Trainman-2

LIVE From the Oasis of the Seas - Sailing 17 September 2011 (Saturday)

Recommended Posts

Great report, we're enjoying your entire cruise while making plans for ours in March on Oasis in the western carribean. When you had your fruit plate in the MDR, did you request that the nite before with your server or was there some other way you did it. We have never heard of anyone doing this, but it is something we would enjoy also. Enjoy the rest of your cruise and keep the pictures coming.

I'm sensing a Trainman breakfast special tomorrow morning.

 

Would love to see the pic of the four link sausages on that bagel with jelly and cream cheese. ;)

Fixin's for the infamous Trainman Sausage Sandwich and I tried the Miso Soup which was good but I have no clue what was in it.

My thoughts on Falmouth...

 

Clearly the port is still under construction but it is just a clear that more and better things are on the way.

 

I am guessing that the clear flat area in the background is where the spoil was dumped when they dredged the port area for Oasis & Allure. Judith and I both feel that this will be still more expansion of the port.

Many buildings have been completely restored and many more are in the process of being restored.

All of the traditional stores you expect to find an a Caribbean Port were there.

 

Still to come are the Eateries & Bars (No Senior Frogs)

 

Inside the Terminal Area lots was going on and they had a bunch of benches (unfortunately in the sun) for the Old Folks to rest on.

Bagel?????? It's always on an English Muffin. Rumor has it that they toss you overboard if you try to make a Trainman special with a bagel.

We were in there for about 2 hours looking around, checking things out, and spending our money.

We got Judith a Hat, and tee shirts, and matching Island Shirts, and Refrigerator Magnets, and shopping bags.

We found the Pirate Ship. It is the "Captain Hook" www.capitanhook.com

 

There are actually two ships, a big one for the passengers and a smaller on to attack it during a mock sea battle. I was impressed with the ship and the crew and when we come back we are going to take the lunch tour.

We were pooped when we returned to the ship but headed up to the Windjammer for a light lunch.

After Dinner we went back to our cabin and relaxed awhile and then headed for the Opal Theater and This Week's Headliner Show

 

ABBACADABRA

 

They were Fantastic!

 

They do an exact copy of the original ABBA which was one of my favorite groups from the old days.

 

They announced in advance no recording of any kind but they didn't say "No Photos" so here are a few that will give you the "flavor" of the event. They were taken from the rear of the balcony and are not too great.

It's past my bed time folks and it has been a long day so I will close tonight with these two photos of Judith.

 

She really likes these "birds" and I think if she could, she would pry them up off the floor and smuggle them off the ship.

Tomorrow will be sea day so I will try to get caught up on my postings.

Trainman, I know an artist (wood carver/furniture) in the Destin, FL area that could possibly make a copy for you... He made us four works of art in adirondack chairs: a turtle, parrots, fish and a sea serpent. Take some close-ups while on board if you might be interested. :) Enjoy your day at sea!

Thanks for the time and effort on your live review!! I was surprised you go to WJ buffet almost everyday for breakfast and lunch. It seems most people in their reviews complained about how crowded it is all the time and ended up going to other places to eat. How is your experience at WJ?

This is fantastic, and perfect timing. Today was "crazy hat day" at my DD's school. Guess what she wore?...

Looks like you had a nice day in Falmouth, LOVED the pictures! I am so enjoying this cruise and it is making me even more excited for my FOS cruise in December. I cannot wait to try some of the new menu items. Lasagna is one of my favorites as well as Banana Cream Pie.

 

Thank you for all the time & cost and work you put into your 'LIVE' reports..and also for sharing you and Judith's vacation with the rest of us.

Day 5 - Wednesday - At Sea

 

 

Good Morning Everyone,

 

I overslept again this morning and my plans for a long photographic "Walk-About" around the Promenade and Pool Deck were thwarted.

 

Here we are, somewhere in the Caribbean.

 

DSCN3667.jpg

It was raining when I first went out onto our balcony but it cleared up quickly.

Thanks for the pics at dinner last night:)

 

Also if you have been to the Aqua Theater, did you notice if there were a section saved for Diamond Plus Crown and Anchors Members or was it a free for all once they open the seating area?

 

 

Jimbo:)

Judith asked me to shoot this photo of her yesterday.

I like the sculptures of the dog and the bunny on the Miniature Golf Course.

That's because your body sense the rain that was on the pool deck, and knew tomorrow would be a better day. Relax and enjoy your cruise.
