I’m currently on the Oasis. To make HDMI work: 

 

First, plug in your cable and turn on the device (I’m using my Macbook for Netflix). On the bottom TV is one button. It turns the TV on and off, but also does other things. If you press it, a menu appears on screen. Cycle by pressing the button to “sources”. Once there, do a long press. HDMI will be selected. 
 

I guess this should work with your Fire TV as well. 

 

Thank you for this! There should be a sticky for tips like this.

Sauvignon Blanc back on the happy hour list??  Wasn't on the list on Symphony.  Not sure if that was fleet wide but my wife will be happy.

 

Just in the SL...not in the DL.

You'll have to ask RCI that question. 

 

I thought you knew.

Not sure, place is empty. Nice and quiet. Same with SL so far. Chef made us stir fry tonight. It was not as good as I would have hoped. 

 

One downside here is they did not add the stir fry stations to WJ like Harmony and Symphony 

 

MDR tomorrow night is Asian pork taco's and rack of lamb👍

 

Had stir fry in the WJ on Mariner last week.  Wonderful!!  🙂 I used to love the live stations in the WJ on Oasis.  Not enough pax taking advantage of it?

I take a leisurely right at the fountain and walk to the next street.  You will find Tastee Patties there.  The same parties that the vendor in the port sells.  Beef patties are about $1.45 american.

 

Hmmm...have to check that out as well.  Sure did like our meat patties at Spicey Nice though!  😘

Just off Oasis on 1/12/20 and enjoyed the shortened version of Cats.  The Growl Tiger song was cut from the show.

Guess I didnt stick around long enough to know that song for the original version

Studio B on day 5 has the RED nightclub party.

 

BTW, does anyone here know why they named the ice rink venue Studio B?

 

Yes! That was what they called it. It was on day 7 on the Jan 5 sailing though.

Gots to be over a thousand P's by now.  How many are still cruising is an unknown.  In our past 3 cruises alone, we have seen 14 couples make Pinnacle.

Oasis never really had them, just portable ones.

 

Harmony and Symphony have permanent ones

I wish you could actually delete a post.

 

You've got about 20 minutes to edit, and while you cannot delete the post entirely, you can delete all the content.

Is this a riddle or are you asking us? Because I'd really like to know as well.

Mine as well, that is an easy 10-15 minute cut that is no longer in any of the Staged productions.

 

So if you remove the intermission and take out Growltiger, you lose the 35(ish) minutes from the show.

 

Whichever way, I will wait until Friday to start our CATS discussion.

Oh, I'm so excited about this! I always LOVE your reviews. And, the occasional appearance of sweet Bella makes it even better.

Busy day in Labadee, but stayed on ship.

 

Drinks came in 3's it seems

3 Heineken at lunch

3 Cape Codders at Happy hour/ dinner

Triple shot Baileys for the 7pm show

 

Did the 75 minute perfect day massage with Gina. Very nice

 

Oasis does have a lovely waiting area for the Spa. I was only person there😁

Lunch in CK was spectacular.  3rd menu in 3 days. Glad to see she didn't drop all the variety.

No crowd at all

20200114_224922.thumb.jpg.e4a39d2c3421c47619a7319c51fe7586.jpg

 

I guess everyone went to Labadee

20200114_224943.thumb.jpg.9a7626928b315664a3630535ab87deee.jpg

 

Today was grilled prawn starter, carmelized scallips with risotto main, and almond basket mousse for dessert.

I may try and get a full set of lunch menus and post them.

Went to 7pm One Sky. It was odd. Some of the numbers reminded me of Flight, they kept the plane from Fly With Me Show, and had one number where they were in lingerie, in bed, and then started doing aerials.

I spent most of show trying to guess which CATS roll the performers would do in a few days.🤔🐱

20200114_225845.thumb.jpg.a23b134f625c0d5d1ab328a0c5bf16ad.jpg

 

Also saw a short set with Matt Yee. We'll have to go back

 

Off to Aqua Theater for LA vation concert

Started up on deck 7, to windy

20200114_225734.thumb.jpg.1c06d6a7f186004cbda955c5a04a4196.jpg

 

20200114_225713.thumb.jpg.428ee4c94ab53129dde653550c9f27e2.jpg

 

Moved down to Boadwalk for a bit.

20200114_225651.thumb.jpg.4139b8e6b6ee4b1d05fbcb98744ea568.jpg

 

Heard Bloody Sunday, then left. Bono had a bum leg, so he just chair danced. Very odd

 

Ended evening with Caribbean party on Promenade and a slice or two from Sorrento. 

Very good

Forgot to add that Coastal Kitchen has been both fabulous and under utilized. Its never more than half full. Suite Lounge is the same.

 

The staff is bending over backwards to get us to come back. Custom stir fry on Monday, they brought us lamb tonight so we didn't go to MDR, etc...

They even made Laura blueberry pie.

A+ for effort

B- for execution

20200114_182323.thumb.jpg.a0850b61fdbf5b260141da7e2cf07e19.jpg

 

BTW, as with most Oasis ships, MTD doesnt start until after 6:30,  so CK is just convenient.

Follow up to the question on handicap seating. 

 

Deck 5 Opal Theater also uses back row for scooter parking and companion seating.

Music Hall is about 75% fully accessible.  The other parts require a couple of steps
