    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. ?

    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.

    You can only bring food off if it is in sealed packaging, so anything made fresh on the ship does not qualify.  If you have snack bars, chips, etc that you brought with you on the ship, you can take those off, or sealed water bottles. Otherwise, no other food or drink

    MaryCS62 reacted to Matt in Sailings out of Bayonne to begin in August -- supposedly   
    I'm sharing this, but not ready to post it on the blog quite yet...
    Source
    BAYONNE, NJ - After extensive discussions with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, local and state health officials, and the Office of Emergency Management, Royal Caribbean is planning to sail its first cruise ship out of Port Liberty in Bayonne in August, TAPinto Bayonne has learned.
    “Right now, we’re hearing the first ship will leave in August at half capacity,” said Mayor Jimmy Davis. “This means that if the ship can accommodate 6,000, then 3,000 will be allowed on board.”
    Royal Caribbean suspended operations from Bayonne last March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    MaryCS62 got a reaction from emmef in Deparkation and Porter use   
    We use porters before and after -- if our family of 4 is traveling, older DD is in a wheelchair, and I'm usually pushing her, which means there are only 2 people to carry even the "carry-on" bags.  I can hang a couple of lightweight bags off the wheelchair handles, but that's about it.  The porters after the cruise are worth the tip, in my opinion, as we are never going to be the early rise, carry our own bags off the ship.  I've gotten better at packing, but the disabled DD comes with more equipment, supplies, etc, so we really can't manage otherwise.

    Whether you carry your own bags off or put them outside your stateroom, a porter can be extremely helpful. They can help locate your bags in the terminal as well as get through security, load them into your car. Just tip them well, at least $2 a bag IMO. They work for tips and they work hard!

    Random hijack of the thread. Are they able to cater to dietary restrictions (ie, gluten) at chef's table? Or is it pretty much an as-is thing?

    MaryCS62 reacted to KWong in How much do you learn in the Sushi making class   
    Did this last year. Would agree that the class is worth it. It's a lot of fun, and it's a LOT of food (what you make can easily satisfy two people). Everything is set up for you, sure, but I feel like making the rice and frying the shrimp would be too hectic for the number of people they are teaching. Plus I'm likely to eat that freshly fried shrimp before it comes close to becoming maki.
