Pre-Gold (1/7)



  1. Go for the surprise! This happened a few weeks before our cruise for someone in my traveling party but it wasn't until about 3 days prior to the cruise like 2:30 pm we noticed the room numbers changed on our reservation that they were notified of the upgrade from junior suite to owners suite!
  2. This happened to someone in our traveling party on our most recent cruise last week. All offers expired except one but they could no longer modify or cancel the offer anymore. This happened a few weeks prior to the departure. We kept waiting and it was about 3 days prior to the cruise that the offer was officially accepted! I've heard others say the same. Good luck! I'd say you may have gotten it! Give us an update when you find out!
  3. Someone in our traveling party had the same thing happen. They placed a royal up offer on about 4 different rooms, the same day we did the same for the room we were in. Sept 17th we placed bids for our 10/10 sailing out of Bayonne, NJ on the Oasis. On approx Sept 30th I checked our room offers and they were still all pending. For the people we were traveling with, they had only one pending and the rest expired. They were unable to modify any offers at that point. We just thought the other offers were rejected and was holding out hope for the one that was left but still couldn't figure out why we couldn't modify the offer. I could modify all of my offers but none had shown expired. So ... fast forward a bit... Oct 7th (3 days before departure) his room number changed on our reservation on the SeaPass. They got an upgrade from Junior Suite to Owner's Suite (the one that was left pending). I read others post a similar experience on different blogs. So maybe you got it! Otherwise you should have the option to cancel it (as mine said, you can modify or cancel it up to 3 hours prior to departure). Also his credit card wasn't charged until the 3 day mark. Here's hoping for you! On the other hand we didn't get ours but it was long after we were on the ship that we got the email about the unsuccessful bids. Hope the info helps.
  4. We just sailed on Oasis out of NJ on 10/10 - 10/17, passenger count given to me was 2845 (just as a reference)
  5. Thanks for all of the updates/photos! It really helps with planning. We are the same sailing next week (10/10). I was just curious if you had heard what the passenger count was for your cruise this week? Thanks!
  6. and see Super Mario of course and there was a very good singer who sang a few songs along with the orchestra. It was a nice event. I’m glad to see things like this slowly return. We did the ifly (I have no pictures only videos taken by Israel for us which was super nice of him.) I did really well this time, I previously tried it on Anthem but that was 4 years ago. I think I am a little better shape these days and I was more relaxed. Because they limit it to 4 people per session (we only had 3 people) we each got to fly twice. I’ve never done any actual skydiving even though we live in the city that is the skydiving capital of the world (Deland, FL) but I wonder if it actually feels similar. I never wanted to do it because I hate to feel like I am falling but when you do this you don’t feel like you are falling at all (I guess because you aren’t) anyways… After iFly we stopped to check on our favorite art install of the ship, the giant cat made of roses. I wonder who brainstormed that up? “Hey let’s add a giant cat made of pink roses to the side of the ship?” What exactly was that person smoking that day? But we like it. I bet it looks cool when other ships pass as well. Lunch was at noon at the Teppanyaki restaurant. It is located up next to the Windjammer on 14 and has beautiful views. We were the only people in the entire restaurant and I will say it was one of the better times we have done this onboard a ship. Due to a little confusion on our part we ended up not getting the soup and salad and honestly I was so glad. We could enjoy our food a lot more not filling up on useless starters Steak and lobster for hubby and steak and scallops for me. Not always the best meal for photos but we enjoyed every bite and look forward to coming back for dinner later in the week. Thanks for the updates! Was that the passenger count for the whole cruise? 728?
