  1. A few years ago we were on Oasis during the Women's World Cup Soccer. The Finals were on Fox and were not being shown on a station that Oasis could show. So, I set up a streaming app to view it on my laptop. Oasis even helped us out with a conference room and projector so that others who were interested in viewing the game could join in. It all worked out great! Certainly streaming a live broadcast is subject to problems, but work with Guest Services or a concierge for any help they might provide.
  2. Our favorite in St. Maarten by far is Captain Bob's Soualiga Destinations snorkel day trip (https://www.soualigadestinations.com/) -- even if you don't snorkel it's a wonderful day! They are just a 5-10 minute walk from the cruise port. They are independent from RCCL but they will get you back on time.
  3. We recently booked a 1-bedroom AquaTheater Suite ?. So excited about that balcony!! First time suite on Oasis-class ship.
  4. Hey, @twangster ==> we gotta get you on a ship asap !! ? !! You've apparently got too much time on your hands, finding and sharing all these corny jokes. If you're writing them from scratch, then you've got another career to pursue ?. I do enjoy the jokes. Thanks.
  5. Can't the captain just enter "Nassau" into his "Wavze" app ? ?
  6. Agree with many others on September 1 -- going to get some 3 and 4-night sailings for Labor Day weekend ?
  7. We prefer deck 14 forward -- quickest access to Solarium and Solarium Bistro (beats the Windjammer for breakfast because it's smaller)
  8. Maybe it is closer to 30 minutes -- the time goes pretty fast. We didn't see a whole lot of fish while on the scooter, except when the divers line you up and attract dozens of fish around you by spreading some chum around. That is a really cool thing to see. If you have a camera, the divers will take some good pictures of your group while the fish swim by. I never saw a turtle on this excursion. You ride the scooters in a little cove that has some rocks and coral, but nothing great. They want you in a fairly safe area so that you don't go out to sea and the divers can keep the group under control. They also don't want you crashing into rocks and coral as each scooter costs about $20,000, according to the captain. Yes, when your group is not on a scooter, you can jump in the water and snorkel or swim on your own. We didn't do that, but some people did. I don't know if the tour provided the masks and flippers or not.
  9. We did this last year and all 5 of us really enjoyed it, because it is such a unique experience. You only get about 15-20 minutes in the scooter because they can only take about 15 people at a time. It was surprisingly a little hot and humid while in the scooter, but once you get used to that, you can just breathe normally. The divers take good care of you and try to ensure you're comfortable and having a good time. If you have your own underwater camera, it makes it even better. Another good thing, was that I was able to wear my glasses while on the scooter, so I could actually see things clearly, unlike when I go snorkeling. You do have to be able to swim a few feet out to your assigned scooter, so you still must be able to swim.
  10. It still all depends on the on-board experience. I won't go if we have to wear a mask ?.
  11. From wikipedia: Lay Berth (Layberth) A berth used for idle (lay-up status) vessels.[3] Vessels being put on the hook can use these as intermediate points between operational use and mothballing at an off shore mooring. These berths will feature very little land side access or equipment except what is needed to secure the vessel.
  12. On St. Maarten, our favorite excursion is Capt. Bob at Soualiga Destinations (https://www.soualigadestinations.com/). We've gone with Capt. Bob our last 3 times in St. Maarten. He is a very reliable independent excursion and just a short walk from the cruise port. You go to a couple of snorkeling sites, stop at an island that has lots of iguanas, stop near the airport to see a plane land close over your head, and beer, drinks, and lunch are provided. The kids will really like the speedboats when they open it up and go fast -- be sure to sit up front! Can't recommend him enough.
