Cooking
We did the cooking class at Prospect Plantation as a ship excursion from Oasis of the Seas on March 17. Since we had already done Dunn River Falls, Mystic Mountain, and Tubing, we were looking for...

Could not print separate set sail pass for second passenger.

So reprinted joint pass which now shows us as Diamond. Old pass did not.

We probably have the same situation coming up. TA told us that solo person will not have to pay extra nor share room. My Mom (who is going to miss cruise) paid cruise line, so they have their...
Soda cup on ebay
My DD found a RCI Coca-Cola cup on eBay. She wants to know if she will be able to use it in the machines on our upcoming Oasis cruise. I said no, it has a cruise-specific chip.

Am I right?
My Plan for Oasis
We are a group of 12 ranging from age 4 to 90. My mom (age 90) will be arriving separately by bus and we need to have a meeting place on board.

So we plan to grab some seats outside Vintages...

We will be on the same cruise. A group of 12 with ages from 4 to 90.

We are still trying to settle Jamaica choices, but probably will include Dunn River Falls. I am in 60's and NOT athletic and...

Great tip about the car seat! We have a 4.5 flying in to cruise with us in March. She wasn't sure whether or not to bring booster seat, car seat, or skip it. Now we know to check FL laws. Was...

Wow!

Yes that's me who is Xander's Grandma and Jennifer's Mom. You must be that handsome guy married to my favorite retired state rep! Don't know how your weather is up there, but it was 72 here...
wifi question
When you say two devices, does that mean two devices at a time or only two devices period?

I have 3 devices that I use and my husband has 2. On prior Oasis cruise we were able to take turns and...
Vegetarian in Giovanni's and Chops on Oasis
We are treating our family to a cruise on the Oasis in March. We would like to celebrate as a family in Giovanni's one night and Chops another night. Our problem is that my daughter-in-law is a...

We booked 2 cruises with a deposit of $200 each for a total of $400 onto our credit card.

If we cancel the first cruise, we receive $0.

They say that we can not apply it as additional deposit...
Thank you!
We will be on the Oasis on 3/14 with lots of family and these will be a huge help for the over-planners in our group.

One question, though ...

I see from the Diamond Benefits that cocktails...

According to my TA, if we book a phantom cruise, it will still remain nonrefundable per Celebrity. She asked about that. She has been talking to regular/clueless Celebrity people who appear to have...

You are indeed wrong. I was not trying to get a little something for nothing.

I was not positive at the time that we would be able to make it, but figured that since the deposit amount was...

Great review. Thanks for taking the time to write it.

We will be on the Oasis again in March and appreciate your tip about the zip-line. My kids will head for it first thing.
OP Here
Please believe me, we check every item on our bill and there was no OBC. There is no way we would have missed a $400 credit.

I can see how the immediate OBC would be a very nice benefit and...

Thanks for the link. I find it interesting that the deposit is clearly stated to be non-refundable for Cruise Later but not so clearly stated for Cruise Now. I have booked on board in the past and...

Interesting. If we did, it was done without our knowledge. What would be the advantage of this program? We would not have made the reservation if we had known this.

And, this was booking a...
