I really like the Playmakers bar, I hope that becomes a standard on all ships.  One thing I always felt was lacking on my cruises was a good setting for watching games.

I'm not a sports person at all, so I freely admit that I have no understanding of sports watching culture at all. But still... I really don't get why folks would want to spend a chunk of a gorgeous sunny day out on the ocean with all the other things to do on a ship, sitting inside and watching TV.

Does anyone else remember when they used to play the same 3-week-old soccer game over and over again in the "sports bar" on the Radiance class ?  It used to be just outside the casino.  How far the internet at sea has come !  TV reception/schedule, and most particularly, sports, has definitely come a LONG way since those days !!

I understand.  We all have our passions.  Why do people spend time in the casino or sitting at a bar or in the theater playing Bingo or trivia?  I think of it as another form of on board entertainment and a chance to meet total strangers with the same interest as me.

There's something for everyone.

Well now that you put it that way I dont either!  You ruined it!!!

 

But in all seriousness, its more for at night.  If its sunny out I'd much rather be outside.  But its just another nice option to have after dinner or late night.

We are going on a B2B June 14th and 21st, we also cannot wait.

Wife will be upset about Sabor, this was one of our favorites besides the Sabor on Liberty, but I think she will get over it with El Loco Fresh.

I've gotten her now to where she loves Izumi, so that will be a win.

We are on FOS June 14, too! Looking forward to cruising on her again since we had many wonderful voyages on her when she was in PORT CANAVERAL (which is NOT Orlando). Will miss Sabor and their great guacamole. Looking forward to Izumi. It does sound like many of same upgrades going on FOS as were put on other ships. Was on Mariner a month ago and we LOVED the laser tag! Loved the Solarium, too. The Sky Pad was surprisingly not a hit with our active and athletic girls, or either of the active and athletic men in our party. We all tried it. Some with goggles, some not. All agreed not going to do again since so many other things to do. Question, why is the Italian dining option staying Giovanni's and not switching to Jamie's?

We spent quite a bit of time in Playmakers in the evenings on the Mariner cruise with multiple generations of our family last month. Yes, many sporting events were on the TVs, but we all were also playing Jenga at the table, and other games. We used Playmakers as a fun rendezvous point (you aren't bored waiting for everyone to reassemble after various activities).

Jamie Oliver went bankrupt, don't know if that is why, speculation on my part, plus Jamies is only currently on Q and O class ships.

Free foosball table on Mariner in Playmakers was a fun surprise!

You and DW can debate that after she's had El Loco.

When you want some real Mexican food come to Oklahoma or South Texas, IMO. (Get some of the Texan's excited now)

Doesn't real Mexican food come from Mexico?😉

I'm schedule to go on FoS in Aug 2020..  If Sabor really is going away as everyone assumes, you'd think they wouldn't still be selling Sabor on our Cruise Planners.  If you know it's going away, why leave it in the planner and have folks disappointed when it gets cancelled?  Just like they don't add the key into our planner until a specific time, they should be able to remove / add the correct specialty dining.  at least I'd think they would.
