  1. We got off oasis yesterday. They put the hand sanitizer on you right before u go on Escalator when you get on the ship. They have always done this even before the virus. You can not see that from the balcony
  2. I can say for an oasis class I think it’s a total waste of money. Boarding is so quick on these ships. From the parking garage in Miami on ship in 15 min tops at 11:15 in the morning. I take a small rolling bag that I don’t even consider to be lugging around. One lunch in dining room is no big deal. We go to park cafe and enjoy salad bar with roast beef sandwiches with very few people. Cabins open at 1, so after lunch u can take your bag to room and get your room key then. I buy one internet which cost $11.99 a day for VOOM and surf. We share it. So no need for more than one internet. Show seats r not a big deal, have to show up early either way. They give you one time for the whole week for flow rider or other stuff. Of course it’s not a time u would go. We walked off ship with our luggage all 3 times so fast again. Key does nothing for getting off at ports on Oasis because non are tender ports. Just another way for royal to make money. And you have to buy on for every person in cabin. That’s crazy. $17-23 a day pp. so$238 dollars at the cheapest for 2 people for the week
  3. Time doesn’t matter to anyone. They do not go by time. Not sure what ship u r on but if it is oasis class u do not need key at all. Everyone is on and off ship so quick. Key is not worth it for anything.
  4. Yes that is odd. Usually a good 90 days. We are leaving on Oasis this Sunday, I think ours was up over 100 days out.
  5. On all of my oasis class ships we find starboard side the side facing land or dock most of the time. It does matter to us. We prefer seeing the dock
  6. I got the deluxe alcohol package at $18. For my oasis cruise next week and our freedom cruise in June. Royals big mistake package
  7. No, the cup has a chip on the bottom that allows it to work.
  8. Nope the one that does the The southern Caribbean on freedom has always been five ports not six. I have been on it and scheduled again for June. We just got notified of the change to 6 ports today.
  9. One is still by the El Loco Fresh, another out by pool
  10. We always buy insurance, one time we didn’t and my son ended up with massive abdominal pain and had to go to hospital in Puerto Rico. We were able to continue cruise but between cruise Drs and hospital it was over $3000. Our medical insurance From home did cover it all though. Long story short he had a non functioning kidney and had it removed when we got home. He is 17 now and fine with one kidney.
  11. I have been on breeze 3 times. Our favorite carnival ship. I dislike Vista class. Food options on carnival are awesome. I love all the free options. I have been on Freedom and loved her, going on her again in June. I have been on all oasis class ships. Going back on Oasis in a few weeks. You would love freedom and Harmony. They do not feel huge and overwhelming. The flow is easier than carnival. Skip Carnival and try Royal. You will not be disappointed in either ship.
  12. It will be fine. Don’t open another post on this. There are enough. Close this up
  13. Playmakers on Oasis class are not bad, but not free. Guys is good and free
  14. I had reserved a 6:30 time slot as well. When our neighbors came back a few weeks ago they said that it didn’t open till 6:45 pm. Didn’t seat anyone before so that’s when I changed to early seating.
  15. Be aware that MTD doesn’t open till 6:45 now. go on non reservation side, for a large party it may take a little time but u should be fine
  16. I just changed a few weeks ago. Call and try to change it. Or when u get on board they can probably accommodate you. We usually go around 6 as well, but with the new time it would cut it close for the 8:30 shows. We like to get to shows around 25 min early
  17. They changed the times for My Time on Oasis. They do not even open MTD till 6:45. Way to late to get to the 8:30 shows. I had to change to early traditional for 5:30-5:45. That’s more like their time dining now
  18. Right when u board the ship go to a specialty restaurant and make the reservations. You should not have any issues if you do it right when u board.
  19. I never go to buffet throughout cruise. Park cafe, BBQ, El loco fresh, and solarium are available on Oasis. Nice and quiet on first day.
  20. No drink cards are not in planner. Usually day 4 of cruise
