WoW Band

Recommended Posts

Someone currently on Oasis posted a picture of his “WoW Band”.

So, Biker19 may be wrong about “WoW Bands” not being available on Oasis.image.thumb.jpeg.7b524640d59d2b6c43f0f43d3da5b359.jpeg

Context matters when one is in CC - look at the date of my post. Until last week, my statement was true.

My call to RC I just made, 11/25/2019, got the response of “ No”.

 

Whomever you spoke with apparently didn't know about the locks being upgraded during this most recent Drydock. Wow Bands and unlocking doors through the app are now supported on Oasis.

From a broader perspective, which ships  CURRENTLY have WOW bands?

All Quantum class ships, Harmony, Symphony and now Oasis (and pretty likely Allure after the refurb next spring).

I bet it would take too many calls to have one of the reps say “What’s a Wow band”

It wouldn’t surprise me that after inquiring with RC about the “WoW Bands” someone would tell me ..... “But, there is Karaoke”.

I just put a post on an app on my phone re: Oasis.  Someone on the ship stated Oasis DOES have them now.  However, my next question was:  Are they free for suite guests?  Does anyone have an answer to this?  I have read on other posts that the ships which DO have the WOW bands, suite guests get them free.

 

Can someone give me information on the WOW band?  I don't know anything about these as I knew they were not available on Oasis.  Now, apparently, they are so I'm wondering how they work.

 

TIA for any helpful information

WOW bands can be used for everything that the SeaPass card does, except getting off and on the ship.

So what is the advantage of having one of these?  I guess I just don't understand how this is better or more convenient than a SeaPass card

Some people either don't have or don't want to use pockets or don't want to use a lanyard.  The WOW band is also waterproof so can be worn in the pool.

Some of us big kids like them too.  I find them very useful when trying to get in our cabin when my hands are full.  As long as I can get my wrist near the RFID reader, the door is unlocked like dare I say it . . . magic.

I love using mine.  A simple movement of the arm and I'm in my cabin.  It's wonderful when you are carrying stuff.  Even when you are not, there is no fishing around for a card.  Easy peasy.

Don't know about full suites as we only have a JS, but Guest Services just told me that unlike Quantum Class, Harmony, and Symphony, Pinnacles do not get them free on Oasis. They were not sure why Oasis is different.

I have read that Grand Suite and above (on other ships) are free and waiting in your cabin.   We are in a Crown Loft suite so wondered if this applies on Oasis.

 

As this is new to Oasis, I'm sure I will get more info as time goes on.

Thanks to all who have given me feedback.

Can WOW bands be reused on different ships?

 

Some of them have your muster station printed on them.  Sometimes Guest Services will give you a new one, and sometimes they will tell you that they won't.

 

Some of them are plain, so can be reprogrammed without discussion.

Your WOW bands will be waiting for you in your cabin/on your cabin door.

We just received them in a JS on Anthem.  I was not expecting them.  A friend who cruises often tells me you just bring them with you on your next cruise and they will take them and give new ones back to you that are programmed for your current cruise.
