Oasis simulation 8/22/21

We’ve been in there multiple times and it is open. The coffee machine and cold water was set out.  Sometimes there was an attendant handing out  the water and  coffee. The  Diamond lounge concierge was there also. 

That’s surprising.  But, I guess, it makes sense for the concierge to be there in order to make reservations, etc.  Were there times when you could make your own coffee?

Hello! Thanks for all the great info thus far. Must be nice to be on such big ship and little people. We are sailing on 9/5.

 

So I emailed my TA today to switch MTD to early seating. Thinking we can’t do MTD  because of unvaccinated 2 yo. She then told me RCI said we can still do MTD 🤷🏻‍♀️. Would you be able to help confirm with MDR staffs if that’s true for 9/5 sailing? Would hate to sort out dinner time when on board. Always a long line.  Thx!!

@Baowen I’ve read the DL is not open during test cruise.  No concierge.  No breakfast set-up, no evening appetizers, etc.  I will assume that means no coffee machine as well.  Is that correct?  Thanks.

 

DL is staffed for coffee in the morning, but they are not setting out food for the simulation.  They did say they will resume food in the morning for revenue cruises.

Is anyone able to address cabin assignments and categories that were assigned?

 

Wife and I will be on the 9.17 Liberty sailing and haven’t yet heard anything about our cabin assignment.

We are invited also, really would like to meet you.  If you hadn’t started the thread about entering for the Simulation we would not be here!

It was so nice to meet you.  We were impressed with the view and service  from the  staff was amazing!!  Hope we get to see you again soon on another cruise

It seems like everyone got a balcony cabin.

Are there long lines for MTD?  My. Planner won't let me make reservations.   I'm on the 10/17 sailing.

Definitely not an issue but you will have plenty of time to reserve dining on the app

Question for anyone on the sim cruise....Which deck/where is the accessible seating in the Theater for Cats? My DH is in a wheelchair and just thought of this as I looked at your Compass posts. We will be on the Oct 24th sail. Thanks for taking us all along for the sailing! Glad you are having a great time. 😎

Do passengers returning to the US still have to have a negative covid test in order to enter the country?

On a round trip from the same US port, no. We have not had any revenue repos in the COVID era.

Vaccinated - Deck 4.  Unvaccinated - Deck 5.

I posted in another thread - the lift on the stage broke yesterday.  They were trying to fix it but are unable to at the moment.  They should have it repaired before the next sailing.

How has the air temp been on the ship?  Too cold in venues, too warm,  just right?  Wondering if I should pack slacks and a sweater for the evening, or just stick to capris and short sleeves for my Sept 12th cruise?

We are at sea today. The pool deck is VERY windy but was still able to hang out there. The pool capacity is set at 9. It’s 86 degrees and humid.   We ate at playmakers and wow the food is very good. The kitchen was slow but definitely worth the wait. The ship is feeling very empty and missing that party vibe. We went to Blaze last night for the stand up comedy and I would advise getting there early to avoid the seats in the back with a pole blocking their view. It was really annoying to sit through a whole show without actually seeing the comedian. I did see him later at the black jack table though. The Diamond lounge is open with the coffee machines going but there is staff there to run the machine. 

 

 

While you were at Playmakers, did you notice if they allowed anyone to sit at the bar?

FYI:  Got e-mail yesterday, that the Sept. 5 sail arrives in Port Canaveral at 2PM as opposed to the original 1PM.  I guess, this makes up for leaving Bayonne 2 hours later.

We made dinner reservations on the 9/12 cruise for dinner at the Solarium Bistro.

How did you make dinner reservations for 9/12 cruise.  We will be on that cruise too and there is nothing on the app or the cruise planner?

Same for us on the 10/17 cruise.  It was on the planner previously but I waited to see what times the shows were on the test cruise and now it's gone.
