    I have used both WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger on the ship with no issues.
  3. Thanks for the post! I was supposed to be on this cruise, but my little man fractured his arm just before the cruise. Glad to hear such a positive review. We'll be on Oasis next month! Woo hoo!

    OMG, I busted out laughing at this comment.
  5. My ex says he is more upset about ruining MY vacation. My boy is such a sweetheart. I am truly blessed. I hope I don't have to wait too long before planning the next one.
  6. Wow. What a story. Thank you for sharing.
  7. Oh, we were on the same sailing? Yes, it would have been nice to meet you! Sorry, Wendy now lives up here in Michigan with me 9 months of the year. Well, not WITH me, but a few miles down the road. Ha ha, no. That's Patrick. Nicolas (aka #theboy) is Sharse's son. But I'll let him know that everyone wishes him well. Thanks everyone for the information and the well wishes! Once his arm heals, I will look into another cruise. I can't wait to take my little man!
  8. Yes, I suppose there are a few ways to look at it. Although it is already spent, I see it as RCI is giving me a free cruise in the future. :)
  9. Exactly! There is a silver lining! Thank you! I wanted people to see a real-world example of why the insurance is worth the money. $118 for insurance and I got over $2000 back. All of this just three days before the cruise.
  10. Well, first of all, your screen name is hilarious. Second, the insurance is called Allianz Travel Insurance, which I think is through RCI. My travel agent had recommended it, said it was very good coverage. It was $118 for the two of us. Since she did all the paperwork, I really don't know much more than that. I see you also have experience with arm fractures. How long was your son in his cast?
  11. We were scheduled to leave for the Oasis of the Seas on this Sunday when... ...this happened. Fell at camp and got two fractures in his arm. Swelling is so bad that his doctor said, "Absolutely no travel, especially flying." Which sort of put a damper on the whole trip. After the shock wore off, I called my travel agent and forced myself to say, "Cancel our trip." Those were not easy words to utter, my friends. But she assured me that I would be getting 100% reimbursement. Which means...no problem, I'll just book another damn cruise with this kid once his arms heals. Maybe I'll even be a bad mom and pull him out of school. My little patient is okay, feeling fine except for a little pressure in his arm. He is now in a full-arm cast which will stay on for four weeks. Arrrrgh. Kids. But, feeling very relieved that I bought the insurance. Today's "mishap" just means that our cruise got pushed out. You never know what will happen! Today's lesson: BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE, PEOPLE!
  12. You should post a review when you get back and share your experiences with us. I hope you enjoy RCI, I've been a loyal customer since 1999.
  13. Pffft. I WISH. ETA: Oh wait. That comment was for another poster. Oops. Why, thank you so much! I love writing, and I love that people enjoy my writing. I can only hope that my next trip has enough material to keep it engaging. First of all, thank you for being the only person to acknowledge the blocker. For a minute, I thought no one was picking up on that. Second, I love that this report has brought out so many fellow solo travelers. Do you ever write about your trips? Third, thank you so much for your compliments. Each one means a lot to me. Happy that you enjoyed it so much! Well, I think I'm fun, but opinions may vary on that. I have a very strong personality when I'm in my comfort zone, but can also tone it down considerably around introverts. I'm good with all kinds of people. Except Richards. Definitely not Richards.
  14. Well dang if that isn't an incredible compliment. Thank you! I have fantasized about stand up throughout my adult life, but honestly I don't think I have what it takes. My reports take hours and hours of writing and rewriting, so I don't think that improvisational comedy is my thing. Thank you! :) Aww, thank you. But I had to go. Cuz it was over and stuff. 27 days and counting until we board...but Lord knows HOW long the recap will take to write. Am considering bringing my laptop on the cruise to get a jump start on the writing, but i'm not sure. So you know EXACTLY where I'm coming from. I talk to my boy a LOT about the kid's club so that I can fill his head with all sorts of expectations that he will be forced to socialize with peers. Oh, the horrors!
