  1. A meal taking at least 1.5 hours is called "Dining", a very special event and not readily available or possible in this day and age.. "Eating" is what you do every day and is usually accomplished while driving, watching a sporting event or television, yelling at the kids, etc. My most unfavorable observation is that RCI has chosen to encourage and accommodate those who choose to "eat" in the MDR verses the dining experience they once provided decades ago when we began cruising.
  2. Broadway shows on Oasis ships are a draw, we have seen them all and "Cats" was by far the least attended, especially after intermission. "Grease" on Harmony was probably our next least liked show but we found the water show and ice show on Harmony to be dark and not as good as the shows on the other ships. In addition Harmony had this weird guy(?) spinning in a dress in the stage show and even the water show. Really strange. Does Harmony still have this act as part of their current shows?
  3. We have always used the Avis Rental Car return and free shuttle to the ship from Pier 66 but just discovered that Pier 66 is closed for renovation. Where is the closest Avis Return with Port shuttle now?
  4. Just sailed on Oasis for New Years and what you say is correct. Oasis will return to Finland next fall for an extended required dry-dock where it will be "Amped" and receive numerous upgrades. That's the good news. There were 6,497 passengers on board for New Years, with lots of children, making this ship feel crowded compared to the 3 previous times we cruised on her. Now if you are from New York, think of being trapped with nearly 6,500 of your fellow neighbors for more than a week. Sounds like a lot of fun to me. It's a great ship!
  5. There could be a solution to this question and it would not be that difficult, would cost nothing to RCCL and would be very telling. Every ship we have been on has a multi deck MDR. Simply designate one deck as the "dress code REQUIRED and Enforced" deck, seating by request. My guess is that that deck would fill up very quickly and allow those who enjoy the formal experience to do so with like minded guests. It is such a simple solution I cannot believe no one has considered doing it. If it fails to attract enough patronage it would be very easy to reverse, however I would be willing to bet that there would be such a success that RCCL would probably want to have an up-charge to dine there.
  6. About to sail on Oasis for New Years and after reading the reviews for "Cats" I believe asking if they will change out the broadway show during drydock is wishful thinking.
