Well it's on the right side as you walk into American Icon, which is the Port/Left side of the ship. 

However, MTD doesn't start until 6:30. They use American Icon for one round of Early Seating at 5pm. Oasis never did that.

Remember to go the back podium.  JS qualifies for that service. They should seat you right away, but there are seats back there if you need to sit down

Got it...right side back podium. 

I’ll see if I can switch. Not sailing till March 39, dapper we should be ok. 

Hopefully 6:30 will work to get to the shows in time to get decent seats. 

Thanks.

Since this was a Welcome Party, the entire ship was invited for free drinks.  This seems new. It still was not very well attended.  That's a shame, we had a little preview of the Dive show later in the week.  And free cocktails. 🍹

 

They did this on Allure in June and even with the entire ship invited the aqua theater was only about one quarter full!  I expect to see it discontinued before long....

it was pathetic

He's really big for a diver.

It was a fun event.  The full show is done twice in the afternoon on Day 7. No reservations needed

Lunch in MDR since this is the only chance we can go this week.

They were doing Pasta, but Laura turned it into Stir Fry. 

It was very good, but sadly no pictures, my phone was charging.

 

If you don't take a picture, did it really happen?

 

Sailing past Cuba

Fridge in a GS seems bigger than the one in our balcony.  It is very cold as well.

This is strange since we have MTD reservations for 6:00 for 6 of us every night for 9/15 cruise. Are we going to be pushed to 6:30?

Off to see the lovely Wanpen. 😀

Once again a perfect massage.  

I did tell her when she was doing my back that I really liked the warm oil. 

Next thing I know i have a gallon of it on me. Very slippery. 😂

 

We did a selfie for you all.  She will be onboard until March for all your treatment needs.

As mentioned earlier, I got talked into a hot stone massage later in the week.  $20 extra, but worth it, as I found out.

 

There is an available duplex outlet in the treatment room as well.  Knowing where power is can be helpful.

You know, I'm not sure. Someone earlier said they had 6pm MTD as well.  I'll try and ask tonight

WJ for dinner. Want to do the Mongolian Grill

 

Laura does her usual. Peppers, Onions, Galic, Chili flakes, and a combo of soy/terriaki

20190820_180138.thumb.jpg.b1542073d9f6036d2164568e40804921.jpg

 

I am more creative.  Plus I like the Sweet Chili sauce.  I also used basmati rice and had him add it to the wok

20190820_180143.thumb.jpg.87a3cc4141595885025d25e0bd92dc2e.jpg

 

Oh, and no view of ocean from WJ

Yep, nothing

Casino after dinner. We didn't lose the farm.😉

We'll be back

 

Got a picture with CJ, walked around the Promenade a bit.

 

Bionic Bar was hopping.

Then off to our 9:30 comic.  Laura actually made it.

First guy was OK. The second guy was hillarious. 

I'll verify their names later

 

That pretty much covers day 3

I will absotively hit WJ for Mongolian. 

How do you turn pasta into stir fry in the MDR?

Another favorite dish!

 

Skip the pasta and the sauce.

Peppers, onions, garlic.

Rice should be available, ask for soy sauce

Okay, thank you. I have the email from RC confirming our 6:00 reservation.

Continuing to enjoy your review . 

I recognise the HD’s face from the Top Tier photos, please could you remind of his name. Is it Peter Perchutnic or something like that? I could delve into my past cruises memorabilia but would take me forever , I know we have had him as HD before but cannot remember which ship. 

Thank you.

I'm curious what you've found out about the MTD at 6pm.  I also reserved all days at 6pm, except day 4 is 6:30 for Oct 13 sailing on Harmony.  The reservations show up on the Royal app, with correct reservations for each day.  But I got an email today saying I needed to make MTD reservations.  I checked the reservations on the computer and the 6pm reservations were not there.  Instead the earliest available was 8:30.  Of course I have already reserved all the shows knowing that our dinner reservations were at 6.  Thoughts?

Doctor Etsebeth saw us and confirmed Laura has Bronchitis. Luckily it's not contagious. Prescribed Dayquil, Prednisone, and a ZPack.  $182 all in. Unfortunately, they were out of Prednisone pills, so they gave her liquid.  It's really nasty stuff. 

 

UGH 😳  If bacterial (probably not, therefore Z pack is pointless) why would it not be contagious? Anyway, I hope she feels better soon.

Are you sailing soon?

i’m wondering if I can get a 6pm  for MTD in March. And how early I could request it from rci dining. 

I don't know if you have to wait till you’re onboard, but it looks like you didn’t have to.

A 6pm res would be perfect for my diabetic DH.

Well, this is really not any of my business but I won't let a little thing like that keep me from commenting. If Laura was put on an antibiotic then the doctor must suspect a bacterial infection. Contrary to your post, it IS contagious. If the doctor suspected a viral infection then it is STILL contagious but the antibiotics will do no good. If the bronchitis was not caused by a pathogen then it is not contagious and the antibiotics are completely unnecessary.

 

That is my story and I am sticking to it. 

Sorry... I really need to learn to finish reading a thread before commenting. 🙄

Same thing happened to me. Originally set my reservation time for 6:15pm. It shows up on the Royal app at 6:15 but I got the email too and when I checked my cruise planner MTD reverted back to "at your leisure" and then when I modify there are no times till 8pm. What the heck is going on?
