Recommended Posts

Currently hanging out in DL charging my phone and chatting with you all

 

Look for 110V outlets behind sofa near coffee machine

Pretty empty when no alcohol served

Cookies and sandwiches

Espresso machine actually has a decaf setting

Jandi Kim in DL. This may be her first week.

Jandi was in the DL the week of Christmas...or at least her name was on our letter.

John:

How has the weather been? How are the winds? I have been following a few threads since Christmas and most have stated winds and cooler temps. We will be on Western cruise next week. 

 

Thanks! 

 

Breezy and warm. A liitle hazy earlier today

Speaking of old, they have re opened the old DL balcony overlooking the Promenade.  Its been closed the last 5 years

Coffee machines look new and updated

 

Close up of the menu. MWF 50000S

SL still has an older one, but you can adjust strength and make doubles

 

DL drink menu is slightly different than SL

What is the DLBalcony? Open to all or just special guests. If open to all how do you get there?

 

Ooen to all. Oasis DL used to be on deck 6 prior to 2014 drydock. The old space became cabins and this area was sealed off.

 

Get to it via foward starboard elevator lobby.

It has been so long so long since I have seen this area.  Was the lounge to the left where it is now a wall, and that's where the seating was?  If so, that space in now taken by inside rooms at the last dry dock 5 years ago.  Right?

Correct, good memory.  I always thought those inside cabins should have been Promenade balcony cabins

 

Harmony and Symphony made this a public space as I recall.

 

Here is the entrance from the elevator lobby

There is also a viewing area on the port side,  but no seating

They are now out of CLs or just ones that are converted to SLs?

 

From what I understand from poster currently on Grandeur..CL was not converted.  They simply stuck a sign outside the door of the CL that read "Suites and Pinnacles only".  The DL concierge was making sure D+ were given the boot.  

 

I have received two different emails for my upcoming Vision cruise out of PR.  One for the 18th, and another one for the 25th sailing...expecting to get another one for my 2/1 sailing.  It states that indeed D+ are kicked out, but they WILL give us one coffee voucher per day to use to make up for it.  Yipppeeeeee!!   😵😠

Headed over to casino for another Cape Codder

 

Freebie Tally so far:

Suite Lounge - one double cappuccino 

Top Tier - rum punch

Casino  - two Cape Codders ( one Grey Goose and one Titos) 

CK - one Amstel

Thinking its time for Stoli Elite

 

I did get Laura a bottle of B&B in the casino for later

Top Tier is really just  C&A event

 

 

Interesting.  Wonder why not doing it at the Aqua Theater any longer?  On Harmony last month, was an event for all cruisers...not just C&A.  What has become of the upper tier event I wonder?

As Suzi said, it varies by sailing

 

All my upcoming trips are on ships with an SL anyway

D+ members do not have access to the CL when the numbers of D+ are high on a particular ship/sailing. D+ could have access one sailing but not the next as numbers of D+ onboard change. 

 

 

Define "high".

The skating demo was nice

 

Not very well attended, though

BTW, it looks like DL has around 60 seats.

 

Lots of open area in the middle

And why do DL's have computers, but not SL's🤔

Does the hush party do anything like music changes depending on what part of the floor you are on?  

 

Any outdoor deck party dancing late at night or converting the ice rink into dance club?  Thanks.

I looks like the casino is open 24 hours (slots) on sea days.  Wonder of that means the casino bar is open 24 hours?

On other ships, you manually switch from one set of songs to another
