Well January of this year seems to be getting off to a slow start. Many questions about cruises over the New Years holiday but virtually nobody is signing up.
Many of the inquirers are asking about the food (which is normal in this business), but oddly enough many are asking about the desserts on the menus. I have always said that the desserts are just great, but then I get followup inquiries about the specific items that are available. And after a few more go arounds about what exactly they are getting at, the topic of this damn Hershey Chocolate Syrup saga comes up. I don't know how to respond to such pettiness directly, nor knowledgeably. But I do know that it seems to be a show stopper.
Surely, no cruise worth it's salt would us lower quality ingredients in any item presented on the menu.
If I am wrong, then this is a tougher business than I thought.
>>Millenium Cruises - When Does the Revenue Get Booked?????<<
cougar, any time that a co. receives a deposit or anyother pymt. in advance of the good or service being provided, the co. has to account for the funds as deposits received or unearned revenue, both of which are shown as liabilities on the balance sheet.
Only upon delivery of the goods or services would the co. reclass the funds from the balance sheet to revenue on the income statement.
I should have realized that any attempt to stimulate intelligent discourse on this message board would be met with silly comments about Hershey's Syrup. Rather than address the obvious psychological problems and intellectual deficiencies of this sad character, I will offer a response to the following comment:
>>Surely, no cruise worth it's salt would us lower quality ingredients in any item presented on the menu.
This statement is akin to asking if Microsoft would deliver software with programming errors, or if Intel would ship a processor that can't divide properly. Would you then claim that these companies aren't worth their salt? You can't post an insane rant without several grammatical errors. Are you not worth your salt?
I don't know (or care) if Carnival serves Hershey's Syrup. It's irrelevant. I don't know if you are mentally unstable or some moron who's short 100 shares, and I don't care. You are irrelevant. Your obnoxious comments have no impact on the share price, they only serve to annoy the people on this board. And if that is your goal, you're a bigger idiot than I imagined.
It would be entirely fitting if it was made in part from seaweed. That would be very nautical.
And if the people are fooled into thinking it is something made of chocolate or fudge, then let them stay fooled.
Just grind that seaweed up real good and add a little food coloring and then present it like it was the best dam chocolate (or fudge) in the world, and those people at the tables would probably believe it.
Yea -- that's a real money maker.....don't use either of the expensive stuff; just scoop some "raw material" outa a kelp bed when nobody is looking and make the stuff right there on board.
Hope this clears up any possible confusion that may exist.
