  1. Still seeking a definitive answer for what the Waterfront Beach Cabanas @ Nellie's Beach are. They were even more expensive than the Over the Water ones, but it's not clear where they are located. There is a detailed map of Barefoot Beach, but seemingly not for Nellie's. RCCL support has been unable to answer this one, for some reason.
  2. Just booked for our family's sailing on Oasis in December. The online reservation didn't allow us to add our youngest - he's 3 YO. Is that because he isn't allowed to join, or because they don't charge for kids under 5? We paid full price for our 7 and 10 year olds. Obviously can call RCCL tomorrow but thought someone might know here.
  3. How were the seas after you finally sailed away? Rough sledding or still managable?
  4. She is indeed at sea. Fingers crossed for all booked on the upcoming sailings.
  5. If you search my username, you will see a separate thread I had on it, in fact. Long story short, TWO recategorizations, the most recent was about a month ago (after final payment in full). Connecting is a MUST because we are travelling with 3 kids under 10 years old. After several hours grinding on the phone, we finally got relocated from Deck 12 to Deck 8 with no difference in fare offered - in fact, they specifically said they were told by "revenue" to dig in on cases like this. I was told the cabin categories are the same, though it appears I was moved from a pair of 2Ds to a pair of 4Ds. Ultimately, I had no leverage because I have already purchased over $4k in non-refundable flights, and have planned for a few nights in Miami ahead of the sailing. Still, I have a sour taste in my mouth and I am still not convinced it won't happen again. The rep told me he "hoped" there wouldn't be any more recategorizations, but that he wasn't sure - your case suggests there is still shuffling of cabins, which is downright asinine at this point.
  6. Up to you. There is an allowance you can carry on. You can also purchase an Evian Water package with a bunch of water bottles delivered to your room upon embarkation or on a set date later in the cruise. Also can go with one of the drink packages, which can include bottled water at the bars/restaurants around the ship.
  7. Apologies for the re-post but there are now two active threads on this. On the social media site most frequented by the current US president, Royal Carribbean's official twitter is saying as recently as 55 minutes ago that "Oasis is resuming sailing on 11/24" and "No changes have been made to [these] sailings" and "This is just a rumor and there are no cancellations for Oasis." I am sailing 12/29 so I certainly hope things are set. Also went thru TWO recategorizations for this same sailing, so I am over the nonsense reshuffling of cabins. Let's go!

  9. That's a great idea. I doubt it would be without passengers, but a transatlantic voyage is definitely a different dynamic either way. I've been fortunate to cruise a bunch of times in my life, including 2 transatlantics on the long- defunct QE2 - albeit one of the great ocean liners or her time. The seas, the weather, and the notion of nothing but sea days between Southampton and NYC was unique, yet awesome.
  10. Will be on the New Year's Sailing of Oasis on 12/29. See you there!
  11. We're looking at a private charter on Cozumel in early Jan. Any idea if this bans all visits to El Cielo, for example, or if it's specific to the reefs? Not knowing the area well, would the boat still be able to land at a spot that allows folks to get in the sandy bottom water and/or swim to the beach?
  12. Obviously you don't go on a cruise if you're worried about motion, but how rough is the water on a private boat tour down to El Cielo? Definitely considering that for our family, but the wife is a bit sensitive about small boats in open water. Thanks!
  13. Taking a look at Royalton Sands vs Hyatt Ziva. Anyone have opinions?
