"LIVE" From the Oasis of the Seas / March 6, 2010

Recommended Posts

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.

Hi Radio

 

We are sooooo looking forward to your review. We only have 443 more days to go until we're on the beautiful Oasis. Have a wonderful time.

 

Also,if you have the chance could you find out if and when the Oasis might dock at the Havensight pier in St Thomas.

 

Thank you

 

Bon Voyage

Liz

 

P.S. Could you also take a pic of cabin 9598;)

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!

Jim,

 

I know you have the firebox stoked and banked with a full head of steam ready to pull out of FLL station tomorrow. Fair winds and following seas to you and Carol.

28 posts and Radio hasn't gotten to the pier! This is going to be good, but Radio's 'live' threads are always good.

 

Enjoy the voyage and thanks for letting us tag along!

Radio, so excited that you're doing another live report...and this time from Oasis!

 

I just booked us onto her for April 2011 (so very long away) since our February 2011 cruise was chartered out under us.

 

If you can, and I realize you'll be busy, do you think you might have a chance to take some pictures of the Central Park View (no balcony) rooms on Deck 9? I booked us into #9593 (quad occupancy) and am hoping that the view is unobstructed. It's on the starboard side, and appears to be located over Vintages Wine Bar.

 

Any information you can offer on this category of cabins would be so appreciated. I think it will be a good size (199 sf) as opposed to a balcony (and is much less expensive), but I have a lot of time, and if the prices change and I can move us around (if this cabin won't really work for us), I'd like to know in advance.

 

Hope you have a fabulous time and looking forward to your live reports.

HOORAY!! Another week with Radio! :) Well Radio, your review of Freedom convinced me to give her a try--and I LOVED it! Lets see if you can do the same for Oasis! My brother is campaigning to get a family cruise booked on the Oasis, but I am reluctant because she just seems too big....can't wait to see what you think!

Thanks for keeping us informed and have a great cruise! My family is planning on 2012 on the Oasis, and even though that is a long way off, it is never too early to get excited and see what we have to look forward too!

 

Thanks again!!!!
