Stay tuned for more adventures as Inflatable of the Seas visits Cruise Critic's headquarters in New Jersey.

In the meantime, we want you to get involved in OASIS FEVER this week, too! Post your funny RCI/Oasis pics here. We might use your submission on our site -- if we do, you'll get a free T-shirt!

Good thing the cruise contract specifies that they do not guarantee that the ship is seaworthy!

OK, now THAT's fun stuff (how come we don't play with toys when *I'm* in the office, huh?).

I also know you guys have been VERY creative in the past (ahem) -- can you top Mel's Inflatable of the Seas photo???

Default Office fun!

Inflatable of the Seas doesn't float, but maybe it will fly? Cruise Critic staffer Matt (our search engine guru) gives it a head start:




Here, Inflatable of the Seas takes a quick dip in the freezer to see just what Oasis had to endure while being built in icy Finland!

Sounds like it's "Banana Daiquiri Day" at Cruise Critic!
The story behind "Banana Daiquiri Day":
One day our boss told us he was going to be out the next day.
We responded "When the cat's away, the mice will play!" and he told us that he'd used that expression once in front of a Chinese employee, who didn't know what it meant.
Once Drew explained it, the employee said, "Ah, I see! You mean, 'When the tiger is gone from the mountain, then the monkey is king!'"
So now we refer to the time when the boss is out of the office as "Banana Daiquiri Day" (because the monkeys are not only king, they're having one heck of a party!)
