They were on the week before Christmas as well 

 

I googled them, and that makes sense now.

GodFamily of Symphony.  Apparently they get one free cruse a year. 

 

I haven't seen anything different on IG account I follow for Royal

My second double post since boarding ship. I blame it on the sketchy internet

Can you provide any info about handicap seating at shows ? I will be using a mobility scooter when on board ?

Thanks !

 

In the main theater they use the back row of deck 4 for most folks. Not sure about deck 5.

 

I did see a scooter parked at the front of the theater. You might be able to enter from deck 3 forward. 

 

In Studio B there are reserved areas in the back as well. Same with Aqua Theater.

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

I'll try and find out, but don't hold your breath🤣

 

In casino, slots open, bar closed. Im guessing it will open around 1pm when tables are open

USB stick was movies. Most kid friendly, even a sub folder for little ones.

The TV has a pop up when you insert the stick

I guess the same would happen if you plug something into HDMI port

But that is SL only

 

Better than nothing.  Not a big fan of the DL location anyway.

They have a good Insta-story showing the new Panoramic Suite.  Impressive.

I'd love to know if this is true. I brought my Fire TV on the Anthem and it worked great. I heard bringing a Samsung Remote to change inputs doesn't work on the Oasis anymore. Others have speculated there's an option on the TV menu to switch HDMI inputs.

I get that, but sometimes folks want to surf the net on an actual computer


Very true, but suite guests get free internet. Just wait till you see what Star Class gets.

I could not find any way to select input on the TV remote. I didnt look fir a manual switch. 

 

But like I said, it appears that the TV recognizes any new devices

If/when you see One Sky let us know what you think of it?

Kind of bummed that a crew member said it was crap😕 Also look forward to hearing what you are doing at Labadee.

FWIW, I paraphrased him😉

But 'crap' is how it came across

Just spoke with Lyli. 

Our welcome letter was wrong, Pinnacles do not get free room service. Definitely a suite perk only.

She will be fixing the letter going forward

How has the seas been on your sailing John?  Seas for us has been very rough and we did not dock into St John's yesterday.  We headed to St. Maarten and docked overnight instead.

 

Reading your review and following while on the Serenade!  Living Oasis through you.  

 

Lyli is a great concierge.  I believe Nadia was the DL concierge on Oasis previously?  Might be wrong but that name is familiar.

Coffee machine 101

 

Here is the SL coffee machine. WMF Presto

Cup warmer on the right is nice

20200114_073736.thumb.jpg.ce2768e6cb9cdf9e21bcbc0d8f17d544.jpg

 

This is the default view on the menu

20200114_073452.thumb.jpg.6c7ea54797a2ada01a64b6ea715ca4c3.jpg

 

And here are the 6 choices

Note the two rows for every button

20200114_073928.thumb.jpg.e5f67de76cdefce81794ec37ac9faadc.jpg

 

If you touch the bottom half of the coffee cup it activates the lower row of each button

20200114_073411.thumb.jpg.c9c9b5ad41621779326d139980b65f28.jpg

 

That's how you get a double espresso, etc..

20200114_073437.thumb.jpg.67a012a00ea87bfe316fdb71333ededa.jpg

 

If you touch the two coffee beans you can change strength. This is weak

20200114_073807.thumb.jpg.a673b1e3b1e05d948f76e3bf100a4d5b.jpg

 

And this is strong

20200114_073839.thumb.jpg.58c541bbdf013fe558b22c6244b73e8c.jpg

 

Not all machines are set to allow these choices

He wouldn't even confirm which numbers were removed to get it down to 90 minutes.

 

I was led to believe it was the intermission they eliminated to get it down.  Saw it once, didn't plan to go back to confirm if there is still an intermission.

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.

Nadia is the other SL concierge,  not sure of her previous assignment. 

 

Seas were quite noticeable last night between 8 and 10 pm

 

Actually wearing my Serenade spirit jersey today. Great shirt to wear around the ship

Intermission was less than 20 minutes. So I think between 25 and 35 minutes of production got gutted

bummer, was assuming the new machine was also in the SL along with the DL 

 

Honestly prefer the machine upstairs

 

All about choice
