Default Oasis Secrets...shhhhh

Ok.

Just got off the ship and felt compelled to write about this. LOL ..now I am stealing secrets...I didn't discover these but I thought I would put them all together....

Aft Deck 11 and 12....Go to the end of the hallway...either side...and you will get to the decks above the aqua class suites....AMAZING views and always EMPTY!!!!!

BOW Deck 14...Go LEFT young man...and then right when you hit the stateroom hallway....you will get to the front deck that spans the entire ship above both sides of the bridge. Amazing views and not crowded until Tuesday when the people in the solarium figure out how to get there. hehehehe GO GO GO.

Beef on Weck...Park Cafe...talked much here..but I have to add my OMG OMG OMG I ate at least a dozen over the week...OMG OMG...Heaven on a plate.

If you are an adult male...and self conscious...go at 5pm to the Carousel..No one is there and you can take a spin without anyone seeing you...trust me..secretly inside...you will be happy. Pick a nice horse and enjoy the ride.

Don't miss the pretzel dogs in the cafe by the flowriders....mushy inside ...pretzely outside and the dog is perfectly cooked.

Ask if REBECCA is in the ICE SHOW doing her Sand paintings. You will cry or at least be in total awe. I was close to her during the show and could see her hands....I did not believe my eyes....WOW WOW WOW

Art.....I got sucked into the moment. I can't believe I did...I bought a PETRI DISH...If you are not sure...wait during the week as for my cruise....there were plenty of Petri dishes....even though I was told they were lucky to get 10 a week...if that...and that they would sell out quickly....maybe that does happen...but not on my cruise....they were nice of course....If you want to know about the Petri Dishes...go into the PORT Hallway into the Casino. Amazing.... By the way..FIND SOME FRIENDS and buy more than one and get a BIG discount!!!! Then split them up and write whoever bought them for your group a check...save tons of money.

Viking Crown is not to be missed...Ask for Gabriella before you sit and order a Choclatini. You will thank me later. Tell her to make it the way she likes it... by the way...the VC lounge runs 3 specials during the week. the best is the buy one get one free martini night....mmmmmmmm

Johnnie Rockets made to order eggs...Ask for Homer ....and ask for whatever you want for breakfast...they will figure it out if they have the ingredients...
NEVER crowded and your breakfast will be served piping hot!!!!!

we had a ton of kids...so smart they are as I give them credit for figuring this trick...evidently if you are on level 3....the DOWN button has priority...SO if you want to go UP...press down....get on the elevator...and then press your HIGHER Floor number...and VOILA' you immediately go up and laugh at the people you left behind.

More to come later. I have to take a nap.

Default Great "secret" tips!

Thanks so much for sharing! Even though all of us CC members will know about them, I'm sure there will be thousands on each cruise that will not know!

It's exactly what I meant

The artist creates art using highly toxic resin. They look like what grows in a petri dish..
