Chris Wong Vlogs... day #9?

Recommended Posts

Maybe it’s just “operator error” but I haven’t been able to find Chris’ day 9 vlog from Oasis. I know he said he is having to leave the ship in a few more days, but I’m wondering why he isn’t posting.  Anyone?

Could be internet issues.  I'm wondering where he will leave the ship.  No airport at Coco Cay so unless they pull into a port with an international airport or way to get to one, he may be on longer than he thinks.  I've watched most of his vlogs this week.

IIRC, he said his ship (Oasis OTS) is sailing to Miami in day 8 vlog and he will get his flight detail on day 9. Maybe he needs to take care a lot of stuff in order to leave the ship?

Oasis is still at Anchor.

I was wondering if he had been silenced by the powers to be.

At the end of the Day 8 vlog while he is recording the sunset he says it will be his "last sunset onboard."  I thought it an odd thing to say when at the beginning he said it was 50-50 whether or not he'd be going back to the UK.

In another (or maybe even day 8 ) vlog, I thought he mentioned Oasis going to Miami.  Again I thought that odd.  Why would Miami allow them to dock when they are not allowing cruise ships to dock? Maybe after the 14 day self isolation with no cases they would allow it?  I don't know.  I don't think anyone does.

It's such a dynamic situation, it's tough to even speculate.  I would lay 99.9% odds it's not because RCI is "silencing' him.  Navigating the entry and transit requirements for different countries with differing nationalities can be intense at this moment, and is changing rapidly.  The few flights that do exist are also quickly running out.  My bigger concern for Chris (and I too have subscribed to my first Youtube channel---his) is whether he will be paid beyond his contract if he is 'stuck' on the ship after that expires.  It doesn't seem like he is too concerned about it...and I have to admit...If I had to spend 30 days in quarantine, doing it on a fairly empty Oasis-class ship in the Bahamas with almost perfect weather would be where I'd want to do it!

I feel for him and the crew. When he didn’t post I really got worried. And, like an earlier poster said, I too, thought it odd that he said he was watching his last sunset while yet knowing he still had a few days left. I hope he is ok!

Well the plot thickens.
Oasis is on the move headed NW. AIS says Stirrup cay.

Isn’t Miami just an overnight trip from CoCo Cay? I bet the ship goes to Miami but would be harder to catch a flight home, even if only to U.K. However flights are still going.

My son, who was on the Liberty as an a Entertainer until November, had a friend from his contract sign on a week ago Sunday (3/15).  He was supposed to be sent home yesterday (3/22) but as they got to Galveston found out he wasn’t because he lives in Ireland.

Twizzler, thank you so much for your rapid reply on the video. I met Chris when he was on the Mariner and have tried to follow him all along.  I miss cruising and your amazing photos to keep me informed. I am not sure if I will be sailing on my seven booked cruises, but will keep my fingers crossed.  Thank you again for your help.

if you like his vlogs, don't forget to give him a thumbs up and share his channel with other. Don't think he gets a whole lot from Youtube but little bit helps.

What has happened to his vlogs now?  He was posting from home, (England) about life in isolation.  He started a series "ask me anything about working on a cruise ship" and did several vlogs where he answered numerous questions.

Now I can't find any of those newer videos.  When I do a search for his vlogs, the newest one that shows up is when he leaves and flies home. 

Has he been shut down?  Is he sick?  I'm not a twitter follower or any other social media.  Has anyone heard anything?  Is he ok?

When someone asked him about his vlogs on Instagram, he replied with 

"Experimenting with my channel right now. New cruise vlogs coming soon!".

I did notice after his day 2 or 3 ask me anything he had said there was 51 people with covid 19 on oasis. This was not info in the public. After he said that one day later  all the videos were removed. I bet Rccl said something to him.
