  1. Hi Pascal & Matt! Sign me up!!! Just had to after listening to the Sunday Insiders chat this morning! LOL
  2. We did an Uber to Old San Juan from the airport for $15 + tip on December 27th at around 3PM. Friends did the same trip around midnight for MUCH more. Suggest checking Uber / Lyft when you get to the airport and if their fares are up at that time, take the flat rate taxi.
  3. I'll be in Nassau with my wife later this month on a Saturday port stop (9/28). We've walked the areas near the port (shops, Queen's Staircase, Junkanoo Beach, Wattlings, Graycliffe, etc.) and were thinking of heading over to Paradise Island to check out that area. We like to explore. Any thoughts or recommendations? Taxi vs Ferry? Things to see / do? We weren't planning to do the water park or beach as we'll be at Coco Cay the next day.
  4. Has anyone heard the status of Oasis’ propulsion system. I’m seeing posts on Facebook that she will be towed to Spain. That seems like a really long tow.
  5. It would appear Oasis has been moved to a new location within the Shipyard.
  6. Apparent crew video as they were leaving Oasis.
  7. Oasis appears to be listing to starboard side in this video.
  8. @Karahvacatimes I want to try the railway Matt did in St. Kitts. Looked really interesting. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/05/23/excursion-focus-caribbean-scenic-railway-tour-st-kitts
  9. We booked this tour based on your recommendation KLA and we are so exited to be on St Maarten next Wednesday for this tour! Hoping we get "The Mailman" as our guide! Also hoping we can hop off the bus in Philipsburg for a bit, even if it means we have to get back to the ship on our own.
  10. Heck no! I just made Platinum on my last cruise and I’ve been on two RCLB Group Cruises and never felt left out!
  11. I'm very late to the party, but I don't recall seeing a report on the first drink. Inquiring minds want to know!
  12. Truth be told, I've met Michael Poole, so he is real! Little known fact, Micheal sometimes cheats on Stella.........with PBR.
  13. Empress of the Seas. Aug 11-15, 2016.
  14. Matt: You have really built a great community here at RoyalCaribbeanBlog.com! Rich Triplett was on Navigator of the Seas this weekend and was kind enough to get some photos (and a video which I cannot load here) of our room. It confirmed a lot of what I had read about these rooms online (including the pole in the room) but a picture is, indeed, worth a thousand words!
  15. Our "kids" are in college so the schedule works pretty good for us. Kids are away so it's time for Mom & Dad to play! See ya on the Feb 2017 cruise!
  16. Thanks Matt. I came across the same video searching last night. Appears to me this is one of the lower level rooms on deck 2 or 3. I was discussing one of these with Stephanie at MEI and then she found this corner room on deck 7 with two windows. It's cabin 7506 at the front of the ship. I've seen a few photos that might be this type of room and have run across several threads discussing these rooms around the internet. Generally, the reviews are positive. Your input appreciated. You have SO much more experience than me with these things.
  17. Matt: I mis-read the email from MEI. It's an "I" category room, not "P2" which is what I reported on the scope tonight. We're a go for 2017! Still looking for photos and will check out all your suggestions.
  18. I tried google with no luck yesterday. Will try YouTube and other sites recommended when I get to my PC. We have been looking at ocean view and panoramic ocean view. Currently have a hold on 7506 but it's almost as much as a balcony and very far forward.
