Recommended Posts

Welcome back to another self deprecating voyage with Laura and I. 

Who am I kidding, it's mostly me and my camera(s)

 

Quick explanation on the title, it's not what you think.

Monday night is the CFP Championship Game, and Laura's beloved Georgia Bulldawgs aren't included.😢

The two combatants are the LSU Tigers and the Clemson Tigers, AKA cats.🐅

 

Nevermind, this is about the beloved musical and the new shortened version.

Now the show isn't until day 5, so you can bail late in the week if you care to.

 

Here is a link to last year's voyage if you want to catch up.

 

See you on the ship

Here is our route, simple western run out of Miami

Driving to Miami tomorrow morning, will park at the terminal

Here is a little blurb on Oasis from my former TA's web site. I don't think it's very accurate

We are on deck 6 near the aft elevators, standard balcony, great location

Cabin should look like this

Just a little housekeeping to begin with.

Be mindful when quoting posts with pictures. 

If it's not relevant to your comment, try and delete them, it will make the picture police happy.

I like to use the thank you button instead of creating a post that just says thanks

It doesn't mean I'm not acknowledging your kind words

I will try and answer all the questions I can, but I need to be mindful of spending time with the lovely LaLa

Feel free to answer any questions that others pose. sometimes I'm slow or occupied. See above

If you don't like the musical CATS, that's fine, it's not for everyone. Just try and keep any blatant negativity to yourself please

I really don't want this to go off the rails, and force the admins to delete stuff

and like I said earlier, most of the CATS discussion won't happen until late in the voyage.

 

anyway, have fun

Have a wonderful trip. We are looking forward to our first time on an Oasis class on Feb 9th! Also it will be our first time in a JS. My wife and I particularly enjoy the shows. I think you commented on another thread I posted on. I have a reservation for the first night headliner show but I have heard that there may be different  headliner acts through the week and the cruise planner will not let me reserve more than one headliner show. I would appreciate it if you could comment if the headliner shows are different each night they have them and if you attend them how difficult it is to get a seat without a reservation.  Thanks again!

I’m on board, figuratively.  
 

I think I see some Jamaican Patties in your future and some warm weather photos for the rest of us stuck in the cold.

 I am with Laura, our Bulldogs came up short. So very close. I grew up in Louisiana though, so Geaux Tigers of the purple and gold variety. On a side note,  you know John, come to think of it, I did not see a single " service" animal on our Dec 15 Oasis sailing. Interesting.

How are you getting to Miami? The parking garage was packed for the Dec 1 sailing. Glad we arrived early and the only spots available were the top deck. Enjoy the cruise.

 

Driving down, hope to get there by 11am. I guess worst case is park in another garage. last time to Miami we did a rental since we were there two weeks

I didn't make a reservation for the headliner, as a Pin, we really don't have to.  I did make them for all the other shows.

 

This is the Headliner description from my Cruise Planner

With the exception of long repo's, I rarely see more than one act as headliner

 

Our March TA on Allure doesn't even list one

Speaking of shows, here is my proposed schedule for next week. 

 

Aqua 80's at 8:30 tomorrow night. Always a good idea to get it early in case there are weather issues

Since I lived the 80's, I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing this one.

One Sky @ 8:30 Monday night, conflicts with CFP game🏈

One Sky is the Royal Production show in the Opal Theater. This may be one and done for me, but I'll give it a chance

Oh, and here are the rules for the Opel Theater

Frozen in Time @ 8:30 on Tuesday. This is the ice show in Studio B 

I've always enjoyed this show, I understand the sand artist is still included. I hope it's the Princess and the Pea

Looking forward to your review.  We board in 29 days for a b2b.  Can barely wait.

Would love to cruise as much as you do.  Too far away to drive, flying very expensive.  Will just enjoy what we can afford.

Show Schedule cont..

 

Stand up comedy @ 9pm on Wednesday

I often try and sit up front, I don't think Laura is a fan of that

 

Apparently I did schedule the Headliner, 7:15 pm on Thursday 

This may cut into dinner, questionable if we go

 

CATS @ 9:30pm on Friday. I think this is the first show

There should be a matinee on Saturday afternoon and an evening show on Saturday as well

I'm also thinking about Insider's View if I can get it for a discount.

I doubt I'll pay $59

If you do the Insider's View would love your thoughts as I am considering it  for us.

I saw the movie  Cats and was one of the very few who liked it. I found it strangely enjoyable and weird in a good way😊
