  1. We were on the week of 5/20 and they showed Marvel's Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, Jumanji. There may have been others we missed. They showed them in the aquatheater the second half of the week. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  2. We leave tomorrow and still don't know what we are doing in st. Maarten. DH is leary about taxis and being scammed due to previous experience (elsewhere). All I personally really care to do is go to Maho and watch a few planes and head back. So, what's the best advice on taking a taxi and what is the best time to go to Maho. What time should we grab a cab back to Port (leaving at 5). Are cabs plentiful at Maho? Thanks for any reassurance you can offer. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  3. Did you carry your bags off or did you wait and grab them when your number was called? We are trying to figure out our quickest and most efficient way off.
  4. I've lived right on the gulf coast for over 30 years so I'm well aware of how hurricane season works. Tropical weather doesn't have to start on the African coast to be a threat. What I wasn't familiar with is how cruises avoid the weather when possible and what determined cancellation. The prediction I saw for the coming weather was just that. However, that is what prompted this post so I could be as prepared as possible cruise protocols-wise. Thank you to those who actually answered the question.

  5. I thought I saw it one one of my weather pages but just now looking back now I'm not seeing it right off. It's not the first I've seen about the possibility though. But it IS still 10+ days out. I'd still like information on protocols with this situation. It would just suck to go on the cruise and have it be raining and rocking the whole time. Eta: always a chance you take by going on a boat, I know. But there's a difference when you know ahead of time. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  6. So, we are on Oasis out of Port Canaveral for eastern Caribbean on 5/20-5/27. There is a very real possibility there will be a tropical storm/hurricane coming through the area 5/22-25. At what point does the cruise line make the call to cancel? Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  7. Ok. So not an option to go to Mullet or Simpson bay then. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  8. Someone who has been there recently, can you tell me more about the water taxi as far as cost and where they go? Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  9. Following. We board in two weeks! Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  10. All very helpful replies, thank you! Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  11. There, I admit it. I do not have a great knowledge of how technology works. I use my phone to call, text, as a camera, and light internet/social media use. Period. I'm not going to pay for an internet package on board (that's what Voom is right?). I know that my phone will need to be in airplane mode and that it's sole use on board is as a camera and clock. But, in Port, if there is Wi-Fi, would I be able to access it? would roaming charges factor in? Should I leave it in airplane mode in Port? Probably questions to ask my provider (Verizon), but thought I'd ask here where no one knows me [emoji3]. I'll be on Oasis w/eastern itinerary. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  12. Good to know! Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  13. No we are close enough to drive. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  14. Thanks, will keep this in mind. Walking right off with our bags is still an option on Oasis right? Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  15. On our last (and only) cruise, we carried our bags and walked right off. This time we may or may not have to let them get our bags the night before. It will come down to how many bags my sis has and if we can carry our and hers (she had mobility issues). Ideally we would like to walk right off but if not, can someone briefly go over how it works? I know we leave our bags in hall the night before but what happens the next morning? We will be in Oasis, thanks. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  16. Tell me if I have this right. We reserve FNDR ahead of time. We find out when we get there (on board or at check in?)where they assigned us. Our job immedietely upon boarding is to go to our restaurant of choice (if different) and make the reservation there. Right? Are there any additional fees to expect? We are deciding between Giovanni's and 150 CP. One of us has the soda package. Is this able to be used in a specialty restaurant? MDR- we are a party of 3 with MTD. Is it possible to get our own table or is dining with others going to be the only option? Should we make this known at boarding or just when we show up to eat? Which decks are specific to MTD? Does lunch in MDR require reservations? Misc. - Where are the locations for getting towels for loungers/beach? On Enchantment, the solarium was very hot bc it was closed in. I see Oasis is not closed in but is it noticeably warmer or nice and breezy? Thanks! Just trying to get my final ponderings in order! Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  17. I wondered if it could have been medical too. Maybe the time to turn around to dock would have taken too long, or longer than necessary anyway. Hopefully they are ok. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  18. Noro...just the word makes me shudder. Hoping for a good healthy cruise next month! I planned on bringing a travel Lysol to spray cabin down with but will that even kill noro? I've read about the certain hand wipes/sanitizer that will and plan on bringing those too. Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
  19. I pulled up the webcam today per usual on Sundays (sailing in 28 days!). I noticed she's facing the opposite direction. Is there a reason for this? I naturally assume it was weather/sea related but curious to know what else would determine this. Thanks! Sent from my XT1585 using Forums mobile app
