Live Oasis of the Seas Western Aug 19 thread

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

It's my first time doing a live thread. We are currently in the Ottawa airport waiting for our flight to Toronto Pearson - then Orlando! Staying overnight tonight and we have a transfer to terminal tomorrow morning.

 

It's just me and my Mom. I surprised her on Mother's Day with our first ever balcony room. We will be in Central Park and I got the deluxe beverage package for the first time.

 

Pretty excited! I'll also be on Instagram for a lot of the cruise. I'll post the link once we get onboard :)

 

Any questions or anything you want to know just ask and I'll do my best to check it out.

 

We have My Time Dining and First Night Done Right. We are booked for Cat's day 1!

Perfect timing for a live review as we are boarding next Sunday, so this will tide me over until it's our turn. Hope you have a great time!!

Currently on our way on the bus to the port! We will be there in 45 minutes. It's happening!!!

 

We spent three night walking around Disney Springs. Its so beautiful there! I just had to go straight to the Marvel store and get a Captain America hoodie. We walked around until midnight then came back to get some sleep... But we were both up every hour asking if it was time yet. Oooops

Could you let us know if you get your sea pass at check in or if they are at the cabins? We know Oasis now has individual set sail passes for each guest, but no one has confirmed whether sea pass cards are now at the cabins as they are on other ships. Thanks.

Wow so 150 Central Park is everything and a bag of chips. It's beautiful inside, calming, and a nice refuge from the rush of a cruise ship on it's first day.

 

So one of the coolest things they did was give you unsalted butter from Germany, accompaigned by home made breads and six kinds of flavoured salts from around the world. You add the salt to the butter you put on your bread and sample them all. Delicious and a pretty innovative idea.

 

I had the lobster gnocci as a starter which was amazing. I would eat it everyday for the rest of my life.

 

We shared the beef tenderloin for two. It comes as a tableside service and I highly recommend it. I'm not a beef person but it was like velvet and melted in my mouth.

 

Our waiter continued to fill up our wine glasses even though we were full. I mentioned how the cheese they has looked amazing and he wrapped up a cheese plate for us. Wow!

 

Only bad thing was the push to buy specialty dining plan.

 

Now... Cats I really wanted to give a chance to. I know how much negativity CC gives it and I thought it was fussy people. The dancing was great and the stage was pretty cool... But we ducked out at intermission ad it just wasn't our thing. I really wanted it to be our thing. It just made no sense and that's not on the performers... They're great.

 

We spent the rest of the night in the casino donating from me on roulette. Service was terrible though, no drink orders at our table for almost 1 hour. The other players got pretty mad about that. Almost as mad as this old Greek man who blew $900....

I can't comment on that as I had a private escort onto the ship because of my career. As far as I know, everyone had their cards at check in.

Day 2 today! We are at sea. I'm up early (7:30) to catch some Rays by the pool.

 

I have guacamole making at 10:45 today, then our free Giovanni's Table lunch at noon that came with our room.

 

Tonight we have Oasis of Dreams!

 

I'm pretty sad I missed Infinity War being played outside last night. I'm a huge Marvel fan. Hopefully they replay it
