    Silent Disco - Oasis of the Seas

    I did silent disco for the first time last week on the Celebrity Summit. One channel was one of the ship's bands that was playing live in the room. It was a ton of fun to watch I have also seen it on a Royal ship but can remember which one (I have never been on a Quantum class so I know it was not Anthem) Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app

    Summit Live, June 27-July 8, 2018

    Enjoy. We got off the Summit this morning. Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  4. Thank you for the idea. There are multiple restaurants that look good Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  5. We are flying into EWR the morning of 6/16 and sailing on the Summit 6/17 landing at approx. 9:30 am. We plan on taking the hotel shuttle Residence Inn in Elizabeth City - I have flown into Newark before so I know I need to get bags and then take the airtran to P4. I am trying to find something to do for a few hrs in the afternoon besides going to see a movie. We don't have a car but are comfortable using Uber. I had thought maybe a nice lunch and seeing something in Elizabeth (but what?). All my research keeps either saying go shopping or visit NYC. We live outside of Washington DC and have been to NYC multiple times - lots of fun to visit but not for just a few hrs when staying in NJ. I don't think shopping at the New Jersey Mills Mall will be a popular idea since it be window shopping and we have Potomac Mills not that far away. We are a party of 3 - all adults - myself and my BFF are early 50's, my daughter is 23

    Cabins on the end of the ship

    Aft is my favorite location. I have stayed aft many times on many different ships. I also splurged and stayed in one of the owners suites at the front of Empress (8506). It was a different experience with a very unusual balcony but the wind when underway made it difficult to enjoy.

    St Geroge Beach Bus question

    Is the Beach Bus running this year? I found information from past years Does anyone have current price and schedule information? We will be on the Summit in mid-June Thank you in advance Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  8. The information you need is here: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/apply-renew-passport/card.html As documented on the state department website, the card is fine for the cruise you are taking (St. Martin is in the Carribean). As you already noted both are passports - the card has limited use. I now have both a book and a card. I use the card when I fly - I will not have a real ID compliant license before my state waiver expires and travel outside of the US with my passport book. Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app

    Sky suite class question

    My Sky class experience on Oasis - you need to book the comedy show. If it is full the concierge may be able to help but don't count on it. All other shows have reserved seating - as someone said just show your card at the door. They hold the reserved section until 20 min before the show. I had reserved some of the shows (initially I was in a non-suite, when I told the person scanning cards they did not even scan us in). Agree request Coastal Kitchen times when you get the e-mail There did not seem to be any other way to prebook Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  11. I commented on the post cruise survey in early March how helpful it was having the Windjammer theme in the compass. Wish every ship did this Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  12. Thank you for you service and enjoy your cruise. We also sailed March 2nd and loved it. Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  13. I enjoyed having one of my favorites back. I also love the strawberry cold soup. Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
  14. I was in a suite and took the photo of the copy of the menu they put in the room. Suite guests get a copy each day because you can order dining room food from room service when the dining room is open Sent from my VS987 using Forums mobile app
