Sample Menus from Oasis. Shown in reverse order, 7-1

Days 5 and 6 switch depending on if you are doing Eastern or Western

 

Fennel Soup, veal chop, and fried rice are nice.  Good meal to end the week

We skip this 90% of the time. Try the tomato mozzarella short rib if you must

Well, according to the rules, Pinnacles are accommodated as well. Why is this so hard to understand.  😉

 

Last I looked the R in RCI was for Royal, not Rory. 🤣

That is the current rule, true. But Royal may change them at anytime. You know that. On cruises where many P’s are onboard, something needs to be done to accommodate Suite Guests.

And once a year, they do. Maybe Twice if it's a TA.

We can not book the CK for dinner this September on line. Nor can we book Harmony for August. Strange. 

Agree - was very surprised to see it there listed. All time slots available. Maybe a new thing for next year. Or maybe there in error?

Envy? Jealousy?  Is not a P, and wants to be??  I don't understand the resistance to P's being welcomed in CK or SL either....rules/policy  clearly state that P's are welcomed into those venues!

We were recently on the Harmony in a GS and could not book online or via phone pre-cruise. Once we got our concierge letter, we emailed the concierge a few days prior to cruise and they CK bookings on the nights we wanted.

 

Last November, we were on the Symphony in a JS and made our CK reservations as soon as we embarked. On one of the nights we wanted to eat in CK was not available at the time we wanted, we just walked in and they said they could accommodate us.

I assume JS peeps still have to knock on the door to get into CK?

On “some” heavy P cruises space is limited. Many do B2B..... and can reserve times the week before limiting access to the SK/CK for Suite Guests.

Yes both, I think as this is a classic example projection. It seems it is difficult to understand that someone who has paid 100s of thousands of dollars to make it 700 points might get a perk.

Anthem has had the ability to book Coastal Kitchen through the cruise planner on some sailings too.

How many P’s were onboard your cruise in November (P Season)?

Curious but how do you tell by looking at the P’s if they are staying in a Suite?  Do they have a different namteag?

You can’t but 200+ P’s can’t all be staying in Suites.

I think M8’s resentment is for the P’s who do not book Suites. Suite occupants and P’s have equal access to CK and SL.....but I think M8 feels that suite occupants should have a higher priority to book a reservation.  

Why feel resentment towards someone who is only doing what is allowed? Take it up with Royal policy makers.  If one wants to book a suite and they’re all booked up.....what can one do?  Tell the early bird, hey, I have more points than you, so I deserve your suite !  

You can’t do anything but try for another time,  but I do find it difficult to believe that P’s take every single reservation in the CK every single night of the week .

I’d kind of like to know your rationale for thinking that all P’s need to stay in a suite.  Just curious.

As a shareholder you should be pleased some folks do B2B.
