Have we established how that space will be used at night without Howl? I can't remember if that's something we know or not. Of course, some nights there will be comedy shows, etc.

Outstanding! We saw the pool chair policies being enforced on Oasis a few weeks ago as well, and thoughts the pool attendants did an outstanding job. Hopefully this is the beginning off a new trend...

Princess loyal does a royal, oasis may 2-16, 2016

That's exactly what I wound up doing. Unfortunately, it was a fairly long walk back to the beach pool area and on one of my treks, about half of the way back, a gust of wind kicked up and swept away...

I've always felt that the one big thing RCI is missing is the outdoor grill by the pool that every other cruise line I've sailed on has, and I've never understood why RCI never thought to include...

Would it surprise you to learn that I'm smack dab in the middle of that age range they're looking to market to? ;)

I've actaully been terribly disappointed in RCI's marketing the past few years (compared to the good ol' days of Lust for Life :p) and think that the marketing review is warranted. They can do much...

Just to add a quick substantive comment / suggestion about the policy: I asked DW whether she noticed any dishes / plates littering the hallway on our Oasis cruise a couple of week ago. I previously...

Norwegian Cruise Line Bans Food Outside of Dining Areas

Well maybe NCL and Princess should do a better job of collecting dishes. I don't recall seeing ANY on Oasis last week... Or anything worse than a scattered dish here or there on my most recent...

Norwegian Cruise Line Bans Food Outside of Dining Areas

If you've actually been on 122 cruises -- and I have no reason to doubt that you have -- then you surely know how much of an outlier it is to have a corridor overflowing with plates and garbage,...

So you don't see the irony that NCL ships are emblazoned with "Freestyle Cruising" but they will control where and when you can carry your food? ...a restriction that is not imposed by any other...

Not very "Freestyle," huh?

I think that's the greatest irony of this new rule. No reports as of yet of NCL removing the now ironic "Freestyle Cruising" moniker from the sides of its ships...
