"LIVE" from Oasis of the Seas / Jan 22, 2011

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone ! I am very happy to bring you another “LIVE” Report from the Oasis of the Seas. I sailed last year (March 2010), and am looking forward to any changes that may have been implemented.

 

I arrived in Orlando this morning, after an overnight trip down on Amtrak‘s AutoTrain. I spent the day at Universal Studios, and will be spending the night here in Orlando. Tomorrow morning I will get up early and travel south down to Fort Lauderdale at the Hyatt Pier 66 before I board the Oasis of the Seas on Saturday morning. The weather today was nice and warm (78F). I know that Maryland will be having a snowstorm tomorrow, so I am glad to be south !

 

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. I usually post at least 12 photos per day of what’s happening on board, and in the ports.

 

I will be on the Western Caribbean Itinerary this week, and we will visit Labadee, Costa Maya, and Cozumel. I am very excited about seeing Celebrity Eclipse (Costa Maya), and Norwegian Epic (Cozumel).

 

I know that I started my “LIVE” post a little early, but I couldn’t wait to start another post, and another Cruise. I really enjoy offering day to day commentary, and I am very happy to be sailing again on Oasis of the Seas. . .

 

I think this will be a fun cruise, so sit back relax, and enjoy the ride. . . .

Hey Mark

 

Is Mrs. Radio with you this trip? Can't wait to see if changes were made. We love the Allure. Oh my gosh what a ship. Excited to read all week for sure. We were just talking about your hotel and decided to book a week at the Marriot Beach Place before heading to the Allure in December.

Its been about 18 days since I am off ExOTS, I could really use this Virtual cruise!

Looking forward to sailing (& reading) along!

:)

Im not tempted to try the Flow Rider, but try the Zip Line! (Are there lines for this? Do you need to reserve before you go? Can you ride often?) After going on Dragons Flight line on Labadee I cant wait for June to ride a zip line again on Oasis.

Thanks, Stacey. . . I will try the Zip Line this time, and I will also do the Dragons Tail Coaster in Labadee. . .

 

Mrs Radio did the Oasis Zip line las March, and it doesn't need to be reserved. You can go as much as you want. . .The wait was about 10 minutes.

Hi Radio,

I will be posting "Live" from the Allure while you are posting "Live" from the Oasis.

 

We have got to get together and coordinate a joint cruise so we can post live together one day.

Have a great cruise on the Oasis...
