Not sure if you're doing Eastern or Western Caribbean. Here's how it was on on recent b2b Allure cruises in October.

Due to the itinerary formal nights on the Eastern itinerary are day 2 and day 6 and on the Western itinerary are day 2 and day 5.

Menu Themes for Eastern
day 1 Mojo
day 2 Saffron (formal)
day 3 Pimiento
day 4 S**take
day 5 Basil
day 6 Jasmin (formal)
day 7 Pomodoro

Menu Themes for Western
day 1 Mojo
day 2 Saffron (formal)
day 3 Pimiento
day 4 S**take
day 5 Jasmin (formal)
day 6 Basil
day 7 Pomodoro

We loved Allure and hope to sail on here again one day soon.

This is interesting; maybe I have something wrong. I have Fishermans plate listed on S**take night. Isn't the lobster always on the second formal night? Did you have lobster on menu on the day 5 Jasmin menu?

Is the board system blocking the word shiitake?

Yes, the board automatically blocks profanities and cruise booking website URL's.

Looks like the second formal night on Allure serves Jasmin menu. The Freedom had Shiitake the second formal night. So, does the Fisherman's plate (Lobster) always show up on second form night, no matter whether the menu is "Jasmin" or "Shiitake"?

I too was wondering if Oasis follows Allure in the menu rotation... gotta book all those specialty restaurants!

I printed a menu I found on CC before we went on Allure. Not sure where I found it but on that menu the titles for Shiitake and Jasmin were reversed. The Jasmin menu has Fisherman's Plate on the 2nd formal night and the Shiitake menu has Rack of Lamb.

Not sure how it is on other ships but this was my experience on Allure.

OK, thanks, maybe the entrees and the desserts swapped? I'd think the creamed wild mushrooms would stay with the "Shiitake" meal and now I understand it to be on Wed.

This is what I have from the link above based on the Freedom, days changed but same menu items grouped together. What needs to be changed to reflect the Allure Jasmin Allure Shiitake? Do all main courses and desserts swap or just the rack of lamb and the fisherman's plate? The Shiitake menu posted doesn't look too inviting w/o the Lobster or souffle.

Am I the only one confused here? Not sure what is on each menu, nor if Oasis is the same as Allure. Anyone able to help? Many thanks.

Pasted in odd before. This is what a Freedom review called Shiitake and Jasmine night but not sure about Allure. Sounds like, at a min, the Fisherman's Plate and rack of lamb have switched but not sure if entire menu switched

(ie just swap header; if do that, mushroom appet served on Jasmine night)

Looks like the headers were swapped on the Freedom review menu posting and this link has pictures and menus and helps straighten everything out!

For anyone confused, like me, this thread should help identify what is offered on particular menu nights and other posters have the eastern/western figured out.

If you look at the thread CP3o posted (above) the actual photos of the menus shows the lamb served on the Shiitake menu, and the fisherman's plate served on the Jasmine menu... (also a formal night).

Now as to which nights these would be on Oasis, not sure. I'm going to move forward under the presumption they would be the same as Allure. That's what I would do if I was in charge - .

This also had me confused. And the root of the problem is that the the Jasmine and Shiitake menus are reversed from FOS to Allure/Oasis.

Here's the FOS Jasmine Menu...


Here's the Allure/Oasis Jasmine Menu...


From what I can tell, everything else is the same.

The order of menus on Allure/Oasis is as in post #2... for FOS... this appears to be the list to go by... https://www.dropbox.com/s/idx7jb0iaj...CI%20Menus.pdf

For Reference, here's a link to pictures of the FOS menus...
