  1. Going to be in St. Thomas on the Oasis next week and have never been downtown from Crown Bay. What is the best way to get downtown from Crown Bay? Thanks in advance.
  2. We have used taxis in the past with less than satisfactory experiences, never had a problem with Lyft.
  3. We are doing a park, stay and cruise at a hotel near the port but are not enthused about waiting for the shuttle provided by the hotel, does Lyft operate in Port Canaveral?
  4. My wife and are have cruised throughout the Caribbean and are going to do Alaska the last week of August. We have no idea on clothing or jackets or shoes or other things that might be specific to Alaskan cruises. Will we ever wear shorts? How heavy of jackets? Will we need boots? I have surmised that we will need rain gear but everything else is unknown. Help and suggestions please!
  5. Before a cruise my DW saves singles and I always have several in my pocket. Even with the package I tip waiter or bartender an extra dollar and while I can't swear that it makes any difference I usually can easily find a waiter and my drinks always taste good.
  6. In 2014 on my 60th birthday we were in FLL pre cruise and my family rented a Camaro SS convertible for the day from Sixt. We picked it up in town and returned it to the airport. This was a birthday present so I don't know the price but the over all experience was a good one.
  7. Thanks for all the responses our minds are more at ease, I have a hard time comprehending a group chartering a ship the size of Oasis.
  8. The last two times we booked an RCCL cruise they were both cancelled due to refurbishments. We are looking at January of 2017 and are wondering if anyone has heard if the Oasis is due for drydock? It is disconcerting to book and plan for a cruise only to have it pulled away.
  9. We stayed at the Residence two years ago and had one of the best stays in a hotel ever. The employees from the manager on down seemed honestly concerned that our stay be perfect.
  10. This may have been covered in other posts but combing through those can be very tedious. My questions are; If paying for drink package while still in port is a state tax charged? and if you buy the package after sail away does RCCL give credit for drinks already purchased that day? The reason for the second question is that I know Carnival gives credit for drinks purchased on the day you buy the package. Thanks in advance for your answers.
  11. :oAfter redeeming over $500 worth of Visa points for OBC online I am confused on what I need to do to insure this amount is credited to our account. The online redemption site said something about contacting our TA or calling RCCL. Does anyone know the procedure? Thanks for the help.
  12. Thanks, she is happily looking forward to January.
  13. My wife has just discovered a new favorite drink and is afraid she won't be able to get it on our cruise. Can anyone tell me if she will be enjoying Jameson & ginger ale on the Independence in January?
