Hello everyone ! I am very happy to bring you another “LIVE” Report from the the Oasis of the Seas.

I arrived in Fort Lauderdale this afternoon, and will be staying 2 nights at the Hyatt Pier 66 before I board the Oasis of the Seas on Saturday morning. The weather was a little warmer today (68F), than it was when I left Maryland yesterday (29F).

For those of you who are new to Cruise Critic. . . This will be more than a Cruise Ship review. Many of you who are aware of my “LIVE” reports know that I will be posting daily comments and reports on the Oasis of the Seas, with daily photos of the public areas, lounges, and hopefully all of the Entertainment, Sports, and Dining areas of the ship.

There will also be comments and photos of the ports of call during the week. I am hoping that my Internet connection will be reliable, as I will require a stable connection to post photos throughout the week.

The ship appears to be nearly full, so I am hoping to find out the exact number of passengers that will be aboard.

Oasis of the Seas will sail the Eastern Caribbean itinerary, visiting the ports of Saint Thomas, Saint Maarten, and Nassau.

This should be a fun week on Oasis of the Seas. . .So sit back. . Have a cup of Coffee, and Thanks for tuning in.

Can't wait to read your reports, Radio. We will be flying down next Friday and will be boarding when you get off. Can you just check one thing out for me? Do you have to double check that all your shows are on your seapass. My DH's cousin is on there now and I told her to check and she went to GR when she boarded and checked it out. The person that I spoke to at C&A said to check it out when I checked in at the port. Just curious if it is even necessary.

Thanks and have a GREAT time.

I can't wait to read the review Radio!

I will be getting a double dose of the Oasis review because my Mother-in-Law is getting off the Oasis tomorrow morning just as you will be boarding! I told her she has to tell me everything, she is an expert cruiser and is at the highest level on nearly every cruise line's loyalty club so she has plenty of experience on ships!
