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

 

The same Matt Yee my wife and I saw ~11 years ago on Mariner of the Seas on a redirected west coast trip north vs south due to the swine flu outbreak in Mexico?  He did Billy Joel schtick in the Piano Lounge and was absolutely awesome.  Ironically, we were back on RCL on Oasis 12/29 for our first cruise since having kids and missed him.  Would have been amazing to see him again.

I am keeping all the compasses so far. 

Does anyone want me to scan and post them later.

 

It may not be until the week after next. We sail Mariner on Monday for 4 days

For those curious about the under bed power outlet, here it is. It should be on the same side as the phone.

There are three US outlets on the desk, and one under it. There is also one Euro outlet under the desk. 

 

There are also several US outlets up in the deck 12 card room. Good place to power up a laptop and get a nice view.

I think I posted this pick earlier

I'm really hoping to get off the ship, but knee is not cooperative.  Luckily I packed a brace.

I would really appreciate you scanning them and posting them. It would be very helpful in planning as I have never been on an Oasis Class ship and we are on the Oasis with the same itinerary as you in February.

Sorry you are having knee issues. It must be difficult maneuvering around such a large ship.

 We are on the February 9th sailing. Which are you on?

If you google 'cruise compass oasis of the seas 2019' (can't post link here) you will find a Compass from a month ago.

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

 

Fingers crossed it's like that in April

I'm averaging a little over 7000 steps, but since I shuffle, that really isnt a lot

Coastal Kitchen has 86 seats. They can move a lot of them around to accommodate large parties, but its usually 2 - 4 at a table

Chef's Table is back to placing all the wine glasses out during the day. They had stopped that last spring due to people taking them.

Since the CK/SL on Oasis was created from the old VCL, it retains the original bar layout.  They changed the design on the new builds, Harmony and Symphony to place it where Chef's Table is above.

You get a lot of opinions on the two layouts, I really don't care one way the other.  They both have advantages and disadvantages.

I would think in early April shouldn’t be an issue. Spring Break time so a lot of high levels avoid and fares tend to be more.

That's what my wife and I were hoping for ... (did i just post that)? 😄 

I'm hoping to have the opportunity to meet John on one of his cruises...John you wife is a knitter? 

 

I especially welcome it in the lounge .... seems like servers tend to ignore us and cater to others on a regular basis. IMO
