Default Fun for the 18 - 21 Crowd?

Write-in question from Karen Heythaler of Center Line, MI:

"My husband and I are taking our 19-year-old granddaughter on the January 2, 2010 cruise. We are all excited. I know about the onboard activities for her (zip-line, FlowRider, etc.), but will there be any social groups organized for the 18- to 21-year-old crowd, so they can meet others? She was 13 on her last (and only) cruise and enjoyed the teen activities and meeting kids from across the country. Thank you.

Will there be a cigar lounge, aka "connosieur club" on the oasis?

I would love to see pictures of the cabins! In the casino we've heard there is a high-limit area and private lounge. Is that true?

Any chance that in the future Allure and Oasis may pass each other while at sea?

Since Central Park is open to the skies, what is Royals plan in case of bad weather?

What happens to the rain water on regular rainy days?

It is no different than other open deck areas. Rainwater falls and runs off through drainage openings. There are Awnings over most of the outdoor "al fresco" dining areas in the artists renderings. Same with the Boardwalk area.

Hi Dan,
Could you please find out how many people the Rising Tide Bar will hold at one time and can it be reserved for a group function? I've emailed RCCL, Crown & Anchor, and Mr. Fain's office, and no definitive word yet. I'd love it for our Cruise Critic group sailing on the Oasis 9-11-2010.

Thanks and have a great time on the Oasis

Default Ocean Views From Deck 6

I'm booked into an ocean view blacony cabin on deck 6 on the Oasis sailing on December 12th, 2009. I'm a little worried about the ocean view being obstructed by the lifeboats directly below deck 6. The new lifeboats are so much larger than the previous ones, and positioned much further over the side of the ship. Can you find out how they will effect the sitelines from the deck 6 balconies? Thanks.

Hi Oasis (or Lady "O" as some of our Facebook friends have been saying),

More than anything else, I'd love to see some live action video from the perspective of the zip-liner ... can you make that happen?

Default Do you plan on answering the questions?!?

I also would like to know about a Connoisseur Club. Will there be one? It isn't on the deck plans, though it's hard to believe it was on the Voyager Class and Freedom Class and then omitted on this much bigger ship.

How do you reserve the Chef's Table for 14? I've got 14 people who want to do this amazing dining experience.

Question for Oasis via Twitter from Alexis Carpenter:

When will we be able to view images of the staterooms aboard the Oasis at the RCI website? (I'm sure the Cruise Critic folks aboard will take photos aplenty, but I find this particular omission from the official website to be bizarre.)

Will there be sound proofing for the rooms located on the boardwalk deck (Deck 7)?
