reserve to just keep buying ingredients so I need to sell some at the same time...

No, There is no way to do this. The only way is turn chairs around so food being sold really slow. Even if you put counter far away so waiter can't access it, the food will still be selling :<

I don't have a ton of pantry space so that's why I at least make salmon sushi. It's one less salmon meal and it uses ginger and the rice. The only other time I've needed rice is for veggie sushi and when they ask for 10 rice and I don't get asked for the rice very often. So I just don't stock as much of it.

This kind of stuff has happened to me too. I would just get rid of the beef since you can restock it pretty fast. Unless you really need the money. I've got a ton of cash, so making money or losing money doesn't matter anymore. I just play the cruise to get new appliances, decorations or new recipes. I hoard my gems and refuse to use then for anything but buying construction parts to upgrade my markets and pantry. But everyone plays the game different.

Keep them when ready on the appliance, don't serve it to the counters, and then they won't get sold.
Make stuff to sell on the diner stoves. The only things that the cruise asks for which are cooked on the diner stove are only a max of 30 mins and aren't worth very much in terms of cruise coins, so you can keep cooking as usual on it.

I've got a ton of cash, so making money or losing money doesn't matter anymore. I just play the cruise to get new appliances, decorations or new recipes. I hoard my gems and refuse to use then for anything but buying construction parts to upgrade my markets and pantry. But everyone plays the game different.

I thought about refreshing the beef but then thought what if I got another 3 or 4 coin order? I don't know if I want to keep hitting refresh until I get a one coin dish, doing it and then end with a one or two coin dish for tomorrow. If I didn't buy everything that is required in the other goals I probably would have money lol. I need to stop spending it lol.If I spend the 5 gems, I will finish the day with 2 4 coin orders and a 3 coin order for tomorrow.

You don't get asked for tuna roll or mushroom risotto? Or do you just refresh those?

I've only ever had mushroom risotto once (I remember because the next cruise I stacked that dish and was never asked for it that cruise and now have never been asked for it since again.). I can't remember getting asked for tuna roll. I guess for all my cruises it seems to be mainly the same stuff over and over again. I get tons of fryer recipes - I get asked for at least one of those recipes every day, most times two times a day or more. I've gotten an onion ring request twice in one day multiple times. So I've learned to stock up on tons of fryer recipes. I am assuming since they are using the campfire stove recipes this cruise that I will have lots of requests for those too. There are always exceptions once in a while, but I've gotten used to seeing the same ones over and over again.

I love these time limit recipes this time!
- Safari Salad in the Salad Bar
- Piri Piri Chicken on Commercial Range
- Fladbread with Chutney on Diner Oven
- Coconut Fish Curry

I've lived in East Africa for several years and have eaten all these things! My absolute favorite is the 'safari salad' -as called here, we just called it salad. I wish the image of it looked like the real thing, the recipe is slightly different IRL, usually tomato, onion, and cucumber thinly sliced!

And the coconut fish curry is soooo good.

I also love all the rewards for the cruise and other deco. Afraid i'm going to be spending a lot of gems!! I want all the new things.

Little random here but I was going through my neighbors and trying to see who was active and when I go to their restaurants I can see all the past cruises! I've seen British, Rockstar, Hawaiian, Winter, Wedding, Thanksgiving, Park Ranger, & the latest one. It really makes me wish I could've completed my first cruises! What does the rockstar and Hawaiian girl drop? Wish they would bring these little guys back for an option to buy.

I don't think the rock cruise gave us a new character, only decor. Luana drops gems, quick serves and coins.

This is the way I determine which neighbours are still active. I find it really handy.

I have participated in all cruises, but only completed the British, the Egyptian and the Alaskan one. I'm hoping this can be my forth.

Does anyone know if we'll get a new cook for completing this cruise? I see many of my neighbours with the pirate guy cooking away and I want one! :( I'm guessing we only get a new cook when the grand prize is a stove. Correct?

Thanks so much ellyse99 and lorettasapron! that also explains why I didn't see a little rocker on stage but the tv! I saw all the past cruises except the Egyptian one! LonePudding I wasn't able to complete the first three cruises from the list here but was able to complete the next one (The wedding one) Thankfully this forum and all the wonderful advice provided helped me start completing them. The list provided by fatbear that has the dishes listed and what they are worth is excellent and a must read!
I'm kind of addicted to this game! With all its cuteness although sometimes I stress a little bit! Lol. Best of luck to everyone doing the cruise!! []

As patayita mentioned, you get a new chef if the grand prize is a stove. The previous cruise gave a new chef and this cruise a gem recipe. Maybe the next cruise gives a new chef if they alternate. Good luck with your cruise. :)

This will be the first event that I will not do...the last few events I was unable to complete and its taking a toll on real life. They make it so hard so you have to dedicate your life to this game. I play other games and this is the only one where they make it super hard....the last cruise event i spent over 300 gems and still didnt complete it. And the campfire event I also spent gems and couldnt unlock the the final prize and the last 2 recipes. So over this game. It's no longer fun.

i think it because you spent your time playing too many game, i only have this game on my phone and i dont have to waste my life playing it, but i can complete the event eventually. the campfire event, i only spent 10 gems to skip the winter cereal ( cause i was lv 41 and it require lv 47 to unlock). and i still have my yeti freaking spaghetii now
Ps: i logged in every 2 hours and play for 10 minutes. so that is not too much

I really hate these new changes, it's like they purposely try to push us to a corner till we have No choice but to pay for gems, cruise event didn't used to be that hard, it used to be just finishing the cruse in 10 days, now there introducing dishes to master during the event? It used to be 1 or 2 dishes but this time is 3? And they all require you to cook them 60 times each to master all 3? And it doesn't help that we no longer get mastery spice from mastering the dishes, and they even lowered the time when it used to be where people didn't have to worry about these dishes after the cruise is over we still had a good 7 days to finish mastering them.
Look I like this game, I really do, but if this continues its like the game is telling me to go look for another game if I can't handle the pressure, and I don't like to be glued to my phone 24/7 just to finish these back to back events, I know that they need to make money but isn't there a better way? 🙁

I just wanted to throw a big thank you to the forum! This is the first safari I will probably complete. I managed to actually complete the day with get this....a whomping 9 minutes until my next day starts! I know it's not much but it means I'm on track. Having the time right now is helping too, but I have been using the tips like stocking and turning the chairs and it has changed the game a lot! Being a lower level player might be helping me too as I don't have as many crazy things unlocked yet.

Best of luck to everyone else, I know it's been mixed opinions, but I'll be happy if I can finish. Just need my health to cooperate this week lol

Well tbh mastering dishes is not affecting cruise in any way. If you don't master them you still can win the main prize! I agree that cooking them 60 times seems a little too much, but since it doesn't influence anything I guess it's not that bad. And we still get mastery spice when we master dish to level 1 I think. I agree that it would be better to get the them for each level like before, but it's not like you can't get them any other way. I managed to make 20 mastery spices during couple of weeks and I didn't use any coz events didn't really require to imo. And I still have 10+ vanilla laying around...
Oh level 57 I usually can finish first few days with just a few hours, later days require more time but I still don't think I'm glued to my phone and still have real life lol. I would prefer having events back to back because otherwise for me it would be boring, cooking dishes just to level up doesn't seem entertaining:<

You can't get them now unless you buy them with gems. You were able to get them during the event that ended few days ago.

I do not have marshmallows, either, and if I had them, I could have already used them up all. It is ridiculous that the game asked for an ingredient that no one can re-produce, unless buying it with gems. It costs 12 gems per marshmallow; it is very expensive. Team Lava, please do not ask for dishes from the camp fire. I do not have the ingredient, I cannot reproduce it, and I will not buy it with gems. To me, it is RIDICULOUS to ask for a dish that can only be made by buying an ingredient with a gem. Way too ridiculous! I am wondering who in Team Lava decide to include the camp fire dishes to the cruise orders? It is very unwise and your players are very disappointed!

As I said in my previous post you don't need to master recipes at any level! I choose to master them because I like having plaques and extra master stars, but that's just me. I think they just appear as a bonus to cruise events, and people might choose to cook them or ignore them :>

I was actually suprised to see recipes from campfire stove being asked in this cruise event. I agree, it's weird that people who didn't unlock recipes still being asked to cook them although there is no way to get marshmallows unless you pay gems. Just seems pretty unfair. Events should always be optional and if you don't want to/can't complete some it shouldn't affect your game, especially jeopardize your chances in other events. It would be fair to ask for recipes that person unlocked, and ignore other recipes imo :/

01-19-16, 04:54 PM
I have a question... I waited until the game automatically started my cruise. I was trying to make as many dishes as possible and figured I would just let it start on its own. The cruise opened automatically for me at 6:00 in the evening. It only gave me until 3am (9hrs) total to compete the first day. Why does it give you such a short time if you let it start on its own? I know the times are right because I was playing the game all day and then got back on at 6:00 and the cruise window popped up and started, before it was not started. And here, 3am is always the start of my new day. Just confused as to why it didn't automatically start at 3am that morning instead to give me the full 24hrs? Guess I'll need to remember that for the future!

I got one request for a dish using the campfire stove about maybe 3 times and I am about to finish day 6. I have refreshed each time and managed to easily get dishes that I can cook. Try to stay positive. I agree these campfire recipes shouldn't be coming up but they haven't been a major obstacle for me since refreshing gives me something worth 3 or 4 coins.

Hope things change around for the better for you.

Good luck!

I have an offer to buy a second Celebration Stove for 125 gems (I think it said that's 50% off). I'm currently at level 47 and do not use the one I have all the time. The only recipes I have available so far are Celebration Cupcakes, Mini Pumpkin Pies, Raisin Bread, and Mina's Cupcakes. I'm trying to finish the current cruise for Coconut Fish Curry. I'm wondering if there's some reason in the future I'll wish I had 2 Celebration Stove? Thanks!

IMO you should grab the opportunity as this comes rarely (in the sense that it takes months to have such sales and to avoid loss on the accidental purchases with gems). You may not be able to utilize it superbly until higher levels. Most of the gem recipes takes time to cook 5-6hours. I do cook gems even though I have already mastered it.

good luck on your decision =)

I don't have the marshmallows too!!! :mad::mad::mad: someone fix that please

I haven't gotten there yet, but is it possible to rotate the elephant to see the animation? Some of my animated things only show the animation in certain directions. For instance the holiday table with the candle flame--my candle is only lit in one direction!

Well I won't finish...about 26 hrs left now and I'm still working on day 8. Got too many orders for recipes I haven't learned and everything else required too many potatoes or was only worth 1-2 coins. Oh well! I have the baby elephant and will get the gazelle so I'm happy.

Good luck to everyone and congrats to those who finished. :)

Dont give up sweetie cos you never know when you hit a series of orders which you can do. I was stuck for over 6 hours with 1 coins and 2 coins dishes which I did but it was extremely frustrating seeing my progress bar only at one quarter. After that dry spell, I finallly managed to get a few 4 and 3 coins which really helped and I am almost done. Keep going as far as you can. Good luck.

Unfortunately, I'm one of those weird people who doesn't care much about the decorations. I kind of like decorating the walls with different wallpaper and changing tables and chairs and counters, but that's about it. I've never been a fan of the animals or flowers or whatever. Before starting the cruise, I saw the counter style showing with the cook and servers so I thought maybe we were going to get that style unlocked as a prize. But, darn it that isn't offered and I'm not paying for it with gems. The counter style was the only thing I saw that excited me. The rest is just boring to me. So, I just do the cruise to get the recipes. Wish I liked the decorations more but I just don't.

01-23-16, 08:51 AM
I'm so lucky, i have 10 potatoes and 10 peas in my pantry and the cruise requests them, 8 coins so easy :)
and then i get French Dip Sandwich, just cock it, sleep and get 4 coins on tomorrow, i really love this recipe :cool:
I have 16 hours to complete cruise (150gem mores), I can do it :)
Good luck to everyone and congrats to those who finished.

Question for people who have completed this cruise (or previous cruises): does the icon with Erin the explorer count as a day for the cruise? I've got 12h left on my timer and am still working toward the step just before her icon (the one with the Safari buggy as the prize).

Also, did the cruise stop requesting Campfire Grill recipes? Haven't seen those for a while.

The icon with Erin is for a day. You have 12 hrs to complete the cruise day to get the buggy and the cruise day to get Erin and the recipe. I started a day late and have 36 hrs to get the buggy and Erin. I think the last day is 600 gems. So you have 12 hrs to complete the current day's gems plus the 600 for the last day. Good luck, it is challenging and you'll likely need to use quick serves and/or gems but it isn't impossible.

Yes, the icon with Erin is on day 10 and you need to complete that day as well in order to get the main prize (which is Erin and her recipe).
Regardless the campfire stove - I only had 1 recipe during the whole event while others had few in a day so I would say they are not gone, just didn't pop up yet.

That may mean it is not doable for me. I have closed off the restaurant and am stocking up on recipes. We shall have to see. I would really like to have a recipe that pays in Gems. Does anyone know if they ever repeat quests? I would like to be able to cook more than one thing on my grill for instance.

Thank you :) Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'll finish :( But this is the first time I've been so close to finishing, so I'm confident I'll be able to finish the next cruise and get my first gem-earning recipe! And hopefully, it will be Valentine's-themed :)

Now what am I going to do with all the safari-themed decor I accumulated? :confused: :p

29 hours 2 days left, do you guys think I have a shot? I was so excited for this one using the forum tips and started off well but got stuck on a day midway. This is the farthest I've gone so proud for that but would love the final prize. Thankfully I can play nonstop tomorrow basically so that should help. Sadly almost nothing I stocked up on has been asked for so did not do a good job picking

Finished! It was a nicely paced last day. Not as hard as some but definitely not easy by any means. Took a few gems but hoping to earn to those back as soon as I can make the recipe. Thank you S8 and the forum for this fun event and all the helpful discussion. Good luck to those who are still plugging on!

Hi jan, best of luck! I found that sometimes it's better to refresh until you get food that you have stocked or a four star dish unless it's a quick one. You can do it ! Cheers!

I am one coconut away from making. I will be so annoyed if it don't otherwise I wouldn't of bothered trying so hard to finish! All the ones that produce gems earn about 1,200, this one is only about 800 like the others that don't produce gems

It might be just a picture issue, I really don't think this recipes doesn't reward gems. I'm pretty sure it was mentioned either in the beginning of the cruise or in the notification that fish curry is a new recipe that rewards gems so I wouldn't worry at all!

Has S8 taken those dishes out? I'm out of counters and would like to know for sure so I can delete the campfire dishes and stack other dishes for the remaining days of the cruise

I dont think so, I think it could be due to the randomness. I had a long spell of those campfire orders then they gone and came back after a while.

Finished safari cruise. Erin seems to come every 4 to 4 1/2 hrs and drops 2 coconuts. Need five for the curry recipe. Cruise was challenging. I save gems and helping hands for the last two days. I don't stack my counters because i usually end up choosing the wrong dishes!! But I do try to stock my pantry with items that take long time to regenerate, like onions, lobster, salmon peas. I try not to stress out. If I get the prize, then great. Otherwise I just try to have fun. Good luck everyone

It varies, sometimes 1, sometimes 9 and all in between. 1 may not seem like much but if you cook it several times a day, you'll be rolling in gems within a month. Plus if you won any of the other gem recipes from prior cruises, you would be rolling in gems in no time. 1 gem recipe adds up.

I had lobster bisque, coq au vin, and lobster thermidor stacking continuously for the last 2 days and guess what? None needed for the cruise ship orders!

I'm not convinced about the 'randomness' of this game at all. For instance I get loads of vanilla every single day when a cruise is on but the minute we do a quest where you'd benefit from making mastery spice - can't grow vanilla for love or money.

Funny that, huh? :rolleyes:

On another note - anyone else noticed that the fish curry doesn't contain any fish? :D

I'm cutting it so close it's nerve wracking. 5 hours left 1/4 of day 10 left. Got 2 4 point dishes cooking as we speak. Using all my helping hands and some extra gems, figure I can make them back over time with the gem dishes and honestly I've never had anything to use them on up to this point and really want to finish my first cruise. Wish me luck! I hope to get some lucky dishes that I have stacked to help me along. Luckily I can sleep in tomorrow so will stay up until it's done and hope for the best. Have a little over 150 gems if I need. I get 4 a day from videos so worst case I know it's probably foolish to use them, maybe not. Not sure how long it will take go recuperate but hoping I don't nee to use them all. Will post my final results later!
