Default April 2013 Oasis cruise compass, menus (multiple ships), etc

Thought I'd share shortcuts to things I spent AGES trying to find to help make my decisions (wanted to skip certain menus in MDR so I booked the specialty restaurants those nights). Here is the most recent cruise compass I could find AND current (spring) menus for MDR and 150 Central Park. These are the only two restaurants who have spring menus. Chef's Table specialty restaurant has a menu that varies every cruise or sometimes nightly. The other specialty restaurants have pretty much the same menus from cruise-to-cruise (which can be seen on RCI website) with some unpredictable variation daily or between cruises (Giovanni's menu changes more than for example Chops).

**Couple of notes not on compass or menus:
- In MDR, you can order multiple dishes for each course (just don't order ridiculously and waste the food...lots of hungry people out there)
- Different "after dinner shooter" daily in MDR
- Chocolate breakfast in MDR on mornings of character breakfast
- 2nd formal night in MDR is LOBSTER NIGHT
- Soda package will get you Shirley Temples

Were you on Eastern or Western itinerary? I understand the MDR does switch up the order of the menus - depending on the route. I could totally be wrong of course .

This info was posted for the Eastern route on Oasis. Menus should be the same on Allure and Western routes but possibly just different order (you can easily find the different menu days on CC and then come back to this post for what's on menu...i.e. the "basil" menu is always the same but may be scheduled for a different day).
