    Cool Cruiser
  1. Congrats! Sailing on Oasis in March..cannot wait.
  2. Yes, usually assistant waiter who takes care of wine. In a large group, we would rotate each night tipping $10 to the assistant waiter because we all drank wine and all had the drink package. It has worked well for us and never had an empty glass.
  3. We have not purchased the dining package, however when we pre-book Chops for instance for 5 (2 adults & 3 kids) we pay full price upfront. At your reservation, they will refund you the difference of the full service charge minus the $10 kids fee as an OBC for each child.
  4. It will probably go lower. I would be patient and keep looking. I have purchased the deluxe drink package for cheaper on this cruise.
  5. You received good advice on here, I would only add that if you do pre-pay the credit you receive for your children will be in the form of an OBC (not refunded to your credit card).
  6. If your husband does not drink alcohol, but you do, I would call C&A and tell them your situation. They will most likely allow you to purchase the deluxe beverage package & refreshment package.
  7. We are going on the Oasis next year, and it will make my children very happy if they add the Abyss and water slides. They loved these items on the HOS. I imagine most parents with young children going on these ships will welcome the additions to the Oasis & Allure.
  8. My experience has been when you see a good price pull the trigger. Prices tend to go higher the closer you get to sail date. Sometimes there are good last minute deals if you are able to do last minute, but generally best prices are 1 year prior to sail date.
  9. I would go with Giovanni's. We chose Giovanni's over Chops because we were told the filet in Giovanni's was better than Chops. The filet in Giovanni's did not disappoint it was very good, in addition to the other options. We had a great waiter and experience at Giovanni's. I would also suggest 150 Central Park...Tuna Tatar was fantastic. We went March 2018. Have fun.
  10. Thank you MikeDIslanders for the thoughtful post and inquiry.
