John,

can you let us know the check In experience, and if they have expedited in Miami, with the facial recognition system?  We travel with Nexus cards, which speeds things up, but our experience in Port Canaveral in October for Harmony , had the new means of speeding through check in.  Thanks and safe , enjoyable travels.

Nexus/Global entry no longer in use in Miami.  We’ve sailed from the new Miami terminal 3 times and each time the facial recognition has not been operating.  Most recently 3 weeks ago.  That being said it is still a very quick process both for boarding and disembarking.

I have a couple of personal challenges for this cruise.

 

The first is to verify if I can access the Aqua Show via the deck 7 aft hallway

 

The second is to see if I can keep track of my free casino drinks. I just made Prime in Casino Royale last month. 🎰

I guess I shouldn't call them free. More like pre paid😉

 

Another is to see if I can get permission to watch CATS rehearsal 

 

And the last is to enjoy all the new features and venues on the ship

 

If I can't do it all, we're back in November 😁

I was on the December 8th cruise and the Aqua 80s show was excellent. I saw it 3 times. I can confirm you can access the show from Deck 7.  I watched done show from the Deck 7 port side and you could watch the technicians "suiting up" the aerial acrobats with their harnesses.

 

One Sky was actually called One Sky Preview, and it was a disjointed work in progress.

Forgot about the patties.  I may need to venture off the reservation so to speak. 

 

What's the wreather forcast next week in the GWN🥶🥶

 

Head out the gate, walking through to the right to find the downtown courtyard with the defunct fountain called Water Square.  Once there, look left to find a very busy locals favorite meat patty bakery called "Spicey Nice".  It's delicious!  And big generous portion.  

 

Enjoy your cruise, John and Laura, and as usual thanks for taking us along!  🙂

LOL!!  I had that one on deck 11 once.  It was very convenient to popping into the former CL, then DL, now...? for early morning coffee.  🙂  Was a nice cabin.

Have a wonderful trip. We are looking forward to our first time on an Oasis class on Feb 9th! Also it will be our first time in a JS. My wife and I particularly enjoy the shows. I think you commented on another thread I posted on. I have a reservation for the first night headliner show but I have heard that there may be different  headliner acts through the week and the cruise planner will not let me reserve more than one headliner show. I would appreciate it if you could comment if the headliner shows are different each night they have them and if you attend them how difficult it is to get a seat without a reservation.  Thanks again!

My wife and I just got off Oasis - Eastern Caribbean (1/5-12/20) and there were 2 different headliner shows.  On Sunday, Ronn Lucas offered twice @ 8:30 & 10:30 and then a different headliner, Finis Henderson offered multiple times on Wednesday & Thursday.  You can book second offering onboard.  Both were very entertaining.  Enjoy!

Just got off Oasis (1-5-12/20). Boarding process very quick, but the vehicle traffic around terminal is very, very slow.  Facial recognition was operating upon return - - very quick.  Biggest delay was moving crowds outside between terminal building and curb.

thanks for the posts..sailing with Mario is cool......will you be eating at the BBQ? it's on my list in case the CK gets redundant-which it can, unless the chef makes us special dishes not on the menu 😉 .  I'm sure Andy will stop in....hope your glowing review will nudge him to book 12/13/20 .....thanks for taking me along..vicariously

Your cruise compass for CK use shows Grand Suites and above...but no mention of Pinnies.  Misprint?

I noticed the Love and Marriage show is listed as 3 pm in the AFTERNOON on a sea day.  I have only ever seen it held late at night after a show in the theatre around 10 or 11 pm.  Is this a new thing RCCL is doing?
