Wayne and I have no fear to get right back on and sail again. Today we started searching to possibly go on another cruise this fall! Anything can happen anywhere so this mishap won't stop us from going again!
Nobody can stop me from cruising! I am a travel agent and I know those sorts of mishaps are rare as can be. No one ever hears about all of the successful cruises - only ones with problems. It's like my professor always says, "When a customer has a good experience, they tell 3 people. When they have a bad experience, they tell 7-10." That's usually how it works with these kinds of things!

Fasnacht is the English name for a fried doughnut served traditionally in the days of Carnival / Fastnacht or on (Shrove Tuesday), the day before Lent starts. Fasnachts were made as a way to empty the pantry of lard, sugar, fat, and butter, which were traditionally fasted from during Lent.

The Pennsylvania Dutch celebrate Fastnacht as well. Most chain supermarkets in eastern Pennsylvania offer fasnachts. In parts of Maryland, the treats are called Kinklings, and are only sold in bakeries on Shrove Tuesday. The German version is made from a yeast dough, deep fried, and coated or dusted in sugar or cinnamon sugar; they may be plain or filled with fruit jam. Pennsylvania Dutch fasnachts can often be potato doughnuts, and may be uncoated, powdered with table sugar, or dusted with confectioner sugar.

The term is synonymous with the Carnival season which is called Fasnacht in southern Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Although usually written "Fastnacht." The word Fastnacht originates from the German words Fast (verb: to fast), and Nacht, meaning night, eve, indicating the eve of the traditional Lenten fasting period. It is the equivalent celebration to Mardi Gras or Carnevale.
No, never heard of Krumpe's---I almost never got that far west.

Kinklings are definitely in the German tradition. Frederick County had a lot of German settlers in the 1700s, including some of my ancestors. I've never seen kinklings with filling or cinnamon sugar, though. Coated with powdered sugar---yes!
