    MaryCS62 got a reaction from cruisellama in Oasis - Specialty Restaurants for Vegetarians   
    I would imagine Giovannni's is your best bet for on the ship.  Sorry I can't speak to the ports. Giovanni's on Adventure was wonderful, so hopefully will be the same on Oasis

    Good news is, in an environment where sunglasses are required, masks aren’t.

    No, not at all...mallard duck perhaps! I do love the lanyard though, you can tuck it under a T-shirt. I'm really not too concerned about looks on this cruise. I just want to be safe and comfortable.

    Had a table next to us (group of 8ish) that wore the same shorts + muscle shirts all week in the main dining room. My 9yr daughter kept reminding us they were dressed wrong and of course had to say it loudly every night.

    I have to admit that one of the many reasons I'm excited about sailing on Oasis in September is because I'm looking forward to doing exactly this. ?

    And no mention of MTD?  Early is too early. Late is too late.  I book MTD for 6:30-7 every night, just right??

    MaryCS62 got a reaction from Neesa in Currently on Freedom, confused about gratuities.   
    We prepay, but only about a week or so in advance of the cruise -- I forget the # of days, but it's basically the latest we can do it prior to the cruise.  I prefer to prepay, since I don't like seeing the daily charges creeping up, but don't want to give them my money too early either

    They'd have to drag me out of a lazy river at Coco Cay.  (A precedent has been set - I had to be coaxed out of one at the Westin Scottsdale at closing time by hotel staff.  I was unhappy about their decision).

    Free for all to use is how I would do it.
    With the river running right past the other side of the swim-up bar in Oasis Lagoon. You enter your order on the app while getting into the river, and pick up your drink while floating past the bar. ?

    MaryCS62 got a reaction from barbeyg in Can anyone confirm temperature checks are no more?   
    I work in a hospital in a major city, and they eliminated temperature checks in all of our system facilities a couple of months ago.  Masks still required, but temp checks are no more. That being said, we are still required to self monitor, and if you have a fever, you DO NOT report to work.

    I recognize that this isn't answering your question, and it is not my intention to be a troll, but ....
    ... I find the concept of a Baconly room both intriguing and appetizing!

    MaryCS62 got a reaction from Sharla in Help with booking process   
    Good!! We've done our own booking, have transferred bookings to AAA (& had them do 1 for us), but haven't been overly impressed. Then, sometime last year, "our" TA left, & we've been contacted by at least 3 others, so we don't really know who's in charge of our current Anthem (Jan 2022) booking. So, since we still have FCC & have to use it before the end of 2022 (we think, but that's a whole separate issue), we booked Oasis for Aug 2022, and were thinking of giving MEI that one, since everyone here sings their praises.

    Our's isn't till January -- Anthem out of Bayonne, timed to fall between mine & my husband's 60th birthdays. Hope by then they'll have worked out all the kinks, in terms of masks, distancing, etc, and we can just have a good time!  We're all vaxxed, & I may even need to get a booster by then, but we will do what it takes to go!
    Our usual is lunch, drinks, drop off carry-ons in the room, and probably watch sail-away from our balcony, or 270-- it will be a might chilly to be outside ?

    Wow - glad to see crying is a common response and I'm not alone!   When I booked my son's first shot I burst into tears on the phone and the nurse says "happy tears"  me "yea"  her "that's good - let it out, you're not alone I really do get this response a lot"   lol.   
     
    Maybe the ships should have giant tissue boxes beside the hand sanitizers as we all board!   Followed with bubbly!

    First I'm gonna cry because we are finally back on a cruise ship and on Oasis headed to Coco Cay which we have been trying to get to for well over a year. Then we are gonna go to our Central Park balcony and check out all the goodies I ordered for the start of our cruise. Its become tradition that I order a bunch of things for embarkation day, flowers for the wife and note to her and our son. Some sweets like chocolate covered strawberries which my wife and son love. And usually a few other things and then we will sit out on our balcony and take in Central park in all its glory as we have never sailed Oasis.
