    Is tipping optional??

    1. I never said I wouldn't tip. 2. When I won this cruise nothing was said about have to pay $200 in tips, that is over $1200. in my money 3. I highly doubt as someone else said that the staff works for only $50 a day. I actually know two people who still work or used to work on cruise ships and although I have never asked the salary, the way they talk they salary was not that pitiful. 4. The word tip/gratuity means bonus, gift, token, unexpected extra. It does not mean salary. It is a little extra for what I deem to be exceptional service.

    I would also like to point out that we don't tip here in Trinidad either, if we ever do it is our choice for extra special treatment and it is NOT 20%. This is also my first cruise and has nothing to do with affording since it is a prize. Also 1USD is a little over 6TTD so for the tips expected are a lot. Tipping is an American thing but cruising is not so it unfair for posters to bash other posters whose culture is not like that.
  3. [quote name='Radio']I walked about 3 blocks up to where the Hard Rock Cafe, Senor Frogs, and drugstore was. . . and then I took a cab down to Majuhual where the boardwalk was ($2 each way / pp) I have many other photos of Costa Maya, and will post when I return home. . . Radio ;);) .[/QUOTE] Good to know I will be there on the Oasis on the next Western run so I am taking notes.
  4. Hey Radio were you able to walk to all those places in Costa Maya today?

    Catholic services

    I have been wondering that myself, I plan to have the readings and study it in my Bible if they don't have Mass on the ship but it would be great if there was a priest. I am on the Oasis in February and I am hoping for one.
  6. Hey Radio, Do you think we could get a look at some meals????

    First Timer Here ~ setting sail in March

    Congratulations, I am also going on my first cruise on the Oasis but in February and another route. I also won my cruise. I can tell you from all the help and people I have found on this site join the Roll Call for you cruise (go to the meet and mingle roll calls board, choose Royal and then Oasis, look for the Roll call for your departure date), there are a lot of helpful cruisers some who have already been there, done that and can answer most of your questions.

    Oasis of The Seas Cruise Compass

    Thanks everyone for all the replies. Matisse05, I will definitely be tuning in.
  9. Since I will be cruising that route in a few weeks, I look forward to your posts.
  10. Does anyone have compasses for the Oasis the more recent the better. Does it differ Western to Eastern Caribbean? I am on a Western Caribbean Cruise. Thanks for any help.

    My Return Flight is not until night

    Okay so the dayroom hotel is NOT going to work they want to charge you an arm and a leg for a few hours. However I did look into the tours, there are two that fit my needs, both take me to the Miami airport at the end. 1. Hollywood City Pass 2. Sawgrass Mills Mall Express Anybody knows anything about either of these. I am looking to do some shopping and browsing. I'll need to stop for lunch and pick up something for dinner. I have never been to Florida. Which one sounds better?

  13. I am cruising out of Ft Lauderdale but my return flight is not until 7:30 pm after return in Miami Int'l, what can I do with myself and my luggage for over 8 hours. I plan to do some shopping but I don't know if I should stay in Ft Lauderdale or go straight to Miami and spend my day there. I have also been looking in the Public Transportation System for getting around so any advice there would be appreciated.
