  1. I hope you are able to go. Star class is fantastic. It looks like all your previous cruises were with another cruise line? And this will be your first time with Royal? So far out of all our Royal cruises, Oasis is our favorite ship and we are definitely #teamDeck17!
  2. I'm starting this Live Blog with the most optimistic of intentions and utmost hope that we will be able to sail. I wonder if they actually place bets in Vegas as to when cruising will resume... The last Live Blog I wrote was from the middle of February 2020, a few short weeks before cruising was shut down due to the dreaded Covid. On that cruise we did our first Star Class on the Oasis. Since that time, quite a few life altering events have happened. I was laid off work for 2 months. My husband has been working from home since March. He works from our closet and is using an old boat s
  3. The all access tour is not free. They do offer a star class only bridge tour that is complimentary though.
  4. And we’re back Suitcases lined up in our suite for pick up at 7:00 As soon as daughter gets around we will head to Coastal Kitchen for breakfast and Allan will pick us up and whisk us off the ship and back to reality. The Explorer went cruising by this morning. Cannot remember if I mentioned we had Next Cruise come to our suite on the 2nd day and we booked the ABC islands for January 2021 on Explorer
  5. Day 7: Time for the suitcases to show their ugly mugs again. we decided to forego breakfast and just have coffee and bellinis this morning. All access tour was very good. Different from on the Allure. We liked that one better. This particular tour started in the dining room(each stop someone from that area gave a speech) , then galley, I-95, laundry, then the bridge. 2 1/2 hours Izumi for lunch. Very good as always! Back for more packing. B-I-N-G-O - I was down to one number for the free cruise. I’m not that lucky. Tried the pizza at Sorrentos. Not to
  6. Day 6: We had breakfast and drinks delivered this morning then off to the Dolphin and Manatee Encounter. There we had a ton of fun. I kissed a girl dolphin and a boy manatee. I preferred the girl dolphin, so I don’t know what that says about me Would not recommend lunch at the encounter. we purchased the photo shoot and it turned out awesome! grabbed a taxi and went down town for a real lunch and shopping, taxi back and port shopping. Had enough of the shopping back on board, drinks and cookies waiting for us. cleaning up for a CK dinner!
  7. Lots of technical problems, with both equipment and sound systems. The show is EXTREMELY loud inside the room. It actually woke me up and I was wearing earplugs...
  8. 150 Central Park. Excellent food and service!
  9. @Lovetocruise2002 we had 6, private star class session! I do not know the max , but it is a decent sized room...
  10. Escape room: a little prodding helped us not still be in there! It was fun! Used a lot of brain cells I could ill afford to expend.
  11. Ultimate Abyss: terror standing on the glass floor and getting settled on the mat, then it was fun. Not the roller coaster or claustrophobic feeling I thought it was going to be. Hubs came to a screeching halt at the end and had to work his way out...
  12. Sushi class! You will notice hubs put eyes on his shrimp...
  13. The hubster just shot Fresca out his nose after reading this
  14. I’m sure the pressed ham I did will be gone by then we did have a toilet issue and one call to Allan and it was fixed within 15 minutes!
  15. Sunrise at sea and would you look at that? Someone did a pressed ham on the salty back window
  16. Hibachi Izumi was fun last night. Rolled back to the suite and watched a little of the Aqua 80s show and then hit the hay. Slept 10 hours!
  17. What great day 4! Woke early, bellinis, mimosas, pot of coffee and Delaneys standing Starbucks order delivered right on time. We braved the Windjammer after all the liquids, I believe to Allan’s dismay. Miss D can now say she’s been there, done that. I think the deciding factor of not doing that again for her, was there were no mini croissants Allan met us at the elevator with his magic card and whisked off the ship at warp speed. We then bumbled around the market place, smoking the numbers off our credit card then hopped right back on the ship. We placed an order for Johnn
  18. Here’s one for the censors. And he’s going out in public wearing it. We will see how long it takes for the light bulbs to flash on and the censorious looks to set in
